Bottles Water Coolers vs Plumbed in Water Coolers vs Drinking Fountains vs Boiling and Chilled Taps
Bottled Water Cooler
If you consider the Aquazania bottled water cooler, you are opting for quantity over quality. Nothing measures up to the taste offered by Aquazania bottled water. And there are no maintenance costs on our bottled coolers.
Why? Firstly, because our modern Aquacoolers are fitted with an internal air filtration system. This system prevents bacteria from entering your machine – negating the possibility of contaminated water, or the infiltration of unwanted contaminants into the machine itself. This system also allows for the preservation of our famous purified water – giving you the best possible taste without any unwanted odours either.
All Aquazania water bottles use a unique, single-use bottle cap; this means that from when your water comes off our production line, until it is inserted into your water cooler, there is no possibility of anything making its way into the bottle, or into the machine once the bottled is replaced.
Plumbed in Water Coolers
Aquazania also has a large range of Plumbed-In (or mains-fed) units. These water coolers are plumbed directly into your water mains and offer various levels of filtration, which is absolutely vital for healthy, pure water delivery.
Plumbed-in coolers can serve many more people in a shorter time-frame as it has no limitation of bottle size. You have access to chilled or heated water in a much larger capacity. For instance, a large corporation would find better use out of this than having to wait for hot or cold water from a bottled water cooler.
So here, you are opting for quantity over quality.
Also, some plumbed-in machines offer one thing that bottled-water coolers do not; they are capable of producing hot, cold and ambient temperature water – as well as carbonated water – something to consider if this is one of the things you want form your water cooler.
Maintenance is a key area of differences between various models, but users need to know that there will always be the need for some regular maintenance, and should be prepared for the related costs for plumbed-in coolers. Remember, there are NO maintenance costs for bottle Aquazania Bottled Water Coolers.
Drinking fountains are perfect for public spaces and high usage areas (parks, schools etc.). No electricity is needed, they are environment friendly as the number of disposable plastic bottles is saved from landfills, they are low maintenance and low cost. There is also a possibility of using the run-off for watering plants.
Drinking fountains are highly functional but not recommended for indoor use.
Boiling and Chilled Taps
Now, Boiling and Chilled Taps: Boiling and chilled water taps need professional fitting.
They sit on the worktop, have to be plumbed in and the water tanks need to be connected to electricity to work.
Furthermore, not all boiling taps provide boiling water. There is a subtle but distinct difference between boiling water taps and hot water taps. Boiling water taps deliver water at 100ºC; hot water taps deliver water just shy of that. As a consumer, you may not notice a difference, but if you’re fussy about how hot your morning coffee is, you will.
Boiling water taps provide households with the luxury of instant hot water without the need to use any kettles or add to household bills from boiler use. Some can act as just a kettle separate to your ordinary tap, and some are all-in-one, replacing your existing one.

- Plumbed in Water Coolers the ideal office cooler solution that saves you money and helps the environment. Quantity over quality of water.
