The Boatyard makes a water plan!

Published October 2017 by Weslander

Nollies van der Merwe, owner of The Boat Yard in Club
Mykonos, said he managed to gather 15000 litres of water within 32 minutes in
his new water tanks on Monday morning 25 September due to run-off water after
the rain. It cost him R4000 to install the tanks (they cost R15000). For the
past nine days he was able to use only water from these tanks to wash all the
boats in The Boat Yard and their engines. Afterwards he filters the water and
re-uses it. He is in the process of buying four more 10000 litre tanks. Do you
have a clever plan how to save water? Please share it with us on and
