Private Water Supply

s10全球总决赛竞猜A private water supply is a supply not on the ‘mains’. Mains water is drinking water provided by a Utility. The main Utility Companies in the North of England are Yorkshire Water, Northumbrian Water and United Utilities. A private water supply is called ‘private’ as it is privately owned. Most private water supplies in the North of England are located in rural parts of counties such as Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Derbyshire.

Private Water Supply: Owners and users responsibility

Private water supplies vary in quality. Some supplies have good water treatment and are well maintained, others leave a lot to be desired. 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 appropriate to a private water supply are laid out in the private water supply regulations.

Private Water Supply – The essentials

Owners and users of a private water supply can take measures to improve water quality. The main ones are;
a) The installation of a correctly sized and appropriate water filtration system, including a good quality UV and pre-filtration.
b)Ensuring that stored water installed after the UV Disinfection is properly sealed and is rodent proof.
c) Source protection. Preventing grazing animals for getting close to the source and reducing the ingress of surface water at the point where the water emerges from the ground.

“We live in an old farmhouse needing much repair. Water flow and quality has always been a problem. We were looking for a company that could help us trace the water back to source and give sound advice on how to achieve the best solution for us. The service was outstanding. You took our problem seriously and treated it with urgency. Matt worked beyond normal working hours and didn’t compromise on anything. We could not have hoped for a better, more professional and friendly service. The personality of the company is great – this includes everyone. We would recommend Springhill water anytime.”

Leisure Private Water Supply

Many caravan parks, trout farms and rural hotels use water derived from a spring or borehole. Water feeding these premises have to meet high standards of water quality. Springhill have been treating water to this type of supply since 2003 and have built up a reputation for excellence in sales and service.

s10全球总决赛竞猜 “Initially contacted Springhill to advise us on a suitable upgrade to our existing water treatment facility used on our caravan holiday park. Ended up sinking a borehole. The borehole is up and running and the water has been passed by the council.”

s10全球总决赛竞猜 “Our water treatment system (designed to remove extremely high levels of iron and manganese) from our borehole supply was overly complicated and not effective or reliable. Matthew installed a new simplified and effective system that we now have confidence in. The advice and service we received throughout was excellent.”
