SPAH: Save treated water, economy-friendly

PUCHONG, JUNE 8: The State Government has allocated RM20,000 for the Rainwater Harvesting System (SPAH) at Sri Kesidang Apartment, as a pioneer project in Puchong.
Kinrara Assemblyman, Ng Sze Han said, this is because SPAH is an effective alternative to reduce consumption of treated water.
He said it is also useful to residents for other daily requirement.
“We chose this apartment to try the SPAH system as there is an underground water source that we can take from besides creating a rainwater reservoir.
“This system has many benefits to the management and residents in this apartment. The water can be used to clean toilets, floor, water the plants, general cleaning, clean the pool and vehicles,” he said to SelangorKini.
He added that he plans to employ the same system in other areas after seeing how effective it is to reduce dependency on treated water, if he is given additional budget.
Meanwhile, Sri Kesidang Apartment Residents Association Chairman, Yap Chee Meng said, since the system was implemented, almost 299 units of homes have benefited from it.
“Normally, to clean the pool require 165,000 litres of water a month which cost RM400.
“With the system, we can now save almost 25 percent water consumption when two water tanks can contain almost 40,000 litres in a month depending on the weather,” he said.
