Running a business can be expensive in the current economic climate, and any way to save money is welcomed. In addition to saving money, a smart employer will want to provide good quality water to keep their clients and employees hydrated. Well hydrated employees have better cognitive function, improved memory and get sick less often. So is it possible to provide a quality source of water and save money? It’s not always easy to find a happy balance, but one solution could be water filtration system.
1.Advanced Water Filtration
These types of systems have the most advanced water filtration technology for the cleanest water experience. It’s not unusual to see Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems, sediment filtration and other methods to get the best water possible.
2. More Office Space
When you’re running a business every square foot of space costs money, and if you can put that space to good use or use, it will be more cost efficient. When you install a water filtration system, there is no need to store those large bottles of water that you need for a more traditional water cooler.
3. A Tailored Solution
Many water companies will tailor a water treatment solution to meet your specific business needs. This could include multiple units for different floors or areas in your office space.
4. Bottled Water Savings
You could save an estimated 25-50% on your bottled water costs dependent on the size of your business. Providing bottled water isn’t cheap, bottled water delivered directly to your business may cost $0.79/gal on average. Compare this to a water filtration system at only a couple of cents per gallon; a potential saving of $0.77/gal. If you have a smaller business that employs 10 people that drink 5 gallons of water each day that would be 1,300 gallons per year and you could save $1,001. Of course, this price could vary depending upon your circumstances, but it’s worth investigating the potential savings.
5. Affordable Costs
A water filtration system can be had for a very affordable cost. This is an easy way to get started without a large initial outlay and uncertain results. As we’ve seen the savings made on bottled water alone could potentially fund a new filter system.
6. Display Your Green Credentials
Reducing the plastic waste from plastic water bottles is a great way to help the environment and establish your green credentials. The reduction in waste will also make your custodial or waste removal services cheaper, and you could save even more money.
7. Access to Excellent Water
We’ve already touched on the health benefits that can be enjoyed by drinking healthier water. The water purified by a water filter will taste better, and this will encourage people to drink more. This can only have a positive effect on your business as the symptoms of dehydration, such as fatigue, dizziness and mood swings will be alleviated.
Hopefully, you now understand that there are great reasons to install a water filtration system for your business. A local water treatment specialist will be able to discuss your needs in greater detail and suggest a system that will suit your needs.
