Here are a few of the most important points to think about for your business plan.
- What type and size of water bottling plant do I want to put in and what is the real cost? Would be a refilling plant or a small bottle plant?
- 2. Is the product going to be affordable to the customer? You will not be able to sell much water if the people don’t have the money to buy it.
- Will you need to make your own bottles?
- Where will I get my supplies such as bottles and caps, how long would it take to get them? Many times you may have to wait weeks to get your supplies.
- What is the true cost of the bottled water you will be selling? You need to look at the labor, bottle and cap, electrical, taxes, insurance if you have trucks the cost to run and maintain them.
- Is the water supply and electrical supply on all the time, do you need a well (borehole) and generator?
- How much water do you need to sell to make a profit on the whole business?
- What is my competition and what are they doing?
- How will my product stand out and why would people buy my product?
- How and when will you get paid for your product?
- Are the building and location good in the proper location? This makes your cost go way up if you need to deliver far away. Does it need an electrical upgrade?

As the water quality deteriorates on the African Continent, More and more people can see the need for Pure Water. As you know, for life, water is more important than sunlight. People are dying with water-born diseases and simply cannot afford bottled water. We have the solution to this problem. The solution refills.
Bottled water is expensive because of the cost of the bottle and transportation cost of the bottles. Our solution is to set up mini plants at various points all over the country. This eliminates the expensive cost of transporting water, and also the customer can use their own bottles. Not only does this cut down the cost of the bottle, but this also saves the planet. Fewer Bottles will be produced thus lowering our carbon footprint.
Bottled water has the potential to grow bacteria. Sometimes Bottled water can lie months, even years before being sold. Our plan is to sell the water directly out of the tap, at around R 0,99 per liter. The pure water is now very affordable and also “fresh” out the tap. Purified at the point of use. Franchises have good marketing concepts but have very high setup costs.
There are also many restrictions and not forgetting the royalties that must be paid. Most franchises offer products that are generally higher priced than the rest of the market, thus making if very difficult to sell their products. Puritech offers you a tailor-made solution to meet your budget.
