What's the point in having filtered or bottled water if your water cooler is filled with bacteria?
You spend a lot of money on bottled water or an expensive water filtration system. The problem is that in most cases, that water gets contaminated when it goes into your water cooler. Damp environments support the growth of bacteria very quickly.
With every passing year, people are becoming more and more concerned with bacteria. And as research shows, almost every water cooler has bacteria levels many times higher than the maximum the government recommends as safe. Not only that, but over 1/3 of household water dispensers have at least one disease causing form of bacteria. The basic reason is that almost no one cleans their coolers often enough. It's just too much work.
As a result demand for self cleaning water coolers is on a rise. Europe now enforces mandatory water dispenser cleaning because of the bacteria issue. And it’s possible in the future that similar laws will be passed in North America. But regardless if any law is passed or not. The fact that it has become a public issue shows how concerned people are.
Hot water disinfection is a new technology based on one of the oldest cleaning principles. Everyone knows that hot water disinfects just about anything. It's used to clean in dishwashers, laundry washing machines, professional steam cleaning vacuums, and even in industrial applications.
This technology generates hot water in the hot tank. A microprocessor controls a solenoid that releases this hot water into the rest of the water dispenser. The computer turns the cold system off during disinfection. The hot tank then continues to heat the water in the entire water cooler until a temperature a little below boiling is reached. The temperature is then maintained in the water cooler for an extended period of time. Allowing for any bacteria, viruses and fungi to be killed.
Afterwards, the microprocessor instructs the solenoid valve to close, and the water dispenser to resume normal function.
This process maintains an extremely clean water system. Like ozone, the hot water travels throughout the water cooler, getting into every nook and cranny exposed to water.
Simple soaping won’t work, since scrubbing cannot be done in the small waterways like the faucet paths and various tubes. This process takes at least an hour to do properly.
Modern research has demonstrated that bleach solutions don't kill all the water cooler bacteria, like once thought. The bacterial biofilm acts as a protective shield for the bacteria cell, and makes them an amazing 150 to 3000 times more difficult to kill, depending on the types of bacteria that are found in the water dispenser. Wiping with bleach solution only works in the areas of the water cooler that can be reached. But the internal tubing still retains bacteria cells which are shielded by the biofilm. So populations return even after cleaning.
The alternative to not cleaning the water cooler is to allow bacteria to develop biofilm slime in the water dispensers. This layer of slime gets thick enough to see with the naked eye. And when that much forms, the water cooler contains many billions of bacteria. Which in turn causes high quantities of bacteria to populate the water. Generally hundreds if not thousands of times higher than in tap water.
And while most water cooler bacteria is considered harmless. A recent study showed that a whopping 36% of household dispensers had disease causing, pathogenic bacteria as well. A high percentage of that being coliform. Coliform bacteria meaning bacteria commonly found in human feces. A healthy adult with a strong digestion may be able to drink water like this, and not see any obvious side effects, except perhaps the occasional stomach flu. Far more at risk are toddlers and young children, and anyone else with immature immune systems or weak digestion.
E coli, Legionella, and other serious bacteria have all been found in water coolers. In order to remove any colonies from your water cooler, you need to use automatic sterilization.
Hot water self cleaning is the best option. It thoroughly cleans the water cooler at a heat that not only kills bacteria cells, but fungus and viruses too. UV disinfection has a serious drawback. It can only kill bacteria that comes close to the UV bulb. Areas that are far away from the bulb, or hidden areas, like the tubing, are not effected by the UV at all. So bacteria can thrive in these areas. Ozone is just as effective as our hot water. But most water dispensers that have ozone aren't sealed properly. Therefore, they release high levels of ozone into whatever room they're in. Which can cause lung damage, and other ailments.
The hot water self cleaning function destroys all types of bacteria, as well as fungi, viruses and protozoa, such as E Coli, Giardia lamblia, Vibrio cholerae, Legionella pneumophila, Cryptosporidium parvum, Salmonella, Campylobacter jejuni, Shigella sonnei, Entamoeba histolytica, Yersinia enterocolitica and even the most heat resistant viruses like Hepatitis A.
Elite Self Cleaning Water Cooler
* Hot water disinfection. The complete advantage when selling against plain, non self cleaning water dispensers. The only water coolers in the world with hot water self cleaning.
* Digital control panel. Allows you to program how often the self cleaning cycle runs. It also let's you know what it is doing in the disinfection process. It's exclusive to the Elite coolers.
* One water cooler supplies an entire office. Makes 2.67 gallons of extremely cold water under 50°F per hour. Side by side tests show that these water dispensers make about 20 times as many cups per hour compared to most water coolers. It has an oversize condenser that makes a thick ring of ice. This causes rapid cold water production.
* The cold tank is highly polished stainless steel. Very reflective, like a brand new stainless steel cooking pot. Compared to the dull unpolished steel most water coolers use, this speaks volumes of very high quality and craftsmanship. At 1 gallon, the size of the cold tank is also impressive, since it has the largest volume out of any bottled water cooler, or convertible to bottleless water dispenser.
* Supplies an entire office of tea drinkers. Produces an incredible 2.12 gallons of steaming hot water per hour. It's huge 1.58 quart tank has a powerful 600 Watt element.
* Don't waste money buying more than one kind of water cooler. This one does it all. It can easily be changed from a bottleless water dispenser to a bottled water cooler. And unlike other convertible water coolers, this one allows you to put your filters inside the front panel.
* You don't need to switch on the light during the night when coming to get a drink. It has a soft blue night light which keeps the faucet area lit.
* The POU system has a dual float mechanism that has been tested to an incredible 500 PSI.
