    Water purification is based on TDS control. This TDS gives us information about how much minerals are present in the water.

    RO water purification: In general water contains ions like calcium, magnesium. In order to remove excess of ions from water, reverse osmosis is used.

    UV treated water: Ultra violet rays are passed in the water which kills bateria but this process does not remove excess of water.

    Mineral water composed of dissolved substance along with gases.
