Many people will remember the lyrics of the song “Cool, Clear Water,” which became popular by singers such as Frankie Laine and Johnny Cash, not so long ago in the late 1900s. However, one important word is missing from that title: PURE. Safe and pure water is what everyone hopes to be drinking.
Water is essential to life itself. A human can exist approximately forty days without food, but only three days without water. It is therefore necessary to drink an optimum amount of this precious liquid every day.
Tap water is safe to a certain extent. However, according to Prof SC Edberg of Yale University, bottled spring water, because it is sourced from underground springs, is much safer and the springs are more protected as they are carefully chosen according to their high quality.
Chlorine is the main purifier of our Australian tap water. Although it has aptly saved millions of lives by eliminating diseases such as cholera and dysentery, there is still an uncertainty regarding whether or not there is a small amount of toxicity in chlorine that is suspected of causing stomach upsets and skins rashes, especially in people with low immune systems.
Yes, tap water is relatively safe. Nevertheless, thousands of people opt for bottled spring water. Some companies even deliver bottled water. One of these is a family-owned business named Pacific Springs. It supplies and maintains water coolers that are delivered and serviced on a regular basis.
An office employee, Tony N, says that being able to drink pure, clear water by the office water cooler on a sweltering day does wonders for the morale of his colleagues. “A few of us gather around the water cooler during our breaks. This has become a great time for discussing projects or even talking about the previous evening’s television programmes,” he relates.
As well as supplying these much desired services in the Brisbane area, water coolers are also serviced in the Gold Coast, Redcliffe, Ipswich and Bribie Island. In fact, Pacific Springs has technicians working in Queensland from Ashmore to Zillmere.
Businesses have several choices. These include bench-top or stand-alone water coolers. They also come in various designs and colours to match office furniture. Bubblers are also a popular item for offices. Private homes can opt for smaller designs or to have filtered water systems connected directly to their water mains.
If you have the slightest doubt about the quality of water that you are drinking or just prefer to not take any chances, Pacific Springs is just a phone call away or you can find them on the Internet.
