Purifying Water

Why purifying the water? 

Our water treatment systems are geared for the prevention of any waterborne live threatening diseases.
For instance chlorine and fluoride that’s been added to water by the municipal treatment plant in some instances react with organic matter that forms toxic, cancer forming organic products known as Trihalomethanes (THMSs).
Our industrial and domestic water purifiers come with pre-treatment for borehole water, well point water, rain water or river water.
Our pre-treatment system consist of sand, Activated carbon and water softeners to collect rust, sand, mud and other types of solids before the water can flow through your reverse osmosis membrane.

Health effects of drinking borehole water

Discuss the health effects of drinking borehole water.

What are the health effects of drinking borehole water?

 You have notice that we have published a post about the dangers of drinking borehole water.
I think it is time that we say something about the health effects of drinking borehole water.
People only see the bad things in life and don’t even notice the small things.

What is the difference between borehole water and municipality water?

People think that municipality water is better than borehole water.
The people that use borehole water on the other hand think that borehole water is better.
Which of the two is the best?
To be honest!
In my personal view I believe that borehole water is a better choice.
Yes, borehole water is the best choice.

Reasons why borehole water is better than municipality water.

Municipality water is laden with all types of chemicals, minerals and not to talk about all the diseases that are present in the water.
You would say that the water is been treated.
Treated my bud!
The water is been treated to have a clean appearance and some elements is been treated.
Do you think they remove any of the chemicals that may be present in the water?
We talk about thousands of different chemicals.
It is not possible.
You can read visit the page about “Tap Water Source”.
This would give you a better insight regarding municipality water.

Borehole water on the other hand could be contaminated with bacteria or some type of chemical.
This can be rectifying.
All that you must do is to get your water tested at an accredited laboratory.
With that test results it will show you what needs to be treated.
In my view there is not a 0.5 % of the stuff that is present in the municipality water present in the borehole water.
That is if the municipality sewerage manhole overflow into your borehole feed.

Municipality treated water versus borehole water.

Borehole water would be my first choice due to the chemicals that is present in the municipality water.
The question that must be ask:
what is the maintenance level at the local municipality sewerage plant and at the water treatment facility? That is for you to judge.
What do you think happened to the sewerage that flow from that manhole for the last two weeks?
Who take responsibility for that pollution?


Cape Town Borehole Water

Tell us more about Cape Town borehole water.

What is in Cape Town Borehole Water?

Cape Town Borehole Water is the water that can change from good to complicated results. Water has salt and hard water at the same time. Making it difficult to treat hard water due to the fact that salt is been used to get rid of the Calcium and Magnesium that accumulate on the resin in the water softener systems. I have seen water test results that couldn’t get worst. Everything that you can think could go wrong is present in the water.

Cape Town Borehole Water testing.

What frustrate me the most is some of the test results that we get especially from the Cape region? If I look to the test results it seems to me that the client was told to test for stuff that is not applicable. I want to ask people that want to test their borehole water to first make sure what they want to achieve with the results. Is it to test the water for human consumption or is it for gardening. Always ask for the SANS 241 standard test.

Cape Town Borehole Water filtration services.

We can advise, supply and install water systems for borehole water treatment and municipality water. When borehole water is the subject, we require a water test report from an accredited laboratory. We will not do any installation on borehole water if we don’t know the status of the borehole water. It is not about the money involved. We value the health and well-being of our clients and their families. We want to ensure that the water system that we install is the correct application for the specific water quality.

Cape Town water treatment systems.

Cape Town water is most of the time hard. Calcium and Magnesium cause the water to be hard. The two combine create this hard water effect. The only way to treat this is to install a water softener system. The maintenance of this system is a bag of salt once a month. The salt causes the Calcium and Magnesium to separate from the resin in the cylinder to be flushed out in the drain. This proses is called regeneration proses.

Renting Properties with Boreholes

We Renting Properties with Boreholes!

Advice for Renting Properties with Boreholes.

Renting Properties with Boreholes is common for years. It was normal practice to rent out a property that gets the water from a borehole. People did not ask a question on the quality of the borehole water. The first thing they ask is it borehole water? The next question is how much water the borehole can supply during an hour. That is the end of any question regarding the borehole. People think about all the water and what they can do with all the water.

Legal responsibility with Renting Properties with Boreholes.

Renting Properties with Boreholes have some responsibilities. Even that bank would want to know some critical information regarding the borehole water. First the bank wants borehole water yielding capacity. That is to ensure that the property have enough water.  The second information they need is, proof that the water is safe for human consumption. People just install a Reverse osmosis system and think that it is fine. That is not fine! That is only a fraction of the solution.

Water quality requirements for Renting Properties with Boreholes.

The water of the boreholes must be safe for human consumption. To state that you drink the water for years and nothing happened and that you are still healthy. That is no evidence that the water is safe for human consumption. The only thing that matters is to get the water tested at an accredited laboratory. Ask the people at the lab what the best test is to establish if the borehole water is safe for human consumption. A water shop is not accredited. When you receive the test results you can email it to us and we will study it and do recommendations. We would assist, supply, install and maintain the water treatment systems. Without the water testing results you would not know the quality of the water and what treatment system to use.
