If so our coolers can help… In this time of Covid-19 we all have to be more vigilant with health, & hygiene which presents its own set of challenges in the workplace. If your offices still have a bottled cooler by switching to an aqualeader plumbed-in-unit, you could cut the number of visits to your office by 1500 % per year!
Bottled coolers need the bottled water to be physically delivered to them on a regular basis. In order to fulfil this, there needs to be a bottling plant, a warehouse to store the water, staff to load the vans at the local depot, and delivery drivers to unload the water at your office. Once the bottled water arrives at your place of work, it’s likely one person (maybe in reception) will sign for it, and then someone from facilities might then move the bottles of water to the store location. Then, throughout a period of weeks, there is a chance that several different people will change over the bottles….. Looking at this through the current lens of a pandemic, you can see, that’s a huge amount of people now in contact with the water as it travels from point A to point B, on a very regular basis. And that’s before we even start to consider the servicing of the machines 4 times a year.
By switching to a plumbed-in-unit your business will totally eliminate all of these issues. Yes, that’s right – totally eliminate them… plumbed in coolers are connected to the mains. There is no need for any weekly / monthly deliveries to your office. No water being carried upstairs and no bottles being pulled in and out of the storage room. This means there is no risk of the water itself being a high-risk contact point. No unknown staff from the bottled water cooler company coming to in and out of your offices several times a month.
Bottled coolers as mentioned above need to be serviced 4 times per year. Plumbed in coolers need only to be serviced twice – so again cutting the amount of contact your business and staff have with delivery drivers. If you have a bottled cooler and a twice-monthly delivery of water you will have a delivery driver or a service engineer turn up at your premises almost 30 times per year! By switching to a plumbed-in-cooler this will be reduced to just twice per year. That’s a reduction of 1500%. Plumbed in coolers are cheaper, better for the environment and now it would appear, offer you a huge reduction in the amount of unnecessary contact you or your staff is exposed to.
