There are a lot of inline filters used in commercial environment, notably by large consumers and in swimming pools. Basically they have of a particle filter which may be sand bed for large systems or filter material (sieve, ceramic or paper) depending upon the volume of water. All these filters need periodic cleaning, generally by back flushing.

Industries use huge quantity of water and set up large RO plants, but these are generally take water off rivers/canals so wastage is not much of a concern for them.

If you are interested you can look up sites of industrial water conditioning manufacturers.

Guys,

I was wondering which would be a good security safe/locker to buy for home use? I see a lot of options from Godrej, but am a little thrown off by the number of choices. Are there any other makers better than Godrej in India?

Does anyone here use these things at home - and what is your general feedback?

I have seen the Kaff models in Delhi and they seem to be sturdy. I have a 20 year old BPL gas oven which is still going strong.

This is excellent - thank you! After scouting around, I found that Elica is available in a few places within Bombay city. But, now thanks to you I have a choice!

I have a Godrej Taurus white. It's good and got a great deal on it for about 4500 from future bazaar about 8 months back. Normal price is close to 6k
I think it's a good investment. We keep passports, spare cash and important docs in it

Is it fire & water proof? More than theft, I am more concerned about storing documents and the like safe in case of a disaster.

No it is not fire or water proof, I think. Bought it since I travel a lot and see this model in most hotels...

Okay, so here is the Taurus: http://www.hometown.in/Products/Home...cid=CU00049201

About 5.5k.

And here is the Coffer model: http://www.hometown.in/Products/Home...cid=CU00049201

About 6k.

Both are not certified to be tamper proof. Both are not fire or water resistant.

My other question is, where do you mount these things? The safest way to mount them is within a wall, so you have 3 sides protecting it. But what if you have a cupboard? Mounting it in a cupboard is practically useless, I think - since you can just steal the entire unit, head to someplace quiet and whack the door out in peace.

There are two bolts provided and holes at bottom and back of the safe on the inside. You should secure this to a wall. My cupboard is in wall or built-in and so suits this just fine.

Has anyone any experience with Rainbow hydro cleaning vacuum + air purifier? I had a demo today. Costs 1.32L and seemed very effective in pulling dust from my sofa and mattress.
Reviews on amazon are mixed.

Can anyone recommend an electric outdoor or indoor grill. Something that can be placed on a balcony or confined area?

I have the charcoal based Weber, more work, more messy, but more tasty!
Bought in Oct-2011 for Rs.9,519.
The Chimney-Starter (also Weber) cost Rs.2,900.

I know charcoal ones are great with taste having tried my hand at this while on a road trip. But you know the issues when staying in an apartment. I have a big balcony, so was looking at an electric one.

Any reviews on the Philips table top one?

Hi All,

I'm in the market for a front loading, fully automatic Washing Maching. Budget is 20-23k.

Went to Total Mall on Old Airport Road and took a look at the base models on offer.

Saw the following machines:

- Samsung 5.5 Kg WF8558QMW8 Front Loading Washing Machine

- Samsung 5.5 Kg WF550B0BKWQ/TL Front Loading Washing Machine

- LG 5.5 Kg F8091MD2 Front Loading Washing Machine

The prices are +/- 500 rupees at the max between the various stores and websites, so it's not that big a deal.

The first model I've listed has a 5 year warranty on the motor, and the other 2 have 10 year motor warranty. The machine has a 2 year warranty for all models.

Looking for any feedback, experiences and reviews that can help me decide on which machine to buy.

Thanks in advance!!

@vineetmanghani; I am on my second LG and swear by it. Have been with them for a decade. The service is outstanding. As for Samsung, they too used to be good till they outsourced service.
