Water treatment is the process for enhancing the quality of water so that it meets the water quality criteria for its fitness for the intended use after having been chemically or biological polluted. Treated water has great importance in industrial applications as well as safe drinking.
Water treatment protects humans and ecosystem
Water contains elements toxic to humans and the ecosystem. Water treatment facilities help to purify the water and eliminate situations like what is currently seen in developing countries. Unclean water poses significant health risks, accounting for 1.7 million deaths annually, of which over 90 percent are in developing countries. Several water-related diseases, including cholera and schistosomiasis, remain widespread across many developing countries, where only a very small fraction (in some cases less than 5 percent) of domestic and urban wastewater is treated prior to its release into the environment3.
Water treatment also protects the ecosystem. Fish and aquatic life require fresh water. When their water environment is laden with wastewater, they cannot survive. If chemicals, such as nitrogen and phosphates, enter streams, rivers or large bodies of water in excessive amounts, it causes excessive plant growth which releases toxins into the water. This leads to oxygen depletion and dead zones; areas where fish and other aquatic life can no longer exist.
Remove unwanted contaminants
Lead, pesticides, bacteria, viruses and many more physical, chemical, biological and radiological compounds and substances, find their way into the water supply. It is virtually impossible to remove all traces of contaminants from your water, so the local water authorities regulate how much of a specific substance is acceptable for the water to contain.
While water that lives up to these standards is usually considered safe to drink, you may have your own preference for how high a level of contaminants you feel comfortable having your drinking water contain. Private water purification lets you set your own limits.
Improve the taste and odor of your water
Drinking clean and fresh water can have a huge impact on your life and health. However, there is the problem of tap water having a distinct taste and this is because of the use of chlorine as a disinfectant. The foul odor that is given off by tap water sometimes comes from hydrogen sulfide.
Most water treatment systems are designed to not only rid your water of contaminants, but also help to improve the appearance, taste, and smell of your water and therefore, make it satisfying.
