Abstract

  Drinking water is essential necessitate for daily life as there is dearth of water in many parts globally. Water quality ought to be such that it can be used by persons for drinking purpose. There are already plenty of solar units present in the market that can do reclamation process, as the available desalinization solar units clean the water safe to drink In desalination process the removal of salt and other minerals from the water is carried out to make it suitable for human consumption and industrial use. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a single frequently used household filtration system that cleans flush every contamination. RO is requisite if the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) exceeds a certain value (2000 - 3000 ppm). The main objective of this project is to use the sun as source of energy through solar desalinization technique which cleans water for drinking purpose and installed three or four desalinization solar units at village level that operates on solar power. The desalinization solar units performed better results if intake water adjustment was done @6 liters/hr/panel). The brackish water having 4.27 dSm-1 salts through solar desalinization technique reduced the toxic salts to 0.21dSm-1 at Goth Bashirullah, Gadani, Lasbela, Baluchistan. Water having so minute salts is fit for drinking purpose. This system creates awareness to the local communities.
