THE water situation in South Africa is going to get worse before it gets better, and unfortunately, the heavy rains that we have had over the last few weeks have hardly affected the levels of the dams in KZN.

The KZN Department of Water & Sanitation reports the KZN dam levels as follows [1]:

In March 2016, KwaZulu-Natal Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube said: “Durban – KwaZulu-Natal municipalities have to cut water usage by 15% or there will be no water in the province by the end of 2016.” [2]

But you aren’t helpless - you don’t have to just watch and wait for water restrictions, pressure drops and increased water billing rates. There are two simple home improvements that you can make which will not only benefit your home and your wallet during a water crisis, but will help to take the “pressure” off the municipal supply.

Rainwater Harvesting: Collect the free rainwater that falls on your roof, and store it in a water tank. You can then use this water for your lawn, your pool, your toilets and your showers, and even filter it for drinking water.

Municipal Home Reservoir: Redirect the water from the main supply to a water tank, and have the option to pump that water into your home. If the municipal water supply is restricted or the pressure drops, you still have a tank of water and your own pressure pump.

Systemation Blue will consult with you to design and install the solution best suited to your home. Contact David Campbell on 083 443 2526 or visitwww.systemation.co.za for more information. - Supplied
