    Me and my friend made a thorough study about water refilling station in lapu-lapu city. Our feasibility is intended solely for both of us because we wanted to put-up the business but we don not have the resources yet. We came to conclusion By experience also, focus on geographic selling and service supported by a solid business system will ensure that a certain chosen geographic location is going to be a cornered market by an efficient delivery system at the most reasonable cost. The solid business system is composed of efficient monitoring of customers and monitoring of the reusable (expensive) bottles. Strict recording of business data e.g. sales, expenses, cash counts, bottle cycle time and distribution location is strictly complementary to each other. The steady supply of the reusable bottle is one key business area where almost all other refilling stations are lost in how to monitor and replenish. This is to meet the costumers demand for affordable yet efficient delivery of the product.

    Even if there are existing stations already, this does not affect our business viability since our system of attending to end users and costumers is not practiced by them. One difficulty of existing water stations is to completely turn around from making use of their station as a “cash cow” or “killing the goose that lays the egg.”
    Next, and strictly a complement of the first, is to grasp the business as a service/product package totally supported by the most efficient delivery and monitoring service system.
    Almost all other refilling station business owners regard data keeping and interpretation as time consuming and a headache.

    Personnel and staff empowerment e.g. decision making and ownership of responsibilities, partnership in business growth through business performance based bonus and above average pay is almost always not practiced.
    Marketing efforts of the station personnel is most often non-existent.

    The existing stations can only initially react by lowering prices which in turn can disable more their ability to serve their delivery demands for bottles and services. Attempt to copy the system will require a manager experienced in business systems, set up data base for reference in decision making, training personnel- all amounting to almost a year minimum to establish. Sustaining the effort is even more demanding.

    Llike any business you need to manage and management involves four basic function: Planning, Leading, Organizing and CONTROLLING. I highlighted the later because lack of it is a quick guarantee for failure.

    PLANNING
    1) I fully agree with you that LOCATION is key to marketing. The WRS should be at densely populated neighborhood. This guarantees walk-ins, thus, you cut the delivery cost.
    2) Get yourself a good RO machine. It should be reliable specially the RO membrane. The RO machine should be well designed to maximize output. This is a ticklish part as you would have to research and ensure raw water source is ideal for RO and it should be adequate to complement your production capability

    ORGANIZING
    Ideally, you would need a three-man team: a refiller, a washer and delivery man. The refiller maybe your manager and quality checker as he is your last person to check on water quality before it leaves your store door. He should also monitor and record raw data like # of walk-ins, # of dealers and # of deliveries. All these raw data maybe synthesized and analyzed by the owner. From these data owner should get all management data he / she needs like return on investment (ROI), return on sales (ROS)

    LEADING
    I again agree with you on INCENTIVE schemes but more importantly it should have the age-old principle of "carrot and stick". Those not following instructions like wearing of uniform should be kicked out. There should be CHECKLIST OF OPERATION. By the way, making of this checklist is under planning. This checklist must cover: pre-openning, openning and closing duties.

    CONTROLLING
    There is a software to monitor all these. This software monitors re-order cycle of customers (deliveries), it checks your consumables, records daily sales and costs and prints out on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Install a water meter so you would know how many liters are dispensed everyday. From this you can reconcile with your daily sales.

    I am talking from experience. I have three refilling station and I am embarking on my fourth, God willing.
