Help! My Water Cooler Has An Odour and The Water Tastes Odd

“Help! My water cooler has a strange odour and the water tastes odd!” Is something we hear now and again at The Water Delivery Company. Do not fear this is something that can happen to your water cooler, however, it is terribly simple to fix. Find out how to get rid of that funny smell and slightly off taste coming from your water dispenser below:

Has Your Water Cooler Been Sanitised Recently?

If yes, then this could explain the odd taste coming from your dispenser. This is not harmful to you and normally will go away after a few days. If this is bothering you, you can flush out the taps. This will normally help get rid of it.

If no, then maybe it’s time to sanitise your water cooler. If you don’t sanitise your water dispenser on a regular basis, then this can cause odours to develop. At The Water Delivery Company, we sell a sanitisation kit which is terribly easy to use. You can get your very own here.
