  3. Caring for Your Water Dispenser

    Caring for your water dispenser properly is essential. Whether you rent or own your water dispenser, there are a few simple actions you should regularly undertake:

    • Every Bottle Change — Wipe out the waterguard with a clean cloth or towel. Keeping this clean ensures the outside contaminants will not enter your water cooler.
    • Weekly Upkeep — Wipe the outside of the unit down with a clean cloth. Wipe the outside of the spigots and remove drip tray for cleaning. Store your water in a cool, dry place, away from harmful chemicals.

    Doing these simple tasks will ensure your bottled water is fresh and great tasting. Try our maintenance tips to maintain a fresh supply of water.
