Scarab Waste water treatment solutions in South Africa


We are a renowned provider of innovative wastewater treatment solutions. Originally operating solely in South Africa and now expanding to Australia, Scarab Water specializes in designing and installing package plants and domestic sewage treatment systems. The brand's journey began in the early 2000s when it introduced groundbreaking wastewater solutions to the market.

To bring their vision to life, Scarab invested significantly in research and development, culminating in the creation of their first package plant prototype. This revolutionary design was successfully implemented in 2002 and has remained operational to this day, demonstrating its exceptional effectiveness and reliability.

Under the leadership of our CEO, Steve Nicol, Scarab achieved recognition for its technological innovation. In 2004, he was interviewed for the prestigious Da-Vinci Top Technology 100 awards program and featured in the SABC Business Update. TT100, a renowned organization that annually selects the top 100 South African companies, has honored Scarab's sewage systems five times.

What sets these sewage treatment systems apart is their combination of advanced technology and simplicity. Extensive research and development efforts have resulted in a product that remains virtually unchanged since its inception. This package plant prototype has been extensively tested in rural and peri-urban areas across Africa and Australia since 2001, showcasing its ruggedness, reliability, ease of maintenance and operation, and trouble-free performance.

At Scarab, we pride ourselves on using only the finest materials and employing top-tier manufacturing processes. By leveraging the right technology, we have created a product that surpasses all other currently available systems in terms of performance.

The exceptional quality of our sewage treatment systems has garnered international acclaim, earning us numerous awards and endorsements. This recognition solidifies Scarab's position at the forefront of the water treatment solutions industry.
