Water is the essence of life, and staying properly hydrated is crucial for our overall health and well-being. Enter water coolers – the convenient and efficient way to access clean, cold water whenever you need it. In this blog, we’ll delve into the benefits and potential health concerns associated with water coolers.
Water coolers offer instant access to chilled water without the need to wait for water bottles to cool in the fridge. This is especially convenient on hot or busy days. It’s also cost-effective to have a water cooler in your home or office as it reduces the need for single-use plastic bottles, helping both your wallet and the environment. At Cairns Natural Spring Water, our 15-litre cooler bottles are sanitised and reused hundreds of times as part of our eco-friendly initiative. By using a water cooler, you contribute to reducing the staggering amount of plastic waste generated by single-use bottled water consumption. This eco-friendly choice helps protect our oceans and cut down on landfill.
Having a water cooler at your disposal encourages consistent hydration, which is essential for various bodily functions including digestion, circulation, and temperature regulation. Water coolers often provide cold, room temperature, and hot water options. This versatility accommodates various preferences and uses such as drinking, cooking, or making beverages.
While water coolers offer numerous benefits and convenience, inadequate cleaning can lead to the growth of bacteria and mould. Regular cleaning and maintenance are vital to ensure the water remains safe to drink. If you are concerned about water coolers in high-touch areas, we also offer Covid-safe coolers with contactless dispensers.
When replacing your bottle ensure the bottle neck and cap are clean to prevent contamination. Additionally, wash your hands before handling bottles or using the dispenser. Watch here for our guide on how to clean your cooler.
Position your water cooler in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight, as warmth and poor ventilation can encourage bacterial growth. Regularly disinfect surfaces that come into contact with hands.
If you come across any issues with your water cooler, such as performance issues, leaks, or unusual noises, seek professional repair services to ensure optimal functionality and safety.
Water coolers offer a host of benefits, from convenience and cost-effectiveness to environmental friendliness. By being mindful of proper cleaning, maintenance, and hygiene practices, you can enjoy the refreshing benefits of a water cooler while safeguarding your health.
Stay hydrated, stay healthy!
