1-Business Plan 
To start any business, be it pure water business, supermarket or even any other online business, you must start with first writing your BUSINESS PLAN.

A Business plan is a written document showing details of your pure water business (or any other business) startup, operational objectives and strategies. Startup and operating costs, marketing, advertising and sales strategies, pricing and profit margins, supplier lists, insurance information and lots more .

Your plan after being draft and proofed can be used for obtaining loans, get investors and for other analytical purposes. Business plan can be modified as your business grows.

You can write a business plan by yourself or you may hire a consultant to write one for you.

2- Land/Building/Factory Site
In my previous articles about pure water business, I have often removed this very first and important thing you need before you can start your water factory. I deliberately omit it because any business owner knows that they need land, or building for their water factory, because water for consumption can not be produced in just any factory site, not to talk of an open space. However, most of my clients already have a building they want to use for the factory, sometimes the building may just need a little correction of the layout to fit into a factory that would be easily approved by NAFDAC.
Well, you need at least a plot of land for your pure water factory or even more. Again I have seen clients make mistakes of setting their pure water factory on a small plot, like half a plot or even far lesser than that. The whole business is choked up, your production room is choked, the storage is choked and you will hardly even be having a place to park any truck or other vehicles.

My advice is for you to use a plot of land, your business may bloom up in no time and you will be restricted in what quantity you can produce, the number of people who can be in the factory at the same time and you may end up losing business to competitors when you are unable to attend to all your clients and customers.
To buy a plot of land in Lagos, you need a between N1.5million to N4.5million, in Ikorodu, Epe and some developing settlements in the state.

You can get land to buy at cheaper rates in other states like Oyo, Kogi, Ondo and others. You can find out from agents.

When you have acquired your land, budget about  N5million to N10 million for constructing a bungalow that will serve as your factory together with fencing, finishing and furnishing, digging of borehole, and interlocking the compound. 

3- Distillation System 
Now that you are through with your building and structuring and borehole, you have to start with the Distillation process. Its the Distillation system you chose that will determine whether people will like the taste of your water or  not. However the system are not the same in terms of cost and effectiveness.

Reverse Osmosis is one of the most widely used and easier to install system. It produces water with highest level of purity and very perfect for your pure water production if you can afford it.

Most pure water makers in Nigeria use just ultra violet bulb for purifying their water which is not that effective but cheaper.

See picture of an ultra violet bulb treatment system look like.

A standard distillation system, depending on what you chose may cost between N1million to N10million.
What is used by most Nigeria Pure water business owners is the Ultra Violet Filtration processing. The entire purification processing machines costs less than N500,000 compare to N1million or upto N10 million of the other processes above.


Automatic Sealing Machine
This is almost the most important thing in your factory. Without the automatic sealing machine machine, you can not have a pure water.

Take note that machines used for bottling line is totally different from the automatic sealing machine, so if you are going into sachet and bottled water, you need another machine for the purpose of bottling different from your sachet sealing machine.

You can start with one automatic sealing machine, depending on the volume of water you intend to produce per day.

Dingli sachet water sealing machine type is very ideal. This machine is high precision packing machine and the one of most advanced liquid compound packaging machine available, which stands at the size of a double door refrigerator, three side sealing and intermittent. It can automatically complete Bag making, filling, sealing, printing, cutting and counting. Controlled by microprocessor and automatic photocell.

Current market price of Dingli is between N750,000  and N850,000.  One Dingli Sealing machine can take care of the entire production on daily basis. It works automatically and does it’s work efficiently.

Truck/Vehicle
You can hardly do a pure water business without having a truck or vehicle for carrying your products to where they are demanded. I have mentioned it over again in my past articles that you need to get a good truck that will not breakdown when it is needed. You need a good truck that can go into any road where supply is needed.You can budget up to N1.5million and above for your truck

Staffing
This is one of the most important aspects of your pure water business just like every other business that will survive. You will need minimum of between seven to ten persons to work in your factory for a start then increase with time as the demand may be.
Be careful in your selection. Below are the personnel your company needs. Depending on the number of machines and trucks you have for your factory you will need at least:
 
Operator/Manager(1):  Your production manager should either be a food nutritionist, food technologist, chemical scientists, microbiologist or a water engineer. The production manager may double as cashier unless you can afford extra personnel which may not be necessary.
