Mineral water is not famous in Indonesia?

When you go to any country in the world and get thirsty, what would you buy when you want to drink water? You would ask for mineral water, right?

In Indonesia, if you ask for mineral water, people will be confused. Why? It is not because there is no mineral water in Indonesia. The tap water in Indonesia is also forbidden to be drunk. (See this post to know why)
It is because most Indonesian people do not know what mineral water is.

Indonesian people identify mineral water as AQUA. Yes, they identify it as one of the brands because the most famous and bought brand of mineral water in Indonesia is AQUA.
They also identify it as ‘air putih‘ (white water) even though surely they know the water is not white but transparent.

But still, sometimes even if you ask for an AQUA, you would not get AQUA but other brands like 2tang and Club. It is almost like you are asking for a coca cola but the seller asks “Is sprite okay?” Despite this issue, almost all Indonesian people do not care with what brand they drink.

Now you know which brand to invest, right?

Drinking tap water in Indonesia? Don’t even think about it

I am sure most of you drink tap water in your home to fulfill your thirst everyday. The water is pristine, clear, and refreshing, right?
It is also cheaper than buying bottled water or gallons in long term.

BUT in Indonesia, if you don’t want to get stomachache, diarrhea, hard time in the toilet, and other nasty diseases, don’t even try drinking tap water.
Why? because almost all Indonesian houses use ground water for their tap water, and it is not the clean ground water from the mountain or fountain.

That’s why bottled water in Indonesia is very popular and gives much profit. The water filters technology is growing too, slowly but sure.
So, investing on water companies and water filter companies are good choices.
