Clean Drinking Water?
Have you ever wondered just how clean the water you’re drinking from your cooler is? Think about it, if you have a bottled water cooler, every time you place a new blue bottle on top are your cooler, the nose of the bottle goes down into your drinking water… ever wonder where that bottles been? Loading docks, warehouses, trucks… how clean do you think that knows about bottle really is? Many people tell us: “but we cleaned the top of the bottle with Windex”… I wonder… what’s better for us to drink? Dirt or Windex?
Every water cooler on the market today, whether it’s a bottled water cooler, or a filtered water cooler, has a reservoir inside of it. The reservoir is no more than a plain bucket, sometimes made of plastic and sometimes made of stainless steel. The purpose of the reservoir is to provide a place for the water to sit and be chilled so that it’s cold when you go to get a drink.
The problem is; these reservoirs are supposed to be cleaned and sterilized periodically. The drinking water that sits inside of these reservoirs, whether it’s bottled water, or filtered water, has no chlorine in it. Non- chlorinated water cannot sit stagnant in a bucket for days, weeks, and months on end without growing bacteria.
The recommended level of bacteria in drinking water is to be no higher than 500 parts per million. We routinely test our clients water prior to changing their coolers and get back results back that show bacteria levels as high as 40,000 ppm!
Stonybrook offers the only “dry technology” in the world… our appliances have no water inside of them. No reservoir. When you push a button on the Stonybrook cooler to get a glass of water, only then does the machine allow water into itself, it ultra filters and chills the water to 37° and places it in your cup in a half a second, the water never sits in a reservoir holding bacteria. We call it “Fresh Squeezed Water!
