If you're reading this, it seems likely that you've been searching for a home water coolers supplier. You will probably have noticed that there are lots of suppliers out there all competing with each other and offering lots of interesting deals. It can be quite overwhelming and often seem like there's very little to distinguish them from each other. |
This can make choosing very difficult! Thankfully there are a few criteria you can look for to help you make a decision. Here are seven tips which should put you on the right track to selecting a supplier that’s just right for you.
1. Do they provide regular sanitation?
Water coolers that are not regularly sanitised quickly get dirty and un-hygienic, sometimes you may even see algae growing inside the water bottles! Ask any potential supplier if they provide a regular sanitation service and also how they go about sanitising the products.
2. Do they deliver frequently?
Without a frequent delivery schedule you'll find yourself running out of water, so find out what the delivery schedule is and see how flexible they can be for requests slightly outside of their given rota.
3. Do they provide a range of choices?
If you don't have a mains supply you'll need a bottled water cooler, check to see if the supplier has a range of different models, if they don't you might not be able to use their particular model.
4. Do they provide a free, no-obligation trial?
All reputable companies have some form of try before you buy scheme. You might find that having a dispenser in your home office isn't exactly right for you, why not find out before committing to a contract and tying yourself up for a long period of time.
5. Do they install the equipment for you?
Installing a water cooler can be a very tricky job! Especially installing a mains-fed unit (also called a plumbed in water cooler). It’s better that you get a specialise to handle this part so find out if they provide an installation service and if it’s part of the cost or if it will be an extra payment. Obviously, do your best to negotiate a deal where they throw this bit in complimentary!
6. Where do they get their supply from?
Not all water is the same; find out who they get theirs from, what the composition is and if it meets regulatory or environmental requirements. Always better to be safe than sorry!
7. Are they a member of an industry body or organisation?
Members of organisations such as the British Water Cooler Association (BWCA) are more likely to provide a better service because they have to meet strict guidelines on sanitation, quality, professional training and environmental practices. Companies belonging to an established and credible association are also more likely to be legit.
Buying a water cooler for your home is a convenient and healthy choice but you have to do market assessment before signing a binding contract. Take some time to do your homework so you can end up with the best deal around. Then you can reward yourself and your family by enjoying cool, fresh water in your home each day.
