Why Should You Invest In An Office Water Cooler?
The Summer months are slowly creeping up on us, with sun and heat comes dehydration! Did you know your body is unable to store water? You lose water through perspiration, urination and even just breathing, it is vital that this water is replaced so that your body can still function at optimum levels. Investing in an office water cooler is the best way to ensure your staff stay hydrated with a continuous supply of cold water to drink 24/7, 365 days a year.
Tips On How To Choose The Best Water Cooler For Your Business?
1. Get The Right Style & Type
This is one of the most important steps, coolers come with two main differences, either bottled or plumbed.
Bottled water coolers are efficient and flexible for providing your staff and customers with easy access to fresh water. They are simple to install and can be located pretty much anywhere, from small offices to busy reception areas, just plug in, pop a bottle (18.5 litres) on and wait for 30 minutes for the water to chill and away you go - perfect for smaller businesses where consumption levels are lower.
If you are lacking in space to store replacement bottles (18.5 litres) or are a larger business with high volume demand then look no further than a plumbed in water cooler. Cost effective and energy efficient, these are connected to the mains water and filtered supplying an endless flow of fresh water without the ongoing drain of buying replacement bottles/storage or the need for a strong body on standby to lift the bottles onto the cooler.
Finally, a plumbed in floor standing water fountain with a bottle filler and drinking bubbler or the modern under counter tap, which elegantly fits into any work surface.
