Drinking water is hard to come by if all you do is rely on the plumbing of your own home. In the United States, there are a lot of people who use tap water as a source of drinking water as their plumbing is more regulated by the government. It is not safe to say that the standards of a first-world country is the same in a third-world country such as the Philippines.
Therefore, the rise of water refilling stations who provide safe and drinkable water is a blessing for many, as they also come at an affordable price. LivingWater is one such company that has been able to corner the market and turn such business into a profitable venture.

History of LivingWater Franchise
LivingWater System, Inc., previously known as the LivingWater Filtration and Water Refilling Station, was established in October of 2004 as a sole proprietorship company. The company is not only responsible for the refill and delivery of water to subdivisions but other services as well. This include being the supplier and distributor of Ion-Exchange equipment, R.O. Dialysis, Ultraviolet Disinfection System, Ozone Generator System, Reverse Osmosis System, Alkaline Ionizers, Water Oxygenators, Water filtration, and Alkaline Systems in the Philippines.
Initially starting as a water refilling station with a 3-in-1 system – purified water, mineral water, and alkaline water – it was the first to introduce such combination in the country, covering customers around Manila, Makati, Quezon, Taguig, Las Pinas, and Paranque City with an average of 1,650 gallons of water distributed every day.
Matching the growing demand of the service and expanding the business through the low cost opportunity of franchising, the company underwent franchising as a water refilling station in January of 2005, just several months after it opened.
As of 2010, it has provided over 1,800 franchisees nationwide, not just stations but safe and potable water for everyone to use!
