EFFECTIVENESS OF SOLAR WATER DISINFECTION OF GROUND AND TAP WATER

See More


ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of solar disinfection on microbial properties of ground and faucet water from Brgy. San Juan, Noveleta, Cavite

DESIGN: Experimental Study

METHODS: Ground and tap water samples were collected from Brgy. San Juan, Noveleta, Cavite. The deep-well and faucet were opened for five minutes before collecting water samples. The PET bottles were ¾ filled with water. The bottles were shaken for about 20 seconds. After shaking, the bottles where filled up with water samples and were immediately subjected to turbidity and microbiological test.

RESULTS:
• No significant reduction was observed in terms of HPC among the SODIS treated water samples.
• Improvised tin container showed significant reduction in total coliform count of tap water
• Improvised tin container is showed significant reduction in E. coli count of tap water
CONCLUSION:
• Improvised tin container and iron roof sheet were not effective in reducing the number of the HPC among the SODIS treated water samples.
• Improvised tin container is more effective conductor of heat to effect significant reduction in total coliform count of tap water.
• Improvised tin container is more effective conductor of heat to effect significant reduction in E. coli count of tap water.
