Water Cooler Dispensers: How They Work

Wanting to give you and your family better access to great tasting water? You may be considering getting water cooler dispensers for the home, and for good reason. Water dispensers are a great way to provide easy access to refreshing water. However, if you’re never owned or hired a water dispenser before, you may not be aware of how this appliance works. You may be asking yourself, is it safe, and what is the best type to buy? The best way to buy or hire a water cooler is to ensure that you have done your research beforehand, and know which types suit your needs the best. Below, a rundown of what you need to know about water cooler dispensers.

How does a water cooler dispenser work?

Plumbed in or point of use water cooler dispensers work by tapping into your existing water mains and filtering this water source into potable water. These provide an unlimited source of water to the home as it is connected to your water line. It stores water in a tank and heats or cools the water as needed, and is dispensed by the push of a button or the flick of the tap. Because it is built in with your existing water line, this entails installation and regular maintenance of the water filters.

Bottle fed water cooler dispensers, on the other hand, use pre-filtered water bottles as a source, and use gravity to provide great tasting water regardless of what temperature you require it to be. While this means that you need to refill or replace the water bottles in order to get easy access to water using this type of dispenser, it also ensures less maintenance as not only is your water source already prefiltered, but there are numerous services that provide regular water delivery, ensuring that you don’t run out of refreshing water for the household.

Are water dispensers safe?

It’s important to be vigilant about what you and your family put into your bodies, and this is especially true of water dispensers. After all, harmful organisms, mold and mildew, and the like, can thrive in moist conditions, and seeing as this is a water dispenser, it’s good to be on top of cleaning and maintenance. Water cooler dispensers provide a safe and convenient way to drink water for the family, but this is with the caveat that you ensure regular cleaning, regardless of the type of water dispenser you have, be it point of use or bottle fed. Cleaning most water dispensers is usually as simple as wiping off accumulated dust on exposed parts of the appliance, running through detachable parts in soapy water to disinfect for future uses, and ensuring that only clean water runs through the appliance, too. These small effort things can go a long way in ensuring that your water cooler dispenser is clean, safe, and will continue to provide refreshing and potable drinking water to your household for a long time.…
