Many Private water supplies have elevated levels of iron and manganese which require treatment for use as potable (drinking) water and also to remove the problem of discoloration in sanitary ware and laundry (especially whites).

High levels of Iron and manganese are usually combined with a low pH. All three can be treated with a single system.

Low pH (i.e. less than pH7) in water does not usually render it undrinkable but it does have a corrosive affect on copper & iron pipework including copper hot water cylinders. The acid can also raise the level of dissolved copper in the drinking water to unacceptable levels.

Most private water supplies will require disinfection. Normally this would involve using Ultra Violet light but other solutions may be considered.
