Filtered water is healthy and great tasting so helps with good hydration habits and helps you drink the recommended 8 glasses a day for health and wellbeing. Staying hydrated is vital for active health, improving productivity, the mind and body, and all-round wellbeing. Staying healthy is so important right now as we fight off infections whether working from home or in the workplace. Plumbed in coolers and fountains make drinking water easy and much more tasty; chilled and filtered. Plumbed in water dispensers are easily connected to the water mains and deliver constant high-quality water, refill after refill. Pristine water that is chilled and filtered tastes so much better than tepid, tap water. Maybe you just find drinking water pretty boring? The statistics confirm that over 80% of us are not drinking enough water to maintain healthy hydration levels. A staggering number of us still admit to drinking no water at all during the day. So what are the consequences? Common symptoms of dehydration include thirst (yes, if you’re thirsty you’re already too dehydrated), dizziness, headaches and fatigue. Research suggests that even mild dehydration can have a significant impact on mood, energy levels and brain function. That mid-afternoon slump could well be because you haven’t had enough water. Not having enough fluids can also lead to digestive problems such as bloating and constipation. So should you be drinking more water? Yes, probably! But if you struggle to glug down the clear stuff, just try filtered water, chilled by the water dispenser or add ice. So refreshing.
The science behind every glassWater, as nature intended is pure and simple. But it doesn’t stay that way for long. By the time drinking water reaches our home or place of work, it can contain many impurities – including chlorine, sediment and scale-forming minerals – with a taste and odour that can taint and contaminate food and drinks. Airborne pollution, deposits from old pipes and chemical exposure all play their part in diluting the purity of water – which may already have been recycled many times over. Chemicals are added to counteract these unwanted additives – further removing the water from its original state.
Fresh, filtered waterIn the hot and cold drinking water appliances that we use to make our coffee, tea and fill our glasses with chilled water, they all benefit from purification and filtration to dispense water with consistency in taste, quality, colour and odour. Regular filter changes, servicing and maintenance also helps extend the equipment lifecycle and keeps your cooler in top working order. Through ion exchange resin, activated carbon and reverse osmosis, advanced filtration technologies remove impurities – creating pure water, as nature intended us to drink.
How to keep your water dispenser cleanLike most things in life to keep your cooler or water dispenser in tip top condition it requires a little bit of regular TLC.
- Sanitisation is the cleaning and sterilisation of the key parts of a cooler or water fountain, especially the tap mechanism. Regular sanitisation increases the lifespan of your water dispenser for optimum operation, energy efficiency and cooling performance. Water dispensed from a properly maintained cooler should be the same quality as the water before it enters the machine.
- Wipes and foam sprays remove biofilm and other bacterial matter.
- Don’t forget the drip tray which harbours bacteria and stagnant water that can be harmful and affect the smell and taste of your drink.
- Purification filters need to be changed every six months – if left water quality deteriorates and can become undrinkable. If you don’t have the time to do this yourself then our engineers offer a nationwide service.
