Abstract: Due to management problems in water utilities coupled by poor environmental conditions and occurrence of cholera outbreaks in some areas of the Philippines, a portion of the population have shifted their preference to alternative sources of drinking water. The demand at the water refilling stations - water stores that sell purified water – is now increasing. The quality of purified water conforms with 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. To ensure water safety and prevent waterborne diseases, the government is regulating the operation of water refilling stations. Critical components are required to comply with sanitation standards and should be adequately monitored. These include the water source, the building, the water purification system, the personnel and the handling of product water.
