Imagine being able to turn on the tap, fill a glass and drink the water. Simple and easy – without worrying about buying expensive bottled water or risking waterborne spread diseases. Aqua Unique makes it possible for people living in Africa to enjoy effortless drinking water. We have designed a product line for people who want clean and safe water for their families and children.
For houses not connected to the sewer grid a responsibility is relied on its owners to ensure that the discharged wastewater meets the national parameters. Until now the solution has been constructing a septic tank, but that solution could be ended soon by NEMA.
Aqua Unique has many years of experience in delivering custom build solutions for domestic houses. We are aware and acknowledge the occasional infrastructural issues there by living in Africa. Overflowing sewers, inconsistent water supply etc are issues we might get used to, but surely would prefer to live without. Aqua Unique has the solutions for a better and healthier life.
We design our systems around being cost beneficial to your already built or new house. Our water purification technologies ensure you and your family live safely in terms of the water you use. Our wastewater treatment technologies guarantee that you meet the national parameters for discharged wastewater by miles. As a sidekick treated wastewater can offer your family huge savings from having to purchase water as it can manageable be recycled (read purified) and used again for your family usage. Alternative treated wastewater water can be used free of charge to irrigate your gardens – either through a simple tap system or a more sophisticated piped irrigation system.
Water for tea and coffee
Did you know that it is recommended boiling the water for tea and coffee for over 20 minutes to kill all bacteria and viruses? Even if you do that – you can still end up with chemical contaminated water as boiling doesn’t remove chemicals at all.
There exist a number of different water purification technologies applicable to a domestic house. But if we generalize – the choice really comes down to one technology.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is generally considered as the safest water purification technology for drinking water. The system shall be combined with pre-filtration and post UV-disinfection (UV-C). Reverse Osmosis systems are delivered in a wide range of sizes – with a purified water production from 1.1m3 to +100,000m3 per day. You can surely find providers offering small particles filters or even smaller Reverse Osmosis plants, but believe us – they are not safe and will breakdown after a few months of use.
A Reverse Osmosis water purification plant removes particles, bacteria, parasites, viruses, contaminants, salts, heavy metals, colour, odour and taste from the source water.
For a new house (yet to be constructed) our innovative solutions include water separation where the water is split into two levels. One level will be multi-usage water for cleaning, washing and toilet use while the second line is pure drinking water for food preparation, bathroom sinks and drinking water. This is a very efficient way to save capital investment cost as well later running cost.
Multi-usage water line. Water will be treated by pre media filters and environmental friendly UV disinfection ensuring protection against waterborne spread diseases. Water pipes will be protected against precipitation/scaling.
Pure drinking water line. Water will be purified by pre media filters, Reverse Osmosis technology in combination with environmental friendly extended UV disinfection.
This solution can also be applied to existing facilities, but can as such include more serious water network renovation work.

Our innovative wastewater plants are environmental friendly using only a biological driven technology called SBR (Sequencing Batch Reactor). The process is driven by air which pushes the wastewater from the receiving buffer tank to the treatment tank where the biological aeration phase takes place. Operating the treatment system without any pumps reduces the risks of fault tremendously.
Simple and easy
Aqua Unique’s wastewater systems are delivered fully equipped and ready for installation. On location, only the outer tanks need to be constructed. Connect the pipes and power, and the system is in operation.
Extremely low power consumption
The systems are designed that no pump is required. The only power consumption is for a compressor blowing air into the treatment process. As an example a treatment plant handling the wastewater for up to 10 people (1,5m3 per day) only consumes 86 watt for 9 hours a day making it possible to run it of a small solar system. A plant of that size also only takes up the space equally to 1/6 of a 20 foot container.
High treatment efficiency
The parameters of treated water meet the national discharge parameters without any problems. Purification effect of SBR technology is very high and it is in range of 90 to 97%, (BOD5 ca. 97 %, COD ca. 95 %, SS ca. 96 %, N-NH4 ca. 90 %).
Wastewater treatment for your own benefits
As a sidekick treated wastewater can offer your family huge savings from having to purchase water as it can manageable be recycled (read purified) and used again for your operation. Alternatively treated wastewater water can be used free of charge to irrigate your gardens – either through a simple tap system or a more sophisticated piped irrigation system.
