Servicing and Maintenance – Taking care of your Office Water Coolers

It’s important, especially in the work place that your office water coolers are regularly sanitised. A plumbed in system should be cleaned every 6 months without fail. If you currently have water cooler installed without a service contract and you’re looking to get one organised, please click here.

If your office water cooler hasn’t been sanitised and had it’s filters regularly changed then bacteria is building up inside not only the water cooler reservoir but in the filter housing too. This is why it’s vital to ensure that the units are regularly cleaned.

Water Cooler Servicing

So, are you looking into getting your cooler serviced? Well, the WHA recommends that you service your bottled coolers quarterly whereas your mains fed every six months. You may be wondering why bottled coolers need more attention, these coolers are exposed to the air every time you swap out bottles, making it prone to the growth of algae.  In addition, the bottles that sit on top are kept at room temperature and fill with air whenever water leaves the tank, this doesn’t help the algae levels either.  Perhaps, you wish to sanitise your own water coolers. If this is the case, you can buy servicing kits for water dispensers.

Wait, why servicing and maintenance of office water coolers important?

When it comes to water coolers, hygiene is of extreme importance and a water cooler that isn’t properly cleaned and serviced can cause serious health issues, like an infestation of bacteria. Bacteria builds up in a water cooler inside of the tank, right near the ball valve system – this is easily fixed. A maintenance visit from a fully qualified WHA technician can identify the places where the bacteria is more likely to grow, then can reduce the level of bacteria keeping your water cooler squeaky clean. A water cooler that isn’t properly cared for regularly also has the potential to break down or become inefficient, meaning it won’t do what its intent for.
