Methods For Water Sterilization

Methods For Water Sterilization

Water plays a very important role in everyone’s life whether they are human, animals or plants. You people know very well that water with chemicals like pesticides is very harmful for human, soil, and plants.

Today people are suffering from the major disease that results in death due to unhygienic water.
Even crops are damaged because of this contaminated water.

So how can we prevent crops from damage and humans from disease?

You can choose greenhouse water sterilization methods. To know about other sterilization methods carry on reading this article.
Oxidizing agents: There are so many oxidants like bleach, chlorine, bromine, ozone that reacts against bacteria, algae, peat, and plant debris.
Water becomes purified with these oxidizing agents and you can easily use the water.

Ultraviolet radiation: It is very much effective way to kill microbes and purify the water because it doesn’t use any harmful chemical like chlorine. It requires a very little amount of energy and low maintenance.

Copper ionization: It is a disinfecting process that disperses positively charged copper ions into the water system and these ions are very much toxic to the harmful bacteria, pathogens or plants. So when you use this method you have to treat water below a level which causes phototoxicity.

Heat treatment: It’s another method to treat against disinfecting water, it is energy intensive.
Also it is very much costly for purifying a large amount of water. Temperature 203F is sufficient to kill most pathogens and bacteria present in the water.

Slow sand filtration: It’s not a high technology for disinfecting water and this approach is mostly used in the nursery to kill Phytophthora.

The above mentioned methods are effective for sterilizing irrigation water for greenhouse crops too. You can also use these techniques for rainwater and wastewater and recycle them. After that this water becomes not only safe for farming but also for household’s works.
