We consider how the water treatment equipment can be designed to integrate with other on-site infrastructure such as tanks, pipes and filters to maximise output for multiple purposes (for example livestock, crops, gardens or people).

We also consider strategies to reduce power consumption to create and optimise system efficiencies.

We then design, manufacture and install the system along with providing training and ongoing maintenance and consulting services.

Step 1 - test

In most cases the requirement is to convert unusable lake or bore water into drinking or homestead water. The first essential step is conducting a water test to inform specific design requirements.

Step 2 - design

Equipment and plant design is a highly specialised field. It can incorporate filters and bypasses to accommodate different salinity levels for varied use.

We consider how each client can minimise power costs and by-product waste within the overall design hierarchy.

Step 3 - proposal

Following collaboration with you, we refine the solution and put together a proposal including design drawings, technical explanations, product components, shipping options and pricing.

Step 4 - build

Upon agreement to proceed and receipt of a purchase order, we initiate procurement where necessary and begin the build, keeping you updated.

It’s likely that during this phase you will be preparing your property for delivery of the system and connections to existing infrastructure.

Step 5 - install

The Rowater team is usually on site for the equipment installation, taking the opportunity to conduct training for simple maintenance tasks.

An exciting moment is when everyone fills their glasses to taste the clean, pure water!

Step 6 - maintain

The equipment is built to be in use for decades. Rowater offers annual maintenance services to ensure the long life of your system and continued water quality.

Pro-active monitoring also occurs via RO-FIT, Rowater's in-house-designed Internet monitoring software which is installed on the equipment.

On-farm Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme

Rebates are available for on-farm water infrastructure expenses to assist primary producers and horticulture farmers in drought-affected areas. There were a total of $50 million in rebates made available in 2018, with an additional $50 million in 2020. To determine your eligibility, click the logo at right.

Rowater’s proprietary software, RO-FIT, is of great value to regional property owners because it monitors the health of the equipment in real time, providing dashboard visibility and remote control access. Whether you are in a far corner of your property or on a trip to the city, you'll be able to view and control your system from your phone or laptop.
