The mandate of the division DBA UltraSafe Water Source™ is to serve the growing number of business offices that wish to eliminate bottled water, aim to cut costs, eliminate the 5-gallon bottles from their operations, and do so with nothing to buy.
Daryl English, President of Purio, says, "North America is in the infancy of a major paradigm shift in the way business offices supply purified drinking water to their staffs and clients. We see it as a major up-coming trend and we see ourselves in a great position to profit from it. Businesses are motivated in many ways to take action and upgrade their office water service from bottle-style dispensers to modern point-of-use (POU) water purifiers and totally do away with bottled water delivery. The first motivation is cost cutting and we can often cut the monthly water budget by over 25%. Second is the convenience factor; by eliminating the plastic 5-gallon bottles, offices free up precious floor and storage space, and eliminate the risk of employee injury caused by the lifting of the 45 pound back-breakers.
Our POU purifiers not only offer a fresher tasting, better quality water, compared to bottles because it's not stored in plastic for weeks before consumption, but they also offer a greater production capacity so that businesses never more worry about running out of purified water. Couple that with the environmental care factor, whereby business can update their water service from the energy hungry, labor intensive and carbon producing delivery system of old fashioned bottles, and we are of the opinion that we are on the leading edge of a business boom."
Mr. English cited cities like San Francisco, Chicago and Vancouver, British Columbia as examples of municipalities that have banned the use of bottled water in their facilities due to concerns over its affect on the environment as well as concerns about possible health risks recently revealed from studies of chemicals leaching from water bottles into the drinking water.
