If you’re living in South Africa, especially Cape Town, you’ll know about the strict water restrictions that the government has put in place, and how many consumers and businesses are restricted to use water for certain functions of their daily lives and operations.
Let’s take for example a construction site. They consume a lot of water on a daily basis for various jobs. Direct and indirect. This includes water consumed by the workers, washing materials and equipment when it’s due for collection, preparing concrete, and dust suppression among other few uses.
Or what about carwashes, if you think about it, the taps are never turned off. They have to have a constant supply of water to operate and keep their clients happy.
Not only is it businesses that need water, but homeowners as well. Some of us have a deep love for nature, and therefore we’ll invest a lot of time and money into gardens. That being said, we need a good supply of water such as keeping our sprinklers turned on overnight, etc. Some of us love to swim but hate the beach, therefore we’ll invest in a pool. And we all know a pool takes thousands of liters to full, and to maintain.
Can you imagine how the municipality would go crazy, not only that, it will leave others without water?
That is why it is important to make use of water delivery services if you or your business require a large volume amount of water.
Companies that do bulk water deliveries make use of non-potable water. If you’re not familiar with the term I’ll quickly explain what it is in one short sentence.
Non-potable water is wastewater from the municipal or industrial sector that is converted to be reused for various purposes such as the filling of pool water, car washes, and construction sites to name a few.
Our government strongly advises that we make use of water delivery services where necessary.
