A survey of the microbiological quality of water sampled from office dispensers in Merseyside found half of the samples to be either unsatisfactory (23/56) or unacceptable (5/56) in terms of guidelines from the Automatic Vending Association of Britain. Factors that appeared to be linked to unsatisfactory microbiological quality were time between filling and sampling and filling on site.
