    lol.....i new this would get your attention....but this is not what i wanted to show you.
    however this little guy i caught on the weekend on twini ledges.
    water conditions were not great but we charted a boat to fish and dive with some friends. also got 4 goldies and a bean.
    gem is eating ocean nutrician like a pig!:p

    anyway....what i wanted to show you
    this is a 3000 litre per hour r.o.unit that we are busy assebling to transport up to pretoria.

    this baby takes 12 large membranes (2 per housing)
    the pre-filtration plant takes 300kg of sand, 280 kg's of maxi zorb carbon and the water softner takes 200 litres of resin.

    the water then passes a mineral infection dosing system and is then stored in a 17000 litre tank with ozone gas before being delivered to the bottling line.

    we have commisioned 3 of these plants already for a company belonging to bidvest.
    we will be up in pretoria for 2 weeks in may to install this baby asell as meet with gauteng / pretoria lfs stores to launch our new range of marine r.o.units with 3 new patents.....watch this space as the waterboy evolution range have now be revolutionised to deliver again and again at minimal cost:yeahdude:

    we are also meting with bidvest to discuss a project we may run in gauteng which will be benifitial to the marine trade....and will be a first for south africa.....watch this space:thumbup:

    i'll be staying in anlin / zambesi.
    the plant is being installed in silverton or silverglen
    will confirm once at the office on monday


    i will be there for 1 to 2 weeks depending on how smooth the installation and commisioning goes.

    the last 2 we installed took us 4 days to set up

    so good idea to just stick with your customised waterboy reefmaster with the endless supply of pre-filters you have for that shitty ballito water:)
