In 1997 Skelthwaite village (real name Slaithwaite) was the setting for the TV drama ‘Where The Heart Is’ and was the first time that a Bronte Water Cooler was seen on television when it was used as a prop in the Goddards Paper Disposables office.

You should be able to quench your thirst and restore the fluid balance in your body after having a glass or two of water. But if you feel like you drink
So you thought you were spending too much money on bottled spring water and went ahead and installed a mains fed water cooler. There may be cost savings for sure, but that is only one of the benefits of having your drinking water delivered by pipework.
We take our tap water for granted don’t we? Rain falls from the sky and fills our reservoirs. In turn they feed our dirty brown water to the treatment plant where a lot of science and a little bit of magic turns it into clear and clean potable (drinkable) water. Of course the problem now is how to get it to your tap. This is achieved by
