Since the launch of th new project to pump 'Zamzam' three years ago, more than 55 million bottles of the holy water have been pumped and distributed world over, a media report said.

Pilgrims at the Grand Mosque make sure they drink as much as possible from Makkah's Zamzam Well and buy containers to take home to family and friends, Al Arabiya reported.

The company responsible for pumping Zamzam water said it had launched early preparations for this year's hajj season – which began this month – by increasing the producing capacity in order to meet demand.

The company also said that these preparations aim to increase its daily production capacity by 50 percent in order to meet the pilgrims' demands.

More than 1.1 million foreign pilgrims have arrived in Makkah for the annual hajj, which all physically and financially able Muslims are required to perform once in their life.

The Zamzam project provides water for more than 6,000 customers a day, that's five customers every minute.

The blessed water is pumped out of the historic well via stainless steel pipes and filtered using ultraviolet technology. It is then transported to the cooling stations before it is distributed.

Millions and millions of people from around the world who come to Makkah drink Zamzam and also take along with them back home. Saudi Arabia takes special care to ship Zamzam water in various parts of the Kingdom including the Holy Mosque in Madinah.

Located inside the Holy Mosque in Makkah and live since centuries, Zamzam not only has historic significance, but time and again it is scientifically proved that the Water has in it ingredients that are not part of normal water.
