Water cooler – What You Need To Know

Do you want to buy a water cooler or a water dispenser? Purchasing a water dispenser requires careful consideration, whether it’s for your home or office, and whether you want hot and/or cold water.

In this article, we will be discussing the various features of a bottled or plumbed in water cooler and the benefits each of them provides.

Why invest in a water cooler?

Drinking water is essential for vitality and productivity, especially in the workplace. A water dispenser not only enables your employees to access fresh and, cold water with ease and convenience, but it would save your business money.

Water coolers offer an economical way to drink more water because instead of purchasing many disposable water bottles or running the tap until the water is hot or cold, now your employees and customer can have the desired water easily at the touch of a button. This is also a great way to encourage your employees to drink more water rather than turning to unhealthy alternatives such as sugary drinks.

Investing in a water cooler for your office could provide a very cost-effective solution, reduces single-use plastic bottle waste, and improves sustainability but also, having a refreshment solution like a water cooler gives off a good impression to company customers and visitors in general.

Mainly, there are two types of water dispensers: bottled dispensers and plumbed in dispenser. Both in countertop and standing sizes.  There is plenty of choice available when it comes to these systems, with something to suit all sizes of businesses or homes and for a wide range of budgets.

Plumbed in or Mains fed water coolers

Connecting and unplugging plumbed-in water coolers is relatively easy. You shouldn’t let minor inconveniences stop you as the installation’s only marginally more challenging than attaching a dishwasher or a washing machine hose.

When taken care of, the plumbed-in water coolers are low maintenance and won’t consume any more of your time and energy. Installing a plumbed-in water cooler is the most cost-effective way to supply your office with high-quality water.

A plumbed-in water cooler has the advantage of always being ready to go. There’s no messing around with bottles of water, or places to store them till you need them.

If you are unsure, get a plumbed-in water cooler with an additional built-in filter system. This ensures that your drinking water is free of any unwanted physical or chemical additives, as well as neutralizing and eliminating any lingering odours such as chlorine. A plumbed-in water cooler can provide you with clean, unadulterated water, at any time.


Plumbed in Water Dispensers

If you’re unsure about investing in a plumbed-in cooler, which can seem like a long-term permanent investment, why not consider a bottle-fed water cooler that uses Magnesium Mineralized Water instead?old man drinking water

The advantage of these water dispensers is that you can put them in locations where more people are likely to use them, for example, the reception area is a space where you will find visitors and clients on a daily basis. You can move the office around if you rearrange it. You can pick it up, pack it, and move it with little effort.

At BWT, we make our recyclable bottles from food-grade plastic which, like a glass milk bottle, can be washed, sterilised, and used again and again. Typically, each bottle can be re-used 36 times before it is 100% recycled and turned into plastic pellets then it starts its life all over again as another recyclable product.

Our optimised journey planning ensures we collect your empties whenever we deliver your full ones and of course only when we are in your neighbourhood, reducing unnecessary food miles and emissions.
