No. We’re that confident that you’ll see (and feel) the benefits of a mains fed water cooler or hot water boiler without needing a contract.
No. We use food grade flexible plastic piping that allows us to ‘plumb you in’ a lot quicker and easier than rigid pipes. All that’s required is an electrical outlet for the cooler or boiler. We offer a range of free standing or table top coolers and boilers so we’ll have one that is suitable for your premises.
Delivery and installation is free throughout the UK.
Very little maintenance is required. Unlike bottled water systems that contain no chlorine, our mains fed coolers only remove the chlorine at the time of dispensing. This means that harmful bacteria and fungi cannot grow inside the unit. In comparison bottled units can act as an incubator for all sorts of nasty bugs that you wouldn’t want to drink. You’ll find our mains fed water coolers in an increasing number of hospitals and schools.

We provide free sanitisation twice a year for all water coolers. Our engineers will also service the unit and replace any worn parts at the same time. If you ever have any questions we operate a 24 hours advice line staffed by UK based operators who are happy to answer your questions.
