Meet The Team


Rich O'Brien
Owner, General Manager

As one of the founders of Saratoga Pure Water Systems, I am very passionate about delivering a healthier, more efficient, and cost-effective solution to provide drinking water, ice, and coffee solutions to our customers, so they can provide the same to their employees and customers.

Born in Troy, NY, I have lived in the community most of my life. I currently live in Ballston Lake with my wife and children. After graduating from the State University of New York at BUFFALO, I have been in sales locally most of my adult life. I have been an active member of the community as a part of the Albany Knickerbockers Rugby Club and Saratoga Rugby Club. I also enjoy being involved in my children’s youth sports in the Clifton Park community.

When we started Saratoga Pure, we were not only looking for a way to “make a living”. We are also proud to provide local businesses with a valuable service that not only solves the many “small” problems that are often overlooked in providing drinking water to employees and customers, but also provide the tools to enhance a healthy lifestyle in this strange and challenging time of “COVID-19”. As someone who has played competitive sports since I was in Middle School in Brunswick, NY (Tamarac/Brittonkill Schools) I know how important great water is for human performance.

I look forward to growing our business, providing quality solutions to problems and being a good member of the community.

Kristen Lynch, MPH
Sales Representative

As a very health minded individual, I am thrilled to work for a local company that offers a superior product that can improve the health of the company’s employees and customers while potentially saving them money as well. It is a great feeling to be able to do something you love and have your customers benefit at the same time.
My entire career has been centered on preventative health and helping people make the best choices for overall, better health.  Everyone knows that water is essential for life, but our high-quality water can improve your life and health.
I was born and raised in Troy, New York. I received my Master of Public Health from University of New Hampshire and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Albany.
I currently reside in Brunswick, NY with my 6- and 8-year-old children. When I’m not chasing them around, I love an intense kickboxing training, country music concerts, and vacationing at any beach.


Is Your Drinking Water Safe?

Most offices provide their employees with what they think is safe drinking water, whether it be by tap, well, 5-gallon jugs, bottled or some filter system.  Despite best intentions and regardless of the water source, contaminants exist that make your drinking water at risk of being unsafe for consumption which inadvertently compromises the health of employees.

Researchers have found that over 60% of bottle water coolers are contaminated beyond a healthy level.  Why?  Because keeping these water dispensers clean is time consuming and never done, which allows bacteria and mold to build up and contaminate your water.  


Isn't My Water Source Safe?

While your tap and well water may receive a passing grade from the government, this does not mean the water meets the most recent health guidelines.  In many cases, legal limits for contaminants in tap and well water have not been updated in almost 20 years.    The best way to ensure clean tap or well water is to keep pollutants and contaminants out of the source in the first place.   


How Can Saratoga Pure Help?

Now more than ever, we need to protect our businesses and employees in every way possible.  Implementing a water system that provides safe and healthy water is essential.  Saratoga Pure offers you a single-source water purification system that takes tap and well water through 9-stages of filtration including reverse osmosis, finishing the process by adding healthy minerals back into the water.  Because our water coolers are bottleless, there is no more stressing about unwanted delivery people, installation, cleaning, lifting heavy jugs (eliminating the risk of injury and worker’s compensation claims) or storage of large water jugs and bottles.
