Due to increasing pollution, the availability of safe, clean and hygienic drinking water has become very difficult in the recent era. This study was conducted to evaluate the oligodynamic potential of various metals such as copper, bell, silver, aluminium, and brass as well as soil pot against the bacterial colonies in drinking water. The research focuses on the impact of different kinds of metals on bacterial growth in drinking water. The method of research includes the study of the growth and number of bacterial colonies present in drinking water and how much the metals inhibit the growth of bacteria at different time intervals. This study concludes that the copper, bell metal, silver and soil pot efficiently control the growth of bacteria and out of them, copper was found to be most effective in inhibiting bacterial growth. This study helps to provide an easy and cheap method for the purification of drinking water in rural and backward areas.
