Our Story

Venus Water primarily provides consumers with solutions to problems encountered with drinking water. This site aims to provide information on Venus Water solutions, as well as a repository of information about water purification focusing on domestic water use in South Africa. Venus Water treatment furthermore provides customers with solutions to problems encountered with wine cellar effluent.

Agricultural & Industrial Water Conditioning

 

This division of our service mostly comprises of turnkey (design, install, and commission) projects for the agricultural and winery sectors in the Western Cape.

 

The following examples are typical of the types of water conditioning that we undertake:

 

  • Water stabilization with limestone contact.
  • Iron removal with oxidizing medium contact filters.
  • Disinfection with brominators.
  • Disinfection with ozone.
  • Disinfection with ultra-violet germicidal lamps.
  • Disinfection with electro kinetic barrier filters.
  • Disinfection with ultrafiltration.
  • Demineralisation with resin contact or reverse osmosis.
  • Ionisation to produce alkaline micro water.
  • Ionisation to produce super-oxidized water.
  • Sediment filtration with sand filters, multi-medium filters, disc filters, bag filters and pleated – and polypropylene cartridges.
  • De-chlorination with activated carbon or KDF filters.
  • Wine cellar effluent treatment with aeration techniques and constructed wetlands.
  • Safari water conditioners.
  • Bottled beverage filtration.
  • Production of distilled water, softened water, ozonated water, ionized water, demineralised water and mineralised water.

 

Applications vary over a wide range of water qualities. It is advisable to start with a water analysis in order to identify the conditioning process required to rectify problematic waters. Contact us for a free interpretation of your water sample laboratory analysis.

Water Stabilizing

Stabilized water is water that stands neutral towards contact with metals and minerals.

 

In contrast un-stabilized water dissolves metals and minerals, thereby causing corrosion of these metals.  This action impacts on maintenance cost on copper plumbing pipes and hot water geysers.  Such water is referred to as soft water.

 

Over saturated water on the other hand tends to form scaling deposits onto metal pipes and heated water surfaces.  This is referred to as hard water.

 

Our Western Cape bore hole water sources are almost always corrosive with low pH values, low calcium concentrations and low alkalinity.

 

In practice there are various indexes that are used to determine and assess the measure of a corrosive water sample.

 

It is advisable to stabilize sub-surface water before it is supplied to homesteads to reduce expensive maintenance cost to copper plumbing.  Furthermore the dissolved copper is also not healthy for humans to consume.  Tell tale indications of this problem would be blue green marks on white sanitary ware in bathrooms and kitchens.

 

Venus Water Treatment offers a service for analyzing  water samples to detect this problem and to assess the severity of the problem by using a software program that can quantify remedial actions required.

 

By for instance contacting the raw water with calcium cations in a CaCO3 column, a cost effective method is used to rectify this problem.
