How Does a Water Dispenser Work? Considering a Bottleless Dispenser for your Office

In today’s fast-paced and environmentally-conscious office environments, the need for a bottleless water dispenser is steadily gaining precedence. The traditional water cooler, while functional, imposes a significant burden due to the need for constant bottle replacements, storage issues, and mounting plastic waste.

On the other hand, they offer a sustainable and hassle-free solution. These systems are plumbed directly to the office’s water supply, ensuring constant availability of filtered, clean drinking water without bulky water bottle jugs.

We here at PureAquaTek want you to be thorough when investing in a water dispenser for your office. So the article will give you some things to consider. 

What is a Bottleless Water Dispenser, and How Does it Work?

Modern water dispensers typically include a filtration system to purify the water before it is dispensed, ensuring it is safe and tasty. It draws water from the municipal water supply, passing through the installed filters to remove any impurities, such as sediment. The purified water is then heated or chilled within the dispenser, providing users instant access to hot, cold, or ambient water at their convenience. This system saves space and the hassle of replacing heavy water jugs and promotes sustainability by reducing plastic waste.

Benefits of Having a Bottleless Water Dispenser for Your Office

The benefits of bottleless water dispensers bring numerous advantages. Firstly, it provides employees unlimited access to clean, filtered drinking water, encouraging proper hydration, crucial for maintaining physical health and cognitive function.

When dehydrated, employees may experience fatigue, headaches, and difficulty concentrating, significantly impacting job performance. Cognitive abilities, including alertness, short-term memory, and reasoning, are also negatively affected by inadequate hydration. In addition to health-related concerns, dehydration can create an uncomfortable work environment, leading to decreased morale and increased stress levels. Hence, ensuring employees have easy access to clean and fresh water is crucial for maintaining a healthy and productive work environment.

Secondly, it reduces the need for plastic bottles, demonstrating your commitment to environmental sustainability and potentially enhancing your company’s image. Additionally, it eliminates the need for storing and lifting heavy water jugs, reducing potential injury and freeing up valuable office space.

Lastly, in the long run, water dispensers can be a cost-effective solution as it does away with the ongoing expenses of purchasing large water bottles.

Factors to Consider Before Purchasing

Before investing in your office, there are several key factors to consider. First and foremost, could you assess the quality and efficiency of the filtration system? This is vital as it directly influences the taste and safety of the water.

Secondly, you need to consider the dispenser’s capacity and its ability to meet the demand your office consumes.

Finally, the installation process should be evaluated. Ensure you have a suitable existing water line and the dispenser is connected directly. The installation doesn’t require significant modifications to your office space. Additionally, please consider the dispenser’s design and size to make sure it blends well with your office decor and doesn’t occupy too much space.

How to Properly Maintain and Clean Your Water Dispenser

Maintaining and cleaning your bottleless water dispenser is pivotal in ensuring a consistent supply of safe, clean water. First, please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance and cleaning. Regular filter replacements are a key maintenance aspect, usually required every 6-12 months, depending on the usage level and water quality. 

Moreover, always ensure that the area around the dispenser is clean and free from spills to reduce the risk of contamination. If the dispenser has a separate spout for hot water, caution staff not to touch it as it can be a burn hazard.

By keeping up with regular maintenance and cleaning, you’ll extend the lifespan of your bottleless water dispenser and provide your team with safe, refreshing water every day. Thankfully PureAquaTek takes care of all your maintenance needs, so you don’t have too.
