Best Water Coolers for Homes:

With water being an essential part of everyday life, having a water cooler at home has become an increasingly more relevant topic.
How so?
Well, tap water is far too contaminated for those health conscious individuals wanting to avoid chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine in their water. And bottled water is far too expensive to be considering it on an every day basis to cover your daily drinking requirements.
So now we are left with a water cooler that offers pure, premium filtered water at everyday, affordable prices making it imperative that you have this healthy, cost-efficient necessity.

What to look for in a water cooler for your home?

There some basic yet crucial components that must be considered upon making your purchase:
– Affordability is a must.
– A machine offering clean, uncontaminated better tasting water.
– The option of hot and cold water.
– A machine requiring little maintenance.
– The right water capacity to cater for you and your family.

With that being said, which water coolers are NOT a good fit for your home?

Plumbed-in water coolers are great but are more for your businesses that are seeing a large volume of people everyday.
They are also a lot pricier reaching prices of up to R35 000 per machine, whereas there are cheaper, more applicable options.
These machines need to be plumbed-in and therefore are not transportable and cannot be moved around to adjust for other appliances in your home.

However, there are options for water coolers that are designed for all your ‘at home’ needs:

Now we’re looking at bottled water coolers.
Aquazania’s bottled water coolers have a 4.5l water capacity per hour offering both hot and cold water and can be purchased for R4500.
Their stainless steel reservoirs ensure the preservation of your water, while carrying the capacity to hydrate your family and guests
When your bottle runs out, its not a worry as all it takes is a replacement bottle and you are all set. This will eradicate all your water cooler maintenance concerns. The hygienic non-drip silicone taps are there to ensure no leakage and thus no cleanup and also have the optional child-safe feature to prevent any mishaps. These transportable coolers are also available as floor standing coolers and desktop coolers making placement a non-issue.

Its also important to view your other options and see what is out there:

62 Waters offers bottled water coolers at roughly R2500.
This is a cheaper option and offers features like hot and cold water, as well as 2l of cold water per hour.
This doesn’t quite match Aquazania’s 4.5l per hour but certainly carries a lower price.

Additionally, Empire Purification offers bottled water coolers ranging from R1950 – R3200.
These machines have a water capacity of 2.8l per hour and have the hot and cold option.
Some water coolers even offer functions like a 16l fridge compartment.

In essence,
when purchasing a water cooler for your home, there is more to consider than just clean, purified water.
Take a look at the numerous options and see which is the best fit for you and which water cooler offers the most comfort and convenience.
Make the change and buy a water cooler, then thank yourself later.
