Drinking Water Supply
National Water Hygiene Blue Card
All Tardis water technicians and tanker drivers delivering water hold the EUSR National Water Hygiene ‘Blue Card’ as a minimum. The UK water industry recognise the scheme as a crucial part in ensuring the protection of public health and promoting safe drinking water practices.
Bulk Drinking Water Suppliers
Our bulk water tankers can deliver up to 30,000 litres of quality assured drinking water per load.
All water loaded onto Tardis H2O tankers are drawn from licenced water authority sources using a hydrant, standpipe and relevant pipework.
Preparing Drinking Water for Delivery
With drinking water, procedures are followed to preserve the integrity of the water being loaded on to the tanker and protect its fitness for purpose.
This begins with the preparation as the tanker as the bulk holding vessel. We wash the tanker out and disinfect it, following a procedural routine, before any loading of water.
Hoses and fittings used are WRAS approved and are disinfected before use.
After loading water has been tested from the tanker and verified as fit for purpose (drinking). Drinking water supply from Tardis is tested and verified before drinking water delivery to site.
The water is quality assured as fit for purpose from the point of loading to the point of delivery.
Responsibility for the fitness for purpose of the payload passes from Tardis H2O to the client at the point of delivery.
It is essential that to preserve the fitness for purpose of the water payload. The receiving vessel has been prepared in the same way as the tanker, with the integrity of the payload in mind.
If the storage vessel has is supplied by Tardis H2O, it will have been correctly prepared and the lid closed and sealed.
If the seal is broken or has been tampered with, then the integrity of the storage vessel cannot be guaranteed.
Delivery of Drinking Water
Once delivery of drinking water has taken place, a test of the integrity of the payload must be carried out after 24 hours uncontrolled storage, then subsequent testing for fitness of purpose must be carried out and the results documented.
As a complete verification that the contents of a vessel are safe to drink, the advice ‘BOIL BEFORE DRINKING’ should be attached to the dispensing vessel as a safety warning.

What is Potable Water?
Potable water is also known as drinking water. Drinking water is safe for human consumption and is often used to prepare food, etc. Tardis H2O provides potable water delivery to site.
One of our recent jobs involved providing bulk clean water for making concrete on a mobile batching plant. Our clients had a large area to prepare for warehousing, so this job called for water, lots of it.
