The key concept of pharmaceutical water storage and distribution design is to ensure that the system does not significantly deteriorate the quality of supplied process water. The system may incorporate process changes, such as temperature and pressure, to suit the end user's requirements, but the overriding factor is to deliver water within the correct validated specifications required for the application.

The major design considerations for pharmaceutical water storage and distribution systems are the quantity and quality of water required, along with the system's installation and operating costs. To maintain water quality, the storage and distribution system should be designed to inhibit microbial growth and to minimise any outside contamination of the circulating water. The fundamental points that help meet such requirements include:
