Healthy Benefits

The average human body consists of more than 65% water and is hence an essential element for all of its organs to function properly. Each day the body loses water through normal body functions, which need to be replaced to maintain its adequate hydration.

Many water cooler companies talk in general terms about the health benefits of having a water cooler around the office or home environment. Prestige Spring Water Delivery Company has developed this concept further - as part of our initial conversations we take details of the number of people per water cooler and over the course of the year we monitor which water coolers are being used heavily or not. We will then advise clients of potential problems they have with dehydration in the office or home.
