The MANZI Water Purification Process

Water is essential to all life on earth, not just human life. Therefore, it is important for us to have access to safe, clean drinking water. Whereas South Africa boasts safe water treatment, not all water sources in the country are safe or clean, due to contamination that can easily occur naturally or through human activities. Because of this, there is a growing need for effective water purification processes.

Water purification is the removal of unneeded chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids and gasses from the water. In general, this technology aims to provide appropriate quality water for specific use.

At MANZI Water, our priority is to provide safe, clean, purified water for drinking. We do this by utilising an advanced, rigorous, six-stage water purification process designed to remove contaminants and deliver the highest quality product possible. The processes below are used by MANZI Water in our water purification process.

Sand Filtration

The initial step of our water purification process involves sand filtration. This process involves passing water through a single tank of different sands of varying grain sizes. The water flows from the largest to increasingly finer sands. Sand traps a vast amount of the particles and sediment thus removing them out of the water supply. This process ensures that the large impurities which make the water unclear and also clog the other filters in the system can be removed.

Element Filtration

The second stage of MANZI Water’s purification process is element removal. Here, water flows through the filter that captures the finer, suspended particles that could have made it through the sand filtration. The water first flows through a 5 micron filtering element, which removes undissolved solids as small as 5 microns (0.005mm). Thereafter, it flows through a 1 micron filtering element able to remove particles as small as 1 micron (0.001mm). In this process, the fine contaminants such as microscopic parasites, and some bacteria that most likely skipped the first phase of the sand filtration can be wiped out.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis is able to remove dissolved ionized solids including heavy metals, salt, and other dangerous impurities. Water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane, which are filters only allowing water molecules to pass through, and the contaminants are left behind. This stage of the water purification process takes out between 95% to 99% of all dissolved solids from the water.

Carbon Filtration

The fourth stage of MANZI Water’s purification process involves carbon filtration. During this stage, water is passed through a tank filled with activated charcoal. The activated carbon effectively absorbs chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, and various other organic compounds from the water. This process not only improves the taste and odour of the water but also makes it significantly cleaner and safer for consumption.

UV Protection

In this step of the water purification process, water is exposed to UV light, which dismantles all harmful microbes, like bacteria, viruses and hormonal substances that survived during previous purification stages. This guarantees that the final water is safe and clean of micro-organisms able to cause disease.

Ozone Treatment

This is the final stage of MANZI Water’s purification process. At this stage, ozone (O3), a highly potent oxidizing agent, is introduced into the water. Ozone is effective in breaking down and removing any remaining organic substances, ensuring that any leftover taste, scent, or contaminants are completely eradicated. Furthermore, it is excellent at disinfecting the water, as it destroys bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, enhancing water safety. Following its reaction, the ozone decomposes back into oxygen. This transformation not only prevents ozone-related by-products but also increases the dissolved oxygen content in the water, which is beneficial for its quality. The outcome of ozone treatment is water that is not only free from hazardous elements but also enriched with oxygen, making it exceptionally pure and safe for human consumption.

Bottom Line

As you have seen, MANZI Water’s purification process is rigorous and this ensures that the final product is 100% purified water. So, visit our website or any of the various outlets across South Africa to make your order of safe, clean, purified drinking water from MANZI Water.
