HydrateM8 sells premium water bottles that help you track, monitor, and improve personal hydration levels.
These hydration tracking water bottles come with a patented schedule on the back, encouraging you to drink smaller but more consistent amounts of water throughout the day. Staying hydrated can result in improved energy levels, a better immune system, healthier skin, and more.
According to the Mayo Clinic, thirst isn’t always a reliable early indicator of your body’s need for water. Many people, particularly older adults, don’t feel thirsty until they’re already dehydrated. This is why it’s important to increase water intake, especially during warm weather or when ill.
Based in Kent, HydrateM8 have recently expanded their product offering to include reusable coffee cups and airtight food pots. Incredibly, these coffee cups have three layers of insulation to keep drinks hot. Their food pots can keep food fresh and hot for eight hours, or cold for 12 hours.

After seeing much success, they came to UK WooExperts, Silicon Dales, to find some extra speed for their online store.
“We have been running WooCommerce since 2015 and have accumulated 230,000 orders,” explains HydrateM8’s Garry. “With such a large database we were finding that some third party plug-ins were struggling to cope with the number of orders, particularly when looking up customers’ previous orders.”
This database issue resulted in slow Add to Cart page load times, with HydateM8’s server struggling to cope during peak transaction periods.
“Our page load times have dramatically fallen, [and we now have] a much quicker admin and a stable server.”
“Silicon Dales worked to identify the exact nature of these slow queries, recommended and actioned a remedy and performed optimization on our website. Our page load times have dramatically fallen, [and we now have] a much quicker admin and a stable server.”
