Make your Water Safe for Drink and Benefit from It – Complete Water Filtration. How safe is the water you drink? If this question hasn’t occurred to you, then there’s very good reason why it should. Because, most of the time, the water that you get through the tap is full of pathogens that can make you sick. Cholera, dysentery, typhoid, leptospirosis, amoebiasis… the list of water borne diseases is a long one.
Pure Water Filtration Methods You have to treat or filter the water to remove the harmful bacteria and other impurities. There are several filtration methods to purify water.
Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent that is toxic to most waterborne organisms. Ozone is made by passing oxygen through ultraviolet light or a “cold” electrical discharge.
Ultraviolet light is good for disinfecting water. However, it is not very effective if the water is not clear, or turbid.
Water Boiling is of course the most well-known way of purifying water. At boiling point, that is 100 degrees Celsius, most microbes that can cause intestinal diseases are eliminated. The disadvantage of the boiling method is that it does not remove chemical and other contaminants. Plus, boiling water can pose a safety risk to those handling it.
Water can be purified by boiling it and then condensing the steam. This however is an energy-intensive method and is rather costly.
Reverse osmosis is the process by which impure water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane, one that is partly porous. The impurities are trapped by the membrane, and the result of the process is clean, potable water. Drinking water purification systems around the world use RO systems, which are often combined with ultraviolet light for maximum water purity. It is probably the best method available today.
