ABSTRACT

 

The present paper deals with the study of corrosion in domestic appliances named geyser and water bath. A geyser is considered to be spring characterized by intermittent discharge of water ejected turbulently and accompanied by a vapour phase (steam) whereas water bath is one appliance which is used in laboratory. In both the appliances the used water was tap water and borewell water. The grey water quality status of both the appliances had been studied. The water samples collected from both the appliances were analyzed for important physico-chemical parameters such as pH, conductivity, TDS, total alkalinity, total hardness, chloride, iron, sulfate, phosphate and nitrate etc. The samples analyzed were compared with tap water and bore well water sample before the water was used in the appliances and the recorded values of all the parameters for grey water samples was found to be within the permissible limit whereas pH, TDS, Total Hardness, and Chloride was above the permissible limit. The samples analyzed for the grey water samples were compared with the SAWQG standard. The study also helped to suggest the means to get better eco remediation measures
