For the longest time we have wanted a water dispenser for our kitchen. We like to buy and use bottled water, but we were feeling guilty about having to dispose that amount of small plastic bottles each week. I also thought it would be so nice to have a choice between ice cold water or hot water for tea or hot cocoa readily available and from the same dispenser.
But with so many different water dispensers on the market, how do you choose the right one? I was drawn to the aesthetics of the NewAir Pure Spring WAT40 model, which is available in either white or black. The seamless design of this bottom loading water dispenser allows it to blend into it’s surroundings; It looks more like a piece of furniture than a water dispenser and I like being able to make use of the top by adding books or a potted plant.
The setup process was easy; Just insert the valve and flip the switches to turn on the heating and cooling systems.The dispenser is equipped with a powerful, energy-efficient compressor. It cools water to as low as 39°F and heats it up to 185°F.
This unit will accommodate either a 3-gallon or a 5-gallon water jug. You can also run your home water line directly to it. I was able to pick up a spring water jug from a local grocery store which allows us to exchange the empty tank for a full one so I no longer have to feel guilty about wasting containers.
The kids were really excited to start using the NewAir as soon as we got it set up. Featuring stainless steel tanks and BPA-free materials, I can feel good about letting my kids partake. I love the safety feature on the hot valve which requires you to press a button before dispensing any hot water. The removable drip tray is also very convenient and helps to eliminate spills.
We felt that the unit was too noisy to be running all of the time so we chose to turn off the switches for the most part and drink our water at room temperature. When we want to use the hot/cold feature, we will make sure to flip on the switches ahead of time.
This is a great unit and the perfect way to enjoy fresh spring water without all of the waste. The NewAir Pure Spring WAT40 is available in black or white for $249.95.
