Rainwater Harvesting is fast becoming a necessity to survival in some parts of South Africa. It’s the best way of going green and being kind to the environment. The Garden Route is currently going through the worst drought in 153 years, with heavy water restrictions imposed in Mosselbay.
Today it was confirmed that Beaufort West is experiencing its worst drought in over 100 years. Water levels of the Gamka dam reached an all-time low of minus nine percent last week. The town now rely on borehole water.
South Africa’s dams can no longer supply the volume of water required by ever growing population. There is not a single river left in the Western Cape that can be dammed anymore. We simply have no other options.
Water Conservation including Rainwater Harvesting and Greywater re-use, is the only long term sustainable solution to South Africa’s water crises.
Water Rhapsody has been developing it’s Rainwater Harvesting technology and greywater re-use systems for sixteen years. We’ve also recently introduce the Poseidon Advantage. A very useful system for re-using and recycling car wash water.
All our systems are designed, so that you don’t change your lifestyle. You can still use as much water as you currently do, it’s just what happens to the water after it’s use. Greywater can safely be re-used within 24 hours. You’d be able to irrigate your garden with greywater and you wouldn’t need to draw municipal water for garden irrigation. It will reduce your consumption by 33%, whilst you still irrigate your garden, even if there is water restrictions imposed. We’ve installed well over 3000 of these systems in Cape Town alone.
