Benefits of Sub-Sand Sea Water Abstraction

Fish farms, prawn hatcheries, research laboratories, swimming pools, marine aquaria and desalination plants can all benefit from 
a system pioneered on the English coast in 1965, whereby the sea water is drawn from BELOW THE SAND in the beach. 
(See Sub-Sand Sea Water Intakes for a full account)


THE PROVEN BENEFITS OF THIS TECHNIQUE INCLUDE............

  • TOTAL EXCLUSION OF ALL FOULING ORGANISMS, PARASITES 
    AND PLANKTON.
  • GREAT REDUCTION IN BACTERIA.
  • BEACH SAND BECOMES AN ASSET AND NOT THE PROBLEM 
    IT OFTEN IS.
  • ALL DEBRIS AND OIL POLLUTION EXCLUDED.
  • ALL INCOMING WATER IS PRE-FILTERED.
  • MORE CONSTANT TEMPERATURE AND SALINITY POSSIBLE.
  • CONTINUOUS PUMPING IS OFTEN POSSIBLE FROM FLAT SANDY BEACHES EVEN WHEN THE TIDE IS OUT DUE TO THE RESERVOIR EFFECT Of THE BEACH.
