I have installed two black water systems on recent projects, and will specifiy same on all project going forward. In my view its an absolute must have, especially in the western cape.
The Lilliput system was installed at the WWF offices in Braamfontein, and has had varying success. Plant failure occured when the client failed to do any routine maintenance for over 6 months. These systems are only as good as the team looking after them, and even though there are maintenance contracts and/or service level agreements signed with the suppliers, id the FM team dont know how to look after the sytem or identfy possible problems early, then the system will not function correctly.
Current commissioning a HWT system at the Department of Water & Sanitation’s offices in Voortrekker Rd.
Happy to show everyone around next year 1st quarter. Its a 48kL system and will be treating all efluent to supply the artificail wetland and formal irrigation system.
