How to save your business time, money and energy, while improving the health and wellness of staff

11 May 2017

How do you provide drinking water in the workplace – a water cooler, bottled water or perhaps just tap water?

Ask yourself this – is your current water provision cost effective, convenient and appealing enough to keep your staff hydrated?

Research has shown that even a reduction in dehydration levels of as little as 2% of body weight can influence mood, leading to greater feelings of fatigue and reduced levels of alertness. 

Offering staff pure-tasting water in the workplace not only helps to boost hydration, but also helps to improve work productivity, helping staff to perform better mentally and physically, offsetting potential safety risks.

Filtered bottled water may seem like a great solution. However, while this option does indeed offer tastier water than tap water, bottled water is often up to 1000 times more expensive than tap water.

Not only a potential strain on business budgets, there’s also a price to pay when it comes to the environment.

For each bottle of water manufactured, its production uses three times the amount of water than what’s in the actual bottle, while the impact of plastic waste on our environment is hugely damaging.

Moving onto hot drinks. Teas, coffees, hot chocolates and herbal teas are all a crucial part of workplace morale, which in turn boosts productivity.

However you may be shocked to know that office staff waste an average of four working days a year making hot drinks with a kettle, while overfilling kettles wastes £68m in the UK every year.

But there is an alternative. Leading commercial water solutions provider Zip Water UK offers a solution to all these problems, improving the health and wellness of staff, while also saving time, money and energy for the business.

Zip’s market-leading, WRAS-approved HydroTap offers highly filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water at the touch of a button.

With x25 better filtration than a standard water filter jug, the water is crisp, clear and refreshing, and it’s all delivered from a compact under counter unit and high quality tap.

Ease of use and great design come together to make the Zip HydroTap a safe, highly functional workplace drinks solution, with models to suit a wide range of business locations and needs.

Staff will no longer need to waste precious time waiting for the kettle to boil.

HydroTap – with models designed to provide up to 240 cups of filtered boiling water and 175 glasses of filtered chilled/sparkling water per hour – gives workplaces the opportunity to save time and money, while also keeping staff hydrated and consequently, motivated and productive.

It’s also the energy efficient choice. Power-Pulse, HydroTap’s inbuilt smart technology, saves power and water wastage, delivering precise amounts of energy to the element, without the usual spikes associated with other similar products.

What’s more, for facilities managers that are short on time, Zip’s service is as impressive as its products.

HydroCare maintenance plans provide peace of mind, as does a two-year onsite parts and labour warranty across all G4 HydroTap appliances.

And with 67 directly employed engineers ready to assist with any maintenance query, Zip has the largest support network in the UK, giving you a prompt, headache-free efficient service.

The company also offers free site surveys on request, filter and replacement part packages, and 24hr same day call out inside M25 if called before 12pm.
