Unilever PureIt Marvella Water Purifier Review

We got a Unilever PureIt Excella Water Purifier back in April 2014. We’ve stopped having water delivered since. It’s definitely one of the best things we’ve ever gotten for the house. We used to spend about P400 to P500 a month on water delivery. The Excella’s SRP is about P5,000. We’ve been using it for almost 3 years. We’ve saved over P10,000 in water delivery fees. This unit doesn’t use electricity and we only use tap water to fill it up.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierSometime ago a newer and more advanced model came out — the Unilever PureIt Marvella (P12,995). It’s wall-mounted so it takes up a lot less space compared to the Excella. It uses UV light technology to eliminate viruses and bacteria.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierInstallation is hassle-free because Unilever provides free installation service for the Unilever PureIt Marvella. It was good to go about an hour after we took it out of the box. We had it placed in the kitchen so I can use it for cooking as well.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierI love how sleek and modern look of the Unilever PureIt Marvella. It can store up to 4 liters of water so you have a buffer in case there is a power failure. Since it’s directly connected to your water line, there’s no need to manually fill it.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierThe dispensing spout is similar to the Excella’s. I can attest to its durability as the Excella’s spout is still in perfect condition after 3 years of daily use.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierAfter installation, we cycled the water and discarded about 4 pitchers after which we were good to go. There was absolutely no plastic or chlorine scent. We just had really odorless and clean water to drink right off the bat. I remember it took over a month of use for the scent to fade in the Excella’s case.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierWater goes through a 3 stages of filtration before finally being treated with UV rays for thorough elimination of bacteria, virus, and parasites. You’re assured of clean and safe water always.

Unilever Pureit Marvella Water PurifierThe Unilever PureIt Marvella requires maintenance every 3,000 liters. There’s an Advanced Alert System that reminds you to replace the consumables 2 weeks before it expires. All you have to do is contact Unilever for service and pay P2,000. Then you’re okay for another 3,000 liters. You can’t possibly drink unclean water because the system automatically shuts off when the consumables need to be replaced.

What I like about the Unilever PureIt Marvella Water Purifier:

  • I love how it looks! Seriously, I feel it gives my kitchen a high-tech and modern vibe lol.
  • It’s super convenient. No more manual filling of the water tank.
  • Although this model needs electricity, the energy consumption of the entire device is 35 watts. That’s about the same as an electric fan so it’s not an energy hog.
  • It consumes very little space so it’s great even for tiny homes or condos.
  • It’s more economical and convenient compared to having water delivered. No more heavy lifting. No more letting strangers into your home. Oh and I don’t have to store those big bulky water containers. We used to have 3 of those at any given time and they take up a lot of space.

Downside? The initial cash out is bigger at P12,995 but there are installment plans you can avail of. In the long run, it’s still more economical because of the what you save from here on out.

The Unilever PureIt Marvella costs around P9,995 and is currently being sold at leading appliance stores like Abenson, Automatic Center, etc. It can also be bought online from PureIt on Lazada.

      I had the Marvella for about 8 months. It was nice while it last. But when it was time to replace the filter, I had to spend hours trying to reach their customer service. Several attempts of 30 minutes or more on hold, and still unable to reach them. VERY FRUSTRATING! and to think that they charge thousands for filter replacement.

    Amazing! yes, you’re right ,this is perfect for small homes and condos. will definitely consider buying this once we have renovated our tiny kitchen 🙂

      Installation is fast and free. 🙂

    I agree the unit is quite expensive and the P2k regular maintence may be difficult for most. The product looks efficient and safer drinking water. What about if the unit breaksdown, do they also have service centers or do they come to your place?

    • Reply animetric January 11, 2017 at 10:51 pm

      P2k a year is still cheaper compared to having water delivered for a year…

    Oh, wow. I spend so much money on water too. I think it’s about time to shift to a water purifier.

    I need to save up! I want something like this in my household. More tipid that water delivery charge.

    This is a great product for the home and definitely saves mums like us a lot of time and money. Price is a bit steep but It think it’s a good investment.

    This is interesting! It’s so hassle and costly to always have to order water by the gallons. Will look into this.

    Kudos to Unilever for coming up with Pure It so we can all save up on drinking and potable water. This is something I would really consider getting especially that we’ve also tried using Excella at home.

    My husband and I are thinking of getting like this last year. I have to check it out and see if this could work for us. Thanks for doing this review 🙂

    It’s always better to be safe than sorry. It’s cheaper to have this machine than buying gallons of purified water.

  • Reply Janice January 15, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    This is really something we must consider . We also spend at least P400 a month on water delivery too. We’ve even had to change suppliers a few times already because there were times we didn’t like how the water tasted. It was such a hassle.

  • Reply Pinknomenal January 15, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    When I first saw the picture, I thought it will be a review of an air freshener! Haha But this water purifier look so small and chic, perfect for those who have tiny spaces.

  • Reply Liz A January 16, 2017 at 12:27 am

    Does this need to have its own water pipe to connect to? This looks interesting.

  • Reply Lhourdes Mercadero January 16, 2017 at 1:26 am

    In our home and moms home I think we spend like a 500- 600 a month for the water delivery . I think this is a good choice to have a safe drinking water.

  • Reply Neri Ann February 9, 2017 at 7:15 pm

    I think this is a really good investment if you really want to save water. I also like the fact that it doesn’t take too much space.

    The after sales sucks bigtime! I’ve been ordering the filter replacement and silicone gaskets through their hotline for a month now and all they say is sorry I will get back you. And for the third time that I tried to call them up the line is always busy. The agent makes promises to keep me updated and all. Until now I have’nt received any confirmation from them.

    My family got our Marvella UV a year ago but when the time came that I had to call Unilever Pureit for a replacement of the CSF, I felt so frustrated to be calling the 2 landline numbers as I had to spend hours calling and waiting on the phone for my call to be answered by the customer service representative…even tried texting the mobile number devoted to receiving sms from clients but no reply.
    Message to Unilever: Please do not let your clients regret buying your product simply because of poor after sales service. Unilever is such a big company and you must have the resources to improve your service to clients. Either you increase the number of landlines that you have or increase the number of customer service representatives to handle clients’ concerns on the phone to avoid long waiting time (hours at that) of clients. Also, Unilever can probably upgrade its telephone system( like the ones used by banks) such that a client on the phone will have an idea as to how much is the waiting time before his or her call will be answered, meaning call in queue. I hope we can experience better service in the months/years to come…a high standard of service is a MUST!!!

    Before buying, ask them to show you the storage tank. Storage tank is not sealed properly. Tiny ants (the black sugar hungry type that goes to your sugar bottle) can easily get inside the tank and make it as their home. Speaking from experience here. Great water purifying technology but VERY STUPID storage tank design! I had to customize my own properly sealed storage tank that can fit inside their stupid design.

    Worst call center! We contacted both numbers written on the machine as early as April 12, 2019. An agent called our house to confirm delivery of filter replacement on April 14 within 5 days. Awa ng Diyos, May 5 na WALA pa ang replacement. And we are now buying water again. It seems mahusay lang sila kapag bibili ng unit. Sa replacement of filter, wala na ang good service nila.

    The unit is good but the after-sales is very bad. I experienced this several times when I sent a text message requesting water filter replacement. The responses were so very slow and they keep several promises but no service crew came. There was a point that I reported from DTI after the matter and appointed both parties to come and discussed the issue but they did not come. Now, I experience it again.

    Marvella is great but requires electricity, doesnt run during brownouts. Is it true that Excella has been discontinued (the unit itself, not the replacement filter)? Thanks
