Bottle water coolers versus water coolers connected to the main

Water coolers. News 07/05/2013
El Prat de Llobregat, 05th July 2013

Two main water coolers systems coexist in the market to ensure hydration of people in offices and other work or leisure environments. Bottle water coolers are a mature and consolidated segment and there are many companies that use this type of water dispensers. On the other hand, water coolers connected to the public water network (POU) have emerged as an emerging market whose growth rate is constant. What advantages does each of these water coolers offer?

Both water coolers options supply quality water, either by an external supply of mineral or treated water or at the installation site by using filters that remove odors and flavors as well as unwanted components. The water coolers are also responsible for cooling the water, in order to keep it at a temperature suitable for human consumption that should be between 10 and 14 degrees. However, each type of water cooler is designed for a different use.

In the case of bottled water coolers are characterized by their easy installation, and they can be used  easily anywhere  because they only require electrical outlet and  bottles supplied by Canaletas or other brands. The autonomy of this system and the variety of water coolers models that are in Canaletas range make possible to adapt to the needs of each user, ensuring hydration to employees in an efficient and healthy way. Furthermore, Canaletas bottle water coolers feature a large cooling capacity and can supply between 15 and 50 users depending on the model.  

In the case of water coolers installed (POU ) to the main they have to be connected to the public water network but on the other hand they do not depend on bottles, thereby reducing transportation costs and there are no problems of delays in water delivery.  Also made of stainless steel, the water cooler connected to the main is a long lasting and robust option and Canaletas diversity of models can also adapt to any environment, be it a school, a gym or a company. The water cooler connected to the water network demonstrates along the time its great advantages in terms of practicality and economy. Canaletas recommend to use these water coolers with a filter to improve the quality of the water.
