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. Treatment of drinking water involves a series processes that are aimed at the removal of particles that may lead to contamination and cause short and long term risks. The first process in water treatment is called screening, fixed screens are used to remove large particles from the raw mater. 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. Intermediate screens are fitted with water cleaning jets which wash away any debris remaining after getting out of the course screens. 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. Finally water treatment ends by disinfection to kill bacteria, other pathogens and bacteria either by adding of chlorine and other chemicals. 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. Treated water is good for appliances in a farm because water that is softened keeps many appliances efficient which will also help in saving money. Clean water is of good importance to someone’s health because it is free from disease causing organisms that may cause deaths. 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. When water is treated, it is usually soft hence economical because less soap will be used compared to when the water is still hard and untreated.
