Jar testing is a method that simulates coagulation and flocculation and can provide useful data to help operators to optimise the water treatment processes. Jar testing can be time-consuming and require technical knowledge to assess the results. However, jar testing can be a powerful tool to save money and enhance water quality as it helps determine which treatment chemical, dosage and dose will work best with their system’s raw water.
A jar testing practical guide was developed, including experiment set-up, operational procedure and data analysis to assist operators in overcoming the main constraints of jar testing.
