Finding the Right Filtration and Purification System for Bottled Water Business

Hello Brennan,

Thank you for contacting us through our website.  You wrote:

“Hi, I am starting a small bottled water business with a spring source. I  need to purchase a filtration system such as reverse osmosis and a purification system like an ozone system and I need some help figuring out what is right for me. Please have someone email me. Thanks”

We can definitely help you set up a system, but for something like this, the first major question is, how much water do you need in a day?  Reverse osmosis systems are sized based on the desired capacity you need in a given day.

One common way to introduce ozone is to have a large atmospheric storage tank, and distribute ozone into it by means of a small diffuser stone.  In that case, the generator needs to be sized properly according to the size of the storage tank.  Depending on what your demand is and how much water you need, one way to do this is to directly ozonate the treated RO water in the collection storage tank.  This is a relatively simple and straightforward way to accomplish your goal, see below for a reverse osmosis system and an ozone generator that would work together:

EPRO-4500-XP Complete Light Commercial Reverse Osmosis System
Light commercial reverse osmosis system
  • 4500 Gallons Per Day (11.4 cubic meters per day) Heavy-Duty Commercial Reverse Osmosis System with Storage Tank and Repressurization Booster Pump System.
  • This system produces high quality purified water by reverse osmosis thin film (TFC) membrane using a high pressure pump (included).
  • It includes a 300 gallon polyethylene storage tank; a 1/2 HP booster pump and 20 gallon bladder pressure tank with 7.5 gallons of draw-down (pressure switch set to turn on at 20 psi and off at 40 psi).
  • The reverse osmosis system automatically fills the storage tank with purified water.
  • This commercial reverse osmosis system removes total dissolved solids; chlorides; sodium; boron; fluoride; minerals and other salts using high-rejection high quality thin-film reverse osmosis membranes.
  • Unlike light-duty systems this reverse osmosis unit includes a 1.5 HP heavy-duty stainless steel multistage centrifugal pump ensuring long life and better performance than standard rotary vane pumps.
  • The unit comes with a white powder-coated steel frame; stainless steel braided hoses; inlet solenoid valve; and stainless steel concentrate control valve.

That’s just a very basic idea of it though, we can’t tell you more without knowing about your water demand.  Please feel free to email back or just give a call to discuss.
