The introduction of bottled water to us awakened our senses to the importance of drinking clean water. Lots of people in the office or even at home purchase bottled waters to ensure that the water they are drinking is safe. But because of the bottled water’s high cost and limited supply, water coolers were invented. It was first seen in the four corners of the office and now is slowly invading every household and is becoming a basic household appliance for every family. With the popularity of water coolers, more and more consumers are buying this product for their homes or offices.
There are two basic types of coolers being sold in the market, the first is the portable water cooler which we usually have in our homes and the second one is the bottleless water cooler which is usually found on large working place or offices.
From what the name implies, portable coolers can be used anywhere you want as long as there is an electric source where you can plug it. A portable cooler has 2 faucets, one for cold and the other for hot. It uses large bottled water to supply the cooler and is especially perfect for places where plumbing is not allowed. This allows family members to drink H2O anytime they want.
Although portable coolers provide convenience and safety, you should consider several things before buying one. First, the owner must periodically buy large bottled H2O for its supply so you have to consider your budget. Second, some coolers consume large amount of space including the space to place your empty containers aside from the filled containers. The bottled water is also heavy so you need to make sure you are able to lift the container when refilling water. portable keg cooler
Bottleless water coolers, sometimes called plumbed coolers, does not require a bottled water because you simply connect it to the main supply then tap water will pass through a filtering system to ensure the quality of H2O you will drink. This can be an advantage because you have unlimited supply of H20 and don’t need to refill from time to time. Bottleless coolers are mostly found in large offices or in canteens of large companies. It is way cheaper than portable coolers because you don’t need to buy bottled water periodically. You also don’t need to exert effort in replacing empty containers with a filled one. With regards to its disadvantages, installation of this kind of cooler is more complicated than portable coolers. You also cannot bring this type of cooler anywhere.
Fortunately, nowadays, there are new water coolers that can serve as portable water coolers and plumbed coolers at the same time. This can be truly an advantage to all consumers who want to drink clean, safe H2O.
