Our company install backup water systems which we install as a separate system or combine it with a rainwater harvesting system.
Many towns across South Africa are experiencing intermittent water supply problems. In many cases it is largely due to water infrastructure neglect by the local Municipality. In some instances there is just not enough water and the users are rationed.
It operates on a standby principle. A backup water supply tank is installed with a pressure pump system on standby. The moment the municipal supply stops and the pressure drops, the system automatically starts up and supplies the house or business with water until the municipal water supply has been restored.
It is recommended that at a minimum reserve capacity of 2-3 days be installed. This system is perfect for companies where water supply is critical, like the hospitality industry where guest cannot be inconvenienced due to the lack of water while on holiday or business.
