About us

Brightwater is an ambitious challenger to the larger players in the market, providing water and waste water services to businesses in Scotland. Our primary aims are simply to serve our customers well with great prices, give genuinely helpful advice to reduce water consumption and costs, and provide a professional, friendly and reliable service.

We’re a Scottish company, working with Scottish companies to save on Scottish Water.

We don’t believe in the current ‘switch and forget’ approach to the industry, instead we ‘consult, advise and action’. We want to work with our customers to help them get the most out of their water services, become more water-wise and reduce their consumption.

It may seem counter intuitive that we want to win your business and then persuade you to use less of our product. That’s the Brightwater way and we believe, a key differentiator.

Water is a finite resource, yes even in Scotland, and we want to do everything we can to minimise usage. If every business in Scotland were to reduce their usage by 10% this would save in excess of 16 billion litres a year – over 6,440 Olympic size swimming pools – and save Scottish business up to £35 million in water charges each year.

We don’t just aim for great service and unbeatable prices, they’re our starting point.
