When is a Bottle Fed Water Cooler right for your requirements?

When is a Bottle Fed Water Cooler right for your requirements?

We have already detailed why an AquAid Mains Fed Water Dispenser may be right for your requirements. In this article, we detail how Bottled Water Coolers and Dispensers may be the right fit for your organisation in place of a mainsfed water dispenser.

Bottled Water Coolers are ideal where portable water or a mains water supply is unavailable. Depending on the dispenser, the bottles can hold two, three or five gallons of water. AquAid provide drinking water solutions for organisations, businesses, worksites, medical, health and educational facilities, large, medium and small.

AquAid’s spring and bottled at source water is drawn from three separate locations, each source of water containing varying quantities of minerals.

The installation an AquAid bottlefed water cooler is simple and straightforward, requiring only a single plug socket. Once installed, there will be a constant supply of refreshing chilled or cool water for you, your staff, customers and visitors.

With branches across the United Kingdom, AquAid is able to provide a fast and effective delivery system.

Water = Energy

Water = Energy

I looked up the 3 Laws of Energy in order to present them in this blog, however, my energy levels are somewhat reduced as I haven’t been drinking water as I usually do and it was a little more difficult than I thought to simplify what these laws entail.

What I do know is that all beings require energy in order to function. In order to function well, humans require fuel and we gain energy from consuming food. In order to extract energy from food, every single cell needs to activate in order for that food to process into energy. At the core of generating this energy, is water.

Water is essential for life – involved in many cellular functions, including energy production. By drinking water at regular intervals throughout the day, you’re already providing your body and brain with an energy boost. Not only does water help stimulate the organs responsible for the digestive function, it lubricates joints and muscles, plumps up our skin, keeps our eyes clear, promotes healthy blood circulation and overall helps our body function at its best.

If you would like to have a steady supply of refreshing drinking water at your convenience, speak to one of our knowledgeable experts at AquAid Water Coolers. We’d be delighted to assist.

Installing an AquAid Water Cooler in a Workplace Bubble

Installing an AquAid Water Cooler in a Workplace Bubble

It’s been a long road for us all and as we approach the summer months and the return (in part) to offices, worksites, educational facilities and at some stage, medical facilities, it’s probably fair to assume that we are all well aware of the importance of implementing hygiene and safety protocols when accessing vital drinking water.

Each AquAid water dispenser is engineered to the highest quality standards. Every water cooler is equipped with advanced hygiene and safety features, as examples:

  • Hygiene guard silver impregnated dispense taps,
  • Non-contact dispense points, 
  • Infrared sensor technology operation, and 
  • ‘Freshield’ anti-microbial moulded components.

Every AquAid Water Cooler, Instant Tap and Hot Water Boiler is installed and maintained by our WHA accredited qualified engineers.

As per the WHA guidelines, we sanitise all bottle-fed water coolers every 3 months and all mains-fed water dispensers every 6 months. Our WHA accredited service technicians perform all services.

AquAid, in line with Government Covid-19 protocols, have remained operational, delivering water across the UK, to essential service locations, including medical facilities and vaccination sites.

Where required, we have also installed additional water coolers where needed for workplace bubbles, thereby ensuring a constant supply of drinking water to each person within the designated bubble.

Top Office/Home Hydration & Health Tips

Top Office/Home Hydration & Health Tips

With so many of us working remotely and our usual workplace habits out the window, it’s no surprise that we may have adopted somewhat unhealthy practises, which are now adversely affecting our health and well-being.

From not eating regularly, snacking when hungry to not taking water cooler breaks; it’s easy for healthy habits to fall by the wayside.

But how do we return to these structured good habits? It’s actually easier than we think.

Begin the day right

As we may no longer be commuting to the office or workplace, we still have that time at our disposal. Time enough to drink a glass of water before or after showering, to eat breakfast and even to prep lunch.

Define a workspace

Space can be a problem when working remotely, especially if you share space with others – be that family or housemates. To be productive in such an environment, it’s important to create an office space that is separate from your home life – even if your office consists of a cleared table or room corner. A designated workspace helps provide a mental and physical trigger that it’s time to leave home and ‘go to’ work.

Swap sitting for moving

Whereas you might not be heading to your office water cooler station to replenish your drinking water, it’s still important to maintain hydration. Even if you have bottled water on your desktop, train yourself to get up, walk around – a water cooler break of your own creation.

Remain social

Isolation can become more attractive the longer you’re at it. The inclination to become Howie or Hetta the Hermit can be overwhelming, but don’t give in to it. Whether it’s allocating time to think tank with colleagues or ‘meet’ and catch up with friends or family, make it happen.

Be negative to stay positive

Implementing boundaries can be hard, but they are doable. Learn to say ‘no’ to well-meaning friends, family or even colleagues who feel that as you’re not in a defined workspace or office, you are readily available. Ignore the temptation to drift over to social media or other online distractions. Rather have a drink of water – maintaining hydration counteracts a loss of focus and helps us concentrate.

The Benefits derived from Drinking Water on an Empty Stomach

The Benefits derived from Drinking Water on an Empty Stomach

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.

Wake Up, Get Up, Water Up and Go!

Wake Up, Get Up, Water Up and Go!

Feeling lethargic during seasonal change is nothing new. How you counter that lethargy though, could be new as well as quite life changing as to how it affects your day.

One of the simplest methods to counteract sleep lethargy impugning on the rest of your day is to drink water as soon as you wake up.

Drinking water first thing in the morning:

Jump-starts your metabolism. The food we consume on a daily basis is metabolised and transported by way of water throughout the body. Having a sufficient amount of water in your system helps fire up your metabolism; it can also help with not eating too much. When we’re not adequately hydrated, we often mistake thirst for hunger, which can lead us to eat more.*

Helps fuel your brain. When it comes to daily productivity, hydration is crucial. The human brain consists of 73% water, so staying hydrated is especially essential for maintaining optimal brain activity. It is, of course, a daylong process, but starting with a glass of water right away is a step in the right direction.

The mornings set the tone for the rest of your day. If you feel sluggish, it will reflect in your morning activities/workouts, productivity at work, in fact, any daytime routine.*

Immediately helps rehydrate the body.  Sleeping for hours is a long time to go without any water consumption. Drinking at least a glass (or two) of water right when you wake up is a good way to quickly rehydrate your body. So before you reach for that cuppa or coffee, rather refresh with water and kick start your day in the right manner.*

Increases your level of alertness. One of the biggest indicators of lethargy or low energy is that you are dehydrated. Because water aids in both body regulation and brain function, it is also closely related to balancing out our moods.

After a long period without anything to eat or drink, the first thing you consume in the morning can be a shock to the body. If that first thing is water, it will get the body working and can boost your alertness and low energy levels.*

Remember AquAid for all your water cooler and fresh drinking water requirements. With our decades of experience, you can rely on our expert knowledge to guide you in which of our high-quality range of water dispensers is the perfect install for your hydration needs.
