Basic Cleaning for Your Premium Water Dispenser
Whether you’re using your dispenser for refreshingly cool or relaxing hot water, we recommend the following steps to keep yours in tip-top shape.
Some Tips to Get Started
- Unplug your dispenser from its power supply and let it “rest” for at least 5 minutes before cleaning.
- Never turn your machine upside down or lean more than 45 degrees.
- If draining, allow cooler to sit, unplugged up to 5 hours before draining to avoid injury from the hot water.
- Regular cleaning of the drip tray is recommended.
- Avoid the use of abrasive cleaning aids, such as steel wool, to prevent damage.

Remember, your premium water dispenser is an investment. Regular cleaning is just one step in preserving and maximizing this investment. It’s also important that you utilize the best quality products to avoid damage.
It really is as simple as 1-2-3; for best results follow this 3-step process:
Keep a record of your cleaning schedule as well as the soap and sanitizer used. Before washing, inspect parts (like the faucets and EZ fills) and discard any that show signs of algae growth. After washing, allow parts to air dry before storing in the container.
Wet the entire cooler with water and spray the cabinet and cooler chassis with detergent. If the reservoir is showing signs of calcium deposit, spray it with a citric acid, and then use a scouring pad to scrub the area clean. When rinsing the cooler, use potable water and do so without spraying water directly onto electrical controls.
To ensure optimal use of your water cooler, you can even use this time to inspect individual parts and cooler cabinets for any:
- Signs of damage
- Defective power cords
Tag any worn parts and send them for repair.
