Abstract - The water treatment piping system functions to carry out a filtering water process which aims to provide clean water quality before being used in the production, utilization, and domestic processes of food and beverage industry. There are two filter tanks, namely sand filters and carbon filters. Sand filter tanks are water filtration media that use sand and other granular media (such as gravel or anthracite) to remove impurities in water. Carbon filter tanks are water filtration media that use activated carbon to remove contaminants and dirt. Analysis method is starting by calculating the minimum wall thickness (Tm), flow rate (Q), head losses (HL), and pump efficiency to determine the optimal design in the water filtering process. As well as an analysis with the Pipe Flow Expert (PFE) in each design with variations made to determine the design optimization. And project management plan analysis is done to find out the scheduling and duration of the project. The results of this research it is known the most optimal design is design 3 with a variation of NPS 2 inch pipe diameter using Ebara 50x40 FS2HA pump (Company requirement). It is known that the minimum wall thickness (Tm) is 0.1293 inch. For the flow rate value (Q) which is 18.36 m3 / h. For the head losses (HL) value that is 1.63 m. while for the pump efficiency value of 52.68%, it is known that the efficiency value is in accordance with the highest value range of the efficiency of the Ebara 50x40 FS2HA (Company requirement) pump. And there is a piping back wash system for cleaning the inner tank.
