Reasons to Buy a Water Cooler

Keeping your team refreshed with delicious chilled, filtered drinking water is just the beginning when it comes to the benefits of buying a water cooler. Not only does good hydration improve the health and wellbeing of your team, but there are also a number of business benefits including saving money and improving your green credentials. Below are just a few of the reasons why you should buy a water cooler for your commercial organisation.

Improved Drinking Experience

Though tap water is safe to drink in the UK, it contains quite a lot of chlorine. Whilst this is essential for removing nasty bacteria and microbes from the water, it has a rather unpleasant taste. A plumbed-in water dispenser will filter out chlorine and other impurities before chilling the water to an ideal temperature, providing a much superior drinking experience. By making the drinking process more pleasurable it encourages individuals to drink more, which is fantastic for their physical and mental wellbeing.

Health Benefits

There are many advantages to improving overall hydration, not least that it’s fantastic for your overall health and wellbeing.

Humans are made of 70% water so it’s no surprise that we need to maintain our levels of hydration in order to function correctly. Drinking your recommended 6-8 glasses of water per day (approx. 2 litres) ensures your body can remove waste through urination and perspiration, maintain your core body temperature and cushion your joints.

Practising good hydration is also essential for mental wellbeing and it’s thought that just slight dehydration can drastically affect your mood, your ability to concentrate and your productivity. If you are a business owner, then buying a water dispenser and keeping your team hydrated is a smart investment.

Better for the Environment

Each year Brits get through a staggering 35 million single-use plastic drinks bottles. Whilst many of these are recycled (approximately 19 million), many are not, and either go to landfill or end up in our oceans. Buying a water cooler for your organisation will encourage your team and patrons to use refillable bottles, cups and glasses instead of purchasing bottles of water and other soft drinks. Not only does this help reduce waste but it also contributes to your businesses green credentials - an important factor in attracting both customers and staff.

Money-Saving

Commercial water dispensers are extremely affordable, especially if you opt for a plumbed in solution. Whilst bottled water coolers are slightly cheaper to purchase initially, in the long run, you’ll spend more as you’re required to purchase refills, which start at around £7 per bottle. If however, you are purchasing cases of individually portioned water bottles, then the savings from buying a water cooler will be vast.

Types of Water Dispenser for Sale

With so many different water cooler machines for sale, it can be difficult to know where to start. Below we outline the three main types of water coolers for sale, which will help you to get more of an idea of the sort of water dispensers you’d like to purchase for your business.

Mains Fed Water Dispensers

A mains fed or plumbed in water dispenser draws water from the mains water supply, before filtering and then either boiling or chilling. They are extremely economical and popular in commercial environments where large volumes of drinking water are required, such as large offices, hospitals, gyms and colleges.

Plumbed water coolers are available as freestanding units or desktop dispensers and there are even models available that fit neatly underneath standard kitchen wall cabinets.

Bottled Water Coolers

A bottled water cooler is a fantastic solution for providing fresh, clean chilled water when there’s no plumbing available. Bottled water dispensers are generally floor standing with the bottle mounted on top of the machine, though there are bottom fed versions available that look neater and more stylish. Choose from machines that dispense chilled and ambient or chilled and boiling water directly into your cup or reusable water bottle.

Boiling & Chilled Water Taps

The latest innovation in commercial water solutions, boiling and chilled water taps dispense fresh drinking water from a standard looking tap that’s built into a worktop, with a compact boiling and chilling system located in the cupboard space underneath.

Functional and stylish, boiling and chilled water taps are becoming ever more popular in modern workplaces alongside commercial coffee machines, enabling employers to offer their team members a full suite of refreshments.

Buying a Water Cooler - FAQs

What is a good water cooler to Buy?

The best water cooler for you really depends on the requirements of your organisation. If you’re looking to buy a water cooler then you first need to ask yourself a number of questions. Where would you like the water cooler to be located? Is there a mains water supply available? How many people will the water dispenser serve? What water options would you like available?

We stock a range of machines including bottled water coolers, mains fed dispensers and built-in taps, from a range of leading brands including Oasis, Borg & Overström, Billi, Zip and more.
