kent-primeKent Prime water purifier is the latest addition to the Kent product family. Kent Prime holds the same features of Kent Grand Plus model and is just an upgraded version with cosmetic changes when compared to Grand Plus. We’ve got our hands on the Kent Prime and here’s what’s on offer

Technology

Kent Prime is build on RO + UV + UF with TDS controller technology. Unlike only RO + UV water purifiers, Kent’s mineral RO technology removes dissolved impurities like chemicals, pesticides, rust etc. in water while retaining essential natural minerals that are required in drinking water.

Key Features

  • 9 liter water storage capacity
  • Computer controlled filter change and UV alarm
  • Fully automatic with auto start and off operations
  • Switch mode power supply built in to handle voltage fluctuations

Design

Kent Prime has an improved body design when compared to Kent Grand Plus, especially the clean body cover than the transparent one (which looked ugly on a wall when compared to Aquaguard or Pureit). Prime has a larger 9 liter water storage tank . The body is designed to be wall mounted only.

As similar to other Kent models, Prime is build with ABS food grade plastic. The power consumption is marginally higher on 60W. Kent Prime can filter 15 liters per hour with a maximum duty cycle of 75 liters per day.

The average time frame for replacements or filters is 6 months, this would cost Rs 2000 to 2500 approx.

Should you buy one.?

Kent Prime is an upgraded version of Kent Grand Plus with a better looking design and a larger water tank. It holds the same RO + UV + UF technology with all the bells, whistles and indicators. Kent Prime is priced Rs 19,000.00 (MRP), the same price as Grand Plus. If you are looking for a Kent specific model, then Prime is the right one. At the same price point, there are better models like Aquaguard Geneus and Pureit Ultima with advanced features. It would be nice to have a digital dashboard on Kent models like we’ve seen on Pureit or Aquaguard.
