A cold water dispenser for home and business use is a fantastic way to stay hydrated throughout the day. It’s convenient, always cool and refreshing, and simple to use. We stock a great water cooler that is ideal for domestic and commercial use, and it’s available to hire right now with ongoing support. However, like any modern piece of technology, a water cooler can develop a fault occasionally. Some of these issues are usually simple to fix for a layman, but if you’re unsure about anything call your water cooler company. Let’s take a look at the three most common problems that you may encounter with a water cooler dispenser.

  1. The Leaking Water Cooler:

Firstly, don’t panic, this is actually the most common problem encountered, and that’s why it’s at number one. Most people, automatically assume that this is a serious issue, it could be, but there is a simple thing to check first. Check the drip tray under the tap where the cold water is dispensed and see if it’s full. Sometimes, the drip tray fills with water, and the puddle you see on the floor is simply a drip tray that needs to be emptied. Another cause of leaking could be the back valve, it needs to be completely closed, or there may be some water leakage.

  1. The Water is Not Cool:

This is a frustrating situation on a hot summer’s day when you need a cold drink of water. Every water cooler has a chilling capacity that it cannot exceed. If there are too many people using the cooler in quick succession, it may need additional to time to recuperate before it can cool the water again. If this is a recurrent problem, you may need an additional water cooler to cope with the extra load.

  1. The Water is Not Hot:

Some water coolers, have both a cold and a hot water setting. The hot water can be used to make beverages, but what if the water will not come out hot? A simple fix here could be the switch marked “hot water, ” and this needs to be turned on. Often, during the summer, people favour cold water, and when the weather turns colder, this hot water setting isn’t turned on. Another possible reason for a lack of hot water could be an issue with the mains water supply.
