Offering an adequate supply of fresh, clean drinking water to workers is a legal requirement. A bottleless water system provides many advantages that stretch beyond staying on the right side of regulation, such as cost savings, taste benefits, and being more environmentally friendly.
We’re becoming more aware of the importance of drinking plenty of water. America is full of people toting their huge bottles of water with them as if they’re anticipating a trek through the desert. In fact, on average, we are drinking 38% more water in the U.S. than we did 15 years ago. Encouraging your team to stay hydrated with a fresh supply of purified, filtered water is critical for a productive workforce.
What are the benefits of using a bottleless water system?
When compared with the average cost of a five-gallon water cooler bottle at $0.79 per gallon, a bottleless water cooler system combined with a reverse-osmosis (RO) filter provides your office with a pure, delicious water source for roughly $0.02 per gallon. You’ll have happy, well-hydrated employees and a very cost-effective system. And remember, keeping your workforce hydrated will boost productivity and lessen sluggishness brought on by dehydration.
Most people don’t know that their plastic water bottles are highly susceptible to the Norovirus, which causes diarrhea and vomiting due to its exposed cap. On the other hand, bottleless water systems use state-of-the-art technology to eliminate bacteria before it ever reaches your cup. Bacteria aside, this naturally leaves your water tasting better, but this isn’t the only reason bottleless water systems have a better taste. With a high-quality filtration system that filters your water before every pour, the result is cleaner, crisper, and fresher water. Water delivery systems that refill plastic bottles are more susceptible to chemicals, such as those absorbed through UV rays.
Not only do bottleless systems cut back on the 8 million tons of plastic that end up in the world’s oceans, but they also reduce pollution in other areas. Businesses may spend up to $18.5 billion per year on non-degradable bottled water, which eventually goes to landfills. Additionally, think about the delivery trucks that haul water. Bottleless water systems result in no more wasted gas, no more exhaust pollution, and no more of those terrible carbon emissions.
Office water coolers are more energy efficient, reducing their carbon footprint by about 72% thanks to better filtration systems that your old plastic coolers didn’t have. Bottleless water coolers are as eco-friendly as it comes!
