Water is about survival
Rainwater harvesting enables us to significantly reduce our reliance on municipal infrastructures.
Harvesting our rainwater is simple: collect – store- use
The current municipal crisis on the South Coast and the dire drought in the Cape have raised our collective awareness . Awareness without action, cannot effect change.
Conserve one of the most precious and sought after natural resources on Earth
All living things need water. 97 percent of Earth’s water supply consists of the salt water in our oceans, 2 percent is frozen in ice caps and glaciers, and only 1 percent is reachable and suitable for human consumption

Conserve Water – Save Money – Every Drop Counts
Check taps and pipes for leaks
A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 80 litres of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of litres.
Don’t use the toilet as an ashtray or rubbish bin
Every time you flush a cigarette butt, earbud, facial tissue or other small bit of trash, 20 litres of water is wasted.
Check your toilets for leaks
Put a little food colouring in your cistern. If, without flushing, the colour begins to appear in the bowl within 30 minutes, you have a leak that should be repaired immediately.
Most replacement parts are inexpensive and easy to install.
Don’t overfill the pool. Lower water levels will reduce water loss due to splashing.
Catch water in an empty tuna can to measure sprinkler output
3-4 cm of water is enough to apply each time you irrigate
Something that many might take for granted is becoming highly coveted: water. (Call 039) 685 5172, for water solutions
Conserve and harvest your rainwater. In fact, water has become more precious than gold. While the planet Earth is primarily covered in water, only 2.5% of it is fresh, and only a portion of that is drinkable
Over the past 10 years the S&P 500 Global Water index has outperformed the gold and energy indices
It’s the rainy season! Work safely on round ladder rungs in a muddy yard:
Mount a length of bar stock low on the ladder, then scrape mud off boot soles before climbing. Mount another rigid bar near the top of the ladder and you can scrape goop off putty knives and trowels.
To protect painted walls and other delicate surfaces when using a hammer to pull nails, wedge a putty knife beneath the tool’s claw, end.
Wood screws turn more easily in tight-fitting holes when threads are rubbed with a slightly wet bar of soap.
