Borehole & Private Water
Prodose are trusted by industry professionals including major utility suppliers to deliver systems that provide reliable supplies of clean drinking water.
We can also bring our chemical expertise and technical know-how to your private water supply.
The increasing cost of water from utility providers and difficulties in securing new connections to the grid has resulted in an increase in the number of private water supplies being registered in the UK.
Of course, if you establish your own water supply, you have to conform to regulations. Local authorities are scrutinising private operators more and more to ensure that their water supplies are safe.
If your local authority detects E.Coli, Legionella, Otal Coliforms, Pseudomonas or TVCs in your water, then you will need a dosing system capable of neutralising these pathogens.
At Prodose we design and commission borehole water treatment systems that make use of sodium hypochlorite, usually by means of an electrochlorinator. Alongside this technology, we would also install equipment to monitor residual levels of free chlorine. This means you can always be sure that your water has disinfectant potential.
Our systems for private water supplies make use of exactly the same technology we deploy in industrial situations, just on a smaller scale.
For peace of mind and to be sure than your borehole water is both safe to drink and compliant with all regulations, get in touch with Prodose. Our engineers will be pleased to talk about your specific situation and how we can help.

Electrochlorination is the process of using salt, water and electricity to produce a low pH Sodium Hypochlorite solution directly on site. It is highly efficient because the system can respond to the levels of free chlorine in the water and apply dosing only when required.
Our range of AMPRO electrochlorinators are ideal for many of these applications and come with a full after sales support package. These machines are ideal for small footprint systems and have features such as integral hydrogen degassing, making them safer for installation by third parties.
Our advice is impartial, and we won’t advise a course of action or recommend a piece of equipment unless we know it offers a genuine benefit to your process.
Chlorine dioxide is, quite simply, a more powerful oxidising agent than chlorine in every way. It works better as a disinfectant and has the advantage of also breaking down odours.
If you think a Chlorine Dioxide generator might be the best way to go, it is worth getting the benefit of our advice first. We are not on commission and have no interest in selling devices unless they are the most appropriate and effective option for your particular process.
Instrumentation and controllers are fundamental to our ability to control water treatment processes. It is through the use of reliable and accurate instrumentation that monitors key parameters within the water that we are able to provide information back to the controllers that in turn govern the process.
With a range of single parameter and multi-parameter controllers Prodose are able to supply instrumentation and control systems to meet the most difficult of disinfection control applications.
