If not, the inside of your water cooler may very well look like this. A scary thought, particularly for those returning to the office post-COVID whose water coolers may have been sitting unused for an extended period of time. The US Department of Energy recommends regular cleanings, with a bleach solution, with every other bottle change or every 6 weeks, whichever comes first, to reduce bacteria and biofilm buildup. Does your workplace have an appointed person overseeing the cleaning process?
The truth is, every time that spigot is touched, your water becomes compromised. Because bottled water coolers are open systems, your water is being cross contaminated from moment a new bottle is placed in the unit. That "glug glug" sound you hear? That's the air around you, and everything it's carrying, being introduced into the water that will eventually find it's way into your cup.
Our Pure Water Systems, by contrast, are closed systems. Meaning that air doesn't touch your water inside the cooler. Instead, our reverse osmosis system takes your water through a multi-stage purification process which filters out dirt, rust, chlorine, and arsenic, as well as bacteria and viruses before injecting your water with activated oxygen, alkalinity, minerals and electrolytes. In addition, our antimicrobial surface prevents germs and bacteria from colonizing on the cooler while the optional foot pedal creates true touchless dispensing.
