Water can represent quite a burden – literally in terms of lugging around water crates and dealing with all the empties, not to mention the considerable costs involved. If you're looking for a solution for your office, medical practice, or store, you may find that a water dispenser is the right choice. We take a look here at the various types of water dispensers.
For the sake of completeness, it's worth mentioning that the German Environment Agency has stated that, with few exceptions, fresh drinking water from the faucet in Germany is safe to drink because of its excellent quality. This holds for the large centralized systems and (in practically all cases) smaller water supply facilities.
The only constraint is that drinking water that has "stagnated" (stood) in the pipeline for more than four hours should not be used for drinking or in the preparation of food and beverages. You can do a "finger test" here by letting stagnated water flow: fresh water is noticeably cooler than stagnated water.
Now on to water dispensers.
