Water 101

 Where we find ourselves

Whether you are ready to purchase a borehole or have just started considering the option of a borehole, we can all agree why it's on our radar. Domestic water use constitues a major part of urban water demand and has, across the globe, gained more importance in terms of the sustainability of urban water supply.  The effects of our recent severe drough has motivated the people of South Africa's (especially Cape Town) to be better prepared and more knowledgeable as we move through the drier and hotter predicted future for South Africa.

Things we have learnt

Homeowners have implemented behavioural changes such as water use reduction strategies implemented through educational campaigns (these only work with receptive people), water saving fixtures, e.g. eco shower heads and technological implementations such as metered households and water use monitors etc. have influenced individual water use decisions and changes in user practices and daily habits alone have shown that the total water consumptions levels can be significantly influenced.

Continuing uncertaintity

The available water supply in urban areas, especially, is facing drastic declines in quantity and its quality, including fears over maintaining failing infrastructure. Whilst the water services industry is re-engineering itself to better understand supply and demand in this changing environment, it could be some time until we have well developed urban water conservation strategies and policies.

What does this mean for the consumer?

At the consumer level these issues are very real and, as in Cape Town, as we celebrate the glorious recent rains, a sign of the times where the now new norm is being thankful when it rains.  With this information at hand, one must consider carefully how investing in a borehole versus not doing so will impact you and your families life moving into the future.
