How Much Does 15L Bottled Water Delivery Cost?
A 15L water bottle for your water cooler can cost anywhere from $11.50 to $15.00 per bottle including delivery. Most spring water companies will have a minimum order of 3 bottles per delivery.
You might be wondering what the cost of buying bottled water is over 12 months. Once you see the total cost you’ll quickly realise why so many Brisbane businesses are ditching their bottled water coolers for bottleless water solutions.
Okay, so here’s the cost of bottled water per year. The average person consumes around 8 cups of water per day, which is almost 2 litres. That is around 520L per year given a 5-day work week. If you do the math, each person will need about 34 x $12.50 (15L bottle) per year totalling a cost of $425 per year for each person. If a business had 5 employees that would be a total yearly cost of $2125 in bottled water. And, then you have the cost of renting or the upfront purchase of a bottled water cooler on top of that.
Switching to a mains-connected or stand-alone water cooler for your home or business is a much smarter option. Firstly, you save a fortune by not having to buy bottled water all the time. Secondly, you cause a less environmental impact on the planet as there is no need for trucks spitting out diesel fumes into our beautiful city of Brisbane to deliver your water.
We all know the importance of water in keeping us healthy. Dehydration can happen if you don’t replenish your body as you go about your activities throughout the day. It’s important to keep your body hydrated with fresh, healthy water.
Why Switching to a Bottleless Water Cooler is a Smarter Option
While bottled water has its benefits, ultimately, switching to a bottleless water cooler is the best choice. What makes this type of water dispenser better?
A bigger cost-saving for you!.
You will be saving money because there is no longer any need for bottled water delivery. After all, the water will come from your existing plumbing. Compared to bottled water, mains-connected water coolers are definitely cheaper. Sure you still have to pay for water usage but at approximately $4 per 1,000 litres to Brisbane council city you can’t argue that it’s far cheaper than bringing in bottled water.
No more heavy lifting or risk of a workplace injury
Bottled water dispensers would need to be refilled once it has been used up. If you have a lot of employees, this might need to be done several times a week. The bottles can be heavy, and there is a possibility that someone might injure their back while lifting the bottles. This can lead to your employee claiming a workplace injury which can be costly.
It is more environmentally friendly.
In this day and age, it’s important that we find ways to buy products that are good for the environment. What makes this type of water cooler the better choice? For one, it leaves a smaller eco-footprint. Bottled water is housed in plastic containers, all of which most just end up in landfills. There’s also the fact that delivery will be done by driving a truck to transport all these containers, and these emit gas which can cause harm to the environment.
You will get to enjoy safer water.
There are many reasons why the water from a bottleless water cooler is safer. One is that there is less risk of germs spreading because there is no need for delivery. Bottled water will need to be brought by personnel, and you know that they go to a lot of locations. The filtration systems also make sure that any harmful chemicals or bacteria are gone. Some systems are standard, but you can also choose some models that use other types of technology to keep the water clean and filtered.
It does not need a lot of maintenance.
Bottled water dispensers will need regular maintenance. They will need to be cleaned every six weeks or every time you change the bottle. There are many steps to this process, and you don’t just wipe something and go on your way. You must have a cleaning solution which can be a combination of bleach and water, although some also use a vinegar solution to disinfect. If you have a big business with lots of employees, you may have to do this several times a month, which is not only time-consuming but a waste of staffing.
While plumbed-in water coolers do require service and maintenance, it is not as much as bottled water dispensers.
