WATER woes have become a thorn in the side of Malaysians over recent months but did you know some experts have shared that while local water treatment plants would make water safe to drink, the catch is in the distance from the plant to your tap.
After treatment, water used for daily activities would move through a preexisting maze of pipes - some reported to be decades old - that can add harmful contaminants to your water supply.
While clear water might be running from the faucet, are we confident that it is safe enough to drink?
Arming yourself with a trusty water purifier to filter out impurities, odours and other contaminants could steady your nerves but with the mushrooming of water purifiers, which product do we choose?
To allay drinking water concerns, South Korea’s premium home appliances brand SK magic may help you make the smart choice.
Providing Malaysians with the latest Korean technologically advanced lifestyle, SK magic introduced a range of tankless JIKSOO technology water purifiers.
This range comes without a tank; instead, it is installed with 304 durable stainless steel pipes and uses an advanced and comprehensive filter system to deliver clean drinking water.
Aside from its tankless system, it comes equipped with the brand’s JIKSOO technology with added benefits.
Five facts on JIKSOO water purifiers
1. It is cleverly named.
JIK in Korean means never stagnant and SOO on the other hand means clean, pure and full of minerals – which befits water purification needs.
2. Say goodbye to harmful microbes.
The tankless technology also comes equipped with UV protection and is capable of sterilising 99% of harmful microbes every two hours automatically.
3. Now, say goodbye to microplastics.
It is one of the only tankless systems that can filter microplastics due to its nano-pore size of some 0.0001-nanometer.
4. Easy to use temperature settings.
At a touch of a button, adjust the temperature of your desired drinking water - hot, cold or just right, at room temperature - at your convenience. Plus, in-built settings are specifically targeted for everyday hot water consumption, like its optimised water temperature for baby formula, tea or coffee and instant noodles.
5. Saves electricity.
It also provides an instant heating and cooling system, so electricity is consumed only when water is dispensed.
Furthermore, the brand shared that its tankless water purifiers use 81% less power compared to other water purifiers on the market, which would only cost approximately 11 cents a day, helping you save up to 73% on your electricity bill.
Aiming to lead the way with tankless water purification products, SK magic is committed to meeting the needs and demands of clean water, with its water purifiers JIKSOO Hyper, JIKSOO Rich and newly launched JIKSOO Ria.
It also comes with a child-friendly button that dispenses room temperature water when activated.
Staying true to the range, the JIKSOO Rich minimalist design blends in easily with any kitchen decor but unlike the rest, this water purifier is equipped with an ice-making function. With its own special feature to produce some 750g of ice, it also uses UV sterilisation to guarantee clean and safe ice cubes.
SK magic aims to bring the latest technology to the public - it is time to say Goodbye old, Hello magic. Grab the newly launched JIKSOO Ria at an introductory price of RM75 per month.
