Cleanawater is a leader in sustainable water treatment technology. Based in Melbourne and established in 1996, the company has experienced very strong growth in the last 5 years due to a strong go-to-market strategy, investment in new technology that has opened up new markets and opportunities, and increased competitiveness resulting from improved supply lines and the streamlining of manufacturing processes.  

The Sale of the business was conducted by our Victorian Team, using Lloyds Tender Process in conjunction with the application of Lloyds Target Marketing, produced some spirited offers which resulted in a highly successful Sale. 

Leaders in wastewater treatment and management


In 1996 Cleanawater started out as a company offering water treatment within Melbourne.  From humble beginnings in a garage, over the past decades Cleanawater has grown into the leader in the Australian for water treatment system design, manufacturing, installations and servicing.

Their award winning solutions are approved by Australian water authorities and include custom built systems as well as off-the-shelf units.  Their systems are engineered for economy, ease of use and performance!  

Cleanawater Solutions include:

  • Oil Water Separators

  • Oil Skimmers

  • First Flush Diversion 

  • Wash Bay Solutions

  • Harvesting & Recycling units

  • Pumping Stations 

  • Chemical Control

Case Study: A client with sites in Darwin required a stormwater management and wash water recycling system to provide disinfection and pH correction.  This was needed while also ensuring water was suitable for re-use in wash bays. Darwin's harsh climate meant that the solution needed to be hardy. It had to be able to operate reliably in the city's humid climate without access to a sewer point. Cleanawater developed a custom solution - a containerised water treatment / recycling system: perfect for use in very humid and hot weather conditions.
