    Hi, the seawater at UShaka is fine, we have been using it for years. The procedures change all the time, last we heard it was R750.00 per year, you had to go after 5pm, you could only have so much (not sure of the amount) and you could only go once a week. Best to phone them and check all the new rules and regs, cheers Anita

    Why don't you just get salt and mix with R.O - less of a pain to carry water.

    Why don't you just collect water from the sea? Is there no one in durban that delivers nsw like we have here in PE?
