  • Driver salary 4,500
  • Refiller salary 3,000

Monthly (26days) 5,200 bottles
Sales (P35per bot) 182,000.00
Net Profit 153,500.00 monthly

Kung half lang ng capacity ang nabenta..meaning 100 bottles per day.
Sales = 91,000
Net profit 62,500.00 monthly, 64,000 monthly not bad pa rin di ba? Of course habang dumadami ang bottles produced at customer you may need to employ one more driver to accommodate the delivery.

C. Important Requirements:
  1. 25sq meters of space
  2. Good source of water. Total Dissolved Solids must be below 500ppm. Meron ako tester na ginagamit to know ang TDS ng tubig. Above this TDS (500ppm) baka the quality ng product ay maapektuhan.
D. Papers required for acquiring the License for your WRS

  1. DTI
  2. Barangay permit
  3. Mayor's permit
  4. Sanitary permit from Municipality or DOH
E. Suggestions:

E1. Location
  1. You do not need to rent spacious place at along highway or road dahil tataas lang ang operating cost mo. If you have 25sqmeter sa bahay mo that will be enough. Or if you will rent naman siguro maximum take a place that would cost from 5000 to 10,000 maximum at dapat meron agreement for 5 years at least.
  2. If you are inside a well populated subdivision, very good because from the subdivision itsel you can easily earn 2 to 4k sales per day. At matipid pa sa gasolina.
  3. You do not need to be along the highway dahil 90percent of your sales will be home delivery.
E2: Equipments.
  • Actually you are saving if you will get higher capacity of Reverse Osmosis purification unit. You need to run the system half of the time(12hrs. Only) to produce 1000 gallons. Anyway, yung equipments naman ay madali i-upgrade.
  • If you can afford, get the fully automatic system. Wala ka ng babantayan na mapupuno or aapaw sa tanke. Just switch it on at it will automatically start and stop when empty at full na ang mga tangke.
E3: Delivery

You should have an idea kung saan ang maging market mo. Kung subdivision lang..motorcycle na lang ang biling mo dahil it can carry 25 bottles din at matipid sa gasolina. In our case P500 full tank every 8-10days. Noong jeep ang gamit namin it is P100 per day. Some uses padyak lang. Kung posible sa lugar niyo why not.

Contract : others will have a contract with motorcycle drivers P5 per gallon commission para ideliver ang tubig.

I design, supply and install water refilling station. Just do not forget to let me quote at least
when you come to a point of really starting a business.

Thank you again and hope to hear from you soon.

Good luck and God Bless,
Richard A. Enriquez -

The calculation about the water refilling station you make here is completely wrong. The whole investment is at least 1.000.000. The salaries you mentioned here are only the half of the truth.Fuel for 1500 a month, I can only laugh about this. We need 15.000 - 18.000 a month. All in all I warn everybody to open a water refilling station. You will not win money like me. The only one who wins is the franchising company. If you still want to open one you can buy my equipment for the half I bought it. It is only 2,5 years old.
