While the prime function of water treatment is to produce a safe product, several stages are involved: the removal of suspended matter and rendering of the water clean, colourless and free from disagreeable taste and odour; the disinfection of the water so that the numbers of bacteria are reduced to an appropriate level; the removal of chemicals harmful to health and the reduction to low levels of chemicals that might otherwise interfere with normal domestic and industrial requirements; the reduction of the corrosive properties of the water and protection of the pipe supply system; the minimisation of the amount of material passing into the supply system which might encourage biological growth.
