Stonehurst Borehole Water Supply – LEGAL CONNECTION

Once your borehole connection to a meter has been completed by the Estate’s contractor, it is then your responsibility to make the connection from that meter to your irrigation or, if you elect to do so, to provide an alternative water supply into your home.

Below is a document describing an inexpensive way of ensuring a legal connection between the Estate water supply, your home and the municipal supply, where you are able to swap between supplies without contaminating either supply with the other.

You could also use a Backflow Preventor on the municipal supply to ensure legal compliance with the municipality by-laws, but this option is quite costly, whereas the option below should be under R1000.

All connections to the Estate water supply must be signed off by Estate Management and must comply with the principles below.There is also information regarding the installation of water storage tanks.
