Whirlpool Commercial Water Cooler 8LIECH-SCSSFP-5W via Amazon
Whirlpool 218LIECH-SCSSFP5W is the latest solid commercial grade bottom loading type water cooler with a full stainless steel water dispenser and self cleaning feature that produces icy cold and super hot water. It is a BPA free and an Energy Star qualified unit that will help save on electricity bills as it uses half the regular electricity. The 6th Sense self cleaning feature is automatic and uses unstable oxygen injections to destroy viruses and bacteria in the water- so there will be no water contamination by bacteria as there is no damp area for bacteria to grow like in regular coolers. You will see on the LED panel with 5 LED indicators when hot and cold water are at ideal temperatures and you will also see when Oxy3 Self Cleaning is on but you can not turn off the LED light. It looks classy and high end from different angles in sparkling stainless steel exterior and black trim and its curved design that gives it an upscale look and feel, so you can see the curved front from any angle, weighs just a bit over 40 pounds with dimensions of 15 x 12.6 x 40.5 inches. It has the fifth generation bottom loading with a solid commercial water pump along with a siphon that does a great job of getting almost all the water in the bottle- much more than other brands and you can use it with both the 3 gallon and 5 gallon bottles. Bottom loading is actually a great feature for saving you from having to lifting up a heavy water bottle and placing it on top and the not so pretty water bottle will not be out in the open and has a deep drip tray for two cups of water.
Water temperatures are consistent and precise, hot water is very hot and is good for making tea, coffee and soups (kept at a steaming hot temperature with the patented HotBoost technology that injects preheated water in and produces 1.4 gallons of very hot water) and the cold water is much colder than what you can have in other water coolers as there is a big chunk of ice formed inside the water tank with the Glacial Chill technology and you can have really nice and cold water whenever you want, especially in summer (produces 1.6 gallons of very cold water). Whirlpool Water Cooler is a very good quality product and is designed to last longer than normal with the compressor and thermostat cycling 30 times less than other brands thanks to the special cooling system technology and the pump working at much less than its normal capacity (not putting pressure on the motor) and the commercial design with a robust steel frame, cold rolled steel sides, resistant water faucets that don’t break off with normal use and can carry more than 300 pounds of weight (hundreds of pounds of pressure on top) and it will survive many many years of heavy and frequent use easily. As a useful security feature you can turn off the hot water with the Resource Saver switch at the rear when you don’t need it so the hot button is safe for kids. There is no risk when you run out of water in the bottle as the dry operation is provided with the durable heating technology and there will be no calcium accumulating on the internal heating elements with the patented external heating disk. Whirlpool Water Cooler is sturdy, beautiful, functional, quiet with very little noise during cleaning mode or when changing hot and cold cycles, offers great tasting water at optimal temperatures- very cold and very hot and is a high end heavy duty product at a fair price.
