Imagine that your production has come to a standstill because of the water shortages, imagine your equipment has been damaged because of the limescale and water contamination in your water supply, imagine that your production water has become brown with a bad smell, imagine there is no bottled water available for drinking, and imagine there is no clean water available anywhere? This has become a reality in South Africa. According to the UN Millennium Development Goals Report, 11 percent of the global population does not have reliable access for clean drinking water. Reality is that big companies close down because of the water issues in South Africa.
Water has received a lot of attention in the media as issues regarding the water crisis rise in South Africa, in fact, South Africa is one of the many countries that’s faced with water shortage and water quality issues. RO Water and major companies in South Africa have been involved with efforts to assure that companies can proceed with production where water is needed. We have even been involved in the recycling of production water to re-use and to reduce water bills. We are also one of the leading companies that purifies borehole water for use in production purposes and for drinking purposes. Among the water issues we are dealing with we should also take into consideration that business owners and major companies have been looking at alternative water sources including groundwater, well water also known as Borehole. There is ground pollution that should be taking into consideration when changing the water source from municipal water to other sources of water supply there. Preventing loss in production because of water contamination can be a costly investment but repairing and replacing machinery can even be costlier.
The global water crisis isn’t just an issue for the developing world, but one which will be even more intense in the industrialized world, which has a lifestyle of excess and overuse. A typical commercial office building can consume up for 10 billion litres of fresh water every day. To provide an idea of the scope of that usage, it’s comparable to the quantity of water which goes over Niagra Falls in 4 hours. There are various reasons for this conspicuous consumption, but among the biggest culprits are construction, production processes in general industrial processes.
