Water Dispenser


Recommended Posts

SkyMan

I might be looking for a new water dispenser so I'm wondering if there is one anyone has seen that is cold/room temp only?  We really have no need of hot water.  Once in a while my wife makes tea or something but the microwave is fine for that.  Yes, I know you can turn the hot off as we've done that for years but I'd prefer not to pay for something we don't use.

Also, for those that may be interested, I saw this unit at CitiHW Lilo-an...

Made by Boston Bay, does cold, room temp, and hot w/a child protector button.  Bottom loading bottle so it shouldn't have the glug, glug noise and no more lifting full bottles up to the top.  p8K is a little steep though.

I have had 2  -  both were chilled and hot water taps. Both had switches at the back so the heating and cooling features can be turned off if not needed.

I don't want hot either, just chilled or room temperature - so I leave the hot switched off. The cooling (eutectic) failed on the first one (American Home brand from Landers) so I bought a Chinese brand off Lazada (stocked in Phils though). Still working fine.

Both were countertop models (not free-standing) and about 2,000-3,000php from memory.

Those manual ones you can buy in the kaking shop - lower groundfloor in 138mall, colonade street
Large ones are around 100php and fill a bottle really fast,

Bought one at Gaisano in Bogo for about 1000 peso..  cheapest one they had..  counter top version but with heater.  Never been plugged in as we don't need hot either.  I thought it would break..  but a year+ now and going strong.  But I gotta lift the bottle.

Does it do cold?  I don't need/want hot.  Unfortunately we don't have much for counter space.

no..  just hot..  we just drink room temperature most of time... or use kettle to get hot. I should likely just cut the power cord off..  as we'll NEVER use the heater.  But I didn't like all the other dispensers when I bought this one..  most were floor standing units..  none of which I much liked..  and all above 5000 peso..  so I ended up buying the one we have as last resort to just to make sure we had one..  and damn..  it's been good,.

I had one that had both, but as others mentioned, didn't use the hot. I could switch it to no cold as well if you just wanted ambient temp water.

 I liked that is also had a decent size storage cabinet built in to the bottom with a shelve. I think I only spent a couple thousand peso for it...

It's not really setting tilted like it looks in the photo. Just bad angle of the camera...

They all have that feature, just don't plug it in.

My thing is that I might want cold but will never want hot so I'd rather not pay for the hot works if I'm never going to turn it on. 

So for now I'm just going to go with the hand pump thing.

For chilled water I use stopper bottles from Landers (buy 1 take 1)  - room temp is bottle stand

Sure, blame the camera...not the listing sailor that took the picture.

Don't know how long it will last but this thing works great.  I'm going to get another one for the garage.  You just have to remember to stop pumping in time cause there's no way to shut it off.

Also, it's a 2 person/step process to fill ice trays but not really a big deal.
