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.
