Are there any good RO + UV water purifiers that doesn't need to be hooked up to a running tap and will rather take water from a reservoir.
I doubt you will find any which are electronic (having UV). I am sure you wont find a RO one. Reason for both being they need to pass the water through membranes(for RO) and micron mesh filters for filtering out the sediments/impurities in the water for which they need a min pressure of 3 ~4 bar. So what you suggesting is not helping their mechanism. Almost all filters work this way.Are there any good RO + UV water purifiers that doesn't need to be hooked up to a running tap and will rather take water from a reservoir.
Where will you put the reservoir for providing the water supply. Doesn't your tap come from the overhead tank.I was assuming that a purifier with RO stage will have a pump built in to generate necessary pressure. You cannot rely on the pressure generated from running taps. In fact, I used a Aquagard UV Purifier at the last place I stayed and the pressure in tap was rarely good for us, so I had to have a external pump installed.
I was looking for a tap less setup because taps run dry in summer and we should have a way to purify water directly.
