It’s Time to Replace Your 5-Gallon Water Jug Dispenser

A water delivery service near you might seem like the most convenient hydration solution for your office. Yet, businesses interested in creating a hygienic work environment may want to consider a more sanitary solution: a bottle-free water cooler. A bottle-free machine for your office is a no-hassle, clean alternative to a 5-gallon water jug dispenser. Here’s why.

A Bottle-Free Cooler is a Convenient Hydration Solution

It’s time to rethink your 5-gallon water delivery service. Constantly having to keep track of your 5-gallon water jug inventory takes time and energy. That’s time and energy you could be spending on other pressing business matters. Moreover, large plastic jugs take up space and create clutter.

Upgrade to a bottle-free cooler that connects right to your building’s water source. Bottle-free coolers feature advanced filtration-technology that delivers clean, great-tasting water every time someone opens the tap. A bottle-free cooler eliminates the need to replace your water source. That means no more germ-filled hands coming in every day to replace your office water jugs.

When it Comes to Cleanliness, the 5-Gallon Water Jug Dispenser Falls Short

Think of how often the water jug in your company’s break room has been cleaned – probably not very often…or maybe even ever? Over the years, a 5-gallon water jug dispenser can become infested with bacterial organisms.[1] Therefore, every time an employee or customer dispenses water from the 5-gallon water cooler in your office, they are introducing their bodies to potentially harmful micro-organisms.

Moreover, a typical 5-gallon water jug dispenser features an “open” system. That means that every time the jug is changed, the water in the bottle and the cooler reservoir are open to airborne toxins, like dirt and micro-organisms, which can contaminate your water. Even worse, the reservoir often develops a build-up of microbial matter called biofilm that can break free and enter the water cooler.

Bottle-free water coolers, however, can have added sanitation features to help keep the germs away. For instance, the Quench Q5 and Q7 Series come with a built-in LED UV light. UV water purification is an effective way to disinfect bacteria from water. The UV rays penetrate harmful pathogens and destroy disease-causing microbes by attacking their genetic core, leaving your workplace water germ-free.[2]

In addition to built-in UV sanitation technology, the Q5 and Q7 also feature antimicrobial surface protection.

A 5-gallon Water Jug Dispenser Does Not Include quenchWATER+

5-step Filtration Process

Our Quench water coolers dispense Quench branded water called quenchWATER+. quenchWATER+ is filtered on demand through our proprietary 5-filter setup, including reverse osmosis (RO). Reverse osmosis uses pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane, removing all contaminants from the water including salts, and fluoride while reducing lead. That means your water is sure to be free from all impurities and harmful chemicals that could cause illness. 

Mineral Additives

quenchWATER+ is mineral-infused and electrolyte-enhanced alkaline water. Electrolytes are minerals that conduct an electrical charge when mixed with water. They help regulate our bodies most essential functions, including nerve signaling, PH balance, muscle contraction, and hydration.[4] The electrolytes added to quenchWATER+ include a blend of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and other healthy minerals that create alkaline-enhanced water. The increased alkalinity in quenchWATER+ allows the body to absorb water more readily and hydrate faster.[5]
