The situation of COVID-19 is always serious. In addition to personal safety protection, people should be careful about the water and food they ingest.

However, the news of COVID-19 detected in non-drinking water in Paris remind us that the virus might survive in the water. In any case, caution should be taken.

Several major epidemics in history have been linked to the failure of sewers and drinking water to separate and the contamination of drinking water.

At present, we all attach great importance to the safety of drinking water. Many people want to install a water purifier in their home. However, many friends who have installed or want to install a water purifier may wonder:

Can a water purifier filter Coronavirus?

COVID-19 is reported to be about 100 ~ 125 nm in size under electron microscopy. Theoretically, COVID-19 can be filtered as long as the filter precision is higher than 1 nm.

Choose the right water filter.

Currently, in domestic water purification products, only water purifiers containing RO Membrane can achieve this filtration accuracy. The filtration accuracy of RO systems is 0.0001 micron, namely 0.1 nanometer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Reverse Osmosis Systems have a very high effectiveness in removing viruses (for example, Enteric, Hepatitis A, Norovirus, Rotavirus).

Visit CDC for more information.

Therefore, you can choose a tankless water purifier with RO system. In addition, if you have a RO water purifier at home, you should pay attention to the replacement of the filter element.
