Specification of Water

 
Water for Construction

Water used for all construction works like masonry work, making concrete, mortar, bricks, or for other plain or reinforced general construction, should be clean and free from objectionable quantities of suspended materials, vegetables, or organic impurities like alkalis, salts, and other deleterious substances.

Because such deleterious materials cause efflorescence or are likely to interfere with setting of mortar or prove harmful to construction works. Clear and potable water is considered quite satisfactory for all purposes.
 
NOTE: In any case, salty water must not be used for construction works.


Deleterious Materials in Water
The following considerations are assumed to rectify maximum permissible limits of deleterious materials in water. 
1.    Limits of Acidity
2.    Limits of Alkali
3.    Percentage of solids
 
Limits of Acidity
 
To neutralize 200 ml of sample water, required caustic soda solution should not be more than 2 ml of 0.1 N.  The details of its test are given in I.S. 3025-1964.
 
Limits of Alkali
To neutralize 200 ml sample of water, required hydrochloric acid should not be more than 0.1 ml of 0.1 N. The details of its test are given in I.S. 3025-1964.
 
Percentage of solids  
The percentage of solids should not exceed the following limits when tested in accordance with I.S. 3025-1964

Dear Ayyaz,

Water is most important elements in construction work. The water used for mixing and curing should be clean and free from injurious quantities of alkalis, acid, oils, salt, sugar, organic materials, vegetable growth and other substances that may be deleterious to bricks, stone, concrete or steel. Potable water is generally considered satisfactory for mixing. The ph value of water should be not less than 6. 
                           In general thinking that the water fit for human consumption is generally acceptable for mixing mortar or concrete and curing work for construction work. However, the water must be tested before using in construction work. When you are making huge expenditure on construction work, a negligible amount spent on water testing should not be saved. Tested water or treated water should be used as this will increase the strength of cement concrete and enhance the life of building. For more detail about water for construction, take help from the article water for construction link given below    http://www.gharexpert.com/articles/Water-1837/Water-Construction_0.aspx

You can dig the bore well in the Northeast and use it for constructing the house. Also do not place heavy material like bags of cement/bricks or other material in the NE while constuction of the house.
