-- Having healthy and tasty chilled water readily to hand is an important way to make sure people get all the fresh water that's advised for health, reports the UK’s leading vending machine supplier, Kafévend.
About 75% of our bodies are made up of water – but we lose around 4 pints of fluid a day. Doctors recommend 8 glasses of water every day to replace this fluid and keep us in great condition so that, properly hydrated, we feel more alive, have more energy and can concentrate better on the task at hand – which helps to increase our productivity.
In the office, a water cooler is a benefit employees expect in order to have cold drinking water ready to hand. Water cooler dispensers that provide hot water for making instant beverages and soups are also considered a benefit by many employees. A Water cooler dispenser can also be used for making powdered drinks, and have additional spigots and heaters for dispensing hot water for making tea, soup, instant coffee or cocoa. These machines also save on the water bill in areas where you need to run the tap for a while to get the water cold enough to drink and be refreshed.
