We make clean, safe water available to communities in need.
Aquadam has taken hands with Kusini Water to tackle the very real and dire need for clean water at schools and community centers around South Africa.
OVER 6 MILLION PEOPLE LACK ACCESS TO SAFE, CLEAN WATER IN SOUTH AFRICA
Currently 1 out of 3 schools in South Africa do not have access to safe clean drinking water and clean sanitation. This problem affect the most vulnerable of our society, being school going children aged 6 – 18 years who are most at risk of sickness from waterborne diseases and the danger of unsafe sanitation.
Utilizing water storage tanks provided by Aquadam, the Kusini Water treatment system uses nanotechnology and macadamia nut shells, to form a workable, life giving solution that provides great tasting water. These solutions bring clean, safe drinking water to people in rural, peri-urban and informal settlements throughout the African continent. The Aquadam water tanks which form an integral part of the system. By providing the tanks Aquadam is ensuring that more systems can be rolled out to more schools to address this dire need.
The Filter used removes 99.9999% of disease causing bacteria & parasites from any water source. The Filter is comprised of a mechanical nano-filter with an activated carbon block in the centre. That means it physically separates particles from water by trapping them inside the membrane. Because the filter uses a mechanical filtration process, the Filter remains safe throughout the entire life of the filter.
ACTIVATED CARBON MACADAMIA NUTSHELL FILTER
A two-stage filtration process is used; In addition to the nano-fiber membrane, an actived carbon block made from locally sourced macadamia nut shells is used to absorb chemicals like chlorine and pesticides.
NANO-FIBRE MEMBRANE WITH MACADAMIA NUTSHELL FILTER
The nano-fiber membranes have 0,01micron pores that trap contaminants on one side and release clean water on the other end. The latest technology in membrane production with minimum chemicals is used.
The Aquadam water tanks form an integral part of the system as both raw water and potable water needs to be stored at some of the sites.
THE KUSINI SMART METER
All our filtration systems are monitored and controlled using a smart water meter that is IOT (Internet of Things) enabled. This allows us to know the state of each site so we can keep water flowing at all times. This device allows us to monitor and operate our systems remotely and carry out maintenance as needed.
What gets filtered.
E-coli, bacteria and things such as dissolved solids are bigger than the pores in our filter. Clean Water is able to pass through, but contaminants larger than 0.01 microns remain trapped, leaving water clean and disease free.
How you can help.
One of the best ways to create an impact and support communities is to sponsor Kusini Water Treatment Sites around South Africa. A Water treatment site not only provides clean water, it also creates job opportunities in the communities we install them in. We challenge companies who are active in the water services industry and call on interested individuals who want to make a real difference to get involved with this exciting, life enhancing project to uplift our children.
South Africa is experiencing one of its worst water crisis’ on record, and people in rural communities, especially children, are dying daily due to insufficient and unreliable access to safe, effective water and sanitation. Every time you contribute you become a hero to one of the many community projects that Kusini and Aquadam are involved in – we take hands to change the lives of marginalised communities.
YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS ARE THE HEROES WITH THE POWER TO BRING WATER TO COMMUNITIES IN NEED
This is achieved through your involvement and contributions that enables us to install water filter systems and water storage tanks in communities that lack access to safe water. The solutions are easy to install and maintain, and doesn’t need electricity to run. This makes them ideal for the communities that we’re trying to help. Contact Aquadam to get involved, whether it is in the provision of supplies needed or logistical assistance to help us roll out the water treatment solutions quicker to the projects.
