Drinking water treatment
Water originating from natural sources such as rivers, lakes, aquifers and even man-made reservoirs contain dirt, pathogens, and some minerals that cause scale. Furthermore, in the current situation of increasing environmental pollution in the globe, drinking water sources are also subject to contamination and require appropriate treatment to remove disease-causing agents. These impurities can create issues ranging from public health emergencies to large expenses combating water distribution-related issues.
The process of treating raw water into potable water goes through many stages such as:
- pH control
- Softening and remineralisation
- Correction of alkalinity and chemical balance
- Low cost source of hydroxide ions
- Removal of impurities in potable water systems
