Boil the water

Chlorine tablets

Chlorine is a good agent to purify water. It is a less expensive option as you get the chorine tablets easily in the market. Just put the tablets in the water containers. After four to five hours, the water becomes clean and clear, safe to use. A 20 mg tablet is sufficient to treat five liters of water. 


Bleach can kill some organisms that may be present in the water. Add eight drops of regular unscented liquid household bleach in four liters of water. Stir it well and let it stand for 30 minutes before using it. 

Alum or fitkari for sedimentation

Sometimes the stored water looks cloudy and unclear. Sedimentation is a simple process used to remove turbidity in water by making the suspended particles settles down. To purify the contaminated water at home, a small piece of alum can be added and left untouched for a couple of hours. After some time, the impurities will get collected at the bottom of the utensil.
