Work presented is a preliminary investigation of water purification using clay filters. This work was carried out to determine the efficiency of clay pots (as a filter) in removing water impurities. Filters and the related parts were fabricated and its efficiency in removing EC, TDS, TSS, hardness, BOD, COD, and some ions like Ca, Mg, Na, K, chloride, sulphate, Oil and grease was measured by passing water through the clay filters. The clay filters showed excellent efficiency in removal of TSS, BOD, COD, Oil and grease, sodium and potassium and negligible potential to remove hardness, EC, TDS, chloride and sulphate of water.
