Water treatment is the process of making water ready for use either by killing the small organisms in it or removing the dirty like the mud, algae and small sediments. The methods involved to clean the water may either be by the use of artificial or use of modern methods.
This is the long-lasting method of cleaning water as it has been there since our fathers, the water is heat to high temperatures where the germs will not be sustained hence they are killed making the water safe for even drinking and other house use like cooking. It also softens the water for easy usage as it removes some of the chemicals as they evaporate into the air.
Use Of Chemicals
Some chemicals can be added to water to either to clean the water by settling the sediments or by killing the organisms in the water. Chlorine is one of the most used chemicals in this sector though it also has some side effects if not properly used. This method can also be used to soften the water which is hard for easier usage like washing.
Water Treatment Systems
This is a system that is designed for homes to clean water before it is finally used for cooking drinking and washing. The water enters a big basin and then the water is passed through pipes that are coated with some metals which will react with the minerals in the water to form some salt that is useful and harmless to the humans. The water is then piped to a heater where it is heated to high temperatures to get rid of the living micro- organisms hence making it safe for home use purposes and many other uses.
This is also another method that has lasted for centuries; it is only used to clean sediments from the water by the use of filters. The water passes through filters for it to get rid of even the smallest particles in this water. This process works perfectly when combined with other methods like boiling, use of chemicals as it is not able to remove the other organisms in the water.
Here the temperatures of the water are lowered to the extent that it cannot sustain any organism in it, it works perfectly when combined with filtration as this removes the sediments. It is the perfect because it keeps some of the beneficial minerals in water that are useful to the body
