To clean your water cooler, you will need a few simple tools, including a bucket, a cleaning solution, a sponge or cloth, and a bottle brush. We sell bottled water sanitation kits which contain everything you will require. Start by unplugging the cooler and removing the water bottle. Empty any remaining water from the reservoir and dispose of it. Mix your cleaning solution in the bucket according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Dip your sponge or cloth in the cleaning solution and use it to wipe down the inside of the reservoir and the exterior of the cooler. Use the bottle brush to clean the inside of the reservoir thoroughly, making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. Rinse the reservoir and exterior of the cooler with clean water, making sure to remove any cleaning solution residue.
Once you have finished cleaning, replace the water bottle and plug in the cooler. Allow the cooler to run for a few minutes before using it to ensure that any remaining cleaning solution is flushed out of the system.
In addition to regular cleaning, there are a few other maintenance tasks you can perform to keep your water cooler in top condition. These include:
- Checking the drip tray: The drip tray collects any excess water that may spill from the cooler. Check it regularly and empty it if necessary.
- Replacing the water bottle: Replace the water bottle when it is empty to prevent the buildup of contaminants.
- Checking the filter: If your water cooler has a filter, check it regularly and replace it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
