Water Coolers Direct (WCD) have launched a Bottled V's Plumbed in Water Cooler Calculator. The calculator is to be made available on the WCD website and allows the companies customers and other members of the web going public to find out the potential savings when they switch over to Plumbed in Water Coolers.
Plumbed in Water Coolers are connected to the mains water supply and as such are a cheaper and greener solution to the bottled water cooler equivalents which require a constant supply of expensive 19 Litre bottles. It is often difficult to quantify these savings given the variables involved, so WCD has decided to develop the calculator in order to help customers too understand the real impact on a case by case basis.
Surrounded by competitors who push lucrative rental contracts WCD prides itself is leading what it calls "the Water Coolers Direct drinking revolution" where customers of the company have effectively said NO to onerous drinking water contracts by purchasing their machines outright. Since staring business in 2004 with 3 employees in a loft in Dursley Gloucester, the dotcom business has grown into a business that employs over 15 local people. The business has recently reached an important landmark by selling to its 5,000th UK based customer and relocating to larger premises on the prestigious Gloucester Business Park.
WCD has always encouraged customers down the Plumbed in route where possible because of the potential cost savings and the positive effect on the environment.
"We are proud of our green credentials…" says Martin Booth Sales Director of Water Coolers Direct "…we already commit to donate a sum of money to Pure the Clean Planet Trust in order to offset our carbon footprint which is an important first step in demonstrating our commitment to environmental responsibility and helps to raise awareness of these issues with our customers."
Additional benefits for customers considering the switch over to Plumbed in Water Coolers that are not covered by the calculator include:
No bottle deposits to resolve and keep track of and no fluctuating costs dependant on the amount of water used
Opting for Plumbed in reduces the potential Health & Safety issues relating to staff members lifting heavy 19 Litre Bottles
Going bottle free helps to release the storage space required by the bottles
Prevents customers becoming reliant on bottled water deliveries which can cause issues especially in the hot summer months
Fred Cairns Palmer the Managing Director of Water Coolers Direct said "Focusing on the purchase only option means that we aren't driven to supply bottles to make a profit… he goes on to explain that …Purchase only means that we have to offer a broad range of products not just the low end machines that help make the rental companies their money, we are also free from a reliance on bottle delivery which allows us to push plumbed in coolers that are better for the environment and the customer's pocket."
