Home Water Coolers: Not Just for Luxury Homes Anymore

15 February, 2011 (16:46) | Water Coolers | By: admin

Bottled water in the United States may be a billion-dollar business, but you don’t have to be a billionaire to have your own bottled water source. There are many water treatment companies who offer affordable water coolers for any homeowner looking to provide their family and guests safe drinking water. It used to be about luxury for those that could afford it, but today, water coolers can actually save you money instead of buying bottled water as frequently as most Americans do.

In the US alone, 1500 plastic water bottles are consumed every second. Though recycling programs exist almost everywhere, 80% of these bottles will end up in landfills where even the smallest piece of plastic will never biodegrade. Water that could cost mere pennies from the tap or a home water cooler is costing hundreds or even thousands and hitting budgets hard.

Tap water used to be at the top of the news for concerns with contaminants, but after more research was done, bottled water companies aren’t all making the grade either. Studies are taking place to review the purity of the drinking water in the bottles, as well as the wastewater present in the facilities. In addition to contaminants in the water, the plastic used in many bottles isn’t doing anything really good for our bodies either, especially when being reused, frozen, or allowed to sit for any real length of time.

In addition to all the health and environmental advantages, bottleless water coolers have a huge convenience factor. Unlike the old water coolers, there are no heavy bottles to store, carry, or change out. The water cooler also provides either hot water for tea, coffee, or cocoa, or cold water for drinking, juices, or Kool-Aid. All that, at the touch of a button!

A bottleless water cooler is the easiest and surest way to provide your family and guests constant safe drinking water which can handle even the biggest water demands. Water coolers are the affordable and eco-friendly alternative to bottled water.
