How much water does your family use?
Latest studies carried out in 2015 now show that the average South African suburban family of 4 uses even more municipal water than previously thought:
= 300 litres per person per day (x 4 people)
=1200 litres per day (x 30 days)
=36,000 litres per month (x 12 months)
=432,000 litres per year

Understanding your water usage volumes
How much Greywater could you treat & re-use?
Similarly, the average South African suburban family of 4 creates the following volume of greywater from showers, baths and basins (not kitchen or laundry):
= 70 litres per person per day x 4
= 280 litres per day
= 8,400 litres per month
= 100,800 litres per year
Imagine treating this water to a very high level to store and then use again inside and outside the house instead of using municipal drinking water!
AQUALOOP waste water treatment system turns this greywater in clean, clear, bacteria-free, storable water that can be reused again within the house for a number of uses.
By saving rainwater and treating residential greywater, more South African families, businesses and even municipalities are:
- reducing their municipal water bills
- reducing their reliance on municipal water supply
- helping to save precious drinkable water "for actual drinking"
- & acting responsibly and in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner

Quick roof calculation
We take the length x width of your roof and multiply it by the long term climate mean annual rainfall for your area.
200m2 x 510mm (Cape Town mean average annual rainfall)
= 102,000 litres saved per year
300m2 x 1016mm (Durban mean average annual rainfall)
= 304,800 litres saved per year
This gives us the average number of litres of rainwater you could save & use annually.
We then work out your household water usage and determine how much tank storage capacity you need to effectively utilise the rainwater available throughout the year.
Imagine collecting and storing this water, for use back inside the house, saving precious drinking water, municipal charges and reducing your reliance on municipal water supply?
Now we dimemsion an INTEWA rainwater harvesting system designed for your household so you can takeadvantage of the free rainfall available to use instead of municipal water.
...and where do we use all this water?
