The Best Borehole Water Purifiers in Kenya
Due to the ever increasing scarcity of safe drinking water in our nation, sinking of boreholes has become necessary. The problem is borehole water is mostly not good for direct human consumption and needs to be purified to get rid of impurities and organisms that might be harmful to the human body. In this post we will be looking at the best borehole water purifiers in Kenya.
Why borehole water purifiers are necessary
Boreholes are essential installations in the ever increasing demand for water in both urban and rural areas. This is as a result of increase in population, industrialization, farming as well as climate change. Climate change has mainly been blamed for low water output from natural sources which is true but we have been overlooking the other factors that have been responsible for scarcity of water for consumption and house hold use.
Because of these factors, sinking boreholes has been a necessity and in fact there is an ever increasing demand for borehole drilling services. And with that also the need to invest in good borehole water purifiers.

Type of filtration
The type of filtration depends with how much of impurities also known as total dissolved solids(TDS) the water has.
For water with high fluoride and total dissolved matter/solids
Underground water with high mineral content requires a more vigorous way of removing these minerals. Using membrane technology, we are able to remove excess minerals from water and attain up to above 96% reduction levels. This is possible while maintaining essential minerals that are healthy for the body. This can easily be achieved through reverse osmosis.
Reverse Osmosis: The RO system purifies water by filtering all organic and inorganic constituents with a semi – permeable membrane system. The RO system separates the incoming feed stream into two effluent streams:
- The permeate (treated water) that passes through Reverse Osmosis membranes contains greatly reduced quantities of dissolved mineral salts and organics (typically ≥ 96% rejection ratio). The designed recovery of the RO machine is 50%-75%.
- The concentrate (reject water) is the stream that contains impurities separated from the permeate stream which passes gently across the membrane surface. A certain minimum flow of ‘concentrate’ is necessary to keep the RO membranes from ‘fouling’ due to the removed mineral salts and organic contents.
We recommend that water from the borehole to be put in a storage tank.
STEP 1: water is pumped through a filter comprising of sand to remove any suspended matter that will cause blockage in the RO membranes.
STEP 2: Dose an anti-scalant into the water to prevent scaling of the RO membranes.
STEP3: PH adjustment using a chemical dosing pump complete with a chemical tank to maintain the natural taste and stability of water.
STEP4: RO treatment- The “pre-treated” water then be passes through a Reverse Osmosis Unit to reduce the TDS and condition the water.
STEP 5: UV for sterilization- The water will then be pumped through a cartridge filter before bottling is done or chlorination if the water is distributed directly to points of use.
For water treatment with less fluoride and total dissolved matter:
It has the following types of filtration:
- Sand filtration
- Activated carbon filter
- Sediment filters
- Reverse osmosis
- Micro filtration
Apart from filtration, it also has another function of disinfecting the water called UV disinfection Pre-treatments (i.e, chlorination/antiscalant/PH adjustment dosing). This is the final process.
Stages of filtration/treatment
The best borehole water purifiers should be capable of treating water through the above 5 stages as explained. This ensures that you are getting high quality and very safe water for drinking and use even for industrial purposes.
Another consideration to make when choosing the right borehole water purifier is the volume of water it can produce per hour. This should be determined by your water needs or rate of consumption. We have borehole water purifiers that range between 250 litres/hour to 3000 litres/hour.
