The subject of drinking cups has become something of a hot potato over the last year as the world debates the use of plastic and in particular, single use plastic. Bronte Water Coolers recognises this as a real issue and have been busy looking at alternative ways of dispensing your drinking water. The best and
The Bronte Bottling Plant is located close to the historical village of Haworth, near the Bronte Spring. We often talk about deliveries and things happening at Bronte HQ in Honley however, we thought it was about time to share the story about how each 19 litre carboy bottle is fed through the cleaning process, filled and capped...
The 6:30 am alarm heralds the start of another challenging day for Tim, one of the directors at Bronte Water Coolers Ltd. Suitably prepared and dressed for the occasion (sometimes jeans) he arrives at the office to be greeted by a hive of activity. There are Delivery Drivers loading vans whilst others shout for the
Locally born and father of four, Tim has run several companies since 1986, and was the founding member of Bronte Natural Spring Water when the spring was discovered in Haworth in 1992. Seeing an opportunity arising, he moved the company from small packed supermarket bottles and into water coolers in 1997 and today is still
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.
Drinking Water at the correct time of the day maximises its effectiveness on the human body. For instance, a great start to the day is to drink two glasses of water after waking up to help activate the internal organs. During the day drink another glass of water before meals to aid digestion. Drinking water is
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. The Sunday night drama starred Sarah Lancashire, Pam Ferris, Thomas Craig, Tony Haygarth and Leslie Ash. Behind the scenes, other working models were replenishing the thirst of the TV stars and backroom staff alike with chilled Bronte Spring Water. Somebody there must have liked us there as a short time later we got a call from the crew of ‘Shameless’ when they started to film the series in Manchester. Bronte Water Coolers were again seen both in front of and behind the cameras.
Many new ideas and gadgets work their way over from the USA and water coolers were no different when they emerged on our shores in the mid 1990’s. The UK were the first in Europe to embrace this new idea and our continental cousins soon followed suit.
What is Legionella? It’s a bacteria that mostly grows in warm dirty water, and is at its most prolific at around 37 degrees C. It cannot grow in a water cooler as the temperature is well below the 21 degrees it needs to multiply. Only in some larger buildings where drinking water is carried several hundred metres down narrow bore pipe will it generate enough heat to grow.
How cool is that? Possibly more anecdotal than factual, but it has to be said that the summer so far has seen big smiles on the faces of Bronte Water staff as they go about the business of taking orders, preparing new water coolers, bottling extra water from our very own plant in Haworth and delivering bottled water to thirsty customers.
