The Water Delivery Company started off targeting the home water cooler market in the UK back in 2002 – but soon moved away from this as we found that the general public was not yet ready to embrace the idea of water coolers in the home en masse.
We do still have a home water cooler base across London and over the next two years this is an area we are further targetting. If you want to see our first online effort at the home water cooler market please look at www.aquome.com – don’t hold it against us! In July 2009 we launched HomeWaterCoolers.co.uk as the UK’s first dedicated website to the home water cooler market.
One of the first attempts to find a low cost entry model for residential customers was the ceramic dispenser shown to the left. We still have hundreds of customers who have these ceramic dispensers in the home, but they do have their drawbacks. Notably the fact that the dispenser does not actively chill the water. Over the years we have found that one of the key initial motivations for a home water cooler is chilled water for the summer months – as the weather gets hotter, unfortunately the water in the ceramic can heat up as well.
However over the years we have asked our customers for the main reasons they have a home water cooler and water delivery service and have found them to be as follows
- Ease – No more carrying water back from the supermarket
- Provenance – Assurance of where the spring water has come and that it has been recently bottled
- Value – Purchasing water in 19 litre or 12 litre bottles is cheaper than purchasing smaller pack bottles from the supermarket
- Recycling – After each bottle is finished we collect it, industrially clean it and then reuse it. In comparison with small pack plastic bottles our supply chain is remarkably environmenally friendly.
In recent years the cost of purchasing home water coolers has come down enormously and we have also further established our business and are able to offer most homes the choice of renting home water coolers. This range of options is definitely important for our home customers and we are hoping in coming months to further advertise our services to home customers in London. Lastly our range of water coolers now includes some great looking stainless steel models which would fit into the most modern of kitchens.
