The theme for World Water Day 2022 is Groundwater.
From the World Water Day website:
- Groundwater is invisible, but its impact is visible everywhere.
- Out of sight, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives
- Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater.
- As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical.
- We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.
- Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.
The good news is that even if you are not directly involved in this year’s World Water Day, as an AquAid customer, you are already helping with the continued implementation of sustainable water projects utilising ground water, to provide potable water, water to grow crops and water for productive use for thousands of communities in water poor regions across Africa.
With each Mains Fed Water Cooler installation and every bottle of water purchased, we donate a portion of those sales to the charities we have supported for more than twenty-three years: Christian Aid, since 1998 and The Africa Trust – an AquAid founded charity – since 2010.
If you are not yet an AquAid customer, but appreciate how we work, we will be more than happy to help introduce you to our range of water dispensers, Touch-Free water coolers and water boilers.
November is a month chock full of occasions, annual observances, traditions and remembrances.
A brief glance:
01 Nov – All Saints’ Day
02 Nov – All Souls’ Day
04 Nov – Diwali
05 Nov – Guy Fawkes Night
the list goes on.
This may be due to November being a pivotal period of the year as we enter the final transition from late summer to winter and the close of yet another year. Although the dropping temperatures and increase in blustery weather may make it difficult to believe, it’s still officially autumn in November.
With so many observances, traditions and events on the go this month it’s easy to understand that we may let our changing hydration needs slip by the wayside despite there being a simple and cost-effective solution. A solution as simple as switching from a chilled drinking water dispenser to a cool and piping hot drinking water dispenser.
With AquAid, you’re spoilt for choice – we supply a wide range of top-quality water coolers, water boilers and Instant Taps – all backed by our superlative services pre, during and post installation.
We invite you to visit our informative website and browse our water cooler selection, suitable for all industries and any size staff contingent, then contact our helpful team via e-mail, telephone or at the website.
When temperatures decrease to single digits, it’s understandable that our impulse to slow down, exercise less and drink less water, increases.
This impulse, however, isn’t that good for our health and well-being overall. As it happens, there are loads of options we can take in the winter months that actually aren’t that difficult to follow and can keep as summer lean in the process.
I’m not suggesting that you swim the Channel or go running in minus ten degree weather, but if you attend a gym, health fitness club, or simply walk or jog around your area, keep up with it. In cold months, your exertions will keep you nice and toasty while exercising, instead of trying to continuously cool down when you’re exercising in the summer months. Just remember to keep hydrated. You can become just as dehydrated when it’s cold as you can when it’s warmer. Drink water, lots of it.
If you don’t have access to a fitness club, exercise at home – there is tons of information on YouTube; on social media or on the internet in general that can give you adequate instruction on exercise regimes you can follow to keep toned up.
Bulk up with tasty, healthy food
Again, the instinct (which is hard wired into our genetic code) is to eat rich, fatty foods when it’s colder so we can bulk up and insulate ourselves. Thing is, we’re not seals and we don’t live in the Arctic (even if some days if may feel like it). There are loads of options to eat hearty, warming food without packing on the weight.
The food in season right now is plentiful and it makes good sense, because if you eat with the seasons, it keeps your spend on food down, as in-season food is more readily available.
From pears to parsnips and mackerel to mussels, there’s such a wide range food available this autumn, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Do not stop drinking water!
Throughout all of this, keeping up with exercising, eating the right food: the most important cooler weather regime is to keep up with drinking water.
If you are averse to cold water, then drink hot water – hot water infused with lemon or indeed any citrus – is a fantastic get up and go to begin the day.
If you’re dispensing drinking water from your water cooler in your office or workplace and the water’s a bit chilly, you can always adjust the thermostat or opt for a hot & cold water dispenser – AquAid has a wide range of high-quality water coolers, hot water boilers and hot & cold Instant Taps.
This may seem like a daunting prospect, however, here at AquAid, we’re delighted to advise that choosing a Bottled or Mains Water Dispenser to help hydrate you is quite simple. Here’s why:
Experience: With AquAid, you have at your disposal 23 years of our experience in the provision of drinking water dispensers, irrespective of the requirements.

Some time ago, we blogged about how drinking water can increase belly health. As the belly (or stomach) is seen as a second brain, keeping it hydrated is vital, contributing to sustained belly and digestive health and indeed, our body’s health overall.
A few benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach are:
Flushes Toxins – helps in flushing out all the toxins from the body, cleansing the system. It’s also a great way in which to kick-start your metabolism.*
Increases Red Blood Cell population – stimulates the red blood cells to populate at a faster rate, an increase in oxygen reaching your cells, which in turn boosts the energy levels of the body.*
Increases Metabolism speed – can mean an increased metabolic rate of around 25%. This can also lead to a faster digestion, aiding a more healthy weight loss.*
Cleanses Your Bowels – drinking water on an empty stomach helps in cleansing your bowels. It creates an urge to move the bowel and therefore helps to regulate your digestive tract.*
Prevents Kidney Stones – water dilutes the acids and prevents the formation of stones in the kidney. Drinking water can also help prevent bladder infections. However, fluid intake must be carefully monitored should a person have a kidney disease or is on a treatment like dialysis. Always consult with a healthcare professional.
Strengthens Immune System – flushing out all the toxins and preventing infections from spreading through the body. This ultimately strengthens the immune system thereby reducing the likelihood of infections.*
Wherever you require a plumbed in (mainsfed), bottled (bottlefed), water dispenser, hot water boiler or hot or cold Instant Taps for your home, office, workplace or worksite, delivering a constant supply of refreshing drinking water – day and night – contact AquAid Water Coolers.

There are many items used to keep warm externally during when the weather is cold – something we blogged about previously. From furry pets (the best bed warmers), fuzzy socks, heavy coats to hot water bottles, options abound.
Of course, with the advent of the microwave, external body heaters mean we can avoid possible water spillage or leaking as well as negate the possibility of burns filling up a hot water bottle from the kettle. We now have heating pads available containing wheat, buckwheat or flax seed, which may sound like an alcohol brewing starter pack, but it isn’t.
As we’ve covered external body warming, we now look at hot water for warming yourself internally.
This leads us to introduce the AquAid range of water boilers. Each of these high quality, well-designed machines maintain your hot drinking water at an even temperature of 98 °C, thereby ensuring a constant supply of filtered, piping hot drinking water for all your warming hot drinks, combining both practicality and self-service all within a variety of stylish units.
For an alternate hot drinking water solution, we also supply AquAid Instant Taps. These elegant, convenient and environmentally friendly taps are space saving, compact and discreet, providing instantly ready and limitless boiling filtered water at the touch of a button.
Ideal for any workspace, office, remote work location, establishment, medical facility, university, college or school, AquAid Hot Water Boilers and Instant Taps are the perfect hot drinking water solution, meeting your requirements, all while saving you time, energy and money.
