RO water purifier can filter undesirable contaminants up to 95% with fine filtration up to 0.0001 micron. It can even filter ground water to get pure water with no contaminants and minerals. Because it does not contain minerals, it is still the question whether this type of water purifier is dangerous or not?

And the source of human minerals is not from drinking water mainly. We get minerals from the food we consume in each day. So it is concluded that RO water purifier is not dangerous.
And because each drinking water purifier has different properties, the best way to choose the best water purifier is based on the suitability of each home. Which type of water purifier and what are the limitations of installing? Most important thing that you need to pay attention is the quality of the product.
