How Much is Bottled Water Delivery Costing your Company?

As a business owner or office manager, there are several compelling reasons to choose a water dispenser over a water cooler for your company.

Water coolers with five gallon water bottles can result in frequent deliveries and accumulating delivery fees.

Modern dispensers often come with filtration systems that can improve the taste and water quality, promoting healthier hydration practices among your employees. Also, most dispensers have hot, cold, and ambient water options, making them a versatile choice for businesses.

The Cost of Bottled Water Delivery

The total cost of bottled water delivery can be significantly high when you factor in all the elements. Apart from the obvious water cost, delivery fees vary widely depending on the volume and frequency of your orders.

Beyond the monetary expense, there’s also the environmental cost to consider. Production, transportation, and disposal of empty bottles contribute to environmental degradation.

Moreover, the time spent by employees managing deliveries, from coordinating with the supplier to handling and storing the five gallon water bottles, could be better spent on their primary responsibilities, indirectly affecting employee productivity and the company’s bottom line.

In sum, your company’s actual cost of bottled water delivery might be far more than you realize.

Benefits of investing in a water filtration system rather than paying for bottled water delivery

Investing in a water filtration dispenser has several benefits compared to paying for bottled water delivery services.

First and foremost, a water filtration system high quality water on demand without the need for constant bottle replacement or can save money by eliminating the need for bottled water delivery services. It also reduces the need for storage space for individual bottles or multiple five gallon bottles simultaneously.

Moreover, water filtration systems are environmentally friendly. They reduce the reliance on plastic bottles, which often end up in landfills or oceans, causing significant environmental harm. They also eliminate the carbon emissions associated with the delivery of bottled water.

Lastly, a water filtration system can increase employee satisfaction. Access to clean, filtered water shows you care about your employees’ health and well-being. This can boost morale and productivity in the workplace.

Therefore, investing in a water filtration system can be a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and health-conscious alternative to bottled water delivery.

How to Calculate the Cost of Bottled Water Delivery

The hidden costs of purchasing and disposing of plastic bottles each month are manifold and can have a significant impact on your company’s bottom line. When you purchase bottled water, you incur costs beyond the price of the water itself. These include storage costs, as storing large amounts of bottled water requires significant space that could be utilized for more productive purposes.

The disposal of plastic bottles also comes with its own set of costs. If your company is committed to environmentally responsible practices, properly recycling these bottles can be costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, if your company is located in a jurisdiction with strict waste disposal regulations, you might be subject to fines or fees if the bottles are not correctly disposed of.

Another hidden cost is the potential reputational cost. As more consumers and businesses become environmentally conscious, companies that rely heavily on single-use plastics, such as bottled water, can be perceived negatively. This can affect your company’s reputation and potentially lead to lost business opportunities. Therefore, the hidden costs of purchasing and disposing of plastic bottles cannot be ignored and should factor into the decision-making process when considering your company’s water supply options.

The Environmental Impact of Plastic Bottle Waste

The environmental impact of plastic bottle waste is immense. Every year, millions of tons of plastic waste, including water bottles, end up in landfills, oceans, and other natural habitats, causing widespread environmental damage. Plastic degradation is a slow process and can take hundreds of years, leading to long-lasting pollution. Plastic waste also severely threatens marine life as they often mistake it for food, leading to fatal consequences.

Additionally, the production of plastic bottles consumes vast amounts of energy and contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, exacerbating climate change. In essence, the environmental cost of bottled water extends far beyond the upfront financial costs and underscores the urgent need for more sustainable practices.

Decide the type of filtration system that is best for your needs

PureAquaTek offers exceptional customer service and multiple options for different filtration systems. Each of the systems offers both hot and cold options, and they offer additional services.

Tek-12- Best of BOTH worlds: water and ice together in one. The Tek-12 uses state-of-the-art reverse osmosis purification to produce bullet ice and hot, cold, and ambient water from recessed spigots.

Reverse osmosis (RO) purification is paramount when considering a filtration system for your water needs. This process works by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane under pressure, which will remove impurities, including harmful bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and chemical pollutants. As a result, RO systems deliver clean, safe, and high-quality drinking water.

Tek-9- Hygienic and ergonomic, Tek-9 flourishes in all environments — from the boardroom to the recreation center. Its compact size, large dispensing area, multiple water options, and LED UV to maintain system cleanliness make the W9 our most innovative model.

This method uses ultraviolet (UV) light, particularly UVC light, known for its disinfecting properties. When the water passes through the LED UV chamber, the UV light destroys the DNA of the bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms, rendering them harmless and preventing their reproduction. This process maintains the system’s hygiene by ensuring your water is free from harmful pathogens. LED UV systems are highly effective, energy-efficient, and require minimal maintenance, adding to the overall value of your water filtration system.

Tek-DMI- The Tek-DMI features the latest filtration and LED UV technologies to provide a continuous supply of clean and fresh nugget ice alongside filtered water in a cooler-sized format without the need for bulky five gallon or plastic single-use bottles and clunky ice machines.

PureAquaTek machines are available for lease, and their team provides office delivery and installs the system for you. As a service provider, they also offer routine maintenance and repair on the leased machines with the service cost. Altogether, it can be less costly than water cooler rental.

By investing in a quality PureAquaTek water dispenser, you can ensure that your team stays well-hydrated and productive. So don’t wait any longer – get a water dispenser for your workspace today!
