We’ve installed two specialised UV peroxide water treatment systems to remove taste and odour experienced in Waihi and Paeroa over the last few summers.

These systems are working, but figuring out how much peroxide is needed to get rid of the earthy taste without adding too much is not an exact science.

Please bear with us while we fine tune our systems.

In short, we’re doing our best to keep ahead of the taste curve but there may be short periods where the water still tastes a little muddy, before we have a chance to crank the dose up.

We understand this may be frustrating at times and appreciate your patience while we work to get this right.
How does the water taste at your place?

Your feedback really helps us gauge when we need to increase the level of treatment, so we appreciate you keeping us informed. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call, or message us on Facebook.
