Exclusively designed for Chinese mothers and babies who want drinkable hot water, purified by advanced reverse osmosis technology, direct from the tap. Traditional under-ink water purifiers cannot provide hot water for mixing milk powder, so parents and grandparents have to manually mix hot and cold water to prepare the formula. This is not easy to do for old people, especially in the middle of the night. Other disadvantages of traditional water purifiers are that they take up precious space in small Chinese kitchens and are complicated to install. Key design innovations of the Aqua Touch are that it is mother and baby safe, with tilted touch and no painted parts; it is slim and very easy to install and use.
