Storing Water Bottles

A bottled water delivery service gives you convenient access to fresh water in your home or office. But, what about storing the large bottles of water to use in your water dispenser or cooler? If you’re worried you don’t have sufficient or suitable space for storing water bottles, then read on for our tips on how to properly store water bottles.

Keep them out of the sun
You don’t want your bottled water going warm, even if you’re going to be putting it through a water cooler before it gets consumed, so it is best to store your water bottles in a shaded area or a cool cupboard. Water bottles exposed to direct sunlight can also start to breakdown slightly and let components of the plastic seep into the water. 

This can affect the taste of the water and, depending on the type of plastic used, can also add trace amounts of harmful chemicals to your water. The plastic used in our water bottles is completely safe, but it is still advisable to store your water bottles away from direct sunlight. 

Use a storage rack
Bottled water storage racks are the most convenient way to store and organize your bottled water, especially if you don’t have enough space in a nearby storage closet or kitchen cabinet. We sell bottle storage racks that allow you to store anywhere between 2 to 12 large bottles, depending on how many bottles you tend to store at a time. 

Keep away from chemicals
You might have space under your sink to store your water bottles, and this makes sense since it’s near a water source and probably near your water dispenser. But, you should avoid storing your bottles in the same space as cleaning products, chemicals, and solvents. This is because plastic can be slightly permeable, so storing the bottles near chemicals for long periods of time could lead to them seeping into your water in small amounts. 

Near your water cooler
You don’t want to be lugging large bottles of water around the house to get them to your water cooler, so it makes sense to store them next to or at least nearby your water cooler or dispenser. If you don’t have suitable storage space nearby, then take a look at the link above for our water bottle storage racks. 

If you’d like to arrange a fresh bottled water delivery service for your home or office, or if you need additional accessories for your water cooler, get in touch with us at Mountain Park Spring Water, operating around North Carolina and Virginia.

Is My Water Delivery Service Worth It?

If you have a water delivery service for your home or office, or if you’re considering getting one, then you may occasionally wonder if it’s worth the money. Obviously, we think that it is definitely worth it, but you might need some more convincing than our opinion alone. So, if you’re on the fence about a bottled water delivery service, then read on to find out whether it is really worth it or not.


Cost of the service
Some people avoid water delivery services because they think it’s too expensive. In reality, you can find affordable water delivery services tailored to the amount of water you need. So, if you’re just purchasing water for you or your family, your costs will be much lower than a large corporation employing a water delivery service for all their offices and employees. Our average customers spend less than $25 per month on their bottled water delivery service, which can serve a family or small office. 


Quality of the water
In terms of the quality of water you and your family drink, filtered spring water is much better than the stuff you get from the tap. It contains fewer impurities and less risk of chemicals, and most people agree that it tastes better. Spring water also contains a variety of minerals, such as calcium, that are good for your health.


Ease of delivery
If you have a water filter or dispenser in your home or office, then you could just go out to the store and buy your own bottled water each time you run out. But, having this water delivered takes a lot of hassle out of your day-to-day life. You don’t need to worry about lugging large bottles of water around to and from the car and up the stairs to your office. This is all taken care of for you. 


Environmentally friendly
If you prefer the taste and quality of bottled water, then you can end up buying a lot of single use bottles of water from the store. As well as being costlier, this also adds a lot of extra plastic to your waste. Using large bottles containing several gallons of water is much more environmentally friendly, and the person who delivers your water will collect the empty ones from you and dispose of them properly.


Hopefully you’re convinced, so you can contact us online or by phone to arrange for your water delivery service or to find out more about our services across North Carolina and Virginia.
