Memulai Bisnis Baru “Air Minum Isi Ulang”

Mencoba bisnis baru dibidang air minum isi ulang, untuk berbisnis air minum isi ulang ini ternyata tidak dibutuhkan modal yang terlalu besar, hanya saja dibutuhkan tempat yang strategis. Tempat yang strategis ini ternyata dapat mendongkrak penjualan sampai 50 % selain harga tentunya yang lebih kompetitif, karena orang sangat interest sekali untuk mendapatkan perbedaan harga walaupun kalau kita lihat perbedaan harga itu tidak signifikan berbeda, bisa dibilang bisnis ini mirip dengan jual voucer isi ulang, orang akan mencari tempat pengisian walaupun perbedaan harga bisa dikatakan tipis dan hampir ngga jauh beda. Bisnis air minum isi ulang ini entah siapa penggagas duluan, dikarenakan harga air minum A*q*a makin kesini semakin tinggi saja, dan bahkan air kemasan botol sekali minumpun makin keseni makin mahal saja walaupun kandungan mineral yang terdapat pada air minum ini boleh dibilang tidak jauh berbeda.Pengambilan air dari kaki gunung manglayang memang dapat membatu banyak kepada para penjual air minum isi ulang ini, selain airnya jernih test lab pun menunjukan kadar mineral air dari kaki gunung Manglayang ini cukup dan bahkan sangat bagus untuk dikonsumsi.

Water softening (water softener)

Water softening (water softener) is the reduction of the concentration of calcium, magnesium, and other ions in hard water. These "hardness ions" can cause a variety of undesired effects including interfering with the action of soaps, the build up of limescale, which can foul plumbing, and galvanic corrosion. Conventional water-softening appliances intended for household use depend on an ion-exchange resin in which hardness ions are exchanged for sodium ions. Water softening may be desirable where the source of water is hard. However, hard water also conveys some benefits to health by providing dietary calcium and magnesium and reducing the solubility of potentially toxic metal ions such as lead and copper.

Methods for water softening

Water softening methods mainly rely on the removal of Ca2+ and Mg2+ from a solution or the sequestration of these ions, i.e. binding them to a molecule that removes their ability to form scale or interfere with detergents. Removal is achieved by ion exchange and by precipitation methods. Sequestration entails the addition of chemical compounds called sequestration (or chelating) agents.

Since Ca2+ and Mg2+ exist as nonvolatile salts, they can be removed by distilling the water, but distillation is too expensive in most cases (rainwater is soft because it is, in effect, distilled).

Ion-exchange resin devices

Ion-exchange materials contain sodium ions (Na+) that are electrostatically bound and that readily are replaced by hardness ions such as Ca2+ and Mg2+. Ion exchange resins are organic polymers containing anionic functional groups to which the Na+ is bound. Minerals called zeolites also exhibits ion-exchange properties; these minerals are widely used in laundry detergents.

The water to be treated passes through a bed of the resin. Negatively-charged resins absorb and bind metal ions, which are positively charged. The resins initially contain univalent (1+) ions, most commonly sodium, but sometimes also hydrogen (H+) or potassium (K+). Divalent calcium and magnesium ions in the water replace these univalent ions, which are released into the water. The "harder" the water, the more hydrogen, sodium or potassium ions are released from the resin and into the water.

Resins are also available to remove carbonate, bi-carbonate and sulphate ions which are absorbed and hydroxyl ions released from the resin. Both types of resin may be provided in a single water softener.


The resin's capacity is gradually exhausted and eventually it contains only divalent ions, Mg2+ and Ca2+ for cation exchange resins, and SO42- for anion exchange resins. At this stage, the resin must be regenerated. If a cationic resin is used (to remove calcium and magnesium ions) then regeneration is usually effected by passing a concentrated brine, usually of sodium chloride or potassium chloride, or hydrochloric acid solution through them. For anionic resins, regeneration typically uses a solution of sodium hydroxide (lye) or potassium hydroxide. The salts used for regeneration are released into the soil or sewer.

In industrial scale water softening plants, the effluent flow from re-generation process can precipitate scale that can interfere with sewerage systems.

Other methods

Lime softening

Chelating agents

Chelators are used in chemical analysis, as water softeners, and are ingredients in many commercial products such as shampoos and food preservatives. Citric acid is used to soften water in soaps and laundry detergents. A commonly used synthetic chelator is EDTA.

Health effects

Effects of sodium

For people on a low-sodium diet, the increase in sodium levels (for systems releasing sodium) in the water can be significant, especially when treating very hard water. For example:

A person who drinks two litres (2L) of softened, extremely hard water (assume 30 gpg) will consume about 480 mg more sodium (2L x 30 gpg x 8 mg/L/gpg = 480 mg), than if unsoftened water is consumed.

This amount is significant, The American Heart Association (AHA) suggests that the 3 percent of the population who must follow a severe, salt-restricted diet should not consume more than 400 mg of sodium a day. AHA suggests that no more than 10 percent of this sodium intake should come from water. The EPA’s draft guideline of 20 mg/L for water protects people who are most susceptible. Most people who are concerned with the added sodium in the water generally have one tap in the house that bypasses the softener, or have a reverse osmosis unit installed for the drinking water and cooking water, which was designed for desalinisation of sea water. Potassium chloride can also be used instead of sodium chloride, which would have the added benefit of helping to lower blood pressure, although costly. However, this should be done carefully as elevated potassium levels are dangerous and can lead to complications such as cardiac arrhythmia, although a person with normal kidney function would have to consume a large amount of potassium to develop hyperkalemia.

Executive summary about water softener systemsBy Kent Pinkerton

water softener systems

Water Softener Systems

Do you ever feel like nothing you do when you clean works? Do you still feel dirty when you get out of the shower? Does your hair feel dry after you wash it? Your problem might be hard water.

The term, “hard water,” refers to water with a high mineral content. The most common minerals that cause water hardness are calcium and magnesium. When these minerals end up in a household’s water supply household pipes become clogged and appliance efficiency is reduced. Home water softener systems are machines that tap into the household water supply and filter water as it comes through to remove calcium and magnesium, the most common minerals that cause water hardness. Home water softener systems typically consist of a brine tank and the filter. These systems are also equipped with a meter to indicate when the sodium needs to be recharged. As water moves through the machine, calcium or magnesium ions change places with “”softer”" ions as they pass through the filter. The calcium or magnesium ions stay behind, and water continues through the pipes, softened by salt.

Do You Need a water softener systems?

Executive summary about water softener systems By Pam Baldwin

You need to “soften” the water, or remove the minerals. You can either do that at the point of use, say the kitchen sink, but it often makes the most sense to soften the water as it enters your house, with a whole house water softener systems. There are two basic types of water softening systems.

The first type of system works by simply mixing salt with the incoming water. No salt water softener systems are a bit more complicated in operation. How much will it cost you to clean and maintain the various home appliances that can become clogged or stained by prolonged exposure to hard water. One option that might make the cost easier to bear is to look at combination water filter and softener system, since the benefits of clean water for drinking are much easier to appreciate.

Clearwave Electronic Water Softener System

Water Softener


$146.47 & this item ships for FREE with Super Saver Shipping.

Product Description

Use less soap, and remove scale from your pipes - continuously, automatically and for only about $5 in electricity a year. Clearwave is the most advanced computerized anti-scale device available today. Its computer chip is programmed to bombard water passing through your pipe with over 200 different electromagnetic low frequency pulses. These electromagnetic pulses have been scientifically proven to increase the electromotive attraction potential of the water to mineral salts. The result is that the mineral salts (mainly calcium bicarbonate) stays dissolved in the water instead of converting to insoluble calcium carbonate and attaching itself to the inside of pipes as scale. Existing scale in pipes, water heaters, toilets and faucets begin to soften and dissolve away. Recommended for dishwashers, washing machines, coffee makers, and boilers. Clearwave can even replace base exchange softening systems and the associated maintenance costs. Installation of the Clearwave is simple. Mount to the main incoming water pipe to the home with pipe clips, wrap the antenna leads around pipe and then plug into a 110V power supply. One unit handles incoming supply pipes up to 1" in diameter. For pipes 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" use two units in series. Works with all types of pipe including: copper, pvc, galvanized, and stainless steel. Manufacturer's part number CW-1.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems

Reverse osmosis is one of the most common and effective means of purifying water for drinking and many high purity water today. In fact, Reverse Osmosis is commonly used by most major bottled water manufacturing companies to purify water from their sources before bottling. A reverse osmosis system will remove the majority of common impurities, making water look and taste Pure and Fresh.

To understand Reverse Osmosis we must first understand Osmosis. During natural osmosis, water flows from a less concentrated solution through semipermeable membrane to a more concentrated saline solution until concentrations on both sides of the membrane are equal. A reverse osmosis membrane has a thin microporous surface that rejects impurities, but allows water to pass through. The membrane rejects bacteria, pyrogens, and 85%-99% of inorganic solids. Polyvalent ions are rejected easier than monovalent ions. Organic solids with molecular weight greater than 300 are rejected by the membrane. Reverse osmosis is a percent rejection technology. The purity of reverse osmosis product water is much higher than the purity of the feed water.

Ultrafiltration Water Treatment Systems

Water Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration process which uses standard home water pressure to push water through its semi-permeable membrane. Suspended particles and materials of high molecular weight are unable to pass through the 0.02 micron UF ultrafiltration membrane, allowing only fresh clean water and dissolved minerals to pass through.

how ultrafiltration membranes work

Historically, the separation process of ultrafiltration has been used in large municipal water treatment plants and hospitals; however through advances in technology, it is now available to you as a powerful under sink water filtration system in your home.
Benefits of Water Ultrafiltration: Keeps the good minerals you want in your water, Requires no holding tank, and produces no waste water.

Ultrafiltration treatment is capable of running at low water pressures and does not require a separate water holding tank, does not alter the pH of your water, and does not require electricity.

Steam Water Distiller Systems

When using a Juicer or a Blender, Water Distillers are a great source for clean and pure water. If you are creating delicious smoothies or juices with fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as wheatgrass, purified Distilled water is the only logical choice. It provides you with the most nutritional drink possible with the greatest taste!

How Steam Distiller Systems Work

As we are all aware, fresh water is vital to human survival, and it is estimated that the total amount of fresh water that is accessible to humankind is less than 1%. Common sense would make us ask that, if less than 1% of the water on earth is fresh, shouldn't we have depleted this supply a long time ago? Thankfully for us, the earth's natural water cycle process helps to create new fresh water daily. We all remember the steps of this process from grade school…
How Earth's Water Cycle Works
  1. The sun, which is the engine of the water cycle, heats salt water in the world's oceans
  2. Water evaporates as vapor into the air, leaving behind any sediment (such as salt)
  3. Rising air currents take the vapor up into the atmosphere where it cools and subsequently condenses into clouds. Air currents in the atmosphere then move these clouds, allowing the water modules to collide, grow, and fall from the sky as precipitation.

People have studied and perfected nature's process of producing fresh water, and miniaturized it into a water system we can all use to produce 99% pure water. This eco-friendly process is called water distillation. Water distillation systems can be as small as a countertop water distiller, or as large as a fully automatic water distiller. A home water distiller works in much the same way that nature's water cycle works:
How Water Distillers Work
  1. Water in the distiller is first heated / boiled (like the Sun heating the world's oceans), killing the bacteria and viruses
  2. Pure water vapor (steam) rises, leaving behind the impurities (evaporation)
  3. Water then condenses into drops (precipitation) and is collected in a clean container for later use

What does a Steam Water Distiller Remove from the Water ?

Many of us use some form of water filtration in our homes, such as refrigerator water filters or reverse osmosis systems. But, for water that is highly contaminated with pollutants, and for the health conscious person, water distillers offer a better solution.

Using distilled water can help create happy plants? The pure distilled water helps to eliminate brown foliage tips and flower pot deposits, plus you get long blooms from flowers.

Why are Water Distillers a better solution for pure water? A steam water distillation system is the one water treatment technology that most completely and consistently removes the widest range of drinking water contaminants, effectively treating your water for more pollutants than any carbon filter or reverse osmosis system.

Unlike the previous mentioned filtration systems, water distillers don't filter the water - they operate by removing the water from the impurities rather than the impurities from the water. Below is a diagram that illustrates the reduction levels of contamination for the different filter and purification systems.

Who uses Steam Water Distiller Systems?

Since the pure water needs of every individual, family, and company are different, a wide selection of systems are available. Individuals and families that live near arid seaside locations, which typically do not have sufficient freshwater, often use distillers for drinking water. Additionally, health conscious families and those who have high levels of water contamination use home water distillation for producing pure drinking and cooking water. Large companies also use distilled water. Many beverage manufacturers use distilled water to ensure a drink's purity and taste. It is also quite common on ships, especially nuclear-powered ships, which require a large supply of distilled water as a coolant. Below is a quick buyers guide for Pure Water Distiller Systems and Waterwise Distillers.

Distilled Water Better than Bottled Water?

Did you know that FDA standards for bottled water are more loosely regulated than the EPA standards for tap water? Did you know that two of the biggest selling bottled waters in the world are just filtered tap water, repackaged? Lastly, did you know that between 1990 and 2007 there were 96 recalls of bottled water for contamination of mold, benzene, coliform, and microbes?

Did you know water from a steam distilled system is great for fish tanks? It helps keep aquariums clean, clear, and chlorine free. Also dogs, cats, and birds can enjoy the same pure water benefits as their human friends.

Using Steam Eco-Friendly Distilled Water does not have to Cost Extra!

Not only can you avoid the above pitfalls, but you can actually save money using distilled water over bottled water. Below is a cost comparison chart illustrating the savings of using a water distiller over bottled water.

The Revolutionary Salt-Free Water Softening Conditioner

Crystal photo taken with a electron microscope

The FUTURA Salt-Free water softener/conditioner is a new advancement in water treatment technology that softens water without the use of salt or corrosive chemicals. This system uses an advanced ceramic media that effectively attracts and neutralizes hard water properties without the need for regeneration, backwashing, or electricity. When water comes into contact with the catalytic surface of the media, hard water agents calcium (CaCO3) and magnesium become attached to the ceramic granules and are instantly converted into a scale resistant crystalline form. These crystals are harmless, neutral, heat resistant, and completely stable and will not attach to any surfaces like your pipes and heaters to cause lime deposits. When the crystals reach a size in the range of nano-meters (one billionth the size of a meter) they detach and are carried away by the water flow. These nano-crystals are relatively insoluble, effectively isolating hardness up to 25 grains/gal. (420 mg/L) from the water chemistry.

FUTURA's catalytic granules are non-sacrificial and are not consumed in the conversion process, thus resulting in its exceptional long life and durability. In effect, these systems provide many of the same benefits of a conventional water softener such as reduced soap use, scale removal, and cleaner clothes-without the troublesome maintenance, costs and pollution of salt-based systems.

You can enjoy all these benefits:

  • Feel the difference of softer skin and smoother hair after every shower.

  • Clothes become softer, cleaner, brighter and last longer while requiring less detergent.

  • Reduced hard water spots on glasses, bathtubs, mirrors, tiles, cars, or any plumbing fixtures- makes all your cleaning and scrubbing much easier.

  • Extends the life while reducing the maintenance of icemakers, coffee machines, dishwashers, water heaters, and laundry equipment.

More Frequently Asked Questions about FUTURA

TIPS ON CHOOSING A SYSTEM: To assure your highest satisfaction, please choose the right size (gpm) of the softener that at least matches your household peak demand flow rate. For example, if the most water you will use is to take a shower while doing your laundry and running the dishwasher simultaneously, then your peak demand will be (3+3+3=9) 9 gpm. This means our smallest FUTURA system, rated at 10 gpm, is sufficient for you.
