The Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser is a water dispenser that has a range of useful features and that can help to improve your health in a number of ways. In this Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser review, we’ll attempt to find out if it is a good choice for your home.
Design and Features
To look at, the Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser is unassuming but also high quality. We’ve seen a lot of water coolers that go with the very basic, clinical, white construction. This isn’t terribly inspiring, but it does the job. Others have a more futuristic aesthetic.
This product falls somewhere in the middle though. It is black, smooth, and cylindrical. The design is minimal, but it’s also very premium and slick. Don’t like the design? The good news here is that it is also available in white. This is something that we don’t see often, but it is very welcome.
No Need For Bottles
What helps with the minimal and sleek appearance, is the fact that this water cooler is bottleless. That means that you won’t have a large bottle sitting on top, which can be an eyesore on even the best fundamental design otherwise.
This also allows the Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser to actually hold more water. Impressively, it has a 1,500 gallon capacity, which gives it the ability to not only hydrate a family, but also a whole office if you should need it to! In fact, this is an ideal choice for commercial applications in general – which could likewise include events and conferences, or even stores and gyms.
Why add this to your office?
But the Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser is also an ideal choice for offices and commercial settings.
Your staff are not robots – they are not just going to sit at their desks typing for hours on end without any kind of interaction or movement and actually you wouldn’t want this anyway. You need your office to have a social element so that your staff can chat or so that they can catch up on the day’s events and this means you need to think about communal areas and open plan designs that can help bring your office closer together. It will strengthen the team and it will encourage creativity – famously, it was by encouraging communication between departments that Steve Jobs was able to turn Pixar into the huge hit-making studio it is today.
Where do staff like to talk most? The water cooler!
Moreover, a water cooler can help to create a different vibe in a specific space. Your office is mainly a place of work but you need to ensure that an office space can also double up as a number of different venues. This includes making sure it can serve as a coffee shop when your staff are on their lunch breaks and they need somewhere to sit and eat/have a cup of tea, and it means allowing it to serve as a potential location for your office Christmas parties even. The more versatile your office, the more your staff will be able to work in ways that make them feel comfortable.
On top of all this, water coolers help staff to stay hydrated and feel fresh and alert. This has a big impact on creativity – and especially when you consider the hydration benefits as well.
What’s really impressive about this dispenser though, is that it can act as both a water heater/cooler and a filtration system. The heating and cooling feature means that you can get a refreshing glass of cold water or hot water for a cup of tea/for cleaning. This is endlessly convenient for families.
It’s the filtration that is really amazing though. The Brio Premiere Platinum 500 Series Hot and Cold Bottle Water Dispenser will also be able to reduce a whole range of different contaminants in your water. It’s not one of the most thorough filters, but it will improve the quality of your water substantially by using a carbon filter to remove tiny debris.
Finally, the construction has been designed to be long lasting and won’t corrode over time.
