Contaminated water is filled into transparent plastic bottles and exposed to full sunlight for six hours.
How to use sunlight in treating the contaminated water through two synergetic mechanisms:
Radiation in the spectrum of UV-A (wavelength 320-400nm) and increased water temperature.
If the water temperatures raises above 50°C, the disinfection process is three times faster.
