Bottlefree Water Coolers – VS – Bottle Coolers

February 20, 2017 H2O-SMART

Introducing the Bottle free water cooler!

The old style, office water cooler has been around for decades, most people don’t even give them much thought when they take a glass full of water! But when you tell people there is a better way, their ears usually perk up!

Bottled Water is an unsustainable idea whose time has passed!

The days of bottling water are coming to an end.  Many towns, cities, universities and local gov’t’s are starting to ban bottled water at their facilities and events. Most are aware of the negative environmental impact of bottled water. It has been estimated that it takes 17 million barrels of oil to produce bottled water, plus another 17 million barrels of oil to deliver them, and generates more than 2.5 million tonnes of carbon annually. We all know how many of these bottles end up in our landfills. While banning bottled water is a good thing, drinking straight tap water can be questionable in most areas.  So what is the solution?

Bottle Free coolers Look great and save you money!

Mineral Pro has some ultra modern looking water coolers that have built-in filter systems to produce clean, safe, filtered water – almost like having your own water bottling plant right in your own office! Why are these better you might ask? There are numerous reasons why it makes really good sense to switch your old water cooler to the way of the future with the bottle free version. First and probably most important in today’s economy is cost. Offices typically use anywhere from 4 up to 12 bottles a week, at a cost ranging from $6.00 to $8.00 per bottle, delivered to your office. Typical cost to a business can run from $60.00 per month and very often over a $100 per month for larger offices. Mineral Pro coolers can be purchased from $795.00 and up, depending on the selected filtration unit, and in some areas, can be rented from our dealers for $39.95 per month per cooler and up, based on the number of people in the office and the required filter changes.

Most times a simple annual filter change is all that is required. Bottom-line is you can produce your own water at pennies per litre, compared to a minimum of .30 cents per litre of bottled water that you currently buy from your water store.

Benefits of BottleFree ( in addition to substantial cost saving)

One of the biggest complaints we hear from people using large bottles for their coolers is – who is going to lift the 50 lb bottle to replace an empty one? In offices we very often find they empty their bottle and then delay for a significant time waiting for someone to change, it is a very heavy bottle to lift! The next most common complaint is running out of

The next most common complaint is running out of water, usually when it is hot outside and people are drinking more.   You have to call your water supplier and wait for them to bring you more bottles which can take a few days! Another complaint we hear is the delivery of water bottles to your office from someone using a dolly to transport them and perhaps not taking enough care, resulting in damage to office furniture. Add to this the storage issue of the big bottles, both full and empty. How much space are you wasting at $13.00 per month, per square ft?

Be Sure you are drinking fresh clean water!

Water produced in your bottle free cooler is always made fresh on demand. You are in control of the water you are drinking. Do you know how your bottled water is produced? How long has it been sitting in the plastic jug adding some BPA flavouring to your water? How was it filtered? Has it been sitting in the sun making it susceptible to algae growth? Have any of the people delivering or handling your jugs had a virus/flu and maybe coughed their germs over your jug?  The bottled type system works with an open reservoir for the water storage, thus anyone using the cooler that has a cold/flu can easily spread their germs into the water. Bottletree coolers have a sealed surgical grade, stainless steel reservoir preventing any chance of contamination.
