There are certainly more than just three benefits of a bottleless water cooler, but our most popular reasons why satisfied customers switch to this method of office hydration is due to three main areas:
Bottleless Water Coolers Are Cost-Effective
Bottleless water cooler systems, paired with a 9-stage filtration process including reverse osmosis, produce pure, great-tasting water for approximately $0.02/gallon! Compare this with the cost of 5-gallon bottled water, which averages $0.79/gallon, and the savings are huge!
Instead of paying for your water by the bottle, a bottleless water cooler connects right to a tap water supply, which means you not only have an endless source of water but you’ve also rid the planet of all those plastic water bottles. It doesn’t require expensive replacement jugs or neverending service contracts to deliver them, and this also means you have no more storage or lifting of heavy bulky water bottles, no delivery hassles, and no security issues with off-site personnel inside your facilities. Boom! Your world just got a whole lot easier AND cheaper.
Bottleless Water Coolers Are Better For Our Environment
Speaking of plastic water bottles, those seemingly small products have incredibly negative effects on the environment. There are many environmentally wasteful business models, but bottled water is hard to beat. Multinational corporations buy up aquifers in pristine natural settings and truck out semi-trailers filled with natural groundwater every hour. The water is then packaged into containers that are labeled “recyclable”, but in reality, only 10% are ever recycled.
Americans buy nearly 30 billion single-serve bottles of water each year. That’s right – every year! With just 10% recycled, that leaves 27 billion bottles ending up in our landfills…every. single. year.

By switching to a bottleless water cooler, you can contribute to less waste in our trash cans, oceans, and landfills which will ultimately keep a cleaner planet and overall healthier environment.
Bottleless Water Coolers Produce Better Tasting Water
Medical professionals agree that you should hydrate your body with eight 8-oz. glasses of water each day (2 quarts). Almost all tap water in the USA contains chlorine, and drinking 2 quarts of chlorinated tap water does not sound very refreshing. This is where a high-quality water filtration system or drinking water appliance comes in – refreshing you with clean, cool, filtered drinking water that tastes good.
Investing in a quality water filter is an investment in your health, and there are plenty of choices available. Given an offering filled with a wide range of prices, sizes, functions, and add-ons, you are sure to find one that will fit your needs and space.
Keep in mind that your workday doesn’t have to include participating in physical activity in the hot sun in order to get dehydrated. Sedentary office workers are at risk, too, and continuous air conditioning and heating running through the building doesn’t help. Just don’t assume that tap water will do the trick! According to several experts, if you live in the United States there is a 25% chance your tap water is either unsafe to drink or has not been properly monitored for contaminants accordance with federal law.
