Cape Town hospital installs water filtration system

March 13, 2018

A Cape Town hospital has become the first private healthcare facility in the Western Cape to install a water filtration plant in compliance with the City of Cape Town’s regulations, according to an article on the ESI Africa website.

Life Vincent Pallotti Hospital, part of the Life Healthcare group, has commissioned an onsite water filtration plant. The project is part of an effort to reduce the facility’s demand on municipal water supply.

The water filtration plant treats contaminated water from a local aquifer.

“We had the water tested and found it had quite dangerous levels of iron, so we looked at the best way to treat it and the filtration plant came out as the best way to do it,” said Dr Japie Du Toit, regional hospital manager, Life Healthcare Western Cape.
