Beat the heat in this hot summerAquaBlog logo, featuring news and events about water and water services.

In one of the hottest summers on record, I lived with my grandmother in Florida... in a mobile home... in the middle of a draught. So, basically, I lived in a tin box in the middle of a sauna without a drip of water to spare. This was back in the 80's so I couldn't just fire up the internet and find out how to stay cool. Fortunately for us, now, we can do just that.

So, to help you deal with the record heat of this hot summer, I'm going to share a sure fire tip to keep you cool during this heat wave.

Excluding extremes like shaving your head or taping ice packs under your arms, the absolute best way to beat the heat is to drink lots of cold water.

Ice cold water instantly lowers your body temperature from the inside out, giving you immediate relief from the heat. Whenever you drink a glass of cold water, you can feel the cooling sensation travel down your throat and settle into your stomach before spreading the refreshing feeling throughout your body.

Plus, water is necessary to replenish lost fluids through sweating. So, you're solving two problems at once.

If you're like me, you want ice cold water right when you need it. When you're hot, who wants to wait for ice cubes to cool down a glass of room temperature tap water. You want cold water now, right? Well with a free standing bottle water dispenser you can instantly get cold water. The water from a GE water dispenser can get as cold as 41ºF. That's 9º above freezing! Fill up your Vapur bottle with that water and your ready to face the hot summer of 2010 without any worry.

Just contact your local water bottle service, and they will be happy to help you beat the heat of this hot 2010 summer.
