Water Saving


Conserving water not only has an enormous effect on the environment and the ongoing shortage of water in South Africa, but it can also save you a significant amount of money as you consume and thereby heat less water each year. Our range of water conservation products includes everything from water saving shower heads to entire DIY water recycling kits. Check out our range of Water Conservation products below and do not hesitate to Contact Us with any questions you might have.


Water Conservation

Water conservation is particularly important in South Africa, where not everyone has easy access to clean drinking water and where the installation of one tap in an informal settlement is considered an achievement. Part of the battle to provide clean drinking water for all South African citizens is to balance the needs for sustainable and responsible water use with the needs of a growing urban population and the pressures on existing water systems.


Sustainable.co.za stocks a range of products and equipment to aid residential and commercial efforts to conserve water. From water conserving shower heads and low-flush toilet products to organic composters and garden/agriculture products that lend to the natural conservation of water, we have the products and equipment necessary to make conserving water as easy as possible.


Repairing leaking taps and pipes is one of the easiest methods to conserve water in and around the home, another water conservation tip is to teach children to switch off taps when they brush their teeth or wash their faces. By educating kids about the importance of water conservation early on you can create water saving advocates for the future.


For more advice on water conservation products, and tips on ways to conserve water in your household, contact Sustainable.co.za. We are a treasure trove of little known water conservation facts and have all the equipment necessary for you to implement easy conservation measures at home, in your garden and even at work.



Cape Town Dam Levels

Anyone taking a closer look at Cape Town dam levels will come to realise the urgency of the current water situation. From the data below it's clear that the city's demand has grown too large for the current water reserves. Even if crisis doesn't strike this year, 2018 will see the city in a major predicament as winter rainfall on average replenish storage by 30-40% but every year usage takes up to 60%.
