Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM: ITS RATIONALE AND BACKGROUND Introduction Water is the key to a person's survival because

without water survival is simply not an option. However, water has to be purified otherwise bacteria in the water can be harmful to your drink. This is highlighted

especially in the Third World countries such as Ethiopia and Gambia where many people die due to contaminated water that contains lots of bacteria that cause infection and illness. maintain In all countries water is considered valuable to its purity and it must go through several

processes such as reverse osmosis which is quite expensive. However there are cheaper ways to purify water; it wouldn’t even cost you money. One example is solar heat. It

has been tested and proven to purify water in many parts of the world. On the other hand, the seed extract of Moringa oleifera, commonly called Malunggay in the Philippines, has been tested and also proven to purify and kill bacteria living in water. Both of these ways are proven and tested by The if

Moringa seed extracts and Solar Heat can be used in water purification. Background of the Study The use of solar heat has been reported to be very effective in purifying water. The use of raw malunggay

seed extract has also been reported to be a good water purifier. Considering that both solar heat and malunggay seed extract are not costly at all when used in water

purification, and both

of these ways are proven and tested

by researchers but not using these two as a combination, the researchers found it logical determine if the combination of to try to verify both solar heat and and

malunggay seed extract is effective in purifying water.

Theoretical/Conceptual Framework This study is anchored on both foreign and local

claims, based on their studies, that solar radiation and moringga seed extracts have been tested and proven to be effective in purifying dirty waters. Sia (2008) reported that moringa seeds could treat

water on two levels, antimicrobial agent.

and it can lower the bacterial concentration

in water so that it will be safe to drink. And it can also be used as a quick and very simple method for cleaning dirty water in rivers. Waters are purified to improve its quality and make it fit for human consumption. Water purification does not only kill the harmful bacteria found in dirty waters but it also aims to make the water looks clear and remove all its

impurities to make it more acceptable to user.

With the positive reports and encouraging results of earlier studies made about water purification using solar

heat Moringga seeds, the researchers find it interesting to find out how the combination of malunggay seed extracts and solar heat exposure affects the quality of dirty waters in terms of its pH, turbidity and the presence of harmful

micro-organism, Escherichia coli. An evaluation is to made regarding the hypothesis that states that “ H0: There is

no significant difference in the water before and after it is exposed to malunggay extract and solar heat in terms of turbidity, pH and number of the Coliform bacteria.” And for the “H1: There is a significant difference in the water

before and after it is exposed to malunggay extract and solar heat in terms of turbidity, pH and number of the Coliform bacteria.” The schema clearly illustrates the relationship

between the Independent Variables (IV) and the Dependent Variables (DV). There are two (2) IVs in the left box, namely: Malunggay The Seed first is the to concentration one (1) or Number water of for

Statement of the Problem This study aims to determine if Malunggay (Moringa

oleifera Lin.) seed extract and solar heat are effective in water purification. Specifically, this study seeks to answer the following sub-problems: 1. Is there a significant difference in the water before and after it is exposed to malunggay extract and solar heat in terms of turbidity, pH and number of the

Coliform bacteria? 2. How many malunggay seeds are needed to purify a

liter of open well water? 3. Does malunggay alter water pH? Hypotheses On the bases of the research problems stated, two

hypothesis are hereby formulated: H0: There is no significant difference in the water before and after it is exposed to malunggay extract and solar heat in terms of turbidity, pH and number of the Coliform bacteria. H1: There is a significant difference in the water before and after it is exposed to malunggay extract and solar heat in terms of turbidity, pH and number of the Coliform bacteria.

Significance of the Study This study hopes to create an impact on people’s

health and the economy. People’s Health. who are living in People in the rural areas, or those the hinterlands where there is no

purified water available,

just drink water taken from

open wells. They are highly vulnerable to getting sick with diarrhea from their dirty or contaminated drinking water. Using this type of water purification can lessen the cause of diarrhea and many other diseases caused by harmful

bacteria in water. The purification process is very easy to do because even small children can do it right and it

doesn’t use sophisticated and costly gadgets. The Poor. The poor living in either rural areas or in

the cities can do water purification by themselves using malunggay and solar radiation which is cash-saving. Poverty won’t be a hindrance for the poor to drink clean and safe water. Economy. This study can also be a big help in the

economy of our poor families and the nation, in general, because it doesn’t use any expensive chemicals and

(Donovan, 2007) Heat. Clean drinking water is lacking in many parts of the world and many persons die because of this. It is

estimated that two million people die every year because of water related diseases. By using solar radiation to kill bacteria and microorganisms, it would reduce the amount of people dead and prevent diseases in a very useful and cheap way. This can be done with clear plastic bottles made of clear plastic, then fill the plastic with water and fill with clear water and place above roofs. The radiation will kill the microorganisms after 5-6 hours in the sun. The method will be faster if the temperature is higher, it

would be recommended to paint half of the bottle black and the black part will face the ground or the surface of the roof. This method only works in clear water not pond or

developing countries. Water purification, or drinking water treatment, is

the process of removing contaminants from surface water or groundwater to make it safe and palatable for human

consumption. A wide variety of technologies may be used, depending on the raw water source, contaminants present, standards to be met, and available finances. Sources of Drinking Water to be used in public or private water

The antimicrobial aspects of moringa continue to be researched. The process of treating the water with moringa seeds would take at least one to two hours. As reported by Helen Flores from The Philippine Star, Reports said moringa seeds, seed kernels or

dried presscake can be stored for long periods but moringa solutions for treating water should be

prepared fresh each time. In general, one seed kernel will treat one liter of water. Solutions of moringa seeds for water treatment may be prepared from seed kernels or from the solid residue left over after oil extraction.
