Total Coliforms|Fecal Coliforms|E- Coli-Defines

Total Coliforms:Coliforms are a group of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria that are nonpathogenic and nonspore forming. The most common coliform genera are Escherichia, Enterobacter, Citrobacter,Serratia, and Klebsiella, with E. coli being the most abundant in the gut of humans and other warm-blooded animals. Coliform bacteria are identifiable by their ability to ferment lactose to produce acid and gas within 48 [....]

Principle of Ion Exchange (IX)

         Ion exchange removes unwanted ions from a raw water by transferring them to a solid material, called an ion exchanger, which accepts them while giving back an equivalent number of a desirable species stored on the ion exchanger skeleton. 
         The ion exchanger has a limited capacity for storage of ions on its skeleton, called its exchange capacity; [....]
