Earlier in the year Virgin Active announced that it would be turning off their steam rooms and saunas, as well as stop topping up their pools with municipal water.
CapeTalks Kieno Kammies speaks to Virgin Active South Africa to find out how much water have they saved so far.
Spokesperson at Virgin Active South Africa, Les Aupiais, says they've saved about 13 million litres of water to date by putting all these processes in place.
I suppose when members come in they can't really see it because it is so much behind the scenes.— Les Aupiais, Spokesperson at Virgin Active South Africa
She says they've installed water tanks to harvest rain water and that's what they are currently using to top up their pools.
The running of these clubs have now changed in terms of water saving measures and Aupiais says they have no intentions of going back to their old ways of doing things.
