How to choose the right water cooler for you

When deciding upon a water cooler that’s right for you there are a lot of things to consider. If you are looking for a water cooler for your home, you want it to be mess free, hassle free and of course easy to maintain and safe for your little ones to use. There are renting and purchasing options available, so it’s important to decide whether you think you’ll be needing the cooler short or long term. You might be moving in the near future so perhaps in that case you might like to look at your rental options. On the other hand, you might have just bought your dream home and would like to purchase a water cooler for the kitchen.

Then there’s the bottled water cooler versus bottleless water coolers avenue to venture down. The long term benefits of a bottleless (or more commonly known as plumbed in water coolers) water cooler include cost benefits and environmental benefits as you will not need to continue purchasing bottles of water as the cooler will be plumbed in to your existing water supply, which also means you will not need to drop any bottles off to be recycled either. Together, these benefits alone suggest it might be more beneficial for you to have a bottleless water cooler in your home. In some cases, where the plumbing is tricky, a bottled water cooler will do the job just fine. It will still provide your family with safe to drink, healthy, purified drinking water at an affordable price.

Deciding on a water cooler for a school or workplace? Then you need to take into consideration a few factors. For schools, you need to pick a water cooler that the children can access easily. So you may need to go for a shorter, smaller model so that the children can reach the fountain without having to get a chair to stand on.

When choosing a water cooler for the workplace, you need to ask whether you want hot and cold options incase people want to make coffee and tea or whether you want to keep the water cooler purely for drinking water and have your staff go to the kitchen to make their hot drinks.

    Hi, Rob … I am still confused. We use bottled water fro drinking purpose and tap water for daily usage. Is it harmful for my family to use tap water ??? Second question which water is more pure, bottled water or filtered water ???

    I am sorry but we have said nothing like this – we are trying to help people choose the right water cooler for them once they have made the decision to have a water cooler. The type of water you are choosing is not something we are debating here
