A Bespoke Service - the perfect system for YOU

Water Testing

We design our systems from the ground up, starting with a raw water analysis, which is usually taken by us. It is then tested in a UKAS accredited laboratory. The results show us what treatment is required to bring your supply up to regulation. If your water fails on anything, we will design our system to correct it. More information regarding Water Testing can be found here.

Water Filtration System Installations

We can install the system for you or, if you feel confident enough to do it yourself, give advice on how it should be correctly fitted. If you choose to self-install we recommend you have one of our engineers onsite to commission the system and to ensure it has been set up correctly. Cost of this is minimal. No two private water supply filtration systems are alike. Because of this, each one needs to be designed carefully, taking into consideration the source, environment and requirements.

Sectors we Cover - water filtration systems for all situations

Domestic Private Water Supplies

You and your family will have an uninterrupted supply of clean safe water all year round.

We can install the correct filtration, carry out risk assessments and arrange for UKAS-approved water testing.

If your supply is only used for one house, the 2009 Private Water Supply Regulations don’t require you to have your water tested on a regular basis: these supplies are only sampled and risk assessed at the owner’s or occupier’s request. However, we would not recommend that you leave things to chance – over time water quality can change, so it’s worthwhile, if only for peace of mind, to have checks carried out on your water supply annually.

If the source supplies more than one property then the shared supply must be risk assessed at least once every 5 years and be tested at least once per year. The actual number of tests will depend on the water consumption.

Commercial & Large Filtration Systems

We can provide a reliable and flexible service for a variety of businesses and ensure your supply will meet all the necessary requirements.

If your private water supply is used by the public for drinking, washing, food preparation, or may enter the human chain (e.g. via dairies, washing equipment etc), then you will be expected to meet stringent, safety parameters.

Tests will also need to be carried out every five years.

This also includes bed and breakfast accommodation, holiday lets, pubs, dairies, food production premises and domestic supplies to more than 50 people.

Agriculture & Farming

It has been shown that using your own private water supply (e.g. boreholes, rivers, springs, lakes or wells) could mean substantially reducing the running costs of your enterprise compared with using metered mains water supplies.

We can install a supply from arranging the borehole drilling, to ensuring the supply meets all the necessary standards for private water supplies, used on a commercial basis.

Naturally, we can provide the regular on-going servicing that you’ll need and arrange for the testing as necessary.

Camping & Outdoor Pursuits

Camp sites and outdoor pursuit centres, often rely on private water supplies to deliver water to their visitors and it’s essential that the supply is both, reliable and safe.

We’ll ensure that this is the case and our service options will help you keep the supply safe, all year round.

These businesses are subject to the same rules and regulations that apply to commercial private water supplies and will need to be tested regularly: we can arrange for all the necessary tests with a UKAS-approved service.

Holiday Lets & Rental Properties

Holiday lets and rental properties with a private water supply have to meet the regulations set out for commercial use.

We can install a system that will be ideal for your particular circumstances and if you choose our on-going service contract, we will help you maintain a regular and safe supply for your visitors and residents.

What is a Borehole?
