Hydrate Your Way to Health

Hydrate Your Way to Health

The title isn’t just catchy, it’s the literal truth.

More than 90% of Britons experience health issues. What’s worth noting is that many of these health issues can be resolved by simply drinking water more as it may well be that dehydration is the cause.

If you are feeling unwell and are displaying the following symptoms, you may be dehydrated:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin 
  • Feeling tired 
  • Irritability 
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Feeling faint/dizzy 
  • Headache

Often, these symptoms are a direct result of not drinking enough water. The good news here is that by simply increasing how much water you drink which will rehydrate you, your organs are able to function better and not expend further energy sending you signals that they need water.

Remember though, if you are drinking enough water and are hydrating properly – check the easy reference chart at the AquAid website – and you’re still feeling unwell, there may be another cause, so you may want to chat to your health professional.

Of course, as here at AquAid Water Coolers our focus is all about the supply of refreshing bottled-at-source water through our Bottled Water Dispensers and filtered water via our Mains Water Coolers, we’re well aware of the links between hydration and health.  Moreover, by offering a wide range of high quality water dispensers suited for installation in whatever size organisation you may have, we are also able to assist with the provision of safe water resources to thousands of communities who currently do not have access to clean drinking water.

Water Cooler or Water Dispenser – what’s your preference?

Water Cooler or Water Dispenser – what’s your preference?

Whatever your preferred terminology, AquAid provide a wide range of water dispensers (or water cooler dispensers) to our customers.

Installing a water dispenser makes good sense as they offer the user the best quality water at convenient temperatures.

AquAid are one of the largest water dispensing companies in the U.K.

The company was established in 1992, with the now CEO, Paul Searle, going door to door, selling water dispensers to customers at home, and has grown exponentially since these humble beginnings to now providing water cooler dispensers to all market sectors, including small to large companies and construction sites through to schools and dentists; doctors; fitness centres and production companies.

Having a water dispenser on site for any organisation means they are able to offer cool, fresh drinking water to whoever visits them, as well as being able to keep all of those in their organisation properly hydrated.

Numerous studies have shown that keeping hydrated can increase one’s mental and physical performance by as much as 20% – this means enabling a company’s staff to keep properly hydrated throughout their business day and for schools, it means that both the staff and children keep themselves hydrated and the children can better concentrate in class.

The health benefits in being properly hydrated are manifold too. People often mistake thirst for hunger, which can adversely affect their health by their eating too much, when in fact, they should be drinking water, as they don’t realise they are actually dehydrated. Being dehydrated has a proven negative effect on a person in that they are not able to concentrate; they become tired and listless; can be prone to headaches and ill health.

Having a water cooler dispenser in your office, workplace, site, rooms or school means you’ll be able to offer everyone the opportunity to drink water and keep hydrated.

The water cooler dispensers that AquAid have on offer are available in either bottled or mains fed.

The bottled water cooler dispensers are perfect for the smaller businesses or work environments that do not have hundreds of individuals to service.

For larger offices, business centres and schools, the mains fed water coolers are the most practical and cost effective. These units filter and purify the water that comes out of your normal taps, giving you clean and safe water whenever you need it.

Furthermore, the AquAid water cooler dispensers are able to adjust their water temperature, allowing you the opportunity to have hot water for tea and coffee in winter and cool, fresh water in the summer.

With all the benefits that water cooler dispensers offer, why not install one today?

Give the fantastic team at AquAid a call and they will gladly assist you with all your water cooler dispenser needs.

Trivia (more of) British Style

Last year, I blogged about some perhaps lesser known British trivia. There were the 3 ghosts in a manor house – one apparently being an ape and a cheese rolling tradition amongst other fab bits.

This year, we jump back onto that water wagon (all things water, remember) and we explore a few more bits of the trivial:

The national anthem of the United States – ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’- was composed by an Englishman, John Stafford Smith (1750-1836) from Gloucester. For some strange reason, when I was farm labouring in Kent, I used to sing the first few lines of said anthem. More racial memory stuff going on, I wonder?

The claim for the world’s oldest working railway is disputed between Tanfield Railway in County Durham, which oldest section dates from 1725, and Middleton Railway in West Yorkshire, which has been working continuously since 1758. Choo-choo!

The world’s first modern encyclopaedia was Chambers’ Cyclopaedia, or Universal Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, published in 1728 in London. It pre-dates the Encyclopédie of Diderot and D’Alembert by over two decades.

Established in 1734, Bennett’s of Irongate in Derby is the oldest department store in the world, pre-dating by over 100 years the first department stores in the USA, France or other parts of Britain. It is still trading in the original building.

It is in England that the first postage stamps appeared. The first Penny Post was invented by entrepreneur William Dockwra in the 1680’s for delivery of packets within London. The first nation-wide stamp (and first adhesive stamp) was the Penny Black, introduced in 1840 as part of Rowland Hill’s postal reforms. Because Britain was the first country to issue national stamps, British stamps still have the unique distinction of not mentioning the country’s name on them.

The custom of afternoon tea was devised in 1840 by Anna Russell, Duchess of Bedford, who felt the need for an extra meal between lunch and dinner. She began inviting her friends to join her, and the custom quickly spread around British society and throughout the British Empire. Britain’s first tea room was opened in 1864 by the Aerated Bread Company at London Bridge.

We may not do tea to the standard of the Duchess of Bedford’s, but we do offer a rather fine selection of PG Tips amongst other hot drinks, so you can have your own afternoon tea. We supply the hot water dispenser, you supply the fine bone china, pinkie fingers and sarmies.
