Water Dispenser 2020 Buying Guide

Finding the right water dispenser comes down to your individual needs. There are a plethora of dispensers of all types available.

Daily Water Consumption

Estimate your daily water needs before purchasing a water dispenser. This will help you determine your cost of bottle replacement or filter replacements. As a rule of thumb, one standard 5 gallon (19L) jug can provide water to 8-10 people daily. If you need to provide for more people, we recommend additional coolers or a bottleless water dispenser.

Available Space

Plan your space before making a purchase. If you have space near a water supply, consider going bottleless to save cost over water jugs. If there is no available floor space, you can use a countertop water dispenser.

Temperature Requirements

If you’re looking for a dispenser able to dispense hot water for teas or coffee, we recommend an instant hot water dispenser. The more temperature settings a water dispenser has, the more expensive it will be.

Wrapping Up

We are spoiled consumers when it comes to water dispensers. From instant hot water dispensers for the tea lovers to unlimited bottleless dispensers, there’s truly a product out there for anyone, at any budget.
