We know that 75 % of the earth’s area is covered with water and the rest 25 percent is land. Out of which 97 % of water is saline, and only 3% water is drinkable. To be precise the percentage of fresh water on earth is 2.5–2.75%; 1.75–2% is in frozen form and the rest is locked in moisture form in soil or swamps. Even after such an eye-opener, are we sure that we don’t wastewater? Every time if there is water left in our buckets, or water bottles, or jugs, we throw the leftover water, assuming that the water left is no longer drinkable.
Even while using RO, i.e, Reverse Osmosis filters to acquire pure drinking water, we waste a lot of water. However, with KENT’s ZERO Water Wastage Technology, there is no water wastage while purification in the RO. We must keep in mind that water is not perishable, but fresh groundwater is perishable, and we must take the necessary steps to preserve the same.
