Thank you for taking the time to review this exciting business opportunity on our PUREAQUA water vending systems. The Water Clinic has been custom designing and engineering commercial, residential and rural water purification systems in North America since 1983. Due to the recent water quality concerns, the bottled water industry is becoming one of the fastest growing industries throughout the world. Through our market research, we have realized enormous potential for water vending systems that produce and dispense reverse osmosis purified water into the 5 gallon/18.9 liter container. We have also realized that consumers are becoming very concerned with the quality and high cost of bottled water.
The majority of bottled water companies will usually sell 5 gallons/18.9 liters of water from $5.00 - $9.00. The approximate cost to produce 5 gallons/18.9 liters of reverse osmosis water is only 10 cents, which covers the cost of water, wastewater and electricity.
Presently, there are some retail centers that sell bottled water. Bottled water companies will usually supply them with the bottle racks, deliver the water and wholesale the water to them anywhere from $3.00 - $4.00 per 5 gallon/18.9 liter bottle. The problems with this concept are the high cost, the amount of valuable floor space that it takes up and the inconvenience of those full and empty bottles lying around.
Bottled water companies have already completed the marketing for bottled water throughout the world, which means lower start up costs in advertising. Our marketing concept, which we believe is a ground floor opportunity for you, requires very little advertising and suggests the stores initially sell 5 gallons/18.9 liters of water for only 99 cents as an introductory offer only in order to quickly capture market share.
We initiated this concept in 2001 and presently sell approximately 6000 bottles per month, of which 80% are competitors. We recently increased our price for 5 gallons/18.9 liters of water to $2.00 and have not noticed any decrease in sales and strongly believe in the concept “volume over margins”. I have even suggested to some retailers to provide the water free of charge for a certain period in order to quickly establish themselves into the marketplace.
I believe selling 5 gallons/18.9 liters of water for only 99 cents is one of the biggest traffic generators any retail store can experience today. Just imagine the possibility of thousands of potential customers in stores each month and the potential spin offs generated in by selling bottled water for this low price. I’m sure you will agree that in the very near future, our PUREAQUA vending systems and marketing concept will revolutionize the bottled water industry and the days of selling 5 gallons/18.9 liters of water for $6.00, $5.00, $4.00 or even $3.00 will finally be over.
Our PUREAQUA system is one of the highest performing, lowest maintenance, competitively priced and attractive water vending systems in North America. All of our systems come standard with a state of the art water purification system, all of which can be custom designed according to your water quality and quantity requirements. Other water vending manufacturers may supply you with a sub standard water purification system in order to make the initial cost less, however their profits are made on the parts and service which can cost as much as $2,000.00 per year. Other manufacturers also may not provide you with territory protection. Installation, service and scheduled maintenance of the PUREAQUA system can easily be performed by yourself or your maintenance staff, when required.
Some of the retail locations where this type of concept works extremely well are in grocery stores, convenience stores, wine and beer stores, dollar stores, health food stores, car washes, pharmacies, service stations, hardware stores and home retail centers. We presently have customers that are exceeding $5,000.00 monthly in sales from the PUREAQUA system and their business continues to grow at a rapid pace.
