We are on the home stretch!!! This is the softening stage! If we are initially to hard we can be treated with sodium carbonate and calcium hydroxide or phosphate to reduce our hardness by precipitating the calcium and magnesium ions.
Sodium Carbonate Calcium Hydroxide
3 stages remain!!!! Daniel is getting restless but I think he will be able to manage the last three stages!!!! This is the Fluoridation stage!! A small amount of Fluoride is added to us in some areas, as it makes the enamel layer of teeth more resistant to decay.
Second last stage!!! YAYYYY!!! This is the post-chlorination disinfection treatment which kills any remaining microorganisms. The pH is adjusted to be slightly basic. Sometimes extra chlorine is added in a process known as super chlorination when the levels of bacteria are high. WOW we have one stage left and it has been such a journey!!
WE MADE IT TO THE LAST STAGE!!! In this stage ammonia is added at the end of the treatment process to stabilize the chlorine so that it remains dissolved in the treated water for longer periods of time, keeping the water safe during its long trip through the distribution system. Ammoniation also prevents minute amounts of chlorine from evaporating out of your drinking water causing smells and associated tastes. I can't believe it is over what a journey this has been!!!! I couldn't have done it without my amazing friends Steph, Steve, Stephen, Steven, and most importantly Daniel!!!
You thought I was gone!!!! HAHAHA! I still have to wait while being stored in a water toil transported to wherever they send me!!!! I cant wait to get out of this place!!! Daniel is getting to close to me and he smells :(((
We made it out of the water tower FINALLY!!!!!! We were transported to some country house out near Ingersol which belongs to the Stevenson's!!! But when we got there a boy by the name of Daniel ate my best friend Daniel the water molecule :((( my life is now over :(( I'm so upset :((
