Why London Needs More Water Coolers

Jun 8, 2008
There is nothing more important than drinking for survival. Many people underestimate the importance of hydration and cleansing the system by drinking plenty of water. In the past when living in London, I have worked in office where there were no water coolers available, and yet other offices had some impressive high tech water coolers. Who would have thought London water coolers were any different from conventional UK made water coolers?

Depending on where you work, London water coolers come fast and efficient, with digital screens to let you know when your water is being dispensed including the temperature. However, normal water coolers are also available in certain offices that do not boast a high budget in supplying fancy equipment for the staff. Normal water coolers tend to be smaller and require refilling every now and again with large bottles that are placed over the top of the dispensing machine.

Within a matter of seconds from pulling on the knob, you are presented with a cool, crisp and fresh glass of water. This is more impressive when you realise that it does not need to be paid for, as it is a requirement of most offices to provide staff with safe water to drink. With London being a busy and bustling capital, it is vital that people working in London remember to top up on their water supply in order to function more normally and stay healthy.

London water coolers are more expensive than water coolers outside of London. Water coolers in Essex tend to be cheaper because of the size of the area, whereas London has a higher population rate in comparison. This makes it more important for them to source enough supplies of water for every office. London also has more problems of pollution, as there are more traffic within the area, causing health problems (namely breathing problems) and other minor health related issues.

Water cooler suppliers see that there is a high demand in many offices around the UK of bottled water coolers, as many people prefer not to pay for bottled mineral water all the time. Neither do they want to drink water from London water taps - even as someone who had spent a number of years living London I found the water supply system very questionable. Some invest buying portable water filters, which make drinking tap water much safer and taste better.

When I was working in London, I found that I was very quickly dehydrating and feeling dry due to the air conditioning that was installed into the building. If you do have a system in your office then it is all the more important to make sure you drink plenty of fluid in order to keep your body hydrated, help you focus and stay alert. Air conditioning units are good to keep the room cool; however, they harbour a lot of dirt and can circulate this around if it is not well maintained.

Due to the stresses and the extremely busy streets of London, more people do not find time to think about their health and wellbeing. This can very often take a toll on you and in the end; it is the simple methods that help prevent these ailments from happening. One of which is drinking plenty of water and keeping the body hydrated. The feelings of sluggishness, headaches, fatigue and general low energy can all be related to dehydration, which some people mistake for hunger. Many people do not know when they are dehydrated, which is why these symptoms appear and affect the way you work.

In London, water coolers are abundant in most offices, but if by chance you work in an office that does not supply one then you are well within your rights to request for one. Use it to your advantage as it is free and it will benefit your health.
