  • What is water treatment?

    The definition of water treatment is the process of making water more acceptable for its end use, whether that’s safer to drink or more useful for other purposes. The main water treatment processes include purifying, clarifying, softening, or deodorising.

    Depending on where you live and where your local water is sourced from, local water treatment companies will carry out certain processes to provide you with the best water quality possible.

    What is water softening?

    In areas where locally sourced water is ‘hard, many homes have a water softener to treat the supply of water coming into the home. But, what is water softening? Water softening is the process of removing dissolved calcium and magnesium salts, which are the chemicals that cause hardness in water.

    The problem with hard water is that it forms insoluble scale in pipes and tanks, or it interferes with cleaners such as soap. Water softening treats this problem by removing those hard chemicals to avoid such issues.

  • What is the best water treatment system?

    There are a number of different water treatment systems that water treatment companies can offer to help improve the quality and usability of a water supply. If you’re looking to purify your water, here are four types of popular water treatments you can use…

    1. Boiling

    Boiling water is the safest and cheapest way to purify water and deal with issues such as parasites and germs that may be present in the water. By boiling the water for a short period of time you can improve the quality of the water – just make sure you leave it to cool before drinking.

    2. Filtration

    Filtering is another extremely effective way of purifying water and can remove harmful chemicals and compounds from the water. Common filtration uses both chemical and physical processes to purify water and make it safe for human consumption, whilst also leaving mineral salts in the water – which is a health benefit of using a filter.

    3. Distillation

    Distilling water involves heating the water until it forms a vapour and then collecting that vapour – which is water in its pure form. Distillation will remove contaminants and disease-causing elements found in water, as they typically have a higher boiling point than water and will be left as a sediment in the distillation container.

  • What is the water treatment process?

    There are a number of water treatment processes that are used to improve the quality of water. Many of the treatment processes are used together to achieve the best results for the water. Here’s a rundown of some of the most commonly used water treatment processes:

    • Sedimentation – this is where gravity is used to remove solid particles from within the water

    • Disinfection – disinfecting the water involves using chemicals, such as chlorine, to kill harmful bacteria, viruses, and other substances in the water (and disinfection also typically uses filtration too)

    • Filtration – the water is filtered through sand or a membranous filter to remove impurities

    • Coagulation – by adding certain chemicals to the water, water treatment companies encourage particles to clump together, which makes them easier to remove through sedimentation

    • Boiling and distillation – when you heat water to boiling point you kill harmful microbes and pathogens, and then the evaporation process allows for particles and chemical toxins to be removed from the water
