Rather than introducing bacteria and viruses from jugs, our “Closed System” units use a sealed, closed tank system to keep your water sanitary and virus-free. This ensures air will not touch the water until it is dispensed, which is the smartest to combat germs in the workplace.
Traditional bottled water coolers utilize an open system, allowing bacteria to enter the water while sitting stagnant in the holding tank. Once manufactured, these bottles are filled with treated water at a bottling facility where there are multiple chances for germs and environmental contaminants to enter. The bottled water cooler itself is an open well with no barriers to airborne or waterborne bacteria.
Rather than introducing bacteria from every jug to an open reservoir, Optimum’s stainless-steel storage tanks are sealed and completely sanitary.
There is no higher priority to Optimum than the safety of our customers and employees while standing firm in our commitment to provide the cleanest drinking water available.
What we unknowingly pass around from employee to employee is top of mind today, and Optimum represents a product line of drinking water and ice machines that will undoubtedly aid in your effort to reduce cross-contamination points. We are closely monitoring this fluid situation, reassuring you that you are drinking the safest water available.
