Pride is in general a word one should guard against, yet we are proud of the fact that not only do we conserve water, but we are also well known around Gauteng, the North West and even as far as Mpumalanga for our ability to install various types of water conservation systems. From commercial to residential, both aesthetics and financial; we will ensure that you save water and money and it will be aesthetically pleasing.
Whether you agree with climate change / global warming / whatever you want to name it, or not, is immaterial to us. The world is facing a water crisis, that is a fact. We have all followed the water woes in the Cape; from almost running out of water to flooding. Extreme rainfall and drought will be experienced more and more often, even if global climate targets are met; it is just another fact.
Saving water, working towards a sustainable future with enough water, is our goal. It doesn't matter to us whether we install one small little tank at a Retirement Estate or an entire tank farm taking a commercial property off the grid. Every drop matters and we will assist anyone that wants to save water.
Proudly conserving water...

Rainwater harvesting is not a new concept; it is an ancient practice. It is a technique that collects and stores rainwater for irrigation, laundry, toilet flushing, pool top-up, wash bays and as an off-grid/alternative supply of water. In some areas it is still the only supply of water. Rainwater can be collected from various hard surfaces such as rooftops and/or other man made above ground hard surfaces. Rainwater harvesting is growing in popularity due to an overall interest in reducing the consumption of potable water and the inherent qualities of rainwater. Unfortunately urban living, population increase, climate change, failing infrastructure, pollution, our lifestyles (to name a few) are all contributing to a worldwide water crisis. It is actually really very simple; our demand exceeds our supply and to sink another borehole isn't the answer; we are busy depleting our groundwater supply. To secure a future with enough water we have to save water; we have to harvest rainwater, because:
- It is a natural resource and reduces flooding, storm water runoff, erosion and contamination of surface water.
- It reduces the need for purchasing bottled water.
- It is an excellent source of water for irrigation
- It is relatively simple to install, depending on the application.
- It reduces your water bill.
- It supplies water during water outages.
- It promotes water and energy conservation.
The best part is you don't have to change your lifestyle; you don't have to start sharing showers and/or baths and you definitely don't have to shower in a bucket. Life can continue as usual whilst saving water. Always remember "Prevention is better than cure".
Harvested rainwater can be used for many applications :
What is rainwater and how to harvest it?
Rainwater is referred to as water falling and being harvested directly from your roof. We can harvest your rainwater from either existing gutters with down pipes or from fullbore outlets (hidden/ built-in down pipes). If we harvest from visible exterior down pipes then a first filter (debris only) will be installed at the down pipe. If we harvest from fullbore outlets then we will direct the water to a central area and filter it there before delivering it to the tanks. It will either be a dry / wet system, depending on the harvesting method.
We have different filters for different applications (off-grid, irrigation only, laundry, pool top-up, toilet flushing etc.) and may harvest differently, it depends. Each installation is designed around YOUR home, YOUR aesthetics and YOUR budget. We pride ourselves in being flexible and don't mind installing a small single tank (750L) at a pensioner's home or an entire tank farm (100kl or more) for a school/factory. If YOU want to harvest your rainwater we will find a way to make it work for you. Whether it's an old house, an existing modern house or a new-built, we can harvest.
Also remember your tanks don't have to be right next to the building, you can store your water Anywhere on the property. We will harvest it accordingly and no, we don't install ugly overhanging pipes to the tanks. It's all nice and neat underground.
