Do you love a good cup of coffee in the morning while at work? The weather’s getting colder as Thanksgiving approaches, so now is the time to decide: where should you get your morning coffee? Can you prepare it in your office or do you often find yourself going to your local coffee shop or bringing some from home? Maybe you’d like to use your office’s water but find that there’s always some lingering flavor that shouldn’t be part of your coffee experience. If you’re tired of overspending on your morning cup of Joe or using your office’s lackluster water, it may be time for a water upgrade.

What’s in Your Water?

If you find there’s something off about your office’s water, the flavor might depend on where your water comes from and what’s in it. Depending on where your office is in Colorado, you might be faced with extremely hard water or even potentially contaminated water. You can read all about what’s in Denver’s tap water, but here are a few key points:

  • While Denver’s water is one of the cleanest in the nation, there is still the risk of lead entering your water from older plumbing systems.
  • Denver’s water does meet EPA requirements for water quality, but the EPA doesn’t require that all contaminants be removed from your water.
  • Water in Denver is extremely hard if it primarily comes from wells and reservoirs. If your water comes from mountain runoff, your water is more likely to be soft.

Why Should I Invest in a new Office Water System?

If you’re the one in charge of your office’s water, it may be time to upgrade your water system. There are always a few concerns that come with making a big investment like a new water system. You’ll find the benefits of a new water cooler system easily outweigh the cost. Here are just a few of the advantages of a new water cooler system.

Heavy Water Bottles are a Thing of the Past

A new water cooler system doesn’t mean you have to lug big jugs of water into your office every time you need a water refill. Bottleless water cooler systems remove the “pay-as-you-use” pricing and eliminate the need to create storage space for large water bottles. Instead, all you pay is an affordable monthly rate while enjoying both hot or cold water at the touch of a button.

Increased Productivity from Employees

Besides providing great water for your employees as an added perk to working in the office, employees are less likely to leave the office to go purchase water or drinks elsewhere, and waiting for the microwave to heat up a cup of coffee is a thing of the past with immediately hot water that’s the perfect temperature.

Minimal Maintenance

With a new bottleless water cooler system, all it takes is a little bit of cleaning and an annual filter change. That’s it. There’s no need to change bulky water jugs, and there are no hard-to-replace parts. Plus, the systems are energy-efficient, meaning it won’t add much of an extra cost to your monthly energy bill.

Know Exactly What’s in Your Water

Superior’s water cooler systems also come with filtration options so you can know the water you’re drinking is fresh and pure. While some contaminants found in water aren’t necessarily harmful, they can affect the taste of your water, and in turn, affect the taste of your coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

I’m Just an Employee. What can I Do?

If you’re just another employee in your office, you might be wondering how your office’s water supply affects you. Just think about the water you drink throughout the day and the water you use to prepare your coffee, hot chocolate, tea, or cider. Do you like the taste of the water at your work or do you find yourself bringing your own water bottles? If you answered with the second choice, it may be time to consider asking your supervisor or boss for better water. Not only will a water cooler provide great water for you, but it will provide great water for everyone else, too.
