Everything You Need To Know About Floor Standing Water Coolers For the Home
Aussie Natural Spring Hot and Cold Water Dispenser Home Office

Have you been thinking about getting a water cooler for your home? Water coolers conveniently provide chilled and ambient, or chilled and hot water, ensuring year-round hydration for your family. But with all the different types of water coolers available, it can be a struggle to choose what is best for you and your family.  

In this article, we’ll go through the different types of coolers, from benchtop, wall-mounted, and bottom-load to point of use, and floor standing water coolers, as well as the benefits of installing a floor standing water cooler with filter at home. 


Floor Standing

The floor standing water cooler is the most popular choice for many, and it’s easy to see why. These floor standing dispensers typically feature a standard 15L water bottle mounted on top of the unit. They’re easy to maintain, with some hot and cold dispensers providing the convenience of hot water at the push of a button, expanding their use beyond just cold drinking water. Plus, for parents with curious little ones, there’s a safety feature in our floor standing water coolers to keep your kids safe from hot water accidents. 

If you don’t want to rely upon bottled water, installing a water filter system at home is an ideal option. Some of the benefits of installing a floor standing water cooler with filter include: 

  • Plumbed directly into your mains water supply 
  • Easy access to filtered cold and hot water 
  • Built-in water filters 
  • Space-efficient  
  • Cost-effective, compared to constantly buying bottled water 
  • Improved hydration for the family 


This compact type of cooler is placed on top of a table, bench or a counter and is smaller in size compared to the other types. The water bottle sits on top of this unit and provides your family with easily accessible fresh, rejuvenating spring water at the push of a button. You can also get hot and cold benchtop water coolers to make hot beverages any time. 


This type of water cooler is seen more often in schools, businesses, and commercial, public areas. Usually placed next to the toilets to ensure close proximity to plumbing, this provides water by means of connecting to the building’s water supply to ensure a continuous supply of water. There is also a refrigeration unit attached to it that requires electricity to ensure the water temperature is chilled. Because of its technical requirements, these types of water coolers are usually only placed where a facility manager can be present to continuously monitor its performance and do maintenance if necessary. 

Point of Use

With this type of water dispenser, you must ensure that your home or office has access to a clean water source. A direct-piping water dispenser, sometimes referred to as Point of Use, connects to the in-house water source for your water supply. However, this entails both plumbing and electrical installations and may run over budget depending on your requirements. 

Water Cooler Maintenance

Because this type of appliance deals with both water and electricity to ensure its functionality, it is important to be careful when planning to do maintenance. The standard cleaning procedure is easy enough to do and involves sanitising your unit after every six weeks or when you change the bottle. With a bit of vinegar, water, and elbow grease, your water cooler will be good as new.  

However, when issues arise, such as your water cooler not dispensing cold water, or the unit not turning on, it is best to contact us on (08) 9308 9400.  

Where to Get Your Floor Standing Water Cooler

Floor standing water coolers are readily available at Bunnings, hardware stores, and even your local electrical appliance stores like The Good Guys. As with all appliance acquisition, getting units that have all the features you may want may be expensive as you are buying the unit for yourself. When getting your water dispenser from these places, keep in mind that you might be required to install the unit yourself, and if things do not work as they should, it may be quite a wait to get the appliance fixed. 

Instead of this, you might want to consider renting a unit from a reputable water company, like Aussie Natural. The units on offer are usually commercially tested and robust, taking up minimal floor space as is possible, and ensures longevity and usability for you and your family not just at the beginning of your renting period. What’s more, some bottled water companies even offer deals and promos upon first sign up, like free bottles of water to get you started on your road to hydration, thereby boosting the value of your investment. Depending on who you choose, some provide free delivery and free unit maintenance for the lifespan of your renting cycle, which means you do not have to worry about running out of water for your family’s needs, nor do you have to worry about the unit breaking down and being unable to fix it.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
