FAQ'S

We are greatly in favour of mains connected coolers for the following reasons:

  • They are much more environmentally acceptable. No lorries driving around the countryside to deliver plastic 18ltr bottles of water, and no plastic bottles
  • They are much more convenient for you, because you do not have to order bottles. The UK mains supply never runs dry, and you do not have to handle the heavy      18ltr bottles and lift them onto the cooler
  • UK mains Water is of the highest quality and often more regularly tested than bottled Water
  • Mains Water cooler are cheaper to run
  • Mains Water coolers require less frequent sanitising than bottled coolers. The UK Water Cooler Association recommends that bottled coolers are sanitised every 3     months, compared to POU coolers which is every 6 months. That has to do with the risk of contamination from hand to cooler with bottled coolers

    Essentially it is easy to look after a water cooler - All the coolers we stock are very reliable and low maintenance, with occasional TLC they will continue to provide you with great tasting water. However, as with any appliance, there are things you should do to ensure the performance of your cooler.

  • Always keep it clean: It's a good idea to keep the outside of your cooler clean and to spray the dispensing- and the touch points (dispensing buttons etc) with a commercially available sanitizing spray. It only takes a minute. We recommend to do this once every three to six months.
  • Sanitise your cooler every 6 months. You can follow our technical blog on how to sanitise your water cooler: Why We Need To Sanitise
  • Change the filters on your POU Cooler every 6 months. It only takes a couple of minutes. If you have used our PFRAILKIT when installing your cooler, all you have to do is to exchange the filter candle FILTCAR
  • Empty and clean the drip tray regularly with soap and warm water. Drip trays have been used to discard all manner of things. Therefore clean your drip tray as often as is necessary.
  • We strongly recommend that all mains fed water coolers are connected to the mains by a plumber or trained individual, using a professional installation rail kit. To read more about the installation rail kits take a look at our technical information: Installing Your Water Cooler
  • Hot water boilers need to be protected against scale, especially if you are in a hard water area. Find out if you are in a hard water or soft water area and which installation rail kit you need, using our post code scale checker: Postcode Scale Checker: Postcode Scale Checker

  • Water is food and needs to be protected from bacterial contamination. The risk of contamination comes primarily from the water cooler tap end through hand to cooler bacterial transfer. Regular sanitising stops the development of bacterial contamination. The UK water cooler association recommends that the cold tanks in bottled water coolers are sanitised every 3 months and in mains connected water coolers every 6 months. Hot water boilers do not need to be sanitised.
