Who we are

Aqualiz is a proudly South African company that is in the water business to provide South Africans with affordable quality water that is suitable for businesses, schools, homes and more. Our water goes through rigorous purification methods to obtain an improved quality drinking water. These further purification methods include reverse osmosis, Ultraviolet sterilization and Ozonation which ensure the production of the cleanest and healthiest drinking water.

How safe is our public (tap) water ?

Many urban residents have access to improved drinking water sources mostly public (Tap) water system which is largely treated with chlorine and ammonia to prevent growth of germs. The presence of these chemicals can cause a distinct taste to water. In addition to these chemicals being present, public water system can also be largely polluted by rusts from either public infrastructure or residence water pipes, muds from pipe bursts or during pipe maintenance and other contaminants.

AquaLiz can assist you with testing your drinking water at homes or offices and gives you assurance about your drinking water (if you feel the water is not safe).

How Does AquaLiz Makes Drinking Water Safer ?

AquaLiz complements our public drinking (tap) water infrastructure to ensure that safer water quality is available to South Africans. All our water including bottled water undergoes seven purification and filtration stages including Sand Filtration, Elements Filtration, Reverse Osmosis, Activated Carbon Filtration, Ozonation and UV treatment.

Pre-Filtration Stages   

Stage 1: Sand Filtration

 

A crystalline silica removes suspended solids, organic matter, colloidal particles, microorganisms, chlorine, odour and some heavy metal ions e.g. rusts

 

Stage 2: Granular Activated Carbon Filtration

 

Removes organic chemicals, chlorine, lead, detergents, pesticides, and volatile organic chemicals even paint & thinners.

 

Stage 3: Ultrafine Sediment filtration

 

Filters that remove particles as little as ≤5 micron such as solids particles, dirt, rust, sand and silt and other particles

 

Filtration Stage

Stage 4: Reverse Osmosis

 

The key process of purification that removes any remaining particles including dissolved salts (ions), colloids, organics, bacteria and pyrogens by pushing the water through semi permeable membrane using high pressure pump

 

Post Filtration Stage

Stage 5: Activated Carbon Block

 

Removes odour and bad taste and improves tastes

 

Stage 6: UV light

 

The effective way to kill micro-organisms including bacteria, fungus, pathogens by attacking their genetic core (DNA)

 

Stage 7: Ozonation

 

The final process that injects oxygen (ozone) gas into water and kills any remaining micro-organism (bacteria, viruses and cysts), removes odour and taste and enhances disinfection

 

In addition, Bottles are washed, cleaned and sanitised before they are being refilled to meet our customers expectation. Ozone water is used to sanitise the bottles before being filled with water. AquaLiz water is microbiologically tested for every 3-6 months at SANAS approved laboratory keeping Water Quality Standard.

Choosing AquaLiz is choosing water free of parasites, bacteria and contaminants  

Facts About Water 

 

Water Composition in Humans 

Our human body is made up of more than 50% of water. The water quantity in the body varies with age, the highest in children, followed by adult and then the elderly. Women have less water quantity than men. In essence, our major organs are comprises of the following water percentages; the brain and heart have about 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys, 79%, and while the bones are 31% water.

 

Keep Body Organs Functioning 

This is to say, that our body and major organs contain more water, does not mean that they produce water inside them, no we are the ones to hydrate the organs, we are ones to drink water to enable them do their work in the body.

 

What Quantity of Water is Needed? 

Humans drink certain quantity of water to survive. And this water consumption depends on the age and sex. An adult male need about 3 litres per day compare to an adult female with about 2.2 litres per day. It is important to note that some water can also come from the food we eat.

 

Drinking Safe Water

It is agreeable that water is needed in our body to keep it functioning. It is also agreeable that food contains some quantity of water. It is agreeable that we should drink safe (uncontaminated) water as required for our body to function. South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) defined the Safe Drinking Water as water that conforms to South African National Standard (SANS) 241: 2015.
