Graphical Abstract: 
Aluminium sulphate is one of the most widely used coagulants for water treatment and has been proven to be an effective coagulant for the removal of certain contaminants, turbidity and colour. Aluminium sulphate used during the coagulation process is hydrolyzed in the water, forming polynuclear complexes. Aged aluminium solutions show different coagulation behaviour than that of freshly prepared solutions. Obtained results reveal that using of optimal aging solution of coagulant improves the coagulation process.
