Water Filtration Process

Waste water and water from most natural resources must be cleaned before becoming available for general everyday use. Water treatment plants take potential drinking water through aeration, coagulation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection process before it can be available for human consumption.

  1. Filtration Process

    • The steps that make up the water filtration process are pre-filtration, sediment filtration, carbon block filtration and ultraviolet treatment.


    • The pre-filtration step removes all rock, mud, feces and other large debris from incoming water.

    Sediment Filtration

    • In this step the water passes through a sediment filter. The sediment filter has smaller pores for the removal of smaller debris like sand, dirt and bugs.

    Carbon Block Filtration

    • Block of Activated Carbon from Carbon Filter
      This step incorporates and activated carbon filter to induce carbon bonding. The carbon bonding works to cleanse the water of pesticides, herbicides, cleaners and other chemical impurities.

    Ultraviolet Treatment

    • This final step uses high levels of ultraviolet light to kill harmful microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi and algae.
