What to look for from your water cooler service provider

If there’s mould in your cooler it’s a sure sign you’re well overdue a service.
  1. Are they changing your filters regularly? Filters have a lifespan measured by either length of time or litres passing through them – if you don’t change them at the specified time bacteria can start reproducing inside the filter and making its way into to your drinking water. The whole point of having filtered water is to ensure it is safe and potable. If you’re in a large office with lots of people using the cooler then you’ll need to change your filters more regularly.
  2. Are they giving your cooler a thorough clean every three or six months? Whether your cooler is bottle top or plumbed in it should be sterilised every three months or six months. If you have a bottle top cooler make sure it is filled with cleansing solution and left to sit for 30 minutes before being scrubbed and then thoroughly rinsed to remove any chemical residue. Ensure they are sterilising your reservoir and flushing out the condenser too to avoid bacteria growing.
  3. Are they removing taps, flushing them out and cleaning them? This is something which is often overlooked but is crucial to ensure that your water is safe and healthy – from the water source right through to your cup.
  4. Are they storing your water bottles safely? Leaving bottled water sitting in direct sunlight for extensive periods can cause the plastic to start to react and contaminate the water inside. Likewise, if you’re receiving deliveries of bottled water off the back of a truck, wheeled through a busy street and then offloaded into a storeroom it could end up covered in dust and grime – ensure your water is being stored safely to avoid muck making its way into the water.
