ABSTRACT

Sachet water consumption and the resultant effect on human health have prompted several studies across Nigeria. Effect of storage time on physico-chemical properties of sachet water ‘a case study Afikpo North LGA, Ebonyi state’ was carried out in this study. Five sachet water brands (SWB) were selected and evaluated for a period of six weeks to investigate the physico-chemical. The concentration of NH4, NO3, NO2, fe, PO4, O2, Ca/Mg, CaCO3 and pH level were determined using Aquanal Fishwater Lab. Turbidity was determined using H188703 turbidimeter. The result obtained indicates that the concentrations of the analyzed properties were within the permissible limit by WHO and NSDWQ. The statistical analysis of p<0.05 significant showed that the selected sachet brands met the standards within six weeks of storage at ambient temperature. In conclusion, the result obtained shows that the sachet water sold in Afikpo North meets with WHO and NSDWQ standard and suitable for drinking purpose.
