Choosing the best water cooler for your business comes down to three main criteria – the capacity you need, the space you have available and the design that suits your environment. Here’s our tips for choosing a water cooler…
The right capacity for your premises
The number of people who will be using your water cooler can help you work out which cooler is right for you.
A 19 litre bottled water cooler will provide approximately 100 cups of water. If you expect to get through that much water very quickly, a plumbed in water cooler may be more suitable, so that you’re not having to change bottles all the time.
Small offices should look for a bottled water cooler like the Crystal Mountain Everest Elite, while larger businesses who get through a lot of water might find a plumbed in cooler like the Oasis Kalix to be more appropriate.
The perfect size
The amount of space available will also affect the water cooler you choose. If space is limited, a slimline or counter top cooler, such as the Oasis Onyx, might be best.
The best design
Stylish or functional? The wide range of coolers available mean it’s easy to find a design that fits in with your workplace.
Top or bottom load
Those opting for a bottled water cooler also need to choose between a top or bottom load cooler. If you struggle lifting bottles, a bottom load cooler is the ideal solution.
We like the Crystal Mountain Storm bottom load cooler, which has the added benefit of a concealed bottle, perfect for situations where the cooler can’t be kept away from light sources and providing a sleeker look for customer-facing locations.
