Q. What types of pumps are used to disinfect or treat water?
A. About two thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by water, but most of it is not potable. The purpose of a water treatment system is to provide quality water for safe consumption (potable) or for safe release to the environment (effluent).
Water treatment to produce potable water from surface water typically consists of physical and chemical separation processes to remove constituents from the water, and to kill or inactivate disease-causing microorganisms and viruses.
