Why is it important to save water in South Africa?
South Africa faces significant water challenges due to the combination of our rapidly growing population and increasingly unreliable rainfall patterns due to climate change. Indications are that demand for water will outstrip supply by 2025 with the Cape potentially facing a water shortage as early as 2015 and Gauteng around 2013.
Our water problem is further exacerbated by the fact that we live in a relatively dry country, with an average annual rainfall of about 464mm (compared to a world average of about 860mm).
That’s why saving water begins at home. Efficient rainwater-harvesting can meet up to 86% of your water needs, save money on your water bill and reduce your environmental impact. It will also reduce your dependence on a supply from rivers and groundwater resources – now under increasing demand from an increasing population whilst reducing your costs.
Is price important when purchasing a water storage tank? Of course it is but we all know that no price is a good price if we don’t like the quality! That’s why JoJo Tanks has been South Africa’s trusted industry leader in the manufacture of polyethylene liquid storage tanks for more than 30 years.
