Since water is a basic need of a human so it is very much essential to have proper intake of it by taking efficient measures to make water more acceptable. All this can be done by adapting the method of water treatment so that you are far from health disease and live a healthy life.

It is always beneficial to adapt safe drinking water act. Water treatment applies to industrial plants, drinking water process, medical treatment, building operations related to the closed heating and cooling systems, chillers that is an open cooling tower systems, steam systems, domestic water supplies, swimming pools and many more. It can be done by using chemicals or by adopting a lot of techniques. In technical terms when water is evaporated, the solids are left behind and the numbers of times the solids are concentrated by evaporation are the cycles of concentration. It is a physical process known as settling and filtration, also it can be done by using chemical processes such as disinfection and coagulation. Biological processes may include aerated lagoons, activated sludge or slow sand filters. All these processes can be used to improve the quality of water for human consumption and many other applications.

The goal of all these water treatment process is to remove existing contaminants in the water, or reduce the concentration of such contaminants so that the water becomes fit for its desired end use. At last, the water is potable, palatable, and ready for consumption and that water is moved into tank for storage through pumps. The water is then flows down into the society.

Hence, water treatment is very important to make available water of desirable quality at the customer end that leads to better health protection by distribution of the treated water after treatment.
