¿Se usa esta palabra para el agua? Como esto: "Tengo una jarra de agua especial. Se depura el agua del grifo." ???

I have always used purifcar. Depurar is a new word for me.
You can definitely say el agua está purificado y se lo puede tomar sin riesco.

Depurar y purificar is the same.

Hmm... Por aquí, nadie comprendería "depurar el agua". Preferiríamos que se purifique.

It's time for cleanse my home.

In that example can be used that word as a complement.

I'm thankful for your support.

I don't think "depurar" is a widely used word for purify.....

But if someone has heard it before, please raise your hand.
