How can we help your business?

We all depend on water to some degree - if you need emergency water whenever the mains water supply is disrupted, or help keeping business up and running when business continuity is key, providing water solutions for events, festivals and concerts or ensuring athletes are hydrated, or just need safe and flexible bulk and portable water solutions, we can support them all.


Emergency water requirements

An unexpected water leak or burst main supply can be a huge inconvenience to your business. It affects not only the continuation of the operation, it can also be a risk to staff welfare and health and safety. We work in collaboration with water companies to ensure their customers are delivered with potable water – when required. As a means of meeting emergency aid, we support water companies help meet their Security and Emergency Measures Direction (SEMD) for small to large scale operations around the clock.  With a 24/7 manned response service team so you’ll always feel like you have someone to talk to and one who can provide you with service support – especially in an emergency.


Business continuity provision

Contingency planning for water is crucial. Having a plan in place will help manage this risk by ensuring the most optimum water solution is agreed upon. This may involve doing a risk assessment of your site, logistics involved and response time required. In addition having a 24/7 manned response service we can ensure you of a delivery every time.


Event water provision

The ability to offer bespoke water solutions for small scale local events or large scale festivals, water is a given. Most importantly, the supply and quality of water is an essential part of keeping consumers hydrated and in turn providing them a quality experience. 


Hygiene and compliance

Operating in an industry where health, safety and hygiene is paramount, having a health and safety team that are dedicated to providing assessments and training to ensure your water supply needs are taken care of is essential. Ensuring stringent internal audits are carried out ensure that standards meet / exceed the relevant industry legislation, such as BS8551:2015 concerning the cleanliness of our vehicles and with the handling of potable water.
