About SmartWater

Frequently asked questions about SmartWater.

  • What is SmartWater?

     

    SmartWater is a traceable liquid that can be used to protect all kinds of items that may be targeted by thieves.

    Each bottle of SmartWater contains a unique forensic code, so anything marked with it can be identified and traced back to its owner (provided it has been registered with SmartWater Technology Ltd). It can also be used to link criminals with crime scenes. The liquid is almost invisible under normal light, but glows brightly under UV light, making it easily identifiable by the police.

  • How does it deter thieves?

     
    SmartWater is well known to criminals. By displaying the SmartWater logo you are sending out a powerful warning to any would-be thieves. In the unfortunate event that you experience a theft, any stolen property marked with SmartWater can be traced back to your church, providing the police with vital evidence to assist in a criminal prosecution.
  • What happens if I legitimately sell SmartWater marked lead or copper?

     

    If lead or copper is legitimately removed from the roof by approved contractors they should be provided with a letter or receipt of ownership to show at the scrap metal merchants.

    SmartWater also provide a Transfer of Ownership form that should be used in such instances. You can obtain this form by contacting SmartWater directly on 0333 320 7797 or by emailing church@smartwater.com

  • Can SmartWater withstand routine cleaning and polishing?

     

    Yes.

    SmartWater is very robust so you will not need to re-apply it after cleaning. Please make sure you carefully read the application guidelines supplied with your SmartWater pack.
