AquAid Water Coolers: How We Help Our Environment

AquAid Water Coolers: How We Help Our Environment

As today is the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, we decided to highlight a number of other possibly lesser-known advantages you benefit from when you install watercoolers from AquAid.

Kinder to the environment

By using a water cooler dispenser, you are helping to protect our environment. We use billions of individual plastic water bottles each year and millions end up in our rubbish each day. By drinking water from a re-usable water bottle and refilling our water bottles from a water cooler, we can significantly reduce this number. This means that you can still enjoy the convenience of having water with you at all times and be safe in the knowledge that you are lessening the harmful impact on the environment.

More branches local to you

With more than 23 branches positioned across the UK, our multiple distribution centres allow us to be nearer to our customers – shorter delivery distances reduce fuel usage and associated carbon emissions.

Water from source

Our three sources of mineral and spring water, one each in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, were all selected in large part due their central locations, which reduces the carbon footprint associated with the deliveries to our depots.

Creates opportunity and hope

At AquAid, an integral component of our business is helping those in need. This core belief is illustrated in each installation of our Mainsfed Water Coolers and each purchase of Bottled Water. We donate a portion of these revenues to charities that implement safe, sustainable water resources throughout Africa.

Whatever your water cooler requirements are, AquAid have over twenty two years of experience in the provision of the right water cooler for your work space – wherever you’re situated and whatever space you occupy throughout England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day

Ahh, a day that globally makes the hearts of bookworms beat a little faster.  World Literacy Day is more than that, of course.  The rather sad reality according to UNESCO is that ‘at least 750 million youth and adults still cannot read and write and 250 million children are failing to acquire basic literacy skills. This results in an exclusion of low-literate and low-skilled youth and adults from full participation in their communities and societies.’

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines literacy as “the quality or state of being literate: educated … able to read and write.”

As you are no doubt reading this online, the above illiteracy figures may seem incomprehensible, however, there is a high likelihood of there being many people in our own communities who not only cannot read this post, but are unable to read a book, a road sign, an instruction manual, a prescription bottle label or even a cereal box.

At AquAid, we recognise the importance and value of literacy, which is one of the reasons we continue to donate to charities that implement safe water resources. Although one may not initially see a connection between potable water and literacy, they are most definitely linked.

Across Africa, for both boys and girls, water collection can take time away from their education and sometimes even prevent their attending school altogether.

The charities we donate continue to build clean water resources that free up children’s time, enabling more access to education, including learning to read while attending school.

More than freeing up time, nearby access to a safe water resource means children will be better hydrated, and good hydration means the ability to better concentrate and increased cognitive function.

If you would like to know more about how installing an AquAid water cooler translates into the continued implementation of accessible clean water resources for children and communities in need, we invite you to browse the AquAid website or call us on 0800 772 3003 – we’ll be delighted to assist.

AquAid Water Coolers dispense Hot and Cold Water – which is best?

AquAid Water Coolers dispense Hot and Cold Water – which is best?

With the changing weather accompanied by a mix of higher and lower temperatures, where we’re not sure if we would rather drink chilled water or a hot water drink, the good news is there is a simple, cost-effective solution where you can have both from one source.

Installing a hot and cold water dispenser from AquAid is that solution.

We supply a range of high-quality cold and hot water dispensers, each designed to match your drinking water requirements, whether your preference is drinking long tall glasses of chilled water or endless cups of piping hot drinks.

Furthermore, these wonderful benefits are standard in every AquAid Hot and Cold Water Dispenser:

Time saving

At the office, boost productivity with refreshing, hydrating water while also getting your hot water drink faster without having to wait for the kettle to boil for your morning brew.

Space saving

As an example, although the AquAid 400X has sufficient capacity to continuously dispense water on demand, the sleek and slimline design of the unit means it only requires 1 ft2 of space.

Temperature control

All of AquAid’s hot and chilled water dispensers include an adjustable thermostat for accurate temperature control.

Cost saving

Replenishing and replacing chilled bottles of water in a fridge costs money and takes time, as does heating the kettle every time you need hot water for your preferred hot drink. With an AquAid water cooler, your chilled or hot water is kept at the perfect temperature, ready available for dispensing at your convenience.

With all of this good news come the changing weather, things are definitely looking up. Even better news is that we at AquAid have plenty of hot water (not hot air) to keep you warm and fuzzy, alongside chilled water to keep you cool and hydrated – whichever your preference. We have a selection of hot and cold water dispensers to fit into any niche, whether it’s at the office, construction site, medical facility, clubhouse or school.

Hydrate Health – Pinch Yourself!

Hydrate Health – Pinch Yourself!

You did read that right. One of the simplest ways to check how hydrated (or dehydrated for that matter) you are is to:

Pinch yourself. Your hydration level directly affects your skin’s ability to change shape and return to normal. Using your pointer finger and thumb, gently pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold for a few seconds. If the skin takes a while to return to its normal position when you let go, you could be dehydrated. A gentle pinch, mind, the idea is not to hurt yourself.

Reverse the dehydration. Now that you’ve established that you are more dehydrated than you realised, counteraction is easy.

Drink water more. In the current circumstances, good health habits can easily fall by the wayside. Don’t allow this. Whether you work remotely, have returned to your office or formal workplace or are constantly on the go, make sure you always have access to drinking water and carry water with you.

Hydration boosts better function.  Increasing your water intake not only produces a healthier, plumped up skin but also your body and mind’s ability to function better overall.

Water refresh where?  That’s where AquAid come in. For over 22 years, we have been providing an extensive range of high quality water coolers to businesses, work sites and the educational sector across the UK. With more than 23 branches nationwide, we are well equipped to provide the best drinking water solution for your organisation, however large or small your staff contingent. Once installed, our range of water dispensers, from Bottle-Fed and Mains-Fed through to Hot Water Boilers and Instant Taps, each carry a donation to charity, providing safe water resources to millions of people in need in impoverished communities.

Four Fresh New Tips for Better Hydration

Four Fresh New Tips for Better Hydration

Hydrate to break the cycle of stress. There’s no doubt that our stress levels have ramped up significantly this year. Where we are all doing all that we can to be kind, look out for and keep each other safe, dehydration can easily exacerbate stress. The quickest, simplest solution to counteract stress is to maintain good hydration.

As with your mug, ‘own’ your water glass.  Wherever you’re currently working, invest in your own water glass. Whether it’s thick and chunky or tall and elegant, choose something distinctive.  In-between drinking each glassful, leave it on your worktop.  Begin a routine where each time you get up to stretch your legs or take a break, pick up your water glass and head to the water cooler to replenish your water.

Good hydration is the cheapest skin care available. Dehydration is quickly apparent in the condition of our skin. Irrespective of your level of health, your skin shows up dehydration levels through sagging, crinkly skin, flakiness and dryness.  Moisturising your skin is always a good idea, but the best way to keep your skin plumped up and healthy is to drink water.

Make drinking water part of your daily routine, not part of your daily chores. In order to make this feasible, all that’s required is a mind shift reboot. Instead of resenting ‘having’ to drink water (an attitude I am sure applies to many of us), change your thinking. Whether it’s a glass (or two) of water before you begin breakfast, before you brush your teeth or before you make that first cuppa, make sure that drinking water becomes part of your everyday routine. It won’t be long before you notice the improvement in your general well-being.
