Water is a fundamental molecule (H2O) for life and the main element of all living organisms. Therefor, control and evaluation of water quality is very important. Water can be contaminated by human activity and lose its quality. For example, through cooking, preparation of food, drinking, personal hygiene and other household activities.
Water we accumulate in tanks and depots is usually rain water or tap water. Rain water comes from the roofs and/ or roof gutters that are in unknown conditions. They can be covered with bird excrements along side with other particles like pollen or sands, etc. If the water comes from the municipal water system and runs through our pipes, there can be found numerous pathogenics that accumulate over time and finally sediment in our tanks and depots.
