The quality of drinking water has become a topic of concern for many people, and water purifiers can effectively improve water quality and bring a better drinking water experience. YoubePure focuses on the research and development of drinking water products and has launched a number of series of water purification products. Among them, Youbei Pure WP-TR51 household water purifier is a household water purifier without installation, using double filter element design, equipped with a new generation of DuPont long-term RO membrane, supporting multi-gear instant heating, etc., what is the actual experience?
Youbei pure WP-TR51 adopts a square body design, the main body is a gray body + transparent water tank combination, the appearance is simple and low-key, easy to integrate into the home environment. The shell is made of plastic, which is not easy to leave fingerprints and is easy to clean. Through the transparent raw water tank at the rear of the fuselage, the water level change can be seen.
The size of the fuselage is 462*172*395mm, the space occupation is not much, it can be used horizontally and vertically, and it can be placed in the kitchen or living room and other scenes.
The operation area is located on the top of the fuselage, equipped with 1 Lingxi knob + 2 touch buttons, and there is also an LED screen on the top to display various information.
In terms of water purification
UCP WP-TR51 adopts CF301 polypropylene activated carbon composite filter element + R102 reverse osmosis membrane filter element double filter element combination. Among them, CF301 filter element is mainly used to intercept sediment in water, filter residual chlorine, organic matter, etc. The R102 reverse osmosis membrane filter adopts 0.1nm DuPont long-term RO membrane, which can effectively intercept heavy metal ions and inorganic salts. Generally, the water purifier with RO membrane filter element can meet the needs of direct drinking.
Under the combination of dual filter elements, UCP WP-TR51 can filter out the water quality rich in strontium and weak alkali, the mineral content will not be too high, and the appropriate amount of strontium minerals is more suitable for babies, bringing a better drinking experience. The Eupure TR5 series is also available in a certified version for mother and baby.
According to reports, the wading parts of the water purifier have passed FDA food-grade testing, and the safety is more guaranteed.
The WP-TR51 does not require complicated installation steps and can be used after installing water and powering on. The advantage of no installation is that it is easy to use, and it can be moved to the kitchen or living room at any time, and the disadvantage is that it is necessary to manually add water.
The way to add water to the original water tank is simple, open the lid of the original water tank, lift the water tank directly through the internal hidden handle, add tap water, and put it back in place to complete the water addition.
The capacity of the raw water tank is 4.5L, which is not small in the same type of product, but for families with a lot of water consumption, the number of water refills may be more frequent.
The water purifier emits a low noise when making water, which can be detected in a relatively quiet environment. Noise is acceptable and only occurs during water production or withdrawal, not for long.
The product water purification tank is 2L, built-in third-generation UV safety sterilization lamp, and will periodically sterilize the water purification tank through the ultraviolet sterilization process of 275nm. If you want to flush the water tank, press and hold the water intake button to enter drainage mode.
In terms of water quality, the water purifier supports TDS (total dissolved solids) water quality display, the lower the TDS value, the purer the water quality. According to the TDS value of water purification displayed on the screen, the TDS of raw water before purification is 77, and after purification, the TDS of purified water is 3, and the purification effect is obvious.
Press the Lingxi knob on the top to take or stop the water withdrawal, and the button has physical rebound feedback. The default is to take water at room temperature, the water flow is stable, there is no interruption phenomenon during the experience, and the water cup of about 200ml can be filled in about 15s, without waiting for a long time.
The Lingxi knob is equipped with two other touch buttons to adjust the water temperature, water output, etc.
Turning the Lingxi knob has ticking physical feedback, and the mechanical texture is good. The touch button is responsive, wet hands or water stains can also operate normally, the button has no physical feedback, but there is a confirmation tone. The control area at the top is easy to use without bending over.
The rated power of the water purifier reaches 2200W, supports 8 levels of instant heating, and the temperature adjustment range is from normal temperature to 98°C. Touch the hot water unlock button to turn on the hot water mode, turn the Lingxi knob to quickly adjust the water temperature, and the screen will display the current water temperature.
The light near the water outlet will indicate the outlet temperature by changing color, which is blue at room temperature and red when hot water.
Although the water purifier does not support fine temperature adjustment, the 8-level temperature has covered most of the daily needs. For example, if you need hot water to soak milk powder for your baby, the water purifier can directly discharge 45°C hot water with a suitable temperature.
It is understood that the water purifier adopts water vapor separation technology and rare earth thick film rapid heating system, with heating algorithms, so that the temperature control is more accurate. When 98°C hot water is selected, the water is really heated to boiling and passed through the water vapor separation system to make the water flow out more stably, reducing splashing.
In actual experience, it is set to 98°C hot water intake mode, and the water flow is not stable enough. Due to the high distance between the water outlet and the base, sputtering problems may occur, so you need to pay attention when taking hot water.
The water purifier supports 14 levels of quantitative water withdrawal, the quantitative range is from the smallest 50ml to 999ml, according to the water demand can be adjusted through the knob, after reaching the set water withdrawal, the water will automatically stop discharge, do not worry about overflow.
The LED screen on the top of the water purifier can display the water purification TDS, water temperature, water output, filter element life, etc., and key information can be seen and displayed intuitively. The LED screen supports energy-saving mode, it will automatically dim after a long time, and the brightness can be restored by touching any button.
When the raw water tank is at a low water level, the LED screen will prompt the water change, and we can usually observe the water level through the transparent water tank.
The ratio of clean wastewater in the water purifier is 3:1, the wastewater will remain in the original water tank, and it needs to be dumped and then added water, and about 1/3 of the wastewater will remain in a tank of raw water.
The water collection box at the bottom of the water purifier is designed for easy removal, which is convenient for pouring water and cleaning.
In terms of maintenance, the WP-TR51 adopts a quick-spin filter element design, which can theoretically replace the filter element without the help of tools. Due to the good air tightness of the filter element, it is actually more difficult to unscrew the filter element with bare hands to replace, and if it is difficult to disassemble, you can use tools such as wrenches.
According to official data, the rated total amount of water purification of the water purifier is 2500L. CF301 element 1 is recommended for replacement intervals of 6-9 months and R102 element 2 is recommended for replacement intervals of 24-36 months. The life of each filter element is displayed on the screen and can be replaced when prompted. In terms of the cost of consumables, according to the price of Jingdong's filter element, the price of CF301 filter element is 499 yuan, and the price of R102 is 799 yuan, which is higher than that of similar mainstream products.
The installation-free design of the WP-TR51 is easy to use, can be moved to different scenes at will, and the simple operation mode allows the elderly to quickly get started. The water purifier has a good water purification effect, can filter out the water quality rich in strontium and weak alkali, and has an intuitive TDS water quality display. Although the product does not support intelligent interconnection, it can meet the needs of most daily scenarios with practical functions such as multi-level temperature instant heating and quantitative water withdrawal, and the drinking water experience is greatly improved.
This water purifier can provide a good comprehensive experience, which is more suitable for users who pursue convenience and have special requirements for water quality. However, given the limited capacity of the water tank, this product is not suitable for families with a large number of people or large drinking water needs. The current price of Youbei pure WP-TR51 is 4999 yuan, combined with the price of the filter element, the overall cost of use will be relatively higher.
