5 or 3 Gallon Water in Florida: What’s Best for You?

Do you know how much water your family drinks in a month? How many glasses your employees drink a day? Do you need 5 gallon or 3 gallon water bottles for your cooler? It’s important to know these kinds of things when you’re trying to plan your monthly home or office water delivery.

It’s recommended that you drink eight glasses of water a day. However, it’s unlikely that each of these eight glasses is going to come from your water cooler. If it did, you’d be looking at 896 cups of water monthly for a family of four—that’s 56 gallons of water!

While it’s possible that your home or office may be consuming this much water monthly, if not more in some cases, there are a few factors to consider when deciding on your water delivery size. If you’re still unsure what size water bottle you need for your water delivery in Florida, call Water Boy—we can help you determine what size water you’ll need for your home or office.

Things to Consider When Selecting a Water Bottle Size

Household/company size – One of the most important factors in the decision-making process is your household or company size—knowing how many people are going to be drinking water from your cooler on a daily basis will give you an accurate assessment of how much water you should have delivered monthly and what size bottle you should choose. Generally, most companies should err on the side of 5 gallon water bottles as it’s more likely that you’ll have high traffic at your water cooler from employees, visitors, and clients.

Water intake – On average, one adult will drink between 5-10 gallons of water per month. That means a family of four will usually drink 20-40 gallons of water in a month. Generally, the amount of water being taken from the cooler is less than the actual intake because you’re not always around the water cooler when you’re thirsty. A family of four drinking three glasses a day will only go through a little under 16 gallons per month. In this instance, it would be beneficial to get 3 gallon water bottles so they could be changed more frequently.

Other uses – People aren’t always simply taking drinking water from the cooler, particularly at home. If your family or employees are using the water to make hot beverages, clean, cook, or for pets, you’ll need to factor in this extra water usage when determining the correct water delivery size. It’s possible that these kinds of uses can add up to 5 gallons to your monthly usage—if not more.
