Water Treatment in London

10th March 2020

Water is intrinsic to almost every aspect of our lives, from basic functions such as drinking and washing through to manufacturing, the built environment, heating and cooling; and even our use of the internet – every gigabyte of data we use has a water footprint of around 250 litres.

London requires 2.6 billion litres of water every day, yet it is the driest and most heavily populated part of the country.

London is also a major economic area and the hub of many UK industries; home to businesses, financial and corporate headquarters, tech start-ups, data centres, as well as creative sectors, media and retail – all of which rely on water for their staff, building services and operations.

Good water treatment practice is vital to businesses:

  • Keeps HVAC systems running efficiently
  • Reduces the risk of costly downtime
  • Prevents build-up of harmful bacteria, such as Legionella
  • Protects pipework from corrosion
  • Safeguards building occupants

Guardian Water Treatment provides cutting-edge water hygiene services to a wide range of buildings in the London area, from iconic architecture and listed buildings to modern creative campuses.
