Special Features of the KENT Grand+
The Grand+ uses a double purification method of RO + UV + UF, and comes installed with a TDS controller. The technology can be used to purify brackish, tap water and municipal water. The reverse osmosis process removes particles that are as small as ions from the water. The semi-permeable membrane helps in removing salts from portable or brackish water. During the UV process, the UV rays penetrate into the micro-organisms. The UV rays are absorbed by the DNA of the pathogen, which in turn affects the reproductive capacity of the pathogens. The TDS controller adds the necessary minerals to water, which are normally removed during the purification process.
Storage capacity is one of the essential factors that you need to consider when looking for a water purifier. One of the advantages of KENT Grand+ is it has a storage capacity of 8 liters. The storage capacity of the purifier enables you to get clean and safe drinking water even if there is no electricity.

The technologically advanced water purification system helps in purifying impurities from all kinds of water. Whether you need to purify water from bore-well water, overhead tanks or hard water, KENT Grand+ has got you covered.
The Grand+ RO system comes with UV and filter change alarms that notify when the purifier needs a filter change. If the water purifier is not changed within the next 60 hours, the purifier will stop functioning.
KENT Grand+ is completely automatic with an on-off feature that self-detects when the water needs to be purified and when it needs to stop. The system also has sensors for the RO membrane and the UV lamp, and if either of the two stops functioning, the purification process is also stopped.
