CHAPTER 1

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Introduction

Water is very essential for our daily life routine. People need to drink water in order to live. However, because of human introduction, directly or indirectly, of substances into the marine environment, our waters become polluted and undrinkable. Good quality water is essential, whether you are using water for survival and health or for cooling and production process. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 3.4 million people die annually from water-related diseases and they do not have access to a safe source of drinking. About a million Filipinos get sick with water-borne diseases yearly and these are diarrhea cases alone. They don’t include other water-borne disease like amoebiasis, cryptosporidiosis and cholera. These problems are accredited to the poor water system in the Philippines. Even in the capital Manila, only about three fourths of the population receives piped water from the municipal authority. Outside Manila far fewer people have access to clean water distribution. In both locations, these families must find alternate water sources if they are to avoid cholera epidemics and other health problems spawned by the foul, contaminated water available in their neighbourhoods. In the provinces, the scenario is worse. Some people rely on wells or even on rivers for their supply of water for their daily consumption. Amidst this uncertainty, a solution has appeared in the thousands of water refilling stations that now do in the Philippine landscape. Philippine Government has encouraged private entrepreneurs to start water refilling shops in their neighbourhood as an alternative source of drinking water supply.  These shops, often known as “refilling stations”, and began as privately-run community sources, where consumers would bring containers and fill them for a per-gallon fee that is a small fraction of commercially bottled water’s cost. Demand is high that most stores now offer home delivery for regular customers. Most shops produce between 3,000 and 12,000 liters of water per day. Typically, the supply comes from the pipes of municipal concessionaires. Entrepreneurs invest in treatment equipment and further purify their product before sale. Nowadays, bottled water has established a major foothold in the Philippines. With such an intense competition, how do businesses cope up with the pressure? This is what the researches of this study would like to unveil. In the course of this study, the researcher aim to discover and compare marketing strategies employed by these water refilling stations. And this study also tackles the safeties of processes used by water refilling stations in the Philippines, specifically on the Imus, Cavite on the purified water it sells to its customers. The study focuses on the processes the water refilling stations implements to purify the water from its concessionaires not in the working place of water refilling stations. The researcher chose to research on this topic since nowadays, as the demand for cleaner water becomes higher, the price of hospital water purifiers and bottled water has become prohibitive. Water refilling stations managed by private entrepreneurs offer a cheaper and more convenient solution to the public’s drinking water needs than bottled water or the use of hospital filters. The demand at the water refilling stations - water stores that sell purified water is now increasing.
