Plumbed in vs Bottled Water Coolers: The Difference
If you consider the Aquazania bottled water cooler, you are opting for quantity over quality. Nothing measures up to the taste offered by Aquazania bottled water. And there are no maintenance costs on our bottled coolers.
Firstly, our modern Aquacoolers are fitted with an internal air filtration system. This system prevents bacteria from entering your machine – negating the possibility of contaminated water, or the infiltration of unwanted contaminants into the machine itself. This system also allows for the preservation of our famous purified water – giving you the best possible taste without any unwanted odours either.
All Aquazania water bottles use a unique, single-use bottle cap; this means that from when your water comes off our production line, until it is inserted into your water cooler, there is no possibility of anything making its way into the bottle, or into the machine once the bottled is replaced.
The water reservoirs housed within the cooler – for both the hot and cold water – is made from food-grade stainless steel. This material is one of the most resistant to the growth of bacteria.
Lastly, the taps located at the front of your water cooler are nano-silver impregnated; nano-silver is gaining notoriety for preventing any type of microbial growth, and this technology is being employed in all types of household equipment – such as water coolers, refrigerators and even washing machines.
Combining all of these measures, your water cooler is not only pro-active in resisting bacterial growth, but also in preserving the taste and quality of your water.
Aquazania also has a large range of Plumbed-In units. These water coolers are plumbed directly into your water mains and offer various levels of filtration, which is absolutely vital for healthy, pure water delivery.
Plumbed-in coolers can serve many more people in a shorter time-frame as it has no limitation of bottle size. You have access to chilled or heated water in a much larger capacity. For instance, a large corporation would find better use out of this than having to wait for hot or cold water from a bottled water cooler.
So here, you are opting for quantity over quality.
Also, some plumbed-in machines offer one thing that bottled-water coolers do not; they are capable of producing hot, cold and ambient temperature water – as well as carbonated water – something to consider if this is one of the things you want form your water cooler.
Maintenance is a key area of differences between various models, but users need to know that there will always be the need for some regular maintenance, and should be prepared for the related costs for plumbed-in coolers. Remember, there are NO maintenance costs for bottle Aquazania Bottled Water Coolers.
Water Cooler Costs Explained
Bottled water coolers VS plumbed-in water coolers, the economics battle: When deciding between bottled water coolers or plumbed-in water coolers, cost is a factor to consider. A plumbed-in water cooler may cost a lot for the machine itself, and is an upfront payment or paid on monthly installments in the case of renting, but the cost thereafter dramatically reduces. The only real costs to consider on a plumbed in water cooler are filter replacements (which may be more regular if your municipal supply water is of considerable low quality), as well as the electricity required to keep the machine running. The cost of municipal water to dispense is of minimal cost, but should also be considered, and perhaps calculated per municipal area.
However, the water quality from a plumbed-in water cooler will never match the quality of a bottled water cooler. The price of a bottled water cooler could also be quite a large amount upfront, or payable in installments when renting.
