Water Purification Business | Plan to Start Water Filtration Business

Question: Dear Sir, I have more than 25 years experience in the Water & Waste Water treatment business. Out of the above experience, I have 18 years experience in the Middle East (Dubai) region.

Before retiring, I intend to start a small scale business such as taking up dealer ship of the water treatment equipment and chemicals in India.

I am from Bangalore and hence want to set up my business in Bangalore.

My question to you is:

  • How to approach the manufacturer who wants to give me the dealer ship for their products (Water related)?
  • What would be the initial budget to start such business?

Appreciate your reply as soon as possible.

Best regards

Answer:  As you are very well experienced person, you may know that big companies have their direct contracts for such products with the manufacturers. If you want to start dealership you can start with the consumer durables products. Like Pure it, Aqua guard etc.

Big companies like coca-cola, PepsiCo etc. have their direct contracts with the water equipments manufacturer so it is difficult to get in to that channel. But the second option is for sure possible and for that, you have to register yourself with company by the way of website or personally.

They will collect some deposit from you and give you the franchisee for their products.

If anyone wants any further guidence, you can ask questions.

Thank you.

    Dear Sir,
    I am a graduate in engineering in automobile but keenly interested to start a business of packaged drinking water.
    Initially I do not have a big investment so I am planning to start it with packaged jar of 20 litres of purified water on a hired land as there is no restriction from BIS(Bureau Of Indian Standards) for selling it as suggested by some vendors from which I am buying water treatment machines.IS it true?
    Can I sell this jars to public?
    The reason for not going through BIS is that it needs a chemical labs and quantum of space for storage etc.still there are discrepancies for getting an approval from BIS.
    Due to low budget neither I am unable to fulfill the requirements of BIS nor I can spend the time required to get it approved as currently I am on a job in a reputed firm and the hired land is too very small to construct a lab, storage space etc also I can not give it to the consultant as others do due to low budget. I will get late to start my project as I have thought.
    If I bypass BIS then it becomes quite easier to achieve my dreams.
    Shall I carry on with the same?Kindly suggest.

      Mr. Bharat,
      If you do SWOT analysis of this business for you, there are less strengths and many weaknesses.
      So better to think of other ideas. I would like to advise you that you should have 4-5 business plans. If your one plan takes a lot of time then you can shift to the other. Just by wasting time in thinking “now what to do?”, will not give you any thing.
      So better to start thinking of new ides.
      There are many posts in this website. Those posts may suggest you new, innovative and affordable business ideas.
      Thank you.

    This is really good idea to start water purification business, you need to have really good business plan to get started on this.

    As you already have experience in this filed, it will be easier for you to do technical setup.

    Investment depends on the scale of business, but I will say you start on small scale and then expand after seeing response.
