We come under Veolia as our water supplier, who have said that they are banning use of their water for WFP, but are giving us until the 4th July to make other arrangements. While there is still a chance of a turn around, I have decided to set up rainwater harvesting (4 x 1000L IBC tanks), which I will fill using normal RO/DI to set me up - which is fine as long as this is done before 4th July. Called Veolia today - to clarify whether this ban includes Trolley systems as well as van mount systems - was told yes. Anyway - long story short, I was told that it is not just Veolia that are reviewing their policy on the 4th July -it is ALL water companies - and we may well find that other areas decide to ban WFP too! Wanted to give you guys the heads up - if you already have a hose pipe ban it may be worth stock piling a little water, and checking with your own company that this is the case. Apparently there is no problem going out of the area to fill up - as long as you go to somewhere with a plentiful supply - but in reality if this means extra fuel, time, and mad amounts of resin (as wont have time to use RO) then may not be a viable alternative. I had been looking to try and get a hydrant license in the Thames water are (we are only 3 miles out of their area) but have been told that my use is not covered, and they will possibly be doing the same as Veolia. If anyone has an existing Rainwater harvesting system set up - would love to see a few pics to make sure my planned setup is headed the right way. Hopefully this will all blow over - but I can't afford to wait until 4th July to be told that over***ht I am out of action. Being balanced, we have started doing downstairs traditionally - not to give wrong impression to customers, and to feel that we are doing the "right thing", and it is amazing how much less we use - but still use it for all upstairs, and leaded (pure laziness) Does anyone know any more/better?
