Backup Water Systems
With the ever-increasing likelihood of water restrictions and poor maintenance of our water infrastructure, water cuts and shortages are becoming an everyday norm affecting business and households alike.
Some facilities like hospitals, schools, old age homes and industries where water is part of the process can’t go without water during any part of the day.
Businesses are also under pressure to supply water for staff and is especially important for the ablution facilities as well as fire backup systems. A water cut can result in the loss of production for a company as they often send staff home.
- 2- 4 days water back up in the event of water interruptions.
- Booster pump provides pressurised uninterrupted water supply.
- Holding tank sized to provide water for 2 – 4 days supply.
- Piping valves and installation.
- Quality filtration system if required.
- Pressure reducers and valves included in installation.
Plastic holding tanks available in capacities from 200 to 27000 liters.
