All of the water that we supply to customer facilities is potable (‘wholesome‘) drinking water. We never supply water that is not potable – indeed we are not able to provide such water. We would always warn customers against securing supplies of unsafe water for any purpose, as there is always the risk of accidental ingestion or deliberate ingestion by children or people who may believe that the water you are providing is drinking water.
Our water supply, including piping and hoses, is regularly tested by our regional water authority in their labs to check that there is no risk of contamination and danger to the public. Alongside testing the supply they also run lab tests on our equipment: the lorry tankers, hoses, etc.
Ensuring the hygiene of our water and equipment isn’t only of vital importance when we supply drinking water to festival camp grounds, local communities, etc., it is important when we supply any water that may come into contact with people whether deliberately (for example showering facilities, swimming pools) or accidentally (e.g. agricultural use, temporary structure ballast tanks).
Our Personnel and Suppliers
We use an external hygiene specialist company to clean the water tanks on the trucks every six weeks, who are very experienced in the dairy industry with regards the hygiene of liquid tankers.
