  3. Environmentally friendly: Reduce your plastic waste by eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles.

  4. Cost-effective: Save money in the long run by not having to buy bottled water.

  5. Convenience: Enjoy cold, filtered water anytime you want without having to wait for the refrigerator to cool it.

Getting Started


Before beginning the installation, make sure you have the necessary tools and equipment. You will need:

  1. A water filter and cooler (check out Awesome Water Filters for great options)
  2. Filter accessories (like a filter cartridge, hoses, and connectors)
  3. A wrench or adjustable pliers
  4. A screwdriver
  5. Teflon tape
  6. A bucket or container


  • Step 1: Choose the right location Find a suitable spot for your water cooler. It should be close to a water source and an electrical outlet. Ensure there is enough space for proper ventilation around the cooler.
  • Step 2: Assemble the filter and cooler Follow the manufacturer's instructions to assemble your water filter and cooler. You may need to attach hoses, connectors, and other accessories. Make sure to use Teflon tape on all threaded connections to prevent leaks.
  • Step 3: Install the filter cartridge Insert the filter cartridge into the filter housing, making sure it is properly seated. Secure the housing with the provided locking mechanism or by screwing it tightly in place.
  • Step 4: Connect to the water supply Turn off the water supply at the main valve. Locate the cold water pipe and connect the provided water supply hose to it. If required, use an adapter to match the pipe size. Wrap Teflon tape around the threads before attaching the hose. Tighten the connection with a wrench or pliers.
  • Step 5: Connect the filter to the cooler Attach the other end of the water supply hose to the inlet on the water cooler. Use Teflon tape on the threads and tighten the connection with a wrench or pliers.
  • Step 6: Flush the system Before using the water cooler, it's essential to flush the system. Place a bucket or container under the dispenser and turn on the water supply. Allow water to flow through the system for a few minutes to remove any air and debris. Dispose of the water and repeat this process until the water runs clear.
  • Step 7: Plug in the cooler Once you've flushed the system, plug in the water cooler and turn it on. Make sure the power cord is not in a wet area and is safely away from any water sources. Allow the cooler to run for a few minutes to cool the water.
  • Step 8: Test the water Fill a glass with water from the dispenser and check its taste and temperature. If the water tastes good and is at the desired temperature, your installation is complete! If not, recheck all connections and consult the manufacturer's manual for troubleshooting.
  • Step 9: Regular maintenance To ensure your water filter and cooler continue to provide clean, refreshing water, follow the manufacturer's guidelines for regular maintenance. This may include changing the filter cartridge every few months or as recommended, cleaning the cooler and dispenser, and checking for leaks.
