Buying of the Wrong Machines:
People are very sensitive to defects in water, it’s something that concerns their health, and nobody jokes with such things.

Just one silly mistake in these areas can destroy your reputation and discourage people from buying from you.

- Coliform levels increase
- Water Odour
- Occurrence of Reverse osmosis issues (This is problem in the purification system)
NAFDAC Registration Mistakes
NAFDAC frowns at many practices in the pure water production business. Not knowing the rules can get you into trouble and lead to the close down of your business. Imagine spending money on all the equipment, renting or building the factory etc and end up tying all that capital down indefinitely. The worst part is if the money was borrowed.
There is some paperwork involved that should be handled by an experienced consultant instead of doing it yourself. In fact, from the source of your water to the qualification of the staff you hire, they are all under scrutiny by NAFDAC.
Poor Management and Bypassing of Consultants
Employing the wrong staff is a cancer that slowly eats up your profits without you knowing it. They ruin your business and move to the next. Some of these workers are serial business killers moving from one business to the other, causing losses everywhere. the earlier you identify them and kick them out, the better for you and your business.
For example, a daily quota of 500bags can earn you N1,070,000 within 26 working days. (This is based on a N83 per bag whole sale price). After deducting expenses such as printing on the nylon, labour, transportation, rent, maintenance etc you should be left with at least N524,000 (Contact 07065117394 for detailed analysis) but when your production is teamed up with the wrong set of staff things can get really ugly. Backdoor sales, waste, messed up water filtration system, poor maintenance are things you should fight against to make a headway in the business.
Apart from the estimated monthly net profit of N524,000, keep it in mind that other costs such as drilling of borehole, procurement of machines, land and building are part of your production costs. So not selecting your staff carefully will extend your break-even point and delay your payback period. (Payback period means the year when you have made back the entire money you used to setup the business and you have started making pure profits).

This is how it works, you collect pure water bags in wholesale price from the company (sometimes on credit) and store the bags in your freezers to make them ice cold. Then the pure water hawkers come to you to buy in bags. The pure water hawkers usually sell up to 5 bags in a day especially during the dry season.
Since you sell it Ice Cold, the pure water hawkers do not need to buy ice blocks. And when you sell their favourite brands of pure water, they tell fellow hawkers and business smiles at you. With this method, you don’t need to bother yourself about production and marketing. In fact, to make it even better, you can get a distribution van that delivers the iced water to restaurants, drink sellers, sellers of pastries such as meat pie, buns etc. That being said, you still need to buy the right generator and freezer.
