Benefits of Water Treatment Water treatment is the process of removing contaminants and undesirable components in water making it more acceptable to be used for different purposes, for example, drinking, irrigation, and river flow maintenance. Water treatment for drinking water involves removal of any contaminants to produce pure water that may be used for human consumption without any risks or health effects. First of all water is supposed to undergo the process of screening to remove the suspended particles which may include debris and vegetation, screens of different sizes are usually used. The course screens are usually the first screens the screening process; they are usually spaced at a space of 25 to 100 intervals, water then flows to intermediate and fine screens. Raw water then goes to the intermediate screens that are often traveling bands, the screen surface is usually vertical through which the water stream flows. The next step is sedimentation where the smaller particulate matter is removed. The next process is flocculation where smaller particles are collected into round masses and the surface of the chemical environment are usually added with chemicals, after this process the small particles behave as single larger particles which settle and are removed as sludge. The final process is chlorination to kill disease causing organisms and some bacteria. Therefore water treatment has a lot of benefits to people and a farm at large. It helps in prevention of any occurrence of diseases because many disease outbreaks are associated with contaminated water. Water that is treated can be used for some appliances that requires softened water for example in boiler feed water hardness is supposed to be removed to prevent formation of scale. There are some microorganisms that are very dangerous to someone’s health and may cause intoxications, therefore treating water will prevent any of the organisms from surviving in water. Also, treated water facilitates the removal of some metals that are present In water because they may react with other metals causing deposits which may make the water unsuitable for drinking. The bad odors and taste of water is removed when water is treated that’s why some food beverages taste better when prepared using treated water. Water treatment leads to a cleaner and brighter laundry because due to softening of water during the process, hardness which may make laundry look dirty is removed.
