We are the experts in Water Purification since 1989, and specialize in different methods of water treatment such as Reverse Osmosis. Grey water is untreated wastewater collected from bathing, showering and hand washing. Laundry water from washing machines or hand washing only qualifies as grey water for re-use if environmentally friendly detergents are used. By re-using grey water rather than letting it go back into the sewerage system, you can reduce your water bill and limit the strain on the natural environment.

The amount of water available for use remains the same, and despite plans to increase storage capacity through the building of new dams or water transfer schemes, predictions are that the demand for water will outstrip supply by 2025. The only answer to this dilemma lies in changing people’s attitude and thus their behavior to use water more wisely, and in this regard Rand Water’s “Water Wise” campaign is visionary.

Wise Water Ways Cape Town

Wise Water Ways Cape Town. The water resources available per person in SA are dwindling. Besides human and business needs, water is also required to sustain the environment. Most water systems in SA are already at the point of over-utilization. This trend cannot continue, and as a result water conservation is critical to all South Africans. Everybody must become Water Wise. Research has indicated that changing people’s behaviour requires ongoing effort and resources, both to spread awareness and to constantly reinforce the message. The Water Wise campaign is aimed at increasing awareness of the need to value water and to use it efficiently and sustainably. It focuses on all water users which include but is not limited to the green industry, hotel industry, business, recreation industry, bulk customers (such as municipalities and mines), general public, schools, tertiary institutions, local authorities and the press and media. Water conservation is required in terms of the Water Services Act 108 of 1997 and various by-laws. Water conservation is also required to assist RW in fulfilling the requirements to achieve ISO14001, its corporate vision and customer service requirements.

conserve water and reduce energy costs by limiting the water through the faucet. These can be attached to taps or showerheads with little effort. Insulate hot water pipes to reduce the time and water wasted waiting for the water to heat up. A geyser blanket for insulation is also a good investment. Take shorter showers, and shower instead of bath. If you prefer to bath use less water. The water used to bath can then be repurposed to water your garden. Flush the toilet only when necessary. Lawns have been frowned upon in South Africa due to water restrictions. However, you can have one and save water. By using alternative water sources, you can rely less on Cape Town’s drinking water for your non-drinking needs (e.g. irrigating, landscaping, construction, sports fields, or flushing toilets). Learn about harvested rainwater, greywater and boreholes, wellpoints and reusing treated effluent to make the right choice for your home, business and the environment.
