The University of Leeds Libraries have a combined total of 2.8 million printed books plus another half a million online available to the 2 million visitors per year who borrow around 3 million items. To enable learning, the university have 3,900 study spaces across its 4 campuses available to students. That’s a lot of students
It’s the one question we are asked more than any other. Not ‘How much water will it produce?’ or ‘What’s the electricity consumption?’ but the size of the drip tray for many is the most important feature! Nobody likes emptying drip trays as our sanitising team often find out on our regular periodic sanitisation visits. You’d be amazed at what can grow in a drip tray in the space of 3 months if not emptied regularly.
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
The big round yellow thing in the sky can only mean one thing, summer is on its way! For many of you reading this it means time to pack the suitcases and head for your favourite destination. For Bronte Water Staff it signifies a start to the ‘silly season’. Not that we’re complaining, we wouldn’t have it any other way, but this is the time of year when drinking water consumption doubles.
Probably not as long as you think ! A mains fed water cooler is connected directly to the mains water supply before being filtered down to one micron and chilled. This has the advantage of taking out any chlorine or sediment in the drinking water to vastly improve the taste of the drink in your
Let’s start at the beginning. The water from your tap is clean and safe to drink, the water authorities have a duty to ensure that it is. In order to make reservoir water safe to drink it needs to go through a treatment process before being dosed with chlorine and sent down miles of pipework to your tap.
Ah yes, that old chestnut! The general opinion seems to weigh heavily towards the POU (point of use or mains fed) dispensers and generally that is the case. For a simple monthly fee a POU water cooler will supply an almost unlimited amount of filtered and chilled drinking water. So in effect you could also use it for filling the kettle (yes, filtered water will always taste better than tap water) and also for watering your plants. Again, filtered water is better than chlorinated tap water for your daffodils!
Here at Bronte Water Coolers we like to adopt the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) whenever we can. However when we get asked to install a a new water cooler in an office, canteen or school we need to determine fairly quickly the needs of the customer and which machines will satisfy those needs. Luckily we will always have a water cooler to satisfy every requirement!
Mains Fed Water Coolers Increasingly Popular The battle of the coolers continues and the growth in popularity of mains fed water coolers continues to march on. Just a mere five or six years ago, mains fed water coolers represented a very small proportion of the half million coolers in the UK they now represent around 50% the total!
