Abstract: 
The coagulant and disinfectant qualities of Moringa oleifera and Citrus paradisi were investigated on various water samples acquired from sachet water (packaged water), borehole water, river water and well water. The results revealed that Moringa oleifera functioned adequately at settling time beyond 2 h in highly turbid river water but was more effective when combined with Citrus paradisi. Moringa oleifera or its combination with Citrus paradisi is less effective for turbid water treatment but effective for river water (sample) purification. The number of total Coliforms and Escherichia coli reduced with the increasing treatment time.
