Cleaning An Office Water Cooler

Step By Step guide in maintaining your office water cooler

If you have an office water cooler, it is important to clean it regularly. How often it should be done varies with recommendations from yearly, to every 6 months every time you change the bottle.

How do you clean your cooler? These are the steps that we use:

Unplug cord and allow the unit to come to room temperature

For Hot and Cold coolers, run some water out of the hot tap after unplugging to cool the water.

Remove the bottle

Empty the reservoir through the faucets. For Hot and Cold coolers, also remove the drain plug at the back of the cooler.  Replace after the hot tank is empty.

Remove the lid of your dispenser

No-Spill tops require a little extra effort to pull off and push on. Some have a locking pin. Some require a partial counter-clockwise turn before removing.

Mix a cleaning solution by adding 1 tablespoon of household bleach to 1 gallon of fresh water

Thoroughly wipe inside of reservoir with cleaning solution and a clean cloth or paper towel.

Fill reservoir with cleaning solution

For Hot and Cold coolers, open the hot faucet until water comes out and top up the reservoir with solution.

Spray a diluted solution of bleach and water inside the faucet spouts

Let stand for 5 minutes, and then drain through the faucets. For Hot and Cold coolers, also remove the drain plug at the back of the cooler.  Replace after the hot tank is empty.

Fill the reservoir with fresh water

For Hot and Cold coolers, open the hot faucet until water comes out and top up the reservoir with fresh water.

Drain through the faucets

For Hot and Cold coolers, also remove the drain plug at the back of the cooler.  Replace after the hot tank is empty.

Remove the air filter from the top.

Clean the top in a clean sink filled with fresh water and a mild bleach solution.

Rinse the top with fresh water, and dry with clean paper towel

Replace air filter, cooler top, and bottle

Open faucets one at a time until water runs from each

Plug unit back in

Water should be chilled and hot, if so equipped in about 1/2 hour.
