Generally speaking, the Federal Government does not purchase pure bottled drinking water for Federal employees unless it can be proved that agency drinking water is unsuitable for drinking.
Proof of water quality however, is a long and time consuming process and many agency employees are forced to drink low quality, bad tasting tap or well water in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
Nevertheless, many Federal agency employees now purchase pure drinking water by forming water clubs. Water clubs are formed from individual employees with shared interests of maintaining good health and drinking pure 수원셔츠룸 water as a start. The club that is formed agrees to purchase bottled water delivery and usually agrees to rent or buy one or more water coolers for club use on the agency premises.
The club gains purchasing power based on the strength of it membership and the members gain the advantage of pure drinking water for office and event consumption. Office consumption usually takes the form of regular delivery of 5 gallon bottles for water cooler use and 20 oz and 12 oz. small package PET bottles for events or other club occasions.
Some Bottled Water Companies Offer Specific Programs Tailored To Water Clubs. In Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro area at least one purified bottled water company offers programs tailored to water clubs in the Federal Government. These program offer volume discounts and flexible delivery dates as well as responsive customer service based upon the latest technology and trained staff.
In addition the quality of the drinking water is important. Some bottled water companies merely repackage tap water while other bottled water companies use water from springs or artesian wells that may contain contamination, harmful minerals or bacteria.
