We have been purifying water for our drinking needs since a long time and the earliest of methods which evolved was boiling of water. But the concern here is why we are employing different methods for purifying our drinking water even when tap water supplied for drinking is already treated. visit this link to have more info : http://www.waterpurificationplus.com/

What are water purification systems and their methods

  1. 1. What are Water Purification Systems and their methods? www.waterpurificationplus.com
  2. 2. We have been purifying water for our drinking needs since a long time and the earliest of methods which evolved was boiling of water. But the concern here is why we are employing different methods for purifying our drinking water even when tap water supplied for drinking is already treated. * Researchers have shown that even after regularization of standards for the use of chemicals in drinking water treatment, there are chemicals which are unhealthy for humans.
  3. 3. Water Purification  The term Water Purification means the process of removing undesirable entities from the contaminated water to make it fit for drinking or any other specific purpose.
  4. 4. Various types of systems  Distillation  Filtration  water softening  reverse osmosis  ultraviolet radiation  carbon treatment  Deionization  chemical disinfection
  5. 5. Selecting the right purification system  Selecting the is a crucial task because it might cost right purification system your health and your pocket. Some might feel that you need to take advice of professionals for employing the right water purification system for home purpose. But you don’t. You need to start with the facts of water purification systems and methods. Let’s start with the oldest one first.
  6. 6. Distillation  Used from a long time, this method requires if boiling of water. Water vapor is taken through a tube and cooled in another tank. But this is not one the economical way to take, nor does it remove the chemicals involved.
  7. 7. Water Softening  Through this method hard water is converted into soft water by ion exchange. For every Calcium or Magnesium ion two sodium ions are exchanged into the water. This method is employed mostly for pre processing of water treatment.
  8. 8. Reverse Osmosis  This method has become quite popular these days. Reverse osmosis is done using activated carbon filters which purify even the smallest molecules which removes almost all the unhealthy stuff. But this also removes the mineral involved and cause to mineral deficiency.
  9. 9. Ultraviolet Radiation  It is one the most effective method to kill bacteria, viruses and other micro organisms in the water. But it does nothing for non living contaminations.
  10. 10. Chemical Disinfection  In this method chemical like chlorine is used for purification of water. But long term use of this chemical is proven to have health problems with humans.
  11. 11.  By having information about all these methods of water purification, one can easily employ any of these methods which suits according the choice of the user.
  12. 12. Other Factors  Other factors like cost, quality, reliability of the system plays role in selection of the suitable system.
