What a month it’s been for us, business has been steady and now we’re ready for that first hot day where the phones ring red hot with new sales as people find out just how thirsty they are for clean fresh water.
With the exception of three months, the monthly rain fall this year has exceeded last year’s. Even so, we’re still ten gigalitres short on last year’s total. With summer around the corner, it doesn’t look like we’ll make up the short fall.
The total capacity of our dams is still only at 33%. Surface water from our dams contributes 25 – 45% of the water for the Integrated Water Supply System (IWSS). Our other two water sources are groundwater, which contributes 35 – 50%, and desalination which contributes 15 – 20%. This means we will probably need to increase the amount drawn from the ground and this in turn will increase the amount of minerals in our drinking water, putting more pressure on filtrarion systems leading to an increase in the frequency of service and filter replacement. “You Either Use A Water Filter Or Your Body Is One.”
I can not thank Rohan Wallace enough for lodging the Trade Mark Registration for our treasured punch line. About two weeks later we got the news that the business name “West Coast Water Filter Man” has also been successfully lodged for Trade Mark Registration. Whoo Hooooy !!!!!!
Until next month, take care.
