Scarab at Verloren Estate

You wont find many successes of . . . . .

. . . . our achievements in the public domain . .  until now. We were just happy, doing our thing, without any fuss. Quietly keeping clients happy, the environment safe and their groundwater clean.

We often felt that we don't need to brag about how successful we are, and we haven't. It is only times like this that we consolidate our past efforts, to fully view what we have achieved. And proudly so.

A great example is Verloren - an upmarket Game Estate, about halfway between Bela Bela and Modimolle, in Limpopo province.


"Verloren Eco-Estate in Bela Bela, South Africa, is a stunning locale known for its eco-friendly living and serene surroundings. It's a testament to sustainable development, emphasizing harmony with nature while providing a high-quality lifestyle. From bushveld landscapes to innovative architectural designs, promotes eco-conscious living without compromising comfort."


It's heartening to see such initiatives, especially in the vision of real estate, embracing sustainable practices. It's crucial for developments to correctly evaluate environmental responsibility, not just for the present but for future generations. Initiatives like these inspire others to reconsider their impact on the environment in their own lives and endeavors.


Verloren and Scarab

The Verloren estate is delicately placed on 88 hectares, and one dwelling has no sight of the next. Wild game roam freely on the property, and the developers were particularly concerned about the negative human factor on the environment. Once our sewage system technology had established a reputation here, the the developers specified our wastewater treatment solutions exclusively for all new homes.  Over a period of about 4 years, 40 systems have been installed on the properties of individual home owners. A clear endorsement of the product.


Water Saving and reuse - 80 000 litres daily

All water for the Verloren estate comes from several boreholes, and there is a concerted effort to promote rain-water harvesting. On average, there is 80 000 litres of recycled wastewater produced every day, which is "refreshed" and used for a variety of secondary purposes, including pool filling, gardens, washing cars and discharge directly into the environment. The area is quite dry during the winter season, and the recycled sewage / wastewater from our systems are welcomed by all that live there.

Holiday loading

Whilst many homes have permanent occupation, there are a number which are considered holiday homes, and weekend treats / retreats often create abnormal loading (ie no load for 5 days / full load for 2).  We understand this, and offered the developers added value to ensure performance throughout the load variation.

Scarab was chosen by the developers of Verloren for its reliability and ease of operation, which removes any possibility of ground water contamination, in this perfect nature reserve.
