Water Quality for Building Construction (IS 456:2000)

Water is one of the most important elements in construction and is required for the preparation of mortar, mixing of cement concrete and for curing work etc. The quality of water used has a direct impact on the strength of the motor and cement concrete in the construction work. The water used for curing and mixing must be free from high quantities of alkalis, acid, oils, salt, sugar, organic materials, vegetable growth, etc that might be deleterious to bricks, concrete or iron.

Impurities in water can cause metal corrosion, introduce unwanted silt and clay into the concrete, adversely affect the hardening process of concrete and also reduce the strength by even 25%. Thus the need to ensure the quality of water used during construction is vital.
