The Mi Water Purifier RMB1299 (US$209) fits into Xiaomi’s vision of bringing innovation to everyone.
Mi Water Purifier uses reverse osmosis technology, which applies pressure through a RO membrane to separate purified water from tap water. This technology is generally used for bottled pure water filtration, desalination and medical water. Mi Water Purifier employs a four- step RO filtration – tap water goes through a quality PP cotton filter, an activated coconut carbon filter, Dow/GE reverse osmosis membranes, and another activated coconut carbon filter (for better-tasting water), before finally resulting in clean purified water.

With a 400-gallon high flow RO filter and an optimized water purification path that improves filtration efficiency, one of the biggest advantages of Mi Water Purifier is its higher rate of water flow. This means that users can get purified water whenever they need it, avoiding the need to purify water in advance for storage, and cutting the risk of impurities affecting the stored water. Mi Water Purifier can purify up to 76 barrels of water per day.

Mi Water Purifier is also a smart device. It can be monitored via the Mi Home app, allowing users to check real-time filter effectiveness, and even reminding users to change filters, which can be purchased directly within the app.
