From the dawn of time water has been essential for the function of the human body. From the dawn of time, there have been water myths and legends told for assorted reasons from teachings to misunderstandings. Today we debunk some of the myths and mystique surrounding water.
One prominent myth is that of water and weight-loss. During the early days of media when “scientific studies” were an advertising normality without backing; many claimed that water was the cause of excess body mass. This was usually a crutch to sell products for quick and easy weight-loss. The body uses retained water over time to ensure constant hydration. Excess water retention in the body can happen, but this usually occurs when there is an excessive consumption of vitamins and minerals – one of the biggest water retaining minerals being salt.
For a long time, many believed that drinking too much water is bad for one’s health. This is a more complex path of thinking than previously realised. Excessive water consumption can have adverse side effects but this usually occurs when the water that is consumed is hard water – i.e. water that is high in mineral content. The minerals in the water can start to congest various mucous membranes within the body, inhibiting the functions of the various parts of the urinary system. Drinking pure, natural water is an excellent way to negate these effects.
There are various water myths surrounding boiled water.
A prominent myth is that of boiled water killing bacteria. It is true that boiling water may kill some bacteria but not all bacteria can denature or deteriorate due to elevated temperatures.
Another common water boiling water myth is that of twice-boiled water. According to various sources, boiling water twice is dangerous as it allows for an increase in the concentration of minerals that cannot dissipate due to evaporation. Although it does indeed increase the concentration of minerals in the water, it is not dangerous unless there are problems with the water supply pre-boiling the first time. The initial quality of the water makes the biggest impact in this scenario.
The next two water myths are somewhat intertwined with one another. These are the myth of only drinking water when you are thirsty and the myth of water is only needed to quench thirst. They are connected as the reasons they are false are very similar. Thirst is a side-effect of dehydration. As such, yes you should drink water when you are thirsty, but not only then. Other side effects of dehydration include fatigue, dry mouth, cramps and even nausea. These symptoms may arise long before the thirst sensation. Water is also not only needed to quench thirst but is needed for daily bodily functions and processes.

We understand that the world has finite resources. Therefore, we do our best to ensure that the world will be sustainable for future generations. Plastic bottle recycling is taking The UK by storm. Take a read below and find out how you can do your bit to reduce, reuse and recycle your plastic waste.
How To Recycle Your Plastic In The UK
We have compiled some information to assist fellow UK residents in their journey on the recycling path.
It is important to remember that not all plastics used are not created equally. Most plastics can be recycled, but the extent to which recycling can take place depends on the technology available.
In the UK, the recycling facilities focus on packaging and packaging types, including but not limited to:
• Plastic Trays
• Margarine/ Butter Tubs
• Yoghurt Pots
It is wise to remember the recycling in your area is controlled by councils and not by the central government as the logistics of such control would take too long and be too costly.
How We Do Our Bit To Recycle Plastic
Being involved in the water supply industry can leave a lot of waste; especially plastic. At Pressure Coolers, we understand that consumers also appreciate and value a healthy environment, and therefore use 100% recyclable plastics for bottles used in our bottled water coolers.
We offer the collection of old/used 19-litre water bottles for reuse. However, we understand that not everyone has a water cooler and that plastic recycling goes further than water.

Many people are under the impression that a water filter is only needed when their drinking water has been compromised or contaminated. This, however, is not the case. Tap water goes through many different purification methods in order for it to be drinkable, these chemicals can be filtered out with a water filter in order to have the purest possible water.
Reasons Why You Need a Water Filter
Filter out chlorine and lead for a healthier drink Chlorine is used to clean drinking water, yet it can be harmful to the human body. Lead has been proven to cause diseases as well as learning disorders among children. A water filter purifies the water, eliminating harmful substances like chlorine and lead. Rural water protection Water transmitted viruses, which are found mainly in rural communities due to poorly managed water sources, put pregnant women and children at the highest risk of death. Water filters help to protect the people from these diseases. Reduce Cancer Water filters greatly reduce the risk of rectal, colon and bladder cancer, since they remove most contaminants from the water.

Hot water boilers can be an integral part of an office kitchen – providing convenient, always-available hot water on tap for employees, 24 hours a day. Our range of water boilers can be installed on the counter-top or as wall mounted.
Installing a water boiler that produces hot water on demand can increase the productivity of your staff by ensuring that they are no longer waiting for the kettle to boil. Our objective is to offer reliable products at competitive prices and to provide prospective customers with the advice they need to make their purchasing decision.
Our range of hot water boilers come in the following three designs:
As the name suggests, an undersink hot water dispenser is usually installed below counter level to hide away the appliance from users. This has two main benefits. Firstly, the stylish water dispenser tap is the only part on show, leaving much more counter space in comparison to standard hot water boilers.
A wall mounted hot water dispenser is perfect for areas with limited counter space. Offering the same output as any other boiler, a wall mounted boiler is usually positioned above a sink instead of including a drip tray.
Countertop hot water dispensers
A countertop hot water dispenser is exactly what the name suggests. Perched on the countertop of a kitchen counter, this allows for easy access and usage.
All boiler units are sold separately or with an installation kit added on.
When it comes to looks, cost, and convenience people nowadays are more inclined to having a bottle-less water cooler than a bottled water cooler.
However, a thorough knowledge of the benefits and drawbacks of plumbed in water coolers will help you to appreciate the recent trend and make a right choice.
Clean and safe drinking water is the most important aspect that anyone would look for while buying a water cooler. With a mains connected water cooler, you can rest assured that you are getting only pure drinking water free from any contaminants.
Space and cost have always been a concern while buying any new thing for the house, especially when there are less free area and limited budget. A plumbed in water cooler is connected to the main water supply in your house, to dispense drinking water without needing you to spend money on plumbing, buying water bottles, or storing them.
Also, you can easily find a water cooler of your choice that would fit into your space from the wide collection of water coolers in the market.
Installation of bottle-less water coolers is very simple and is usually made from the company side. It is also easy to operate and maintain. No technical expertise is needed to operate the equipment.
Avoid dust to accumulate in the equipment, which may hamper the effective running of the dispenser, and may also turn it into a breeding ground for germs. Cleaning it once a week is necessary to generate healthy drinking water.
Cost of plumbed in water coolers may vary with designs and features and some of them may even be expensive. If you desire to have a specific type of water cooler, then the price may become a disadvantage for you.
The advantages and disadvantages of having a plumbed in water cooler as discussed above may guide you while shopping for a water cooler.
