The Springhill Private Water Supply
Clean & SafeMy partner and young family were rightly concerned about drinking, bathing and cooking with water that effectively came from a boggy bit of land on the hillside. The system that Matthew created was and remains extremely effective and became our template for many hundreds of other private water supply filtration systems.
Tried & Tested FiltrationOur range of installations includes UV disinfection, pH correction, iron water filtration, booster pumps and borehole pumps. Over the years we have installed a wider range of water filtration equipment and water pumps in a wide range of properties that includes hundreds of large, medium and small sized domestic properties.

What is a Private Water Supply?
Types of Private Water SupplyThere are several types of private water supply. The main types of private supplies are boreholes, springs, streams, wells and rainwater harvesting. There is a big difference between a mains water supply and a private water supply. The main difference being mains and private is that a mains water supply is treated with chlorine whereas a private water supply is untreated. Because the owner of a private water supply does not pay water rates they are solely responsible for treating their water.
The Private Water Supply Regulations
The Drinking Water Inspectorate regulates mains water. Local Councils are responsible for regulating private water supplies in their area as they report to the Drinking Water Inspectorate. The standards for water quality in a private water supply are laid out in the private water supply regulations. The regulations set the standards for wholesomeness because untreated water is very likely to be unwholesomeness. Many private water supplies contain Pathogens like E. coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium and Campylobacter.<br>
