Water Conservation


Save water while living sustainably, and maintaining your lifestyle. One lives normally, and uses less than half of the volume used without our products.
The resultant reduction of the value paid for water is 90% for water and sewerage. Let us be sure what this is – that one pays only 10% of the Rand value for water and sewerage after installation.
Very often the free monthly allocation of 6 kilolitres made to households is sufficient.

Greywater Recycling

  • > Garden Rhapsody

    • A way to re-use Grey Water for irrigation purposes: Grey water is defined as water from baths showers hand basins and the laundry. The excellent quality water is never stored, but used immediately. The water is pumped to sprinkle under low pressure an area of 30 square metres of garden area. Provided that one uses a phosphate free washing liquid / powder, grey water is perfectly safe for all plants in a garden.


  • > Water Rhapsody Second Movement

    • The re-use of grey water for toilet flushing: There is sufficient grey water of only one of two possible uses. It is not possible to re-use grey water for both irrigation as well as toilet flushing. If one does not have a garden to irrigate, then grey water for toilet flushing is sensible and very useful to reduce demand for water which achieves an immediate and categori cal reduction for water and sewerage disposal of 50%. How this historically most reliable system works is:

      • Grey water is treated to reduce or prevent anaerobic growth and keeps a pump chamber filled.

      • The grey water is pumped into a toilet pan by pushing on a 12-volt bell push switch:

      • The bell push closes a 220-volt relay to initiate the pump, and when the flushing is done, and bell push released the flushing stops.

Toilet Flushing Mechanism

  • > Water Rhapsody Multi-Flush

    • This device sounds too simple to make a big difference but it does! UCT reduced their water use by 90% by installing only this device. How it works: you flush normally, but as soon as you release the flushing handle / button, the flushing stops. This gives you the control to use the least possible water to flush your own creation from the pan into the sewer. One can domestically expect a reduction of water use of 20%, and in commercial premises – 90%. One cannot do better than that.

Pool Solutions

  • > Water Rhapsody Poolside Tank

    • The re-use of pool backwash water from a sand filter: You return crystal clear water from a 500 litre poolside tank after 24 hours. This is not magic, but every drop of backwash water is re-used.


  • > Water Rhapsody Poolside Drum

    • The same as the Poolside Tank, only designed for smaller volume pools by using a 200 litre Drum.

Rainwater Harvesting

You be the primary water supplier with the Water Rhapsody Grand Opus. Rainwater harvesting; water stored in water tanks; pumped to selected places or even the whole household during the rainy season: means to have constant supply during outages.
This system has for very good reasons become the spear head of all the systems Water Rhapsody installs. All our systems pay for themselves in a short term given the new higher water tariffs which are in turn thanks to water scarcity. With this system you beat both water outages and expensive tariffs.

How it works:

  • We collect water from each and every downpipe around you premises. This water is piped in an underground pipe from the building to water tanks remote from the dwelling.

  • Water is stored in tanks the size of which is determined by us depending on all factors
    e.g. parameters of rainfall in the area, how many square metres of roof area you have, number of people in the house requiring water etc.

  • Pump: because the tanks are at ground level, we need to pump the water to pressurize the precious stuff.

  • Filter the water to potable quality.

These products allow affordability through a combination of the above to provide a tailor-made solution for your premises:

    Rainwater Harvesting for Flushing

  • Rainwater Harvesting for Laundry

    Harvest water from the largest roof area through a single Water Rhapsody Rain Runner. Direct the harvested water via an underground pipe to fill a 2,500-liter cylindrical tank positioned in an out-of-sight area of your property. Receive and pump this stored water to one of three uses – laundry, pool or garden tap. A municipal supply to a ball-float-valve a third of the way up the tank will ensure water supply at all times.

  • Rainwater Harvesting for Households

    Harvest water from the largest roof area through four Rain Runners. Direct the harvested water via an underground pipe to fill a 5,000-liter cylindrical tank positioned in an out-of-sight area of your property. Receive and pump this stored water to supply the whole household. A municipal supply to a ball-float-valve a third of the way up the tank will ensure water supply at all times. A separate municipal supply to the kitchen provides potable water for drinking and cooking.

  • Rainwater Harvesting for Drinking

    Harvest water from the largest roof area through four Rain Runners. Direct the harvested water via an underground pipe to fill a 5,000-liter cylindrical tank positioned in an out-of-sight area of your property. Receive and pump this stored water through a 5-stage filtration system to supply the whole household with potable water. A municipal supply to a ball-float-valve a third of the way up the tank will ensure water supply at all times.

  • Rainwater Harvesting for Flushing

    The development of hidden yet popular toilet cisterns has attracted many people to install such flushing devices. Taken with the aesthetic value of seeing only a tiled area behind the toilet pan, But they fail to realize what the repercussions of servicing a cistern like that. Water Rhapsody therefore have developed a hybrid system that places all the workings outside of the house, with only a hidden pipe to introduce water to the pan for flushing, and an unobtrusive bell push to initiate flushing. The source of the water introduced to this system is to your choice. This can be rainwater harvested from roof areas or municipal or even a combination of both. The advantages of such a system are that this is as or more aesthetically pleasing, through easy access is no problem to maintain, uses little or no water from the municipality, but provides indemnity against water outages. This means that one is still able to use twenty or more flushes during water outages.

Energy Solutions


Solar Energy for hot water and/or refrigeration

Batteries to store energy are either expensive, unreliable but do not last. We therefore suggest that free batteries supplied by us in combination with our solar equipment are used to store energy in the form of heat and cold respectively. Hot water is obviously stored in your hot water cylinder, and the stored cold water in plastic saline bottles that alternate between deep freeze and fridge during daytime (sunny times) and night times.

Our systems are built up from the most reliable sources and incorporate

  • > 17K Energy Solution

    • This is the very best money for value solution: it comprises three 250 watt solar panels, plugged into a new element in your existing hot water cylinder. This being the base level does not come with a controller so temperatures may reach 75 degrees of hot water in you r cylinder from solar alone. A second electrical connection to the element switched manually will ensure that you may have hot water on demand from a Municipal / Eskom supply.

      On average savings of energy should amount to 6 kilowatt hours per day.


  • > 29K Energy Solution

    • Everything in the 17K solution with automation: this would include a display somewhere in your house, a control box to switch both the solar power as well as the municipal power on and off, and an MPPT (Maximum Power Point) unit that controls the solar power, and will dump energy into batteries. Batteries are not included in this price.


  • > 49K Energy Solution

    • Everything in either the 17K or 29K solution but with power to drive a refrigerator / freezer: Whether you wish to regulate your hot water cylinder manually or automatically will have a difference on the price. The rest of your installation would require more panels and an MPPT to regulate the voltage into some batteries, and an inverter (turns DC current into AC) to connect to the fridge. So far you should have brought down remarkably and into a different block tariff helping still more to make the Rand for your kilowatt hour go so much further.
