3 Risks to Avoid with a Benchtop Water Cooler

3 Risks to Avoid with a Benchtop Water Cooler

A benchtop water cooler can provide a quick and easy way to keep your clients, employees and family members hydrated throughout the day. Having access to cool fresh water at the push of a button is convenient, but the cooler needs to be correctly maintained and cleaned to be effective. At Aussie Natural, we include your maintenance needs in our rental package to make your water cooler experience as easy as possible. However, there are things that you need to be aware of if you’re not used to using a water cooler. Here are three risks that you need to avoid when you’re using a water cooler..

Water Filters Systems

1. Avoiding Scalding Injuries:

Most modern water dispensers are now equipped with a hot water tap with its own switch to avoid scalding injuries for users. This is a much safer option than using a busy office kettle, it significantly reduces the incidences of scalding injuries, but it can take some time to get used to. Most hot water dispenser injuries are caused because of the hot water being handled in a careless manner. As an example, some people like to fill narrow necked bottles with hot water, and as a result, they spill hot water on their hands. It’s safer to place the receptacle on the drip tray and operate the hot water tap without touching the bottle, mug or cup, at all.

2. Loading the Water Bottle Safely:

At some point, it’s likely that you will visit the water cooler and discover that the water bottle is empty. A new full bottle of water will need to be fitted, and this is where many people can hurt their backs. Like any other object, you should always use the proper techniques when lifting it into place. Always keep your back as straight as possible, squat down to lift the bottle and hold it firmly before lifting. Then when you stand back up you can easily place the new bottle into the dispenser safely.

3. Falls and Slips:

If there is an internal leak in the water cooler, a pool of water could form at the base of the unit. This can easily cause a slip hazard on a harder tiled surface if the problem isn’t identified early. Any spillages should be immediately mopped up, and you should contact us here at Aussie Natural for some technical advice and support.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
