With the United States facing high rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, drinking water to stay healthy is more important than ever. Bottled water delivery service provides you, your family, or your employees a healthy alternative to sugary drinks. There are several things a consumer should consider when choosing a bottled water delivery company. At “The Water Guy”TM we know this better than anyone and have provided you with what we consider are the hallmarks. “The Water Guy” strives to make the decision to choose a water delivery company easy, but, we understand that you may not yet be ready to take that step. Let’s talk and decide how to go about choosing a water delivery service.
8 Things to Consider When Choosing a Water Delivery Service
1. You’re a busy person.
There’s never enough time in the day. Take away all obligations and we’d still ask for more time just to binge-watch our favorite shows. Residential customers recognize that our service ensures reliable delivery so that while they manage chaotic work, sports, and school schedules, we ensure that water is never a concern. The reliability of our service resonates with our commercial customer base as well, keeping every employee happy and hydrated without having to send an employee out to buy the office water.
2. Water is heavy.
Water, at a standard temperature of 62 degrees Fahrenheit, weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon. Some quick math tells us that a 5-gallon bottle weighs, roughly, 42 pounds. Carrying 42 pounds is the equivalent of carrying a newborn bison… which we do not recommend. To some, the weight of a baby bison is manageable which is why our route drivers carry the water right to your door. For the rest of America, we’re here to carry all of that weight down your long driveway, up all of those steps, in the rain, right to your door.
3. Water has extensive health benefits.
Water can’t reverse aging, but good hydration does lead to healthier skin given that dry, flaky, and cracked skin are symptoms of dehydration. Like your kidneys, the skin is an organ, your largest, really, composed of cells that could not survive without water. Water composes 60% of our body and 75% of our brain, but to lose more than 7% of body weight via dehydration will likely kill you. Although mild dehydration won’t send you to the hospital, dehydration does limit mental capacity, which is why hydration for employees is so critical in order to maintain high productivity and efficiency. Drinking water is just as essential for those trying to lose weight. Consider that replacing 1 daily can of soda with a bottle of water will cause the average American to lose 12 to 16 pounds over the course of a year.
5. Our service goes beyond water delivery.
Water delivery remains our forte yet we are rapidly expanding our coffee service as well as custom labeling. Our coffee is offered by the pot via fractional packs as well as by the cup through our single-cup product line. No brewer? No problem. We offer a diverse variety of brewer rental options so that you can enjoy your favorite cup of Wawa or Starbucks coffee.
6. Offers flexible plans
Just because you want bottled water delivery service does not mean you need to commit to a set number of bottles to be delivered. In fact, many people will find their water use varies depending on their current situation. An extra child home from college, an increase in employees or a change to warmer weather can impact water use in your home or office. The best bottled water delivery companies offer flexible plans that enable you to switch the number of bottles or cases from one delivery to the next. They provide ultimate flexibility not only in bottled water product but also bottled water coolers, by providing the option to rent, purchase or provide your own.
7. Dedication to product quality
Full transparency of the bottled water’s treatment process allows you to remain hydrated with a peace of mind. “The Water Guy” believes everyone should know where the water they are drinking comes from. It is important to note if the bottled water delivery service you are considering is a member of the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA). As a member of the IBWA, companies are subjected to rigorous inspections, as well as, required to follow FDA regulations to assure consumers that the bottled water they are drinking is heavily regulated and tested for the highest quality. A bottler with a Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 3 Certification provides further assurance to consumers that their bottled water has passed rigorous international standards of quality control and food safety.
8. Reliable Customer Service
Everyone is busy and the last thing you want to do is worry about your bottled water delivery service. Find a company that has reliable customer service and the ability to manage your account online so they can promptly respond to your hydration needs. As a customer, you should know when and what to expect for each of your deliveries.

4 Misconceptions about Choosing a Water Delivery Service
How much do you really know about your water delivery service? Sure, everyone has heard the myths about water delivery, but, have you heard the truths? These can help you in choosing a water delivery service.
Misconception #1: “Water coolers are only appropriate in offices.”
Truth: Our thousands of residential customers will tell you just how convenient their water coolers are in their homes. We offer room temperature, cold and hot water dispensing options on our coolers providing several options in your kitchen. To make the lifting easier, we offer 3-gallon bottles that are much lighter than our 5-gallon options. For those who prefer not to lift a bottle at all, we offer bottom-load coolers that allow the customers’ bottle to be changed by sliding the bottle into a lower compartment. Our most popular water coolers combine these features by offering two different water temperatures and matching a sleek finish with a digital display or built-in cup holder.
Misconception #2: “I need to be available for my delivery… and I just don’t have time for that.”
Truth: No one has time to be waiting for bottled water delivery. And that is okay, you don’t have to be available. If you are a residential customer, all you need to do is leave your bottles where we are able to find and access them. When you come home, we’ll have your empty bottles replaced with full gallons of the purest water. If you are a commercial customer, our Route Salesman will come into your business and simply replace your empty bottles with full bottles. Our Route Salesmen are quiet and professional… you shouldn’t even notice that we were there!

Truth: We exist to help you find your water solution, whether that be through filtration, case water, or bottled water and coolers. In addition to water, we offer many more products such as custom label water bottles AND an expanding coffee service. We’ll install and service your filtration device, regularly. Our coffee customers also enjoy exceptional service in that these customers are assigned to a coffee specialist who will assist the customer in making purchasing decisions based off of our best values and new varieties of coffee. Check out our filtration or coffee service!
Misconception #4: “I don’t drink enough water in order to justify a water delivery service.”
Truth: You may not realize how much you and the rest of your household or office truly drink. Many individuals consume most of their water via the foods they eat. Whether you use our room temperature dispensing option for cooking in your home or hot dispensing for your coffee or instant soup, we are sure to have a cooler option to justify your needs. After all, water is the most abundant compound in the human body, we all need it and drinking adequate amounts of water can help decrease your risk of many ailments.
