Has anyone had experience in using this company quench ( for opting out of the use of the office water cooler which has the #7 BPA plastic bottle? I am recommending my office to stop using the water cooler with plastic jug refills that are #7. Quench still has plastic use on the front- the sides are stainless steel, as is the holding tank for the water. I would love to hear any reviews-

The company contacted me, but I haven't had a chance to try it.  It seems like a good idea, and I'm going to recommend it in my book.  Please let us know how it works out for you if you install one.

A few years ago we saw in our local coffee shop a stainless steel water dispenser made in Italy and called Superfustinox. The coffee shop owner had filled it with ice, so the container was sweating a bit, but the water was so fresh and cool. So we contacted the company and started selling them on our website. Eventually, the company in Italy closed shop, but we were able to find some alternatives also made in Italy.  We currently carry the 5 litre (1.3 gallon), 10 litre (2.6 gallon) and 15 litre (4 gallon) and soon the 25 litre (6.6 gallon) and 30 litre (8 gallon). Just go to this page. The water is fresh, it saves electricity and it is completely plastic-free.
