Five reasons why the sanitisation kit is so important

Water coolers are a great addition to any workplace, giving employees quick and simple access to fresh, cold water to help freshen up their day. They also represent a popular gathering place for co-workers to take a short break from the daily workload and get to know one another on a personal level, helping to forge strong and lasting relationships together.

In order to keep your water supply as fresh as possible, taking steps to maintain and sanitise your water cooler is important. Borg & Overström provide a specialist sanitisation kit that allows you to keep hygiene standards at the highest level. This kit can be re-used multiple times, helping you to keep your water cooler system totally clean and sanitised for many years.

Below are five reasons why our sanitisation kit is a vital and excellent accessory to have alongside your Borg & Overström water cooler.

Avoiding unhealthy water

Although Borg & Overström products are designed to ensure the maximum level of cleanliness and hygiene, no water cooler is exempt from requiring sanitisation. Contaminants in and around your cooler system are unavoidable and need to be dealt with periodically. Using our sanitisation kit every six months will keep your water supply fresh and ensure dispenser points are hygienic.

Simple to use

You don’t need to be an expert to get the most out of our sanitisation kit. Specific instructions on how to use each piece of equipment are very easy to follow and you aren’t required to perform any complex engineering or maintenance tasks. The entire process of sanitisation is also a fairly quick procedure, so you don’t need to dedicate an entire day to the task.


We recommend performing a sanitisation clean on your water cooler every six months or so to keep everything in top condition. Our sanitisation kit is not a one-off purchase that you need to make each time you sanitise your cooler. Much of the equipment provided will last for years, so you don’t need to worry about making preparations to bring in a new kit each time.

Maintaining workplace standards

A poorly maintained water cooler isn’t only something that leads to unhealthy water – it’s also damaging to the overall office environment and the image of your organisation if you aren’t striving to maintain high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Both employees and visiting clients may not hold your organisation in particularly high regard if areas of your workplace are not clean.

Prevent maintenance problems

Any machine that isn’t properly tended to will eventually fall into a state of disrepair. This will lead it to cease functioning to its full ability and could eventually lead to permanent damage. Our sanitisation kit can help prevent blockages and build-ups in certain areas that may end up causing permanent damage. In such cases you may be required to purchase new parts or bring in professional help to get the problem fixed properly if you neglect your cooler system for too long.
