Competition in water conservation

August 13, 2010

The rapid growing awareness of “green” issues around Cape Town has given rise to hopeful “experts” are entering the water conservation scene. They seem to be crawling out from the woodwork but this is not the first nor do I think this will be the last time hopeful entrepreneurs will be entering the market.

Six years ago when Capetonians were in the grips of the Cape drought cycle the same phenomena occurred.  Many new companies claiming to be experts in the field of water conservation cropped up. Very few survived beyond the initial need to conserve water in the high of the drought cycle.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Water Rhapsody

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Water Rhapsody is a name that popularised household water conservation (greywater and rainwater systems) with over 3000 installations to date around the Greater Cape Town area. Over the 17 years that Water Rhapsody has been serving the community we have been called in to replace many a system installed by our competition. Our systems have been installed for prominent figure (Professor Kader Asmal) and at institutions like the University of Cape Town and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Historically Cape Town enters a drought season every six years and this years is proving to be no exception. In the height of 2004 water restriction, Water Rhapsody had a 6 week backlog of clients desperately wanting to protect their gardens from near extinction.

With summer well on its way and showing signs of water scarcity, new “experts” are crawling out the woodwork. You get to choose Water Rhapsody or the competition. You’ll be exempt from water restrictions while the industry leader, Water Rhapsody will still be there offering you support and peace of mind knowing that your system will work for many years to come.
