Water is one of the most important natural resources that people need. Keeping your staff hydrated with clean drinking water is important for them to be healthy and work more efficiently. There are different ways to enjoy the water, but two of the most commonly used are bottled water dispensers or bottleless water coolers.
The difference between the two is simple. Bottled water dispensers usually have 15-litre bottled water attached to them.
Bottleless water coolers, meanwhile, do not need any bottled water attached to them. Instead, it can be attached to the main water line. The question now is, which is the more cost-effective choice? Let us look at the pros and cons of each.
Comparing Bottled Water Dispenser vs a Bottleless Water Cooler
One good thing about bottled water dispensers is their portability. You can put it anywhere in your location as long as it can be plugged into an electrical outlet. The same cannot be said for the water cooler. It would need to be hooked up to the main water line, so there are limited areas where you can place it. Of course, you would need to have a storage area for bottled water. It would not make sense to only have one or two bottles delivered at a time. You want to have enough so that if ever there is a problem with the delivery, you would not be in danger of running out of water.
Bottleless water coolers do not have this problem, as long as the main water line is functioning, you have access to filtered drinking water all the time.
Bottleless Water coolers are also more environmentally friendly. The material that makes up most bottled water usually ends up in landfills, but a bottleless water cooler does not have any plastic components at all. As for the filtration system, there is no doubt that bottleless water coolers would be able to purify your water and get rid of any contaminants it may have.
Finally, let’s take a look at the cost. Bottleless water coolers win hands down. The average person continues $540 of bottled water each year, so if you have 5 staff, then that’s a yearly cost of $2700. However, you can avoid that cost by choosing a bottleless water cooler. Although it will need to be installed on the main waterline Cooee Water can offer you a $0 standard installation. You will only need to change the filter every six months and it will only cost about $120. Another great advantage of a bottleless water cooler is that the price is fixed each year so you won’t have to worry about bottled water bills going up and down like a rollercoaster.
