About water infra


Passion goes a long way and when coupled with an identified need in an industry, that passion can carry a life-long testament towards success.

During the early 1960s, Mr. Salie Erichsen saw such a need that could be filled. He saw the lack of a simple yet cost-effective way in which water reservoirs can be constructed. This led to the registration of a patent for an ingenious method of doing just this- using pre-cast structural concrete panels to aid
with the construction of reservoirs, and so Water Infra was born.

During the 60s, Mr. Erichsen largely used an unskilled labour workforce to help build reservoirs predominantly for the farming community.
In 1964, the company started as a family business.

Today, now in its third generation, and still proudly family-owned, we have built upon what Mr. Erichsen started 50 years ago. We have made our footprint in the reservoir construction industry known, and we’ve prepared ourselves to move boldly into the future with improvements to our flagship product, the Erichsen Reservoir, as well as expanding our impressive water storage product list to include Circa-Flow products, Zink-Al reservoirs, a lining system to help fix existing, troublesome reservoirs, as well as heavy-duty linings for earth dams.

Celebrating our 50th anniversary, we have and will always be proud of our impeccable service record as well as the fact that we are the best in the business, hands down. A bold claim, but one we back with a proven track record and the best service in the industry.

Our mission is simple; Quality is non-negotiable, and only the best service and advice are provided to our clients, which we build long-term relationships with.
