11 best water purifiers in Singapore: a buying guide to cleaner water

Just because you can drink water straight from the tap in Singapore doesn’t mean you should. Yes, tap water is generally safe in Singapore, but a water purifier can further remove all the unwanted chemicals and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like chlorine, and other contaminants that may be present in the water. This also makes your water less hard by filtering limescale and other minerals. Using the best water purifier in Singapore will definitely improve the quality of the water you and your family put into your bodies every day.

Preparing water for your infant is especially sensitive, and gone are the old ways of boiling tap water when you can use a water purifier.

We are fortunate that so many good water purifiers are so easily available. The flipside of that variety is the difficulty in choosing between them. You have to factor in capacity, design, safety features, power needs and more.

Some factors to consider when buying a water purifier in Singapore:

  1. Machine size and tank: fits your household space for installation
  2. Filtration and purification method
  3. Maintenance cost: replacement filters, easy to clean
  4. Water volume dispensing presets available
  5. Electrical consumption
  6. Any other features: hot water, ice, removable tray, water consumption tracking

So, we did it for you. Here are the 11 best water purifiers in Singapore that you can get right now.
