How A Water Vending Machine Works

You can order a high quality water vending ATM machine from Peupe Technologies by calling us on 0728569060 or email info@peupetechnologies.com.

A water vending machine has has various components which work together to form what is known as an embedded systems. The components include a controller (PLC), flow sensors, keypad, water filters, pumps among other items.

The business owner can either choose to go with a machine that has a keypad only,  keypad plus Lipa na Mpesa or keypad plus coin acceptor. These combinations determine the type of payment the machine will accept.

Keypad only is for cash payments only. When the buyer hands over the cash to the water shop attendant, the attendant just enters the amount on the keypad and presses two more buttons to confirm the amount and the machine calculates and dispenses the respective volume of water to the buyer’s container. The PLC is programmed such that it does price and volume computations very accurately.

For the water vending machine with Lipa na Mpesa feature, it has a dedicated Till Number sim card and anytime some makes a payment to that specific Till Number, the machine detects the transaction automatically and displays on the screen. When the buyer presses the specified button, the machine dispenses water equivalent to the amount paid. This means that the machine can be self service. For these types of machines, in case the buyer does not have Mpesa, the shop attendant can just use the keypad and machine password to serve the customer.

The last working principle of water refill machines, is having a coin acceptor where customers can insert coins and the machine will dispense water equivalent to that amount. A coin operated water vending machine price in Kenya starts at Ksh 100K for a 1 tap machine. This method is getting phased out as coins are not very popular nowadays. We actually do not encourage people to have this type of machine for various reasons.
