We have a great amount of experience dealing with water and sewage systems for houses and residential properties and the treatment plants that support them.

Sherborne Utilities have been recognised as a suitably qualified contractor by Wessex Water, Kier Construction, and Sovereign Housing. Our repair and maintenance operatives are trained to the same standards as those of Wessex Water. Our vans are outfitted to the same standard as their vehicles and our staff are regularly subcontracted by water providers.

All of this means that our engineers come pre-verified and pre-approved for pipe installation, maintenance, and repair on your property. You can have confidence that we’ll able to get your water and sewage up and running quickly and without hassle.

For larger residential projects and new builds, we can also design and install water distribution systems, sewage treatment plants, private water supplies, and water treatment plants. Ask us for more information.


Sherborne Utilities have been working with schools, colleges and universities on water and sewage systems since 2003.

Water distribution is relatively easy for us to handle in an educational setting. We can offer your organisation a comprehensive range of services when it comes to installation, repair, and monitoring. We’ll keep your systems working well through the year, not just term time.

Sherborne can also quickly isolate any faulty systems and repair them, allowing you to keep your school running while any maintenance needed is ongoing. We’ll trace and repair leaks on the same day, saving you time, disruption, and money. Our engineers will have the parts and advice you need.

We can also give you tips on the best ways to optimise and reduce your water consumption for your system, potentially saving you money. Our servicing, cleaning, and maintenance services can vastly reduce your risk of system failure at peak times. Ask us for an assessment today.

All of our staff are DBS Checked

Sherborne Utilities are a Self Lay Organisation (SLO). We are experts in the installation of large water and sewage systems. This means that we can install water mains to the exact standards required for local authority adoption. It’s this distinct skill that allows for us to work on larger civil and private projects.

Our close attention to detail in keeping to specification means that we can reduce the risks to you. Sherborne will make sure that your water mains and service pipes are installed correctly the first time, with no added problems or charges.

We can handle the installation, pressure testing, and chlorination of pipes up to 600mm in diameter. We work with a vast range of pipes, made from many different materials. Sherborne Utilities can also install sewage pumping mains, rising mains, pumping stations, and water treatment plants if need be. We already have experience working with a number of Blue Chip clients in the South West of England. Sherborne is also a qualified member of WIAPS, ensuring that our plumbing meets nationally recognised standards of excellence.

We’ll also handle the paperwork. Sherborne’s in-house knowledge of UK water regulations allows for us to make each project as smooth as possible. Our vast experience with local water company and inspector liaison makes sure that your project with us will fit neatly into the local system, as well.

Our engineers will work closely with site foremen, supervisors, quantity surveyors, and estimators to get the best possible results out of your project brief.

We can regularly monitor and service your system assets, reducing the risk of failure at a critical point.

If you administer a public building our Energy Managers can also help you with resource management. They’ll tell you the best ways to reduce your water consumption and save money on your water bills. We can identify the most cost-effective changes to your distribution system. Return on investment may mean that these changes pay for themselves.
