Your water cooler water has run out and you are not sure where to refill water cooler bottles. Don’t panic, there are few things you can do to maintain a healthy supply of drinking water for your water dispenser.
Sign Up With A Trusted Water Delivery Company
If you want to deal with the carefree way of refilling your water cooler bottles, it’s as simple as signing up with a company that delivers water to your doorstep.
You can choose between 18.9 litres water bottles and 11.4 litre water bottles depending on your water demands. Generally, when you sign up with a water supplier you will have to pay a deposit for each water cooler bottle you request. This deposit is paid once off and thereafter you will pay a small delivery fee every time you need your water cooler refills.
It’s important to specify how much water you will need for your environment for the long run. If you are unsure how much your office will need, just give your water supplier a call and they can help find the right quantity for you.
Refill and Refit Your Bottles
Some people prefer to refill their own water cooler bottles. This process is really tricky and does not come recommended. If this is an avenue, however, you want to explore you can purchase push fit bottle caps for your water bottles. These are designed to fit most water dispenser bottles (11.4 litre and 19 litre) and are self-piercing.
The other downside of refilling your water cooler bottles with tap water that has not been processed could affect the integrity of your bottled water cooler. Tap water likely contains lime-scale building components that directly affects the taste and quality that the machine produces. To top it all off, tap water quality is generally quite poor in taste and quality.
Is There Another Alternative?
Why bother signing up for a water delivery service or even going through the fuss when you can invest in a mains water cooler? These machines are bound to save your hassle, time and prolonged water bottle refilling costs. They are directly connected to the mains water supply and offer a constant supply of drinking water. They can be fitted with water filters to improve the taste and are able to chill and heat water.

Although our articles generally focus on all things water dispenser related, we thought we would debunk an interesting topic that we all have always assumed to be an absolute. Do restaurants really have to provide you with water free of charge if you ask?
Although this is a right, the rules are a little more crossed then people would generally think – actually not all establishments have to give you a glass for free.
A Common Misconception – Free Water
Restaurants don’t necessarily have to serve free tap water. Only establishments across England, Ireland and Wales that serve alcohol do. Weird, right?
According to the Licensing Act 2003 *Updated in 2014 (Mandatory Licensing Conditions) restaurants in England and Wales who serve alcohol are required to give customers free tap water (different act from Scotland, but same legislation). So those that do not fall under this legislation are not legally required to.
Relax… most restaurants do serve alcohol so you should have access to free tap water but that is not guaranteed. It’s important that you also bear in mind that these rules do only apply to paying customers.
Can Restaurants Charge For Filtered Tap Water?
There is no requirement that states that tap water needs to be filtered before serving a customer. Restaurants can or generally do charge for filtered drinking water. Although establishments that serve alcohol have to serve free drinking water there is not hard rule about filtered versus unfiltered water.
Difference Between Filtered And Unfiltered Water?
It is argued that filtered water tastes better than tap water as it has gone through a process which remove impurities that often create a bad taste. Filters greatly reduce the number of chemicals and other substances that you find in your tap water and generally retains minerals like zinc, magnesium and calcium which are beneficial to your body.
Looking For Filtered Water For Your Home Or Office?
When you not enjoying an outing to your favourite establishment remember to stay hydrated. So, whether you are at home or your office remember to ensure that you have access to drinking water and even filtered drinking water at that.
Water dispensers have become a popular choice in the work environment due to workspace hydration demands, it’s also a place where employees gather and share news, and network whilst filling up their cup or bottle.

Finding the right hot and cold water dispenser for your environment takes a bit of thought. Do you buy or do you rent a water cooler? What will be sustainable in the long run?
Pressure Coolers are here to help you find the right hot and cold water dispenser option for your workplace.
Did You There Are Two Types Of Dispensers?
Bottled Water Cooler
A 19-litre or 12-litre water bottled sits normally on top of the water cooler. Water then flows into the cooler and is fed into separate chilling and heating reservoirs. Water is then dispensed through the appropriate taps. This is the type of water cooler you will find in most office spaces.
Mains Water Cooler
This type of water cooler is also known as a plumbed in water cooler as it is directly connected to the mains water supply. These models can have water filters installed to rid the mains water of any impurities or contaminants.
Bottled water coolers and mains water coolers also come in floor standing or counter top models. Counter top units are smaller than floor standing models, but still have the same capacity as the larger versions.
Water Cooler Temperatures
Most water coolers come in two options – cold and hot or cold and room temperature. Water coolers with hot options often maintain a temperature between 89°C and 92°C for safety reasons.
Water Cooler Capacity
Water coolers come with different cooling and heating capacities. In order to understand the capacity of a water cooler suppliers use cups per hour.
Understanding the drinking water demand of your office or staff will help you determine what type of water dispenser is ideal. Mains water coolers generally have a higher chilling and heating capacity compared to their bottle fed counter parts. But don’t be fooled by a bottled water cooler’s capacity!
Water Cooler Designs
Water coolers have come a long way from their traditional white simple design. Nowadays, you can find modern designs that come with numerous functionalities.
Did You Know You Can Purchase Or Rent A Water Cooler?

Children between the ages of 9-12 should be consuming 7 glasses and ages 13+ should be consuming 8-10 glasses of water per day.
