You never know what kind of water you are getting when you work in an office building. As most buildings are leased, the businesses that occupy them typically don’t have much say in how the facilities are handled, and in many cases, the water out of the tap in the break room is less than appealing for drinking or washing dishes. Having a water service deliver fresh, filtered water to your business guarantees the freshest possible water for everyone who works at or visits your workplace.
Health Benefits of Water
Having free water service will encourage employees to drink more, and reap the benefits of drinking water. With the expense of health insurance, and lost productivity due to days missed because of illness, anything that can be done to help the overall health and well-being of your employees is a good idea. Water is the principal chemical compound of the human body, accounting for approximately sixty percent of body weight. Every part of your body depends on water to function properly. Water flushes out toxins from vital organs, and carries nutrients to cells. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that happens when there’s not enough water in the body to carry out normal functions. Whenever you feel thirsty, there’s a very good chance you are already dehydrated. Even mild dehydration can sap your strength and energy and make you tired and listless. In addition, some bottled water coolers dispense water hot enough for tea or hot drinks, so that water does not have to boiled. So people can make tea, (especially green tea) which has been shown to have many health benefits.
How Much Water is Needed?
Most people have heard the adage that eight glasses of water should be consumed daily. The Institute of Medicine recommends that healthy male adults living in temperate climates need three liters, which is about 13 cups, of liquid per day. The recommended amount for women is approximately three liters per day, which is about nine cups of beverages per day. No single formula is perfect for everyone, but these recommendations are a good starting point. A person’s overall health, where they live, and how active they are should all be considered when determining the perfect amount of liquids that should be consumed daily. Some bottled water coolers dispense water hot enough for tea or hot drinks, so that water does not have to boiled.

According to recent statistics, roughly fifty billion plastic water bottles end in United States landfills every year – that’s almost 140 million everyday! Currently, only approximately 22% of water bottles are recycled. Some other facts:
- It takes 700 years for plastic to decompose
- 17 million barrels of oil are used annually to produce water bottles
- 120 grams of greenhouse gases are produced by one disposable plastic bottle
Most water bottles used by water service companies are recycled at the end of their life-cycle. The recycled plastic is used to make carpet, toys, and other items. You will rarely find large bottled water containers in landfills.
