Tectum Aqua company promotes water saving systems to the household. The company name is translates to “Roof Water” and distributes quality assembled water saving devices to the public. I source products from a reputable Cape Town based Company.
It is our vision to help the home owner become independent of municipal water supply, to be prepared for water shedding/unexpected water cuts and to help save our scares water resource.
- Grey Water System
This is a garden irrigator that automatically channels water from washing machines, shower, bath and faucets to the garden at regular intervals to prevent storage of grey water.
- Rain Water Harvesting Systems
That range from a simple gutter connection point to water tank to fully automated system that collects filtered rain water and channels this into the house with municipal water backup.
- Swimming Pool Backwash Recycler
That saves the home owner water and prevents backwash water from illegally entering the storm water drains.
- Mini Eco Pool
Although still experimental, we build 10, 20 and 30000 l mini eco pools that operate off low wattage pump and UV sterilizer that allow for crystal clear water all year round WITHOUT the use off any chemicals.
Grey Water Information
A household can typically save 6 months of water and more from their roofs which means:
- A nice monetary saving is made
- Less water is sourced from the municipality which reduces stress on our scares water resource
- The household lives “greener” resulting in a reduced carbon footprint
Should the harvesting of rain water spread to more households, this will result in the creation of a dam of water that will grow larger as more households join. The net effect is a large saving of water and a much reduced dependency on South Africa’s scares water resource.
Add a grey water system and each household can add another 2 months or more of yearly savings in water!
