Residential Water Treatment

Treating your household water will vary depending on the source of your water. But don’t worry as we have solutions for treating Town water, Rainwater and other water sources like Ground and Surface water.

Where does your water come from?​

The source of your water determines the type and extent of treatment required. There are four key water sources for Australian households and they all require slightly different levels of treatment to ensure safe, clean and great tasting water for your household.

Readily available, cost effective and easy to catch and store. Rainwater is widely used in Australia for use around the home from simply watering the garden or flushing the toilet, right through to the entire households needs. Find out what is required to treat water for your needs here.

Bore Water

Bore water or ground water can provide high volumes of water for both household and irrigation use. Bore water usually requires additional treatment as it has site specific issues after having absorbed a variety of minerals from the surrounding earth and as such, requires a water test to determine the specific treatment requirements.

Town Water

Your local council has done a great job treating the raw water from your local source and sending it through its network safely to your house. That said, a simple treatment option can help improve the water quality in your home by removing any sediment that accidentally enters the network and also reduce the residual chlorine and other contaminants to improve taste and odour.

Surface Water

Lakes, dams, rivers and streams all provide surface water for individual household use in Australia. These sources often vary greatly through location, seasonality and weather events. Find out how to ensure your water quality can be consistent and safe year round.
