How much does it cost?
A typical water POU / plumbed in water cooler will only cost between £20 and £35 per month. Prices vary according to type of machine required. For example we can provide combination cooler and hot water boiler units which are more expensive than a standard cold and ambient water cooler.

How much does installation cost?
Nothing / Free of Charge – Providing potable / mains water must be within 5 metres and a power point within 1 metre. We are able to install our water coolers across longer distances although an additional charge may need to be applied.

How much do you charge for servicing the coolers that you rent out?
Nothing / Free of Charge – this is included in the per month rental cost.

How often does my machine need to be serviced?
POU / Plumbed in water coolers require servicing every 6 months. If you own a bottled water cooler, then these require servicing every 4 months.

We bought our cooler outright a while ago, do you offer service contracts on machines that aren’t rented from you?
Yes we do – we provide service contracts whereby one of our engineers will attend and service your water cooler for you. A typical service involves the following

• Line change (if required)
