Reverse osmosis-

The reverse osmosis system is the most effective filtration of any water
purifier. It removes up to 99% of contaminants like heavy metals.

RO is a process where pressure is used to force water through a
semi-permeable membrane that removes impurities-leaving your water free of
sediments and toxins. The filtered water is directed to a storage tank from
where it supplies your faucets, giving you water ready to drink.

To keep your reverse osmosis purifier well maintained, you need to remember
that the membranes and filters need to be replaced every six months to two
years. The frequency with which you replace the membrane and filter depends
on the type of filter and how much water you use.

Cation exchange/water softener

The cation exchanger or water softener systems remove the calcium and
magnesium ions found in hard water by exchanging them with sodium or
potassium ions. They are designed as whole-home systems, so all the water
in your home will receive the benefits of employing this system.

Carbon filter.

Carbon systems are popular because they are relatively cheap and easy to
install. Water flows through carbon bricks installed in line with the
faucet, which produces a chemical reaction that removes chemicals,
parasites, or heavy metals present in the water.
