AQA Sodax vs Bibo Water Bar – Conclusion
While both machines are arguably some of the best looking plumbed-in water coolers on the market, the devil is in the detail. The Bibo Water Bar sees limitations in terms of output, in that it is only able to produce either hot or cold water. The AQA Sodax has a definite advantage in that it is capable of producing hot, cold, ambient and sparkling water.
Both machines have child safety mechanisms, as well as water purification systems housed internally. Quantity dispensing pre-sets are featured in both machines.
When it comes to choosing the right machine for you, there is no right or wrong – it’s what fulfils your needs best that will make a machine a better or worse fit for you.
