In last month’s blog we spoke about Seaqual’s ISO 9001 certification journey and how the introduction of Quality Management Systems (QMS) in our day-to-day business practices has improved the overall productivity and customer satisfaction of our business. We now want to move on to the certifications we have received for some of the products in our range.

One of the leading ways to ensure your company’s competence in the eyes of your customers is to undergo the process of obtaining an official certification. This is done through a governing body or a private institution that has the authority to grant such certifications. At Seaqual, we conform to ISO 9001:2015 codes of practice and in this month’s blog, we are going to talk about the process behind obtaining this certification and why it is considered to be of such a high standard in the industry.  

Coming soon in Part 2 of this blog is our Agrèment South Africa Certification where we take a closer look at why this was such an important step in verifying the high quality and standard of our WetFloor and Full-bore ranges.

Within the foundation of buildings, plumbing systems refer to the collection of carefully constructed piping networks that firstly, distribute drinking water (also called potable water) to basins, baths, showers & washing machines throughout the structure and secondly, safely dispose of wastewater into both the civil stormwater & sewerage systems.

Stormwater attenuation has become a very important part of construction in recent years due to increased urbanisation and harsh weather conditions that have been continually on the rise worldwide. In accordance with SANS 20252-2, stormwater attenuation refers to the collection and storage of excess runoff from a site so that it can be released slowly into the storm water system. This is in an effort to mitigate the risk of urban flooding in areas located further down from the rainfall site.

When it comes to the well-being of the environment, “plastic” is somewhat of a swear word amongst activists and with good reason. But the reality is that non-consumables like plumbing products and drains need to be manufactured from long-lasting materials that won’t malfunction and break soon after installation. Since plastics are durable, plenteous, and cost effective, they do make for a great manufacturing material but let’s talk about one plastic in particular.
