WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING AN OFFICE WATER SERVICE
There are many reasons why people choose to use an office water service. In some places, tap water isn’t safe to drink, and employees would need to bring their own water to work. Other times, companies want to eliminate plastic bottles and other single-use plastics. But primarily, a water service provides convenience to employees and gives everyone access to water during long meetings. Plus, offering guests a refreshing glass of water is always a nice touch. Prestige Services offers a selection of budget and environmentally friendly office water services.
WHY USE A WATER SERVICE?
Having clean, fresh water available at work does much more than just keeping employees hydrated in a dry office environment. A water fountain is a place for employees to chat, casually discuss their work, and for creative ideas to flower. In cities where the tap water is not potable or palatable, employees would either have to buy their own water or the company would have to purchase bottled water. Even using traditional bottled water coolers can be costly. But with a water service, people can step out for a quick sip and return to their meeting. Depending on the type of service you’re purchasing, employees can even brew their own tea or coffee!
WATER SERVICE OPTIONS
Your employees don’t have to settle for plain, tap water. In today’s modern world, Prestige Services has many options for you to choose from.
Point-of-use (POU) water filtration service – A point-of-use water filter is the most cost-effective way to clean filtered water for everyone in the office. The process is simple, and there’s no fancy equipment that you need to install. Instead, our technicians tap into your water line and install a point-of-use filter on the faucet; now, everyone in the office can access clean, filtered water! The benefits of getting a POU water filtration service are:
- Cost savings: Drinking filtered tap water costs less than buying more traditional 5-gallon bottles of water or individual water bottles
- Eco-friendly: POU water eliminates the need for plastic bottles. You can even encourage employees to bring their own reusable cups and tumblers.
- Easy to maintain: Prestige Services will come out and replace the filters twice a year (or as needed) as part of our contract with you
Bottleless dispensers – Water dispensers allow people to enjoy hot, cold, and even room temperature beverages. Some dispensers only service hot and cold water, while others, like the borg&overström B3 water dispenser, can dispense cold, hot, and room temperature water. All water is filtered through a POU filter for higher quality and better taste. The b3 dispenser also includes features such as:
- Hygienic touch-sensitive control panel
- Large dispense area
- Direct-chill cooling system
Bevi machines – Looking to add some sparkle to your office water? Bevi machines, both the standup and countertop versions, dispense plain and flavored sparkling water. There are more than a dozen options to choose from. Some popular flavors include:
- Blackberry lime
- Lime Mint
- Strawberry lemongrass
- Key lime
WHAT IF EVERYONE IS THIRSTY ALL THE TIME?
One of the most significant advantages of using a POU water filter or the b3 water dispenser is that consumption won’t change your monthly water service bill! Filters are changed bi-annually and are part of your contract with us. So, unless the tap water in your area is particularly filthy, you won’t need to worry about paying for extra filters.
If you have a Bevi machine, you may need to purchase more CO2 tanks or refill the flavors more often if people drink a lot of sparkling water. But since the water is filtered tap water, just like with a POU water filter or the b3 dispense, there aren’t any additional costs for the water itself.
The weather is warming up quickly, but you can save your employees an uncomfortable (and sweaty) walk to the local convenience store this summer. Contact us to set up your office water service today!
