The Problem

Borehole water treatment for nitrate reduction in Wiltshire, supplying 55 outlets.

This job took 5 days to complete, below is a day by day timeline of this installation.


The Timeline

Day 1- We installed the valves and located all the vessels and filled them with media.

Day 2- Pipework installed and the backwash lines piped up with raw and treated outlets and inlets. Connected the backwash pump.

Day 3- Installed all electrical units and clipped all wires to the walls. Tank to arrive tomorrow

Day 4- 8,000 litre tank arrived on site.  Tank installed along with brine tanks and brine lines.

Day 5- Pressure test and connected the tank. We will be back on site in two weeks’ time to check the system is working correctly and at this point we will test and submit the samples to the laboratory.
