Kent Supreme water purifier is based on the patented KENT Technology that removes even dissolved impurities while retaining the essential natural minerals and offers double purification of RO followed by UV/UF.
Build: Kent Supreme is built with high quality ABS plastic in dimensions of L 430 x W 270 x H 630 mm. The water purifier has a large storage capacity 18 liter (9 + 9) where it can store 9 liters of purified water and 9 liters of rejected water separately. We like this new feature of storing rejected water as it can be used for washing utensils or plants. Kent Supreme can purify a maximum of 75 liters per day, which is sufficient for more than a dozen people.
Our tests reveal that the device can purify a little more than 13 liters of water per hour even thought Kent claims it to be 15 liters per hour. Kent Supreme looks quite big and weighs over 10.8 Kgs.
Technology: Kent claims to have the best water purification technology with RO + UF + UV and a TDS controller. Water is passed through sediment filter to remove sand or mud, carbon filter to remove bacteria, UF (Ultrafiltration) membrane to filter virus, salt, metals, radio active matter etc and finally the RO filter to get pure and healthy drinking water. RO filter is 1/10000 size of a single hair, which makes it smaller than bacteria.
Design: Kent Supreme can only be mounted on a wall. It looks quite huge and can certainly be an odd object in your modular kitchen, unless it is covered. It weighs over 10.8 Kgs without water. The device is equipped with computer controlled operation with filter change and UV fail alarms. Push fit components are quite neat and leak proof.
Service: Kent offers 1 year warranty on electrical and mechanical parts and 6 months warranty on carbon filter. The company also has a nation wide hotline number to log any service complaints. Their service response is quite quick as there are many 3rd party service providers who fix or replace filters. Installation is done free of cost at customers premises, this applies to online purchases as well.
Price: Kent Supreme is priced at ₹ 20,000 and most dealers offer the product at a lower price between 17,000 to 18500. Amazon.in offers Kent Supreme at ₹ 13,999.00 (inclusive taxes) with EMI options and free delivery.
Summary: Kent Supreme is a feature packed product with all the bells and whistles. It is decked with industry standard water purification technology and is quite reliable on after sales service. However, Kent Supreme looks huge and certainly looks like an odd object hanging on your wall. But, at a lucrative online price of 13,999 from Amazon.in, it is quite hard to have Kent Supreme as a second option. Flipkart.com has Kent Supreme listed at ₹ 15,800.
