Abstract

The filter is a slow sand filter and is well suited for rural community on the other hand it is a eco-friendly filter which will not harm the environment. In slow sand filter, filtration rate is slower than other rapid filters. It effectively remove turbidity and pathogenic organism through various bio-logical process. It consume less area in comparison to other slow sand filters Bamboo is uses as base material for the filter because it has long life span which consist three layer, upper layer is used for sedimentation , sedimentation removes a large percentage of suspended solids and organic matter present in raw supplies . Middle layer is used for purification of water, which remove remaining impurity and to produce safe water because water is filter through the bed of fine granular material such as sands etc. Last layer is used as water storage tank. Slow sand filter does not have back washing so bed layer can be scrapped periodically.
