Purchase your Water Cooler rather than entering into an onerous Rental or Lease Agreement
Many UK businesses have already discovered that, when it comes down to the provision of water for their staff and customers outright purchase can be a more cost effective method of acquiring and running an office water cooler.
While the initial cost of purchasing a water cooler can seem prohibitive when compared to a typical 3 year rental contract it becomes clear why outright purchase is so attractive to many businesses.† In addition purchasing a water cooler outright gives the consumer freedom when it comes to maintaining and running their water cooler.† The consumer can opt to maintain and sanitise the machine themselves or can select and switch between third party suppliers at will, in order to achieve the correct balance of cost over service levels, something that is impossible if the consumer is tied into an extended rental contract or lease.

Customers who opt for a plumbed in water cooler have only to sanitise the machine and replace the filter every 6 months; they can accomplish this in 3 ways:
Itís perfectly possible for individuals to maintain the machine themselves by purchasing a sanitisation kit and filter when required.† The filters cost from only £29.99 and sanitisation kits with enough liquid to last for a year start from only £44.99.

Opt for a Service Contract
Some companies also offer consumers the option for a service contract at the time of purchase; this often includes access to a qualified engineer.† Prices start from £199 for the year and are generally handled via a third party company.†††††††
Options for Bottled Water Cooler Customers
Rather than worrying about a filter change Bottled Water Cooler customers have to consider the supply of regular bottle deliveries.† Bottled machines still require regular sanitisation but itís generally considered more appropriate for the supplier of bottles to sanitise the machines in conjunction with the deliveries.† The principal advantage of purchasing a bottled water cooler over renting the cooler is that this option leaves the consumer open to switch between suppliers at will.† Bottled Water Cooler customers have the following options:
Self Maintenance & Third Party Bottle Delivery
