If you rely on your own private source of water whether it be 'surface water source' from rivers, lakes, streams or lochs or from a 'ground water source' such as springs, boreholes or wells, your private water supply will almost always need some form of treatment. Although the water may appear clear and taste good, it can still contain any number of contaminants which may negatively affect health over the long term. These may roughly be divided into three types, chemical, biological and sediment contamination.
We are able to offer a full range of private supply water treatment systems which include: Turbidity reduction, pH correction, Iron reduction, Manganese & Hydrogen Sulphide reduction, Hardness reduction (softener), Nitrate reduction, Hydrogen sulphide removal (only), Ammonia removal, Heavy metal reduction, Aluminium reduction, Organic reduction, UV water treatment systems and sterilisation.
To accurately determine the issues that require attention it is essential that the water is tested a full water analysis is obtained, with at a minimum testing for Iron, Manganese, Turbidity, pH, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Chloride, Nitrates, Lead, Aluminium and Coliforms.
We provide a comprehensive water testing analysis service through South East Water where you can receive preferential rates for your water testing via South East Water by buying water filters online at Puriflow Filters. The water testing conducted is only as good as the quality of the water that day and as water quality can very quickly change both seasonally and due to several other possible environmental factors, from a health perspective alone, we always recommend UV sterilisation with suitable pre-filtration for any private water source in order to ensure the water is free from bacteria, cysts and other microorganisms which have the potential to make people unwell.
