Water Cooler Overflowing – Causes and Remedies
The reservoir of your water cooler is made from durable stainless steel; for this reason, a leak typically originates from the water bottle. A vacuum seal is required to prevent your water reservoir from overflowing. If there is a pinhole or crack in the water bottle, the seal will not be created and will result in a leak.
Unfortunately, simply taping up the pinhole or crack will not suffice; the bottle itself will need to be replaced.
How to Stop a Water Cooler Leak
Remove the water bottle; if the bottle is full or near-full, drain the water through your water coolers’ taps until visibly empty.
Drain the reservoir entirely by holding down both the cold and hot spigots / taps once the bottle has been removed.
Place a fresh bottle on the water cooler.
Watch for leaks. If none occur, you know that the first bottle caused the leak.
It might be a good idea to mark the damaged bottle to alert the company who supplies the bottles that this one is faulty.
