WATER REFILLING STATION
The demand at the water refilling stations – water stores that sell purified water – is now increasing. The quality of purified water conforms to the national standards for drinking water and is even better than the quality of water produced by traditional water supply systems in terms of removed impurities. Over the years, as the demand for cleaner water becomes higher, the price of household 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 household filters. At present, about 15 water refilling stations have proliferated in Dipolog City. They sell purified water of comparable quality with bottled water at a lower price. For example, the current price per gallon of refilled purified water in Dipolog City ranges from P 20 to P 3 per 5-gallon container when bought on store site, while prices ranges between 25 to 35 when delivered within Dipolog City.. In Dipolog City, most of the water refilling stations is connected to the pipes of Dipolog City Water District for their source of raw water while in other areas they opt to use private deep wells. The “potable water” supplied by the providers is then further purified by utilizing a combination of water treatment equipment, such as sediment filters, carbon filters, water softeners, reverse osmosis membranes, ultra-violet lamps, and ozone generators. Typical water refilling stations can produce 3,000 to 12,000 liters of purified water per day. In previous years, most of the people were bringing containers to a water refilling station to buy purified water. Nowadays, because of convenience on the part of the consumers, purified water in 5-gallon (22.7 liters) containers is delivered by the station directly to the people’s home.
