Of course, you can provide water from the water tab in the toilets or kitchen (umm, nice!), but water treatment tends to give most tap water an unpleasant flavor and smell or even make it downright undrinkable. In addition, because it might be safe, does not mean it is nice.
There are some good business reasons why you need a Water Dispenser. Employees who experience minor levels of dehydration can suffer loss of concentration.

So what does a Water Dispenser do and why does it work?
A Water Dispenser is designed to provide a continuous supply of drinking water in the workplace. Some provide water at room temperature; others can chill the water to make it more refreshing and are called Water Coolers, and some can heat the water to almost the boiling point suitable for making hot drinks. At HappyWater, our most popular Water Dispenser is the Hot and Cold model that allows drinking cold water for hydration and refreshment but also lets employees make a hot muck of Team, Milo or some cup noodles.
The water comes from the space saving 5-gallon or 3-gallon HappyWater bottles, so that you can have the peace-of-mind that you, in fact, drink clean water.
