Drinking water - Best filteration/purification systems
As I drink a lot of plain water, (really - almost 2 litre for Bukak Puasa and another 2 for Sahor sekali gus), I am thinking to add some "value" in the water that I'm going to drink. Now it's just a boiled after meter filtered water.

If I am not mistaken, the topic on filteration system was discussed before. However there was no conclusive suggestion which system is the best.

I am looking for the best system which can fulfill my needs. The more I read on it, the more I got fenin. Macam-macam ada, distilled lar, Diamond lar, alkaline lar, from US lar, Korea lar, Japan lar and ect.

I would go for Alkaline (but difficult to get a good source).

Distilled or RO is next...(I am now taking RO).

Meter water has lots of "unpleasant"...always filter with a good activated carbon filter.

Particle filter(like sand, mesh or cartridge) only removes solids. It can remove dissolved stuff(which are very damaging and unhealthy).

Memang alkaline water is good but the cost and reliability of these machine are things that I always question.

Most of water treatment companies make you pay a lot to maintain the equipment. They don't have a good way to test if the equipment is producing(for alkaline water, to measure the level) the required quality.

I used Diamond for a few year...very good system but better to fit a prefilter(mesh and ceramic).It has ceramic as 1st stage.

When I shifted to Semenyih(using well water), the system gave traces of some stuff in water. I stopped using it since shifted to Semenyih.

Now with well water, I have

1. Cart filter
2. GAC(carbon)
3. Find sand
4. RO system

Re: Drinking water - Best filteration/purification systems
There is unfortunately no perfect system but there are choices. Like NPK, I prefer RO where the cost and the quality I can control. How?

I first encounter RO when in California where the water comes from the Colorado river and is sent by huge pipes about 3 times a persons average height in diameter. The water when it arrives tastes metallic. The majority of the households uses RO. My expensive lesson was to bring one home. The local solution:
Build your own RO system from locally available components. Damage to pocket is RM600 max. Rm300 being the norm but not recommended. Plenty of spare parts and diy service. You can either call cheap or economical.

Sounds interesting the DIY part. Care to share how it's done. I bought mine from some direct selling company and it cost close to RM3K.

I now hear that RO is not that good. It seems the filtration is too good and removes all the mineral contents. Someone else is now promoting UV treated filtration system.

I am confused. Any one can share some ideas?
