We can purify your water through a water treatment process.
What is water treatment?
Water treatment is the process that makes untreated water more acceptable for end use by removing existing water contaminants to produce drinking water that is pure enough for water consumption.
What does water treatment remove from my water?
Substances that are removed during drinking water treatment include:
- suspended solids
- minerals such as iron
- And other chemical pollutants such as fertilizers
How does the water treatment process work?
Coagulation removes dirt and other particles suspended in water. Alum and other chemicals are added to the water to form tiny sticky particles called “floc” which attract the dirt particles.
During Sedimentation, the combined weight of the dirt and the alum are heavy enough to sink to the bottom and clear water moves to filtration.
During filtration, the water travels through filters, some made of layers of sand, gravel, and charcoal that help remove even smaller particles.
A small amount of chlorine is then added to kill any other microorganisms or bacteria that may still be in the water.
The water is then stored in your water storage tank, for the disinfection to take place.
The water then flows through pipes to your residence or commercial property.
