    Hi,

    Was wondering if people in Durban and surroundings would use the services of water delivery.

    just an Idea a mate and myself where throwing around.

    A few questions I have.

    1-- Would you make use of such a Service
    2-- Would delivery on the weekend or after hours be suitable?
    3-- How much would you expect to pay for such service say for 25L, 50L, 100L.?
    4-- Would you take salt and RO water?
    5 -- What quantities would you take for salt and RO?
    6 -- Would you use the service knowing the salt water came straight out the ocean(not mixed)

    Please help me out by completing if you are interested.
    Dont really know where to post this so thought I would start in the general section.

    More a question as where you will collect your salt water.

    I do believe there can be a need for such a service. But your quality needs to be perfect else guys will be upset.

    Think its a good idea but doubt if people would pay the extra money for delivery.

    I would definitely use such a service.

    Remember if the water is from the ocean then you basically only paying for the transport.

    Interesting concept. It would have to work out a lot cheaper than mixed salt though.

    I would use such a service. Stay in Morningside but routine doesn't work out in terms of water changes as it needs to. Price point would need to be around R50 per litre. Would take 50L every two weeks. Weekends preferred. NSW all the way but quality needs to be excellent.
