Residual Control Systems in the Distribution Network

This week we caught up with Tom Caulfield from UGSI Solutions and asked him about the challenges he faced while working as an operator in the USA. He explains the benefit of introducing a smart and automated disinfectant residual boosting system and how this can positively impact water quality compliance and efficient introduction of disinfection in the distribution network.



New Partnership with Mackenzie Construction

Why are we so excited? It’s the thought of taking 25 years of Panton McLeod water quality expertise and blending it with a water sector focused civil engineering and structural repairs capability that is second to none. With a shared ethos and commitment to continuous improvement, the synergy between Panton McLeod and Mackenzie Construction offers a clear focus on safety, people, quality and sustainability.


Robotic Sediment Removal

Why has robotic sediment removal been so popular with our key clients? Simple; there’s no need to take a strategically important asset offline which avoids network impact. Taking a robotic approach to many tasks will be a key innovation focus for the water industry over the next few years and it can be hard to imagine what that looks like. We wanted to share some footage of what that looks like now!



Private Water Supplies

We talk to Matt Bower, Operations Team Leader from the Drinking Water Quality Regulator for Scotland (DWQR), about private water supplies and some of the challenges that can arise. It’s the responsibility of the owners to maintain water quality and there are many issues that they need to consider.


Reducing Bacti Failures

Many of our clients highlight the high level of importance associated with reducing the number of Bacti Failures they experience in their water storage assets.  Having investigated historical bacti failures, one of our clients has now drawn a noticeable link between dropping residual levels immediately before a bacti failure occurrence.



Leakage - Finding hard to reach leaks

Some industry sources suggest that as much as 80% of leakage comes from 20% of the leaks. The MTA Pipe Inspector specialises in finding hard to reach leaks. This video is an example of how Pipe Inspector found two leaks in the middle of Washington DC.


Work Hard, Play Hard!

This is a video that one of our team's put together, unprompted, for a bit of a giggle. We like how it reflects our values so much that we decided to share it with the world. Before any Hollywood execs come calling - they’re our production experts and you can’t have them!



Digitisation in the Water Industry - Rob Mustard, Director of Scottish Water

The digital footprint we expect to see in a modern-day water industry system is continuing to change. The appetite for instant information and instant results is becoming more apparent, but challenges are arising for how the water industry present those results in a meaningful manner.

Panton McLeod Webinars

At Panton McLeod we love to talk about water quality and the latest developments and innovations across the water industry. We will be holding regular webinars on topics from ROV’s to best practice cleaning methods. You can watch our recorded webinars here and you can sign up to our newsletter to take part in the upcoming events.


Active Mixing for Water Quality in Distribution

The US is well ahead of the UK on active mixing in Service Reservoirs, Ethan Brooke of UGSI talks to Neal Edmondson about what they've learnt. Two key regulatory drivers for drinking water quality are taste and odour complaints and bacti failures in Service Reservoirs (SRs).

PM100 Bio-Foul removal agent used below the water line to clean wells

Panton McLeod's Reg 31 and NSF listed bio-foul removal agent has been used for a number of years for the rehabilitation of well and borehole screens. The result of this treatment was a 72% increase in specific capacity significantly improving the flow through the screen into the well during pumping.


Nigel Watson, Director of Northumbrian Water Group talks Innovation

Nigel highlights Northumbrian Water Group's changing approach to Innovation as they prepare for the next AMP period and how he sees Innovation being even more important than before.

Service Reservoir Maintenance in Scotland with Matt Bower, DWQR

Matt talks to us briefly about why the DWQR are particularly focused on Service Reservoir Maintenance in Scotland and about the progress being made.

The Importance of Service Reservoir Maintenance with Simon Parsons

Simon visits us on site and talks briefly about the importance of Service Reservoir Inspections, Cleaning, and Maintenance from a Water Quality and Public Health point of view.

'Water Treatment' in Distribution with Tom Caulfield

Our live webinar in conjunction with our US partners UGSI, looking at water treatment beyond the treatment plant; mixing, THM reduction and Residual Control in distribution.


Gravity Filter Bed Cleaning...Yorkshire Water

We look at utilising our PM Solution in the cleaning of Gravity Filter Beds. Iron & Manganese bio-fouling reduces the performance of gravity filter beds causing blocked airlines & nozzles which reduces backwash and air scour performance.

A Short Interview with...Paul Horton

Jim Panton talks to Paul Horton, CEO of Future Water Association about the challenges facing the water industry in the next five year period, including the increasing importance of innovation for operations and maintenance.
