Differences between a Water Filter and a Water Purifier  in Malaysia

In line with this, it is advisable to consume sufficient water daily to stay healthy. However, the quality of water you consume also plays an important role to maintain your health. As such, choosing the best water purifier for you and your family is essential.

Even so, with so many brands to choose from, getting the right one will depend on many factors. There is also a common misconception that a water filter in Malaysia functions similarly to a water purifier when they are entirely different.

Therefore, the present article reveals some mind-blowing facts on the differences between Malaysia’s water purifier and a water filter. This article will also unveil how you can choose the best water filter for your home to keep you hydrated and healthy at all times.

The Key to Better Health and Optimum Performance: Water

It is reported that every part of our human body requires water to function. Many studies have shown that the digestive system uses water to assist in the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Moreover, water can aid the excretory system remove unwanted waste from the body more effectively. Other benefits of drinking water include regulating body temperature, improving blood oxygen circulation and preventing illnesses.

Water Purifier vs. Water Filter in Malaysia: The Showdown

As the names of each of these systems suggest, water filters and water purifiers differ in the way they remove unwanted contaminants from the water. The effectiveness of these two systems in eliminating these substances also differ from each other.

Firstly, water filters are water cleansing systems that separate pollutants in the water using physical barriers or filters. Much like using honey to attract bees, the best water filters in Malaysia attract and hold on to bacteria, microorganisms, and contaminants, preventing them from flowing to places like your kitchen sink.

However, water filters are not enough to provide you with pure and clean water. This is because the physical filter used in these water filtration systems may not be small enough to catch certain microorganisms, heavy metals or chemicals. As such, to truly obtain safe, drinkable water, water purifiers are ideal as they can remove almost all unwanted substances, no matter how small.

A water purifier is a water purification system that removes 90 to 95% of contaminants in the water. Through a water purifier, various kinds of bacteria, microbes, toxins, sediment, and other types of pollutants that cannot be seen with bare eyes are effectively purified and removed, providing only the cleanest water to you and your family. These contaminants are removed via purification processes like UV treatment, distillation, deionisation and reverse osmosis.
