Private Water Supplier: Outline

Water, as it percolates through the ground, often becomes contaminated with micro-organisms like E.coli and can absorb minerals, typically iron and manganese. The contamination might make you seriously ill or give the water an unpleasant taste, and cause problems with staining of laundry or baths. We can provide analysis and offer advice on treatment for your supply. Some sources are contaminated throughout the year and some particularly so after a period of wet weather. The quantity of water available can be affected by the weather.
