Copper Water Dispensers
Water For Health & Hygiene
Copper is the best material to use for drinking water storage, and it has been used for thousands of years to keep drinking water safe.
Copper is an amazing material to use for water dispensers because of it’s antibacterial and anti-viral properties, and that’s just for starters!
There have been many peer-reviewed papers on the benefits of copper. You will find well referenced scientific articles on copper’s health benefits here
Copper water dispensers offer even more than having antibacterial and anti-viral properties that keep your drinking water safe from disease causing microbes.
Copper is also:
- an algaestat – a material or substance that inhibits or deters the growth of algae
- Anti-parasitic – a material, substance or medication that destroys or inhibits helminths, amoeba, ectoparasites, parasitic fungi, and protozoa
- a fungicide – a material used to kill or inhibit the growth of fungi that could be hazardous to humans, plants or animals.
- Nematocidal – destroys, inhibits or deters nematodes e.g. roundworms or parasites found in animals, marine environments, fresh water, plants, fish, or as free-living forms in soil
Testing Copper’s Health Benefits
Copper is scientifically proven to be the most remarkable material to store your drinking water in because copper actually sanitises water from bacteria, viruses and pathogens, that have the potential to cause disease and/or serious harm, or death.
The World Health Organization says that every year more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water related diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.
To endorse our products with absolute confidence, Water Eggs has been working closely with a water testing laboratory to monitor copper’s effects on water in action.
Test# 1 – Copper Kills Bacteria
One cause of disease and death is bacterium E. Coli (Escherichia coli).
The water laboratory collected a river water sample known to be polluted with human waste and infected with E. Coli bacteria.
At the beginning of this test, the first sample taken from the copper container showed the water was loaded with E. Coli bacteria, and the colony count was 5360 colony forming units (CFUs) per 100 ml of water!
After only 4 hours the bacterial count was reduced by 78%.
Copper is highly effective in neutralizing bacteria.
Test# 2 – Copper Alkalizes Water
Every day you have opportunities to support your health and well being with conscious eating and drinking to grow your sense of well being.
One way is to balance your diet with alkalizing food and drink to help offset the development of increased acidity in the blood and other body tissues, a condition known as acidosis.
Acidity is a common yet avoidable condition that contributes to a wide range of diseases including cancer, osteoporosis, kidney stones, and generally a weakened immune system.
Filtered water is typically acidic. Storing filtered water in a copper dispenser alkalizes water and is another step to support your health.

Pouring Water From The Dispenser
Press the button located top and centre on the dispenser lid.
This button opens the valve concealed inside the dispenser.
The flow rate is adjustable depending on how far the release button is pressed down. For example, water can be poured slowly when filling a small glass, or when refilling a water bottle and a faster flow rate is more convenient, simply press the release button a little further and the flow rate will increase.
Water stops flowing automatically when the spring-loaded button is released.
Filling The Water Dispenser
It’s always best to use filtered water unless you have access to spring water and know the water quality.
Enrich the Nutritional Content Of Your Water!
While filtered water might be free from unwanted contaminates, the water will also have had the mineral content removed too.
It is very beneficial to add a nutritional content to your drinking water with minerals.
Simply add a level teaspoon of Sea Salt or Himalayan Rock Salt to a glass of water, stir and then add the dissolved salt to the 23 litre (5 Gal) water dispenser.
Note: the water should never taste salty, that indicates you have added too much sea salt.
Depending on where the Sea Salt was harvested from, the mineral content will vary. Nonetheless, Sea salt or Himalayan Rock Salt provides up to 80 essential minerals and trace elements in a state that is readily bio available especially wen dissolved in water.Minerals and trace elements are the building blocks your body needs.The minerals also include the required electrolytes your body needs to communicate at a cellular level.
Use natural unrefined salt and NOT refined table salt.
The water will taste softer and you will hydrate better. Generally, the water will be more satisfying and palatable.
Cleaning The Inside Of The Water Dispenser
Copper maintains a clean environment inside the water dispenser; the surface of copper is antibacterial, anti-viral and inhibits the growth of algae and other biofilms.
Plastic, glass, terracotta, stoneware and ceramic dispensers typically accumulate algae or other biofilms on the inside surface.
If you are using filtered water the cleaning requirements are small. Occasionally rinse the inside with fresh water to remove any sediment that may have come into the dispenser.
Your water eggs are amazing! I was using a glass dispenser and it’s a headache to clean it almost every day. Copper is a great solution!
