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.

The world is facing a plastic pollution crisis, and showing no signs of slowing down. By 2021, plastic bottle consumption is suspected to be half a trillion. This is a 20% increase on our current plastic pollution state around the world.
We have all experienced or heard about recent climate change and unexpected extreme temperatures happening in cities and countries globally. But have you thought about your plastic consumption and the effect it has on the environment?
Plastic pollution is now and should be seen has an equal threat to climate change as the epidemic is affecting all organisms and natural habitats around the world.
How Many Plastic Bottles Purchased A Day?
Mainly due to urbanisation “on the go” lifestyle and poor local water supplies about 20,000 plastic bottles are bought every second, amounting to a million plastic bottles bought every minute. Can you imagine the build-up of plastic pollution yearly or three years from now?
Plastic and the Environment
Microplastics are posing serious risks to marine life such as whales, sharks and other species. These sea creatures swallow hundreds of indigestible plastics daily, releasing harmful toxins into their bodies and disrupting their normal nutrient intake.
Plastic pollution is threatening human health too, plastics have been found in fish and shellfish and the consumption of these seafood results in ingestion of tiny pieces of plastic every year.
Current UK Plastic State
Over 35.8 million bottles are consumed every day in the UK. Now you might be thinking where does it all go once used?
Don’t be surprised to find plastic bottles and packaging swarming your favourite beaches and coastlines in the UK during the summer. Astoundingly, just over half make it to recycling, and the rest ends up in landfills, where upon, burnt and leaked into the environment.
UK Plastic Solutions
China has stopped accepting foreign waste, this has become a problem for the UK as 500 000 tons of UK plastic was being shipped to China a year.
Great Britain is now faced with the task of finding alternative solutions to slowing down plastic pollution in its cities.
To reduce plastic waste, a scheme in Brighton is offering free water bottle refills in shops and cafes.
Water UK have noticeably seen the success of this initiative and is hoping to bring this refill scheme to every major town in England by 2021.
Another initiative the UK government will try and adopt is the Norwegian way of recycling, known as the deposit system.
Consumers will pay a small charge on each plastic bottle bought in the shops, similar to the current plastic bag policy in the UK. However, when the plastic bottle is returned to the shop or a recycling machine, consumers will get refunded for the charge.
Recycling machines will offer customers shop vouchers or the option of making a charitable donation.
This recycling system has had immense success in Norway, attributing to the countries 97% recycling rate compared to Great Britain’s 50%.
It’s time to start reducing your plastic waste and contribute positively to the environment. At Pressure Coolers, we offer a range of drinking water fountains, the ideal solution to reduce plastic pollution in schools, homes and public environments.

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.

Water is a very important to our lives, especially when trying to be healthy and active. In order for our bodies to perform at its maximum capacity and be fully operational, we need to consume a certain amount of water each day.
Daily Water Consumption
There are many different opinions on how much water we should be drinking every day. The health authorities commonly recommend eight to ten glasses of water for a full grown adult, which equals about 2 litres. But when we consume that amount of water, our bodies naturally get rid of half of that amount when visiting the restroom. A good rule of thumb to remember is when you relieve yourself, you need to replenish with more water to maintain hydration levels.
When looking at children between the ages of 4 and 12, researchers have found that they tend to drink more fruit juices than water. Yes, they might be consuming liquids but the liquid which they are consuming are more of a danger in terms of overload of sugar and other ingredients.
In their daily lives, children are extremely active and energetic – even more so when they consume sugary drinks. The following minimum recommendations are best suited for children within their age groups:
- 5 – 8 years need to consume 5 glasses of water per day.
- 9 – 12 years need to consume 7 glasses a day.
- 13+ years need to consume the same amount as adults, which is 8 – 10 glasses.
When looking at schools, water needs to be made a priority. An adequate amount of clean, accessible drinking water fountains needs to be readily available for them.
We stock a range a water fountains which can be installed differently. Whether you require a wall mounted fountain or a floor standing fountain – indoor or outdoor, we have them all. Our wheelchair accessible water fountains are something which we have put a lot of thought into as there are special requirements for them in terms of size, height and width to provide the comfort and ease of the person consuming from the fountain.
Remember, you and your child should drink more water when you’re exercising or on a hot day. We often don’t feel thirsty even when our bodies need fluid, so it’s a good idea to drink water regularly throughout the day.
