Source Water Intake


Every water treatment process starts at the source. For Tampa Bay, this often means tapping into the Hillsborough River, a vast and vital waterbody. Aqua-Wise carefully selects water from reliable sources, setting the foundation for the treatment journey.


1. Coagulation and Flocculation


Once sourced, water undergoes coagulation—a process where chemicals are added to bind impurities together. Flocculation follows, causing these particles to form larger masses. This stage prepares water for easier removal of impurities in subsequent steps.


2. Sedimentation


In this stage, water rests, allowing the heavier particles, now formed into floc, to settle at the bottom. The clearer water then moves on for further refinement.


3. Filtration


Filtration acts as a meticulous sieve, removing finer particles that may have escaped sedimentation. Aqua-Wise employs advanced filtration systems to ensure water clarity and purity.


4. Disinfection


To eliminate remaining microbes and bacteria, a disinfectant like chlorine is added. This step safeguards water against harmful pathogens, assuring its safety for consumption.


5. pH Adjustment


Maintaining the right pH balance is crucial. Aqua-Wise ensures water is neither too acidic nor too alkaline, guaranteeing it's not only safe but also pleasant tasting.


6. Distribution


With treatment complete, water is distributed through a network of pipes, reaching homes and businesses across Tampa Bay. Aqua-Wise's efficient distribution systems ensure timely delivery.
