    You can use sea water if you collect it deep enough to be free of "land pollution"
    A couple of tanks are run on sea water afaik.

    it safe to use if you are close enough to the sea to use it within a relatively short timespan. Keeping water at the same temperature and using it within a day maximum 2 then yes.
    Azaadville is in Randfontein? Depending on how much water you need, I doubt if it will be worthwhile the travel expenses.
