Office Worker Disgusted To Discover New Water Cooler's Source Is The Toilet

When it comes to an office, just about everyone tends to use two things - the bathroom and the water cooler. Typically, the two aren't really connected but at one office, they are just a little too closely related for some people. An employee there posted a video on Twitter of their new water cooler. The fancy, advanced dispenser is set up to give out cool or warm H2O, but the video investigates just where the water is coming from, and the answer is a little disturbing.
The employee follows the line that goes into the back of the cooler. It is coming from the nearby bathroom. The video shows the line goes around the door and strangely, under and past the sink, bypassing the water pipes there. Instead, the line keeps going to the toilet, where it connects in back of the porcelain.

The thought of drinking toilet water is enough to gross anyone out, and much of the reaction to the tweet centered on that:
I smell an outbreak😂😂— Xay Lavish🤙🏽😈 (@Yeoo_Xay) September 25, 2019
That is disgusting— 🦂 (@wutangzakk) September 25, 2019
😂😂 looking like a “bring your own water” typa workplace— Sagittarius (@19Quan14) September 25, 2019
However, other responses pointed out that there is nothing wrong with this set-up:
it's literally the same water dude— DuderBro (@BigManDudeBro) September 25, 2019
The water is not coming from the toilet. Water for sinks, toilets, water fountains, and tubs all comes from the same water. As long as the water isn’t coming from the water that flushes then it’s fine.— slop (@jhayden171) September 25, 2019
It’s literally water from the same pipe that feeds the sink. It is not toilet water. 🤦♂️— Arriagaland (@ArriagaLand_) September 25, 2019
Idk how y'all think piping works but this is pretty normal when no water source is near.— Caesar Z. (@SausyCaesar) September 25, 2019
You think we got enough water in the earth to choose what types we put in our water appliances? Lmaoo
Not everyone was buying it though:
Aight so go fill a solo cup up from your toilet tank then, since it’s all good— Maybe: Disappointment (@holyguacanoley) September 25, 2019
However if you’ve ever owned a toilet, you know the tank is not made to drink out of, even if the water flowing in was clean. The tank was probably never cleaned to begin with before install, and they tend to get corrosion build up over time making it even worse.— Maybe: Disappointment (@holyguacanoley) September 25, 2019
No word on if the company is planning to change the source of the water for their cooler.
