I am very much interested in setting up a pure water plant does any body have a rough estimate of how much it will cost? and possibly walk me through all the production phases?

My brother in Nigeria told me that it is possible to start with 1M and the earning potential is about 20k a day. Can anybody on the forum please advise?

Nigerians enjoy complaining.

Its because pure water is affordable, that is why we make noise over its neatness and affordability

Do you have any idea how much it costs to buy all the equipments needed to set up a satchet water production facility? the cost of building the structures and putting everything in place??

you've got no idea. that is why many people demonize "pure" satchet water.(in Nigeria). its not like this in other countries where they're also produced.

we claim to be big boys because we drink bottled water. the same bore hole is the source of your bottled water. the only difference is that its not in a satchet.

Try and visit a bottling plant and see for your self.

i beg to disagree, distilled water CAN be 100% pure; however doctors say that it's not good to drink; perhaps you mean no

NATURALLY 100% pure water; that i won't argue with

and where does the spring get it's water from? at least the particles that pollute rain water are strictly in the air; spring water is

from the ground which collects it from rain that has fallen somewhere; of course if you talked about lagos rain water i have no

argument with that; truth is, there are some places where rain water is purer than any other source of water and there are places

where the air is so impure it can even be harmful

however i'm almost sure you won't find many purer sources of rain than the one that falls in your village

like all those cities where you have acid rain

True but My dear, it seems you didnt read my last posts.

How can someone who buys purification and packaging machines worth almost 2 million naira not be able to produce clean water.

These are the same machines used in other countries to produce satchet water. And these equipments are of International standards. They were not just made for nigerian use.

True we have dubious people who just package junk and sell to the general public. That is why its essential that NAFDAC and Ministry of Health buckle up and arrest and prosecute anyone caught producing substandard items for Nigerian consumption.

I admit that there are many crooks who use impulse sealer to "hand" produce satchet water from untreated taps. I've seen that with my own eyes and i truelly wept.

the fact remains that there are a few good ones out there and i believe anyone who sets out for producing satchet water with the automotive machine can very well treat his water water because to buy all these equipments cost big money.

How many Nigerians can afford to buy bottled water on daily basis? How many Nigerians have the time to boil and sift out their drinking water daily?

NAFDAC should sit up and do their job very well.

@ Agbalanze

The purest water is Spring ,not rain water. Rain water is one of the impurest types of water. as it comes down, it gets mixed up with a lot of particles.

Water  from the springs is said to be the purest on earth. Meanwhile, only bottled water from, Nigerain -German Chemical company, UAC, Coca-cola, smithkilme-beecham, etc can be said to be safe for drinking and I advise everyone to cultivate the habit of drinking only from those sources. If you can buy a bottle of star, stout etc, you can also buy two or three 1 litre bottle of water for your consumption per day.

Thank you.

Lets drink Poor water! Lets drink Pure gutter! Lets drink those waters made from canals and untreated boreholes, but their samples pass NAFDAC laboratory tests (after money must have exchanged hands). Some pure water companies take samples from Eva water or Gossy and seal in in their sachet. Thats what they present to NAFDAC Laboratory for test, hahaha!!!!!!!!! drink pure acid, AFTERALL "GERMS ARE HAVE NO AUTHORITY FOR AFRICA MAN BELLE.", I just quoted Chika Opalla (Zaburudaya) MON.

Interesting findings, I must say.

BTW what exactly is 'pure' water? my understanding is that it's one in which the level of extraneous matter - which of course there will always be, no matter the extent of purification - does not constitute a health hazard to the individual consuming it. so in that case most of our pure/packaged water are ok.

As pure as my bath water, ok! Don't bother with them!  Just if you can boil all your drinking waters and save them in the fridge if you have one and if you don't have any, still save them in bottles and leave in a cooler place when you need them.  Even in the Uk they aren't as clean as claimed.  There was a Hoooooohaaaah here not so long ago (3yrs ago) when investigative journalism (Panorama) exposed the flaws in all bottled waters imported from abroad including British ones.  As for Nigerian pure water, pleeeeaaaassseee!!!!!!!!! Unless if you want a bit of diahorrea or cholera - take a pick!!!!!

Vote with your feet, stop buying them!  This would put them out of business, for good. Why pity somebody who doesn't care about your health and wellbeing!

Please people, use your brains and stop falling for brand names and fashion as doing so will not only harm you but increase the bank account of these crooks.  Please, put them out of business for good.

Thanks for supporting with evidence, As much as some people might not want to believe, Nigeria can do things to meet international standards (if we want to)

It's pretty simple. Just put the bottle or sachet in a dark corner over a period of 2 to 3 weeks and see the wonders of biology unfold. If there's a single impurity in it, It'll all coagulate and turn green with time.

The poor pure water is just to satisfy immediate thirst. Even the ones certified by NAFDAC are purely poor cos they begin to produce jargons from stinky environments the moment they get the approval they needed.

Two producers of poor water, I heard on Tiwa n Tiwa news last week were arrested. They were found sealing the sachet manually in a room locked up with irons and bars to prevent people from sneaking thru but nemesis caught up with them.

What I have always thought of is that NAFDAC should get these sachets and bottle water from outside and test it over a period of time to verify who is doing it well and who is not cos if they notify that they will visit the company, the management would have put their house in order and NAFDAC will not get them.

I'm a student of Environmental mgt and toxicology and I had to do a water analysis practical course. I tested Gossy water, Eva and Ragolis. Their pH levels were remarkably neutral ranging from 6.9-7.1. Gossy was 7.0! Dissolved solid analysis was also very very low ranging from 0.001 to 0.010, again Gossy was lowest. Dissolved calcium and conductivity levels were also in line with WHO standards. One brand of sachet water also did very well. As much as we all want to believe they are impure, they actually are doing a great job. I stopped abusing those brands of water after that practical session because we compared them with well water and tap water using WHO requirements. If I didn't do it personally, I'd still not believe but I do now.

There is nothing like pure water. What we have is satchet water and our highly glorified bottled water which have being treated with chlorine and sometimes iodine. Even rain being refered as the purest form of water contains impurities and dust particles. And spring contains rock salt. Generally, water cannot be 100% pure and "pure" means being free from impurities which implies that water is never pure.

not all pure water producers are registered and i believe for one to have a pure water production facility, you MUST get clearance from the Ministery of health and Nafdac too.

on your statement, we know they are not all "pure". it all depends on who is producing the pure water and the Recommended water treatment from NAFDAC.

so, what chemicals are you talking about? Educate us
