Our company recently installed a backup water system at a customer in Berea, Durban. Attached to the system he requested that we add a water filtration and purification unit.
Six months after the installation we were advised by our customer that the system was not working. On inspection of the system we found that the filters were blocked, which was a major surprise to us as this was not normal for municipal water. See Photo below
In unfiltered water this high iron and soil sediment would have been freely available for drinking consumption. The customer was seriousley concerned when he saw what came out of the filters and requested an anlaysis of the municpal water.
We have sent water sample to a water laboratory and await the results.
