Water coolers are a regular and important part of office culture. They are a meeting ground and place where unofficial information makes the rounds, office friendships are forged, and procrastination is turned into an art form.
Water coolers are also an ongoing expense, a breeding ground for bacteria, and a drain on the environment. Bottleless water coolers are another approach to the office water cooler that retains all the advantages of a traditional water cooler and none of the disadvantages.
Essentially, bottleless water coolers are hooked directly into the buildings water supply. They include a high level filtration and cooling system providing healthy and cool water for the office. Because bottleless water coolers use the buildings own water supply, the office only needs to pay pennies on the gallon for water, compared to $5 or more per gallon for bottled water. It also saves the expense of delivery.
With bottleless water coolers, offices don’t need to find space to store extra water bottles. Of course, getting rid of water bottles reduces an office’s carbon footprint in a big way. Not just by getting rid of the plastic bottles themselves, but also saving the carbon expense of the bottling process and transportation for the bottles.
Finally, it is nearly impossible to trade out water bottles without some spillage inside the water cooler. This creates a damp environment perfect for breeding bacteria and spreading illness throughout the office. With bottleless water coolers this is never a problem.
What are the Health Benefits of Drinking Purified Water?
Drinking purified water is a simple yet important step you can take to improve your health. Here are four benefits of drinking purified water.
Detox – Your liver works hard to remove toxins from the body, and it uses water. Pure water can absorb and carry away more toxins, making it easier for the liver to keep your body clean.
Weight Gain – Not drinking enough water is a major cause of weight gain. First, because people who are dehydrated tend to eat more than people who are well hydrated. Second, because when we are dehydrated our bodies absorb more carbohydrates and sugars.
No additives – Not all additives are a bad thing. Iodine added to salt has almost entirely ended goiter in the US. Folic acid added to pasta and cereals reduces the risk of some serious prenatal problems. But not all additives are good, and some unintentional additives (like the lead your water picks up from old pipes) are definitely harmful. Drinking purified water allows you to know exactly what you are–or aren’t–taking into your body.
Heal your brain – Dehydration causes poor concentration, loss of focus, reduces comprehension and causes some nasty headaches. It may contribute to depression and other mood disorders. Drinking plenty of purified water can keep your brain working in top condition. These aren’t the only benefits of drinking purified water, but they are important ones. From combating weight gain to getting rid of toxins and putting your brain in gear, purified water can have a powerful impact on your health.
