However, it is essential you have your water tested to make sure it is potable (safe to drink).
In any situation where the public is likely to drink water from your water supply, we suggest that you install UV sterilisation in order to demonstrate that you have taken all possible steps to eliminate the risks.
- Locate boreholes away from any obvious potential sources of contamination such as septic tanks and fuel tanks.
- Keep rubbish, pesticides, fertilizers, animals and compost away from the borehole.
- Remove and dispose of waste materials at approved facilities.
- Apply garden fertilizers and agricultural chemicals sparingly, following label instructions.
- Clean up any chemical spills immediately
- Lock access to bore covers or sheds
- Maintain borehole pumping equipment
- Use a backflow prevention device to separate municipal water from bore water
Yes, you can link your borehole to your existing irrigation system provided the water volume suffices to operate the irrigation system – should this not be the case, various options are available to rectify this.
Each client’s particular needs will be assessed and recommendations made.
Yes it can be connected BUT note:
- A backflow prevention device must be fitted otherwise you could end up pumping your water into the municipal water line and visa-versa
- Any connection to the scheme supply must be done by a licensed plumber; and
- The water must be tested prior to using it as drinking water or for food preparation.
If you will only use your borehole for domestic purposes (garden & household use) then no approval is required.
If the water will be used in a manufacturing process (such as making soft drinks) and farming then it will require registration. (see question below)
If you will only use your borehole for domestic purposes (garden & household use) then no registration is required.
If the water will be used in a specific manufacturing process, such as making soft drinks or bottling water, then you will require registration with your local municipality. If you are uncertain if this applies to you we are happy to assist with the registration process.
