How much do water coolers cost?
A water cooler doesn’t need to be expensive. Of course, as with any piece of equipment costs will vary depending on specification, make, features and so on. But if you just want to get started with a water cooler that provides fresh, tasty, chilled water you can choose to either rent or buy a water machine.
Renting water coolers
The cost of renting a water cooler can be as little as £1 a week. This is for the rental of the water dispenser machine.
It is important to consider which water cooler you want.
A bottled water cooler requires water refill bottles, whereas a mains-fed water cooler plumbs directly into a water supply, and no bottles are needed.
Buying water coolers
The cost of buying a water cooler varies depending on the type of cooler you are looking for. A simple machine perfect for chilling bottled water starts at £125.00 (ex Vat).
If you wanted a high-end machine that also dispenses sparkling water you can expect to pay more. We love the Biorefresh water cooler manufactured by Culligan at £445.00 (ex Vat).
Whether you choose to rent or buy your water cooler and opt for a bottled or mains-fed machine, it doesn’t need to be expensive. The benefits of drinking better quality spring, or filtered water are great for you and your family.
Renting a bottled water cooler
Starting at £1 a week the rental of a bottled water cooler is a great affordable option and is easy to set up. You simply plug your machine into a normal power outlet, add your water bottle, and you’re all set.
Water bottle prices vary depending on the size of the bottle and quantity. Bottles normally come in 12, 15, and 19 litres. At The Water Delivery Company we sell English spring water, and our most popular is our 19 litre returnable bottle; which is reused many times saving on plastic waste.
Renting a mains-fed water cooler
Typically, mains-fed coolers are more expensive to hire than bottled coolers. However, the beauty of a mains-fed water machine is that once installed, you only pay for the rent of the machine – no bottled water is needed.
At The Water Delivery Company we provide installation for our rental customers. We will consult with you first to ensure you have a suitable water outlet. Once confirmed we will recommend the best water machine for your needs (e.g. office size, number of people, and what type of water you want – chilled, hot, sparkling).
