Point of Use Water Coolers Save Money

 
Vertex PWC-2000R Point of Use Water Cooler

Point of Use water coolers can save business owners between $470 and $16,850 over 5 years depending on the size of the office. Estimates on 5 gallon water bottle consumption state that an office of 10 people could consume 4 to 5 water bottles per month or 1 bottle per week. A busy office of nearly 40 people potentially could consume 20 bottles per month or 5 bottles per week and a large office of 70 people could consume over 40 bottles per month of 10 bottles per week or more.

Rates for bottled water delivery and service add up fast especially over time and as the office grows. Even though a Point of Use water cooler is a more expensive unit up front, there are no service contracts, no monthly water bottle fees, and no need to store and lift the heavy 5 gallon water bottles.

Because busy office environments consume water faster than at home, they will see the savings faster. But with a smaller less expensive POU water cooler, a household can still enjoy the same money saving benefits.

Below is a table comparing 5 gallon bottle water consumption costs to a mid range point of use water cooler cost.
