More fun facts about water – How does water get to our home?

It’s a well known fact that water comes from the sky in the form of rain which then flows to rivers and streams or it becomes ground water. Ground water is less likely to get polluted and this is why it is mostly used domestically.

The most common storage for ground water is in reservoirs as this ensures a constant supply of water and water in reservoirs also gets involved in a natural cleaning process. The water gets filtered so that all large debris and dirt is removed. The water has to be as clear as possible when it moves to the next stage of the filtering process.

Next, they remove harmful particles from the water. This process is called flocculation which is where a solution is added to the water so they are easier to remove. Those particles are then removed through 2 individual filters to ensure ensure the highest quality of drinking water is supplied.

Then the water is passed through another filter containing finer sand which traps more particles than may not have been picked up previously.

The final step is to add a very small amount of chlorine this is to make sure that all nasty bacteria is killed so that the water is safe to drink.  At each stage the water is tested so that it can be dealt with efficiently if anything harmful is found.
