Dihydrogen monoxide, otherwise known as H20, while not as interesting to the palate as Heineken or Cherry Coke Zero, is nonetheless necessary for survival. Like the earth, we are composed of at least 70% of it. Water comes in a variety of packages and delivery methods such as the kitchen tap, garden hose, and those pollutive 12-ounce plastic bottles. Unfortunately, in many urban environments, tap water contains unwelcome additives such as lead, chlorine and pharmaceutical waste. Many discerning water drinkers have opted for water delivery services as a way to avoid harmful additives, or contributing to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Water delivery services usually operate on a contractual basis (monthly, yearly or multi-year). When the customer is done with their water, they leave the bottle outside. It is then replaced by a full bottle, and attached to the cooler. Rinse and repeat.

Water delivery services operate in nearly every city and town in the Western world. They deliver five-gallon containers of refreshment to homes, schools, offices and gyms to name a few—basically anyplace people gather. There’s a good reason why “water cooler conversations” have become a trope. Water delivery services could run independently or on a franchise model. A multiplicity of product offerings, such as spring water, or distilled water could bolster the service profile. In any case, is necessary for any water delivery service to understand their customer base, the distribution between homes and businesses, and what kind of water their customers drink. An effective marketing campaign in the form of local targeted, local online advertising or door hangers can alert locals to a new, competitive water service. Many water delivery businesses run using on-premise software or software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms designed to handle accounting, online scheduling, invoicing and billing.
