Stage three sees the RO filter weed out heavy metals, scales or any other organic substance. The PAC filter in stage four absorbs any remaining odor or organic substance, and effectively improves the taster of water. In the last step, the UV light inside the purifier kills any remaining bacteria or viruses with a claimed 99.99 percent efficiency.

Water Purifier with smart capabilities

Being a part of Xiaomi’s Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, it is natural that the new water purifier comes with smart capabilities. By connecting to the Mi Home app, you will be able to keep track of the water level in the tank, TDS level of water, and the life of each filter in real-time.

Another highlight of the Mi Smart Water Purifier is its DIY capabilities. In essence, the filters are designed in a way that they can be removed and replaced in just 30 seconds. This frees up Indian households from the shackles of annual maintenance costs.
