Project Overview

1

OBJECTIVE

To measure effluent volumes, measure demand volumes, reduce consumption, introduce alternative sources, storage and filtration and provide water backup.

2

SOLUTION

Electronic monitoring of effluent and demand volumes. Rainwater harvesting system and borehole optimisation. Storage, reticulation and filtration installed

3

RESULTS

Effluent calculation reduced from a billed 95% of total demand to a measured 11%. Leaks were identified and rectified and all toilets at the winery, bistro, restaurant, hotel and spa converted to InfintyFLUSH units to reduce demand. The whole roof of the winery and bistro were connected to the underground water tanks for rainwater harvesting. Borehole water were added along with council supply. The second phase included the restaurant and spa, with surface tanks, filtration and reticulation pump, providing clean water on demand, with a purification plant running 24hrs a day.

they want to help you save water and money

The approach is clear, they want to help you save water and money by designing and implementing a simple system that does not cost an arm and a leg to set up.

The team from AQUAffection has really gone above and beyond for us. From the first step to install smart water meters and loggers to know and understand the usage of site up to the installation and commissioning of the system.

The daily reports have saved us a huge amount of water and ultimately money as well. From the smallest thing, like a toilet leaking in the hotel or restaurants or massive leaks in main lines are now picked up and dealt with in under 24 hours.

We have been running the site on the AQUAffection system for over a year now, and I still get early morning emails or phone calls if anything is out of the ordinary, plus massive savings on our water bill and no more water outages thanks to the backup systems.
