A good quality water purifier can last for a long time, but it depends on its maintenance. It can be run for a long time only through proper cleaning and maintenance.
Apart from this, water purifiers should be cleaned regularly, because dirty water can also harm your health. Without proper maintenance and care, your water purifier will not function properly and could result in you drinking unpure water.
Here in this article, we are going to share with you some tips on how to maintain RO water purifier.
After buying an RO water purifier, it can be easily operated for 10 years, but for this, special care has to be taken for maintenance.
Maintenance of RO Membrane
When water is pushed under pressure in a water purifier, it passes through the membrane. The thin RO membrane works to separate the dirt from the water.
This is the central part of the water purifier, so it is important to take care of its regular cleaning and maintenance, otherwise, you may have to drink dirty water. At the same time, the RO membrane should be changed every 3 to 4 months to avoid clogging of pores.
When to change the filter of the RO water purifier
Change the filter of the RO water purifier every three months. Actually, the dirt coming out of the water continuously clogs the filter. Failure to clean the water purifier frequently will affect both its cleaning efficiency and the quality of the water.
Although RO water purifiers take at least 3 to 12 stages to clean, it is important to schedule filter changes regularly. However, several types of filters exist, including sediment filters and carbon filters.
Talking about the sediment, it must be changed once a year, it prevents dirt, dust, and soil from entering the RO Membrane. At the same time, the carbon filter must also be changed once a year. The carbon filter helps remove chlorine and other dangerous contaminants.
Don’t Ignore Water Dripping or Leakage
If water is dripping from the water purifier or if there is any kind of leakage, then instead of ignoring it, call a technician. Sometimes excessive water leakage can damage the water purifier, so immediately call a technician and get it repaired. At the same time, do not tamper with yourself due to water leakage, it can also damage the machine.

That’s why it is better to clean it with water after cleaning it with a scrubber two to three times and then leave it for a while. If all the water comes out, wipe it with a clean cloth. At the same time, wipes can be used to sanitize it from the outside. Do this for 2 to 3 months.
Don’t forget to clean the pipes and taps
Not only the RO tank but also the cleanliness of the pipes present in the RO tank is very important. For this, replace this pipe every two years. In addition to the pipe, it is important for cleaning the tap.
