What type of water cooler is best?
Staying healthy and with good hydration is key to wellbeing. Advice says our bodies need around 8 glasses or around 2 litres a day for optimum performance and wellbeing. So it is important to keep your team hydrated and in tip top form.
The water cooler which remains one of the most popular ways to stay hydrated.
Bottled water coolers are extremely popular in today’s challenging times and many homes are investing in these affordable products while working from home. The bottles of water are 100% recyclable and with a capacity of 15 litres give you a plentiful supply. Some supermarkets are no longer selling bottled water through online delivery shopping to save space on the vans.
Bottled water is very heavy to carry as well in your shopping so a countertop water cooler at home provides chilled, filtered water for all the family. It also saves buying single-use plastic that ends up in landfill and allows you to refill a reusable bottle, so being kind to the environment as well as your body.
Preparing for business
In the workplace a plumbed in water cooler may be the best option for your office or breakout room. There are many styles and models to choose including countertop and floor standing, with a small footprint that takes up little space.
Plumbed in models deliver a constant fresh, great tasting ambient and/or chilled, filtered water supply and require little maintenance.
As we start to think about life after lockdown we need to be prepared in our places of work to provide adequate hydration points for staff based on capacity and water drinking water requirements.
To avoid clusters of people and observe social distancing may mean you need to have more cooler stations placed around the building. You know how people like to gather at the water cooler for a catch up!
