Water is essential for life. If any pathogens present in the water they cause
diseases. So the water used for the purpose of drinking should have high
quality in order to lead a healthy life. Thus this study was taken with the
objective to study the effect of storage of natural water in different vessels
like copper, silver, brass, clay pot and plastic container by comparing the
number of microorganisms present in the water before and after storage.
This study proved that copper vessel is highly effective against water borne
pathogens and the other vessels like silver, brass and clay pot is also
significantly effective against the microorganism. But the plastic container
does not have any significant effect on the microorganism. The
physicochemical study revealed that there was a significant reduction of
electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids and
biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) in the water stored in copper, silver, brass
and clay pot when compared to plastic. The dissolved oxygen value is
reduced in plastic vessel when compared to that of the other vessel. This
study indicates that the water stored in plastic container contains more
number of microorganisms when compared to that of the other vessel.
