Private Water Supplies

  • - Do you have a property without a mains water supply and are unsure what to do next?
  • - Do you already have a mains water supply that you are interested in supplementing from other sources such as rainwater or grey water?
  • - Have you got a private water supply and are concerned about how good the water quality is and what you can do about it?
  • When looking for alternative water supplies, the main considerations are quantity and quality of the water source. Whilst it is technically possible to treat almost any water to drinking water standards, it does not follow that it is environmentally friendly to do so. Wales Water and Sewage Services can visit your site and assess your water use, potential water sources and the quality of any alternative water supply. We can advise on water collection, storage and treatment systems. If you already have a private water supply, or are considering purchasing a property with an existing private supply we can advise you on safety and maintenance.

    Judith is an authority on small scale water supplies in the UK and has written "The Water Book", a manual on finding, moving, storing and cleaning water. This is a practical guide to the issues surrounding water supplies and their installation and is available from the author via this site. More detail here.
