Point Of Use vs. 5 Gallon Water Coolers
The water delivery industry speaks about water coolers as being either bottled or bottleless. Traditionally, the blue jug water cooler ruled the market. 5 gallon bottles are iconographic for water delivery. However, in the last 10 years the bottleless water cooler has become a more viable alternative for several reasons.
A bottleless (or filtered) water cooler works by tapping into your building’s existing water supply, thus classifying this as a point of use (POU) system. The water is then piped into the bottleless cooler where it is filtered, chilled or warmed, then dispensed in real time. There is no stagnant water with a POU cooler! The existing water line in your company is filtered for taste and any bacteria it may have, providing higher cost savings than buying water jugs.
The truth is bottled water is not often cleaner than your unfiltered tap water. Countless studies have been produced about the bottled water industry and some of its detriments. From the cost and production of the plastic bottles and the draining of natural resources, to the financial and economic cost of driving water jugs around cities and neighborhoods. It simply doesn’t make sense to use bottle water anymore.
The bottom line: 5 gallon water coolers, once a very popular water dispenser, has been enhanced by POU.
