A purified water shop is a full-service retail outlet that offers local customers pure drinking water and water-related products. Purified water shops make quality drinking water available to consumers, at a much more affordable price delivered bottled water or bottled water that they purchase in the grocery store. Water Stores also sell ice and various sizes of water bottles, coolers and some even sell POU (Point of Use) equipment for the household.

Why is there a need for Water Shop?
The water shops in developing countries can provide very safe and great tasting water that people can afford to buy. There are many places in the world where people have to get up very early in the morning to go collect water from shallow wells that are unsafe and many times look like a mud puddle. There can be a solution to this problem in any city or town that has a water source.
Water stores fill the need for low-cost safe drinking water that tastes great. Most people in South Africa will buy it because it tastes great or they do not trust the quality of water coming from their taps.
Water Shop Solutions
There are several different options for safe, bottled drinking water. The first option is to buy bottled water from a store such as a grocery store, yet most times this ends up costing up to R25.00 a gallon for smaller bottles such as .5 liters. On sale, lower-cost 1-gallon bottles of water will cost you about R5.00. People do not want to pay prices this high, which is what creates demand for water stores even in well-established areas.
Some people do enjoy home deliveries, and with a water shop, it is possible to set up your own home delivery routes if you have a means of transporting the water to customers for home delivery.
The water store will sell water for different prices depending on the location. In South Africa, the average price is 1-2 cents per liter, which is due to a large number of vending machines outside of many food stores.
Many water shops also bring in additional revenue by selling bottles, crocks, coolers, and various general merchandise items.
To give you a better idea about what type of water shop equipment you will need for a standard water shop, many people will use a setup similar to the following:
- 800 GPD Reverse Osmosis Water Purification System
- 5 Faucet Water Bottle Filling Table
- 500L Stainless Steel Tank to store your purified water
- Ozone for tanks Pressure pump
- Carbon filter
