What kind of purifying plant do you need?
The equipment necessary for the process is called: Reverse Osmosis Smoothing EquipmentThis is necessary to eliminate the levels of calcium, magnesium and solids contained in non-potable water that reaches us through municipal pipes or by any other means.

What is the cost of the plant?
The cost of a basic purification plant is about $ 2,200 with an approximate capacity of up to 200 gallons per day. For a plant with RO softening equipment we are talking about US $ 3,800.
Additionally you will need to consider the installation that includes pipes, connections, tank, installation and basic training to operate it with an approximate cost of US $ 1000.
You should also consider the cost of a carboy filling machine with an approximate cost of $ 1000 and a carboy washing machine also costing about $ 1000. In total, the initial investment is about $ 6,800.

Considering that the monthly operating costs are approximately US $ 500 including the rent of the premises, electricity, supplies, raw materials and accessories. With a competitive price to the public of US $ 1 we could think of a daily production:
- Baja of about 30 jugs, which would represent $ 30 x 30 days = $ 900 leaving a net profit of us $ 400 a month
- Media of about 60 jugs, which would represent $ 60 x 30 days = $ 1800 leaving an approximate profit of us $ 1100 a month

Furthermore, this business requires a significant level of training, high sanitary standards, and minimal production controls to guarantee an excellent product.
