Ensuring access to purified and uncontaminated water not a seasonal priority. However, during the monsoon, water borne diseases like typhoid, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, diarrhea, malaria and dengue spread rampantly and anyone encountering contaminated water is at greater risk of being affected. To ensure that the water you consume at home is free from any water-borne diseases and contaminants, you need to get a water purifier with the latest technology onboard – preferably without costing a bomb.

To make things easier, we’ve curated the best water purifiers with various filtration configurations under Rs. 10000, so that you can pick the one that suits your needs.
