Seaqual (Pty) Ltd is a private company registered in South Africa. We design and manufacture a range of drainage solutions and pipe anchors synonymous with quality, durability and innovation. Our pipe anchors are used to secure plumbing and electrical pipes to any type of surface. All our products are manufactured from recyclable materials in our ISO9000 compliant production facility in Knysna, which is situated in the heart of South Africa’s famous Garden Route. Our products are installed throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. Along with product patents, we designed and own the moulds and injection-moulding machines used to manufacture the plastic components needed to create our products. We outsource production of the stainless-steel components and assemble and package these components, together with those made in our own factory, to form the recognised brands in the Seaqual range.
In addition, we are the exclusive distributor for Mufle channel drains (Italy) in Southern Africa.
In 1993 a local Knysna plumber with 37 years of experience in the industry established Seaqual cc to produce solar panels designed to withstand the harsh coastal weather conditions. The name Seaqual derives from Sea Quality.
In 2006 he teamed up with a local businessman and the focus of the business changed to creating specialised plumbing products, with the intent to resolve plumbing issues that he had encountered in his many years in the industry. Seaqual’s flagship product the Rain Drain was the first patented product to be produced.
The plumbing industry recognised the benefits of this specialised product and this led to further products being designed and produced.
In 2010 the original owner retired from the company, but the business continued to grow as the plumbing industry recognised the benefits of using our specialised products.
In 2012, a new partner joined the company and in 2013 we purchased our own injection moulding machines and began to manufacture our own products.
In 2015 Seaqual became a private limited company
In 2018 Seaqual purchased their own factory.
Over the years, additional products have been added to the line. The company continues to grow – now employing 25 people in 4 provinces.
Every product in our range has been thoroughly tested – mechanically, practically and competitively – and our high level of standards have seen us become the product range of choice for the plumbing and building industries, both locally and abroad.
We are ISO9001 certified, and have received 2 Agrément certifications (an independent South African centre serving the building and engineering communities by providing assurances and technical approvals of products fitness-for-purpose) covering 4 product ranges
