We’ve all seen the stainless steel water fountains scattered throughout airports, gyms, schools, and other high-traffic areas— but have you considered installing a water filtration system in your commercial office space?
What is a water filtration system?
Before you install a water filtration system at your commercial facility, it’s essential to first understand the purpose it serves. Water filtering is a method used to filter undesired chemical compounds, organic and inorganic materials, and biological contaminants from water. A water filtration station is a source for building occupants to retrieve clean, potable water in an eco-friendly manner.
What are the benefits of installing an office water filtration system?
1. More cost-effective than providing water bottles or a traditional water jug dispenser
A Home Water Research Study found that filtered water could save you up to 92% compared to the price of providing bottled water for your employees! Their calculations were based on the following data:
- An average bottle of water costs $1.05
- An average filtered water pitcher costs $0.08
2. Reduces plastic waste
According to the Peace Corps it takes an estimated 450 years for 1 plastic water bottle to decompose. Imagine the impact just one employee could make with access to a water filtration station! Many water filtration systems that we install include a small electronic screen that displays the number of fills the system has produced (in other words, plastic water bottle waste is eliminated).
3. Encourages healthy employees
It’s no secret that hydration is a crucial component of a healthy immune system. Having easily-accessible filtered water at your commercial office makes staying hydrated more convenient and cheaper! Employees who feel taken care of are more likely to stay with your company, visit this blog to learn more about the benefits of implementing a corporate wellness program!
4. Less maintenance is required than traditional water jug dispensers
Touchless water filtration stations hook up to your building’s water system, requiring very minimal maintenance throughout the year. On average, you can expect to replace filters every 3,000 gallons, which is the equivalent of 48,000 8-ounce bottle fills.
5. More sanitary than traditional water jug dispensers
Traditional water jug dispensers require physical contact (pushing a lever or button) to dispense water, while the water filtration systems are typically touchless. Minimizing contact reduces the spread of germs and, in turn, keeps employees healthy.
