Local businessman wants to introduce plastic kegs to store spring water in CT

The European concept of Kegging is better known in the beer world as a more convenient and practical way of storing hundreds of litres of the beverage.

More and more people are standing in queues at the Newlands brewery in Cape Town waiting for their turn to fill their containers with spring water.

This is not only time-consuming, but can be a health risk as well compromising the quality of the water if stored for longer periods.

A local businessman, Andrew Pollock has been meeting with businesses and other stakeholders about a plastic keg - known as a "KeyKeg", in an effort to change the way we store and dispense liquid products, from plain drinking water to fine wines and olive oil.

I don't think its fair to my community to have a whole bunch of people coming in to the community, lining up outside certain private homes, seeking bore hole water.

Andrew Pollock, businessman

The principle is this, the KeyKeg system would become a bit like a gas cylinder where you do not go and fill it up yourself, its filled up by somebody else and all you do is you bring your empty and take away your full.

Andrew Pollock, businessman

The city should be controlling this entire system... this should be a delivered to your door service.
