Help! My Water Tastes Bad!

At The Water Delivery Company, we are all about solving problems that may occur with your water cooler. Are you having trouble with the taste of your water that is being dispensed? Never fear, here is a quick troubleshooting guide that is sure to help you out.

Is It Time To Sanitise Your Water Cooler

The Water Delivery Company recommend that you sanitise your water cooler every 12 weeks. We suggest that you invest a good quality sanitation kit which you can order from our website. Sanitising your water cooler is essential as it maintains the integrity and life of your machine.

Did You Use A Contaminated Cloth To Clean Your Water Cooler?

Using a cloth that was previously used to wipe the kitchen counter on your water cooler can often lead to a build-up of chemicals resulting in a nasty smell. Always remember if you are going to use a cloth to clean your cooler, make sure it is clean.

Have You Tried Flushing Out Your Machine?

If your taps have been cleaned recently, try flushing them out. You can do this by letting water run through the taps for 30 – 40 seconds to flush out the contaminants. After this, take a clean cloth and thoroughly wipe your machine.



Have you tried all of the above and are still struggling to get the taste bad of your water cooler to go away? Give one of our hydration specialists a call on 0330 123 3009 or you can drop us an email on and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
