We all know the importance of hydration, but there’s more to it than just drinking the appropriate amount. The quality of the water that you’re drinking is arguably just as important, and this is where the tap in your kitchen significantly lets you down. While it may be the most convenient way to keep hydrated, research and tests have shown that tap water contains up to 2100 different substances that you really don’t want to be consuming. This summer, relieve your staff from such an archaic form of refreshment, and install a water cooler in your workplace.
The facts and figures behind tap water.
The most common substance in your tap water is chlorine. While chlorine is a great disinfectant that successfully kills harmful bacteria, it isn’t necessarily meant to be consumed, and too high a level of chlorine can be deadly to humans. In addition, fluoride is another substance that has been found in tap water. In the eyes of many, fluoride is what’s found in toothpaste and is fantastic in preventing tooth decay and strengthening our bones, but do we really need to add so much of it to our water? It’s believed that the filtering process ensures that 1 part per million includes the substance, which is bordering on a level that risks our teeth to go yellow or discolour.
The tap leaves a boring impression.
Did you know that your kitchen tap stems as far back to 1880? Thomas Campbell of Saint John, New Brunswick, patented the first ‘mixer’ tap, which successfully enabled the user to receive either hot or cold water pretty much instantly. The problem is, that was over 136 years ago, and times have changed. There is nothing special about a bog standard tap system, and it may suggest to your visitors that you’re an old fashioned business that makes do with average refreshment solutions.
