So, if you want to enjoy safer, cleaner, and better-tasting water without needing to boil it, you’ll definitely need a water purifier. Especially, one with a good filtration system that can filter while purifying your water from all impurities.
“Water purifier? Wait, are water purifiers and water filters the same?” The short answer is no. What you’ll want to know is that water purifiers can remove more contaminants than water filters!

Unlike most water filters and purifiers that have to be installed and connected to the pipes, a water filter-purifier pitcher such as the Beulife 3.5L Drinking Water Purifier & Pitcher requires no installation. It works like a kettle, except without needing to boil water.
Suitable for home and office, its 3-layer filtration process produces healthy water that is free from pollution particles. The product utilises a resin filter to carry out its deionisation as its main purification method. This method allows for not just softening water but also removes other organic contaminants.
A small downside is that the filter will need to be replaced every 60 days. If you’re worried about forgetting to change the filter, the pitcher has an LCD display timer that counts down 60 days, serving as a reminder for filter replacement.
The terms of both water purifier and water filter are often used interchangeably. But the truth is, both are quite different from each other.
On water filters, they remove waterborne bacteria, protozoa, and pollutants using physical barriers. While they’re able to remove even the tiniest of particles, water filters are not very effective against viruses and chemical contaminants, as these can easily pass through the barrier due to their size.
Water purifiers, on the other hand, not only remove what water filters remove, but also minerals from the water, particularly biological contaminants. It does so through 4 purification methods: reverse osmosis, UV treatment, distillation, and deionization. They can even remove viruses, which are smaller contaminants than bacteria.
Compared to water filters, water purifiers are therefore more thorough in the filtration process, resulting in water that is almost 100% free from impurities.
