There are a number of factors one needs to consider when deciding on a water cooler option.

While plumbed water coolers and bottled water coolers essentially serve the same function, the usage and requirements for each differ.

Space, consumer and cost are the main factors one needs to take into consideration when deciding which water cooler option will best suit your hydration needs.

Bottled Water Cooler

Customers who consume less than 18.5 litres per week would benefit more form a bottled water cooler option as this will be more cost effective. This is important when taking into consideration the amount of consumers the water cooler will be supplying as it will become cumbersome to keep replacing the bottle if more than 10 people are using the bottled water supply.

Although both plumbed and bottled water coolers take up roughly the same amount of floor space, a bottled water cooler might be a better option for you if your space is limited because it can be moved easily.

Bottled water coolers may require storage space for stored bottles. It is also necessary for bottled water coolers to be placed near a power supply in order to keep your bottled water fresh and cool all year round.

We offer a range of counter top bottled water coolers and floor standing bottled water coolers to suit your needs.

Plumbed Water Cooler

In terms of cost, a plumbed water cooler is often a better option as it allows you to save on long-term water costs.

Plumbed water coolers do not require water storage space as they are connected directly to your mains water system thus cutting down the delivery costs of water bottles. The benefit of a plumbed water cooler is its constant supply of water without having to wait for refills.

Our plumbed water coolers are also available in bottleless floor standing water coolers or bottleless countertop water coolers.
