Finding a good water cooler review nowadays can be pretty difficult. There are literally thousands of different types of coolers out there and the great majority of them don’t work very well. There are some though that does work very well and are a great buy. So what are the qualities you should look for when reading reviews of these different kinds of coolers? Here are some tips to help you find the best water cooler for you and your family.
Type – First you need to find a water dispenser that has a decent variety of water dispensers in it. It is very easy to get overwhelmed with all the different choices out there. Just know that there are a few different types of filters and each one will have its own set of benefits. The more filters that a water dispenser has, the better for you since you will be able to get more clean water. The fewer filters, the more likely you are to miss an important moment in time. So focus on getting a water cooler dispenser with at least a couple different filters.
Types – Second, you need to focus on the kind of bottom-loading water dispenser that you want. There are bottom-loading units that take water bottles directly into the refrigerator while others are bottom-loading with a sink and a top-mounted cooler. You can also find bottom-loading coolers that have a bottom-mounted cooler that has a freezer on top of it for cold water bottles. These are great if you often host parties and other get together where you might want ice-cold water bottles. If you only want cold water from time to time, a bottom-loading cooler is fine for you.
Types of Refills – Finally you need to focus on what kind of refills are available. You should make sure that you get a water cooler with an internal water line and one that does not use an external tap. Also, make sure that you get one that has both the countertop and under counter water dispenser. A countertop unit will save space and a small amount of money as well.
Waterline – Some water coolers have a water line on them. This gives you the opportunity to clean the dispenser spouts and lines as needed. Other units do not have a waterline and the spouts are connected with plastic pipes. If you have children or pets, this is not a good choice. The plastic pipes may let in bacteria or other contaminants, which can make people sick. Also, they are not very sanitary.
N SF Certified – You want to check the water cooler that you are considering for certification. The Sanitation Service does test twice a year to determine whether the water dispenser is working correctly and whether it is safe for the residents. They test everything from faucets to the air conditioning system. If the sanitation service determines that the filters need to be replaced, they will require that the filters be replaced immediately. The N SF Certified means that the company has ensured that all of their filters are certified by NSF.
