Cleanawater started out offering water treatment in Melbourne and now leads the Australian market in water treatment system design, manufacture, installation and servicing. Starting out as an oil water separator manufacturer, we now also offer wash bay, rainwater harvesting, pump stations, skimmers and chemical control solutions – both off-the-shelf and bespoke. It`s why we can proudly boast household names like Boeing, VISY, Toll and the Department of Defence as long-term clients. The term “wastewater” doesn’t have particularly appealing connotations. In areas of the world where water appears to be an infinite and easily accessed resource, we pay little attention to what happens to the water after we’ve used it.
