When bottled water sales boomed in the mid-1990s, food service and hospitality operators and distributors learned that leasing point-of-use (POU) water vending products that offered fresh cold water and hot water-based beverages could be very profitable.
Treating Vending Water
There are two common types of water cooler vending systems: mains-fed from the tap and bottled water coolers. In any environment, it is important to know how to select the right type of filtration.
Filtration options to provide the best water
For younger generations, fresh, filtered water is increasingly viewed as a necessity rather than a luxury. People are more aware than ever of the health benefits of staying hydrated, and the public is more concerned about contaminants in drinking water. Point-of-use water treatment systems can meet this need while not contributing to plastic waste.

LayneRT is an NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certified and approved arsenic removal media. It is a hydrous iron oxide-impregnated resin that efficiently binds arsenic and never needs backwashing. LayneRT was designed for use in the npXtra series of home treatment systems to effectively reduce arsenic. Tanks are connected by a proprietary control head that provides valves for sampling influent and effluent of both tanks.
Recent studies show that one of the victims of the current economic recession has been restaurants. While many people have been dining out less this past year, the restaurant industry itself remains relatively healthy in many areas of the U.S.

As a consumer and a father of young children, I find myself amazed at the products that enter our market that could be potentially unsafe for use in our homes. In early February, we received a call from a bulk food store we often purchase from. The person on the phone said their records indicated that we purchased granola bars that are part of the recent recall for a Salmonella outbreak.
