Sedimentation – For sedimentation, floc is to be settled at the bottom of water supply for its weight and the process of setting is called sedimentation.
Filtration – After the floc is to be settled down at the bottom layer of water supply, the clear water from the top will run through the filters made of sand, gravel and charcoal. This process is the best way to remove dissolved particles such as dust, parasites, viruses and chemicals.

Point of entry systems are installed with water meter. Some of the best methods used in the house hold water system are furnished below.
Filtration Systems – To do filtration system, a water filter is required to remove the impurities from water with the help of physical barrier, chemical and even biological process.
Water Softeners – Water Softener is an effective device which reduces the hardness and increases the softness of the water quickly. The water softener is worked with sodium and potassium ions to keep calcium and magnesium ions with perfect measurement.
Distillation – Distillation is one of the best process for house hold water treatment. In the process, water is boiled first and then the steam is collected and condensed in a different container keeping away the solid contaminants behind.
Disinfection – Disinfection is processed chemically or physically for both of the purposes. The process kills the microorganisms using chlorine, chlorine dioxide and ozone. Even the process is included ultraviolet light, heat and radiation.
