Xiaomi Water Purifier Use Experience
Xiaomi water purifier principle the author does not talk about, here mainly talk about the use of feeling. What we are most concerned about is the problem of water flow and the problem of water quality. Xiaomi water purifier lentils support APP control, the whole interface is very simple. You can see clearly the TDS index, as well as the details of the three filter elements, with details of the use of water at the bottom. You can see the amount of pure water produced.
In terms of current. This water purifier has a built-in 3L water storage tank, which will automatically fill up when not in use. So that the flow of water is still very large when the faucet is turned on, enough for daily use. See the following figure for details.
In general, it takes only 32 seconds to receive 1.5 liters of water and 4 seconds to fill a glass of water (350ml capacity). The speed of water is completely within the acceptable range.
Of course, the author deliberately put all the water in the piggy bank, and then tested the flow of water. It is obvious that the water has slowed down. See the following figure for details. In this case, it takes about 1 minute and 36 seconds to fill a bottle of mineral water (555ml capacity) and 40 seconds to fill a glass of water (350ml capacity).
You can rest assured about the flow of water, after all, very few people use more than 3L of water at once, even if it is within an acceptable range. Of course, the storage time of 3L water is also very short, about 15 minutes.
In terms of water quality. Although APP brought its own TDS test, the author used Xiaomi water quality TDS test pen to test purified water and tap water. The author received three glasses of water respectively. From left to right, the first cup of pure water in the morning, straight out of pure water, tap water.
Through the test, the TDs value of the former two purified water is 7 and 8 respectively. The purity is extremely high, the TLS value of tap water reaches 189, the visible purity is general.
The Issue With TDS
While we have tested the Mi Smart Water Purifier’s capabilities based on Total Dissolved Solids or TDS count, it is a generic way of understanding water quality. As the term suggests, TDS represents total dissolved solids in water, which includes minerals and chemicals. However, there is no representation of chlorine, sulphate, nitrate, magnesium and other individual elements present in the water. Another problem is that TDS count doesn’t reveal whether dissolved impurities or minerals were removed from water. Some of these chemicals and elements we will teste for individually and we will add other tests to our review.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Water Purifier has worked well for us during the past one year. It gives us a nice amount of smart features such as real-time TDS monitoring and good water purification. It has solid build quality. The filters are super easy to replace and the app is easy to navigate and use. Overall, our impressions of the Mi Smart Water Purifier are very positive. We can recommend it for those who need a water purifier with some smart functionalities and a clean design. It is available from Flipkart, Amazon.in, mi.com and Mi Home stores.
