Water Facts

  • You can refill an 8oz glass of water 15,000 times for the same cost as a 6 pack of soda pop. Water also has no sugar and caffeine.
  • 97% of the earth's water is salt water in oceans. Of that, 3% is fresh water and only 1% is available drinking water. The remaining 2% is frozen in polar ice caps.
  • Humans require 2.5 quarts of water a day (from either drinking or eating) to maintain good health.
  • Depending on the conditions, humans can survive without water for an estimated 2 weeks.
  • While usage varies from community to community, Canadians use on average of 183 gallons of water a day from cooking, washing, flushing and watering purposes. The average family turns on the household tap approximately 70-100 times per day.

What's the point in having filtered or bottled water if your water cooler is filled with bacteria?

People spend their hard earned money to buy pure bottled water or to get their water purified. However, it seems almost pointless since in the majority of cases clean pure water gets filthy when it's put into the water cooler. The moist environment inside the water dispenser is the perfect climate to breed bacteria, especially when they're not cleaned often.

There are very few people these days that aren't concerned with bacteria. And recent research shows that almost all water dispensers (62% to 100%) have bacteria counts many times higher than those considered safe by the government. An important study showed that 36% of home water coolers had at least one of the diseases causing pathogenic types of bacteria.

The main reason that water dispensers are in such dirty conditions is that practically no one cleans their coolers often enough. It's just too much work. It's a big process that involves bleach solutions and needs to be timed between bottle changes. Complicated = never gets done.
