Hot & Cold Water Dispenser by Primo
Whirlpool Water Cooler: Unboxing, Review, and Comparison
Water Cooler Buyers’ Guide
The bottle-fed dispenser receives its water supply from a flipped bottle of water placed on top of the water cooler. Inside the water cooler, there is a refrigerant, which is a cooling medium. It circulates in pipes that are near to the reservoir in the water cooler. The water that is inside the water cooler is fed into the reservoir, where the refrigerant is stored.
A compressor inside the water cooler increases the pressure in the pipes. That’s why the refrigerant changes its form from liquid to gas while it moves in the tubes toward the reservoir. The cool gas in the water pipe moves through a valve to make it even colder. The gas refrigerant that is moving in the pipes, has the ability to absorb the heat from the water in the reservoir, leaving it fresh and cool.
Before you can clean out, you must decide which cleaning solution you are going to use. For a gentle bleach solution, add 1 gallon of tap water to 1 tablespoon of unscented chlorine bleach. You can also use a vinegar solution by adding 1 part vinegar to 3 parts warm water. Start the process of cleaning by unplugging the machine from the outlet and removing the water bottle. Check the valve for any dirt and wipe with a sponge that has been dipped into your cleaning solution. Remove the water guard and drip guard and rinse with tap water, wipe with your solution, then rinse and let it dry. Pout out the rest of the cleaning solution into the reservoir and let it sit for a few minutes before draining it. Pour clean water into the reservoir, drain it, and repeat until there is no cleaning solution smell. Once everything is dry, reassemble the dispense and plug-in.
