Not really a recommendation but sharing my experience. In our borewell water, we would get quite a bit of sediments and water was visibly muddy. What we did was added couple of kg alum to the borewell and let it settle down below for a day. That fixed the sediments problem for good. Now we do have around 250 ppm tds which is reduced through an RO but water has always been clear.

@rdst_1; In my part of the world water from a deep tubewell is kosher except for the high content of dissolved salts. In IITK they relaxed the salt content about 3-4x from the norms.

Most of the year, we have no problem with drinking water straight from the well (so to speak). But during the rainy season, the water table rises substantially. The soil is also very sandy and gravely which increases the sediment predicament. I am wishing to do away with any germicidal technology as they seem to have some side effect or the other. I am hoping that despite the rise, the water from the well will remain free from bacteria and other germs.
We also have access to a clear water mountain spring(roughly a km away) that the village utilizes for drinking but we have become just a bit lazy since we dug the borewell .

@rdst_1; Stuff like sand in borewell water is an annoyance, no more. In Kanpur fine sand (Golden Ganga sand0 is present almost in all the water, so we just ignore it.

I am eyeing the LG RO water purifier. The WW170.

http://www.lg.com/in/water-purifiers/lg-WW170EP

How is the upkeep on this model? I have no experience with any kind of water purifier. What kind of maintenance am I looking at?
