Product Review

Similar to other Avalon water coolers, this new Avalon water cooler has an innovative stainless steel body, which removes the typical taste of water that comes with plastic. Plastic-tasting water is a common thing among water coolers.

Its sleek look is an aesthetic mix of stainless steel and black. The water cooler can fit in any home, office, or anywhere else you can think of. One feature that stands it out from an average water cooler is its three temperature settings.

This water dispenser is easy to install. In fact, you will not need any assistance from a professional to install it.

Cold and Hot Water Cooler

While many water coolers stick with the popular dual-setting (hot and cold), it includes an extra option, which is the room temperature button. This saves you the stress of mixing hot and cold water to get your preferred water temperature.

It takes a short time (about 15 minutes) for the hot water to reach its optimal temperature. The hot water it dispenses saves you the trip to your gas stove to brew tea or other steaming hot beverage.

The cold water takes considerably longer to reach its optimal temperature. So it’s the perfect solution for accessible drinking water for the benefit of your entire family or your colleagues.

Water Quality and Filtration

This water dispenser comes with a 2-stage filtration system that eliminates harmful germs or contaminants from your water. This bottom-loading water cooler features multiple layers of a sediment and carbon block filter.

They are durable for up to 6 months or 1500 gallons of water, which means you will need to use the full capacity of the bottled water up to 300 times before the filters will need to be replaced. That’s literally an uncountable number of large cups and pretty durable if you ask me.

Self-cleaning Ozone Feature

This water dispenser also has a self-cleaning ozone feature for prolonged water purification and dispenser cleaning. This feature is key to the maintenance of this water cooler.

The system also comes with a complete and easy-to-use installation kit with NSF Certification, Energy Star Approval, and UL Listing.

Performance

The cooling compressor is highly efficient, and with the optimal temperature it can reach, adding ice cubes to your water won’t be necessary. The hot water faucet also has an optimal temperature that few dispensers can match.

One of the most amazing dispenser features is the night lighting. Its built-in nightlight makes you see the cold and hot water spout clearly when it’s dark. This dispenser can also be attached directly to a water line, and it doesn’t require you to install a drain.
