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. Fine screens are usually rotary drum screens whose surface is woven stainless steel with small screen aperture sizes, collected debris are washed at this place. Settling or sedimentation is the next process where finer particles are removed because they may eventually block the filters. 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. Filtration is the next process that helps removing some particles by passing through a series of sand filters, the high rate sand filter is usually easy to clean and reduces the load of particulate materials on the slow sand filter. Because of all this processes, water treatment therefore has many advantages that make it useful to people and every organism in a farm. Water that is treated is very important for a person’s health because many cases of diseases are associated with drinking of untreated 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. Water that is treated offers protection from harmful organisms such as microorganisms that may lead to illnesses like severe vomiting and diarrhea because it ensures that all the organisms are killed making water safe for consumption. 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. Water treatment helps in the removal of unpleasant tastes and odors that are present, this makes water good compared to when it was still raw. Water that is soft due to treatment allows detergents to rinse completely because fabrics are softer without hard water minerals trapped in them, it also allows a person to save on the amount of soap he or she uses.
