Private Water Supply specialists you can trust
Every aspect of the installation and maintenance of a private water supply and its water filtration is crucial. Spring and Borehole supplies can harbour harmful bacteria, therefore filtration and treatment is of paramount importance.
You can trust Prosep to deliver all these things effectively and ensure that you have a constant, consistent safe water supply for you and your family, or business all year round.
We provide the complete, bespoke service from the source to the tap and monitor every step of the way. All at competitive prices and all designed for YOU.
All work is carried out by our fully insured and experienced engineers, using only tried and tested products and spares – and all our work is fully guaranteed.
Domestic Private Water Supplies
You and your family will have an uninterrupted supply of clean safe water all year round.
We can install the correct filtration, carry out risk assessments and arrange for UKAS-approved water testing.
If your supply is only used for one house, the 2009 Private Water Supply Regulations don’t require you to have your water tested on a regular basis: these supplies are only sampled and risk assessed at the owner’s or occupier’s request. However, we would not recommend that you leave things to chance – over time water quality can change, so it’s worthwhile, if only for peace of mind, to have checks carried out on your water supply annually.
If the source supplies more than one property then the shared supply must be risk assessed at least once every 5 years and be tested at least once per year. The actual number of tests will depend on the water consumption.
Commercial and Large Supplies
We can provide a reliable and flexible service for a variety of businesses and ensure your supply will meet all the necessary requirements.
If your private water supply is used by the public for drinking, washing, food preparation, or may enter the human chain (e.g. via dairies, washing equipment etc), then you will be expected to meet stringent, safety parameters.
Tests will also need to be carried out every five years.
This also includes bed and breakfast accommodation, holiday lets, pubs, dairies, food production premises and domestic supplies to more than 50 people.
Agriculture and Farming
It has been shown that using your own private water supply (e.g. boreholes, rivers, springs, lakes or wells) could mean substantially reducing the running costs of your enterprise compared with using metered mains supplies.
We can install a supply from arranging the borehole drilling, to ensuring the supply meets all the necessary standards for private water supplies, used on a commercial basis.
Naturally, we can provide the regular ongoing servicing that you’ll need and arrange for the testing as necessary.
Camping and Outdoor Pursuits
Camp sites and outdoor pursuit centres, often rely on private water supplies to deliver water to their visitors and it’s essential that the supply is both, reliable and safe.
We’ll ensure that this is the case and our service options will help you keep the supply safe, all year round.
These businesses are subject to the same rules and regulations that apply to commercial private water supplies and will need to be tested regularly: we can arrange for all the necessary tests with a UKAS-approved service.
Holiday Lets & Rental Properties
Holiday lets and rental properties that rely on private water supplies, also have to meet the regulations set out for commercial use.
We can install a system that will be ideal for your particular circumstances and if you choose our ongoing service contract, we will help you maintain a regular and safe supply for your visitors and residents.
New Builds & Renovations
If you’re building a new property that relies on a private water supply, or are restoring an old one that has been vacant for some time we can help. Just give us a call and we can advise you about what you might need and also the category the project might fall under (e.g. domestic or commercial).
