I bought this water cooler for our cottage rental property. The previous model we had was a countertop water cooler that proved difficult to load for shorter/smaller people.
The Whirlpool bottom loading water cooler offers excellent features.
- Hot, Room temperature, and cold water
- Loading a 5 gallon jug can be done by almost anyone
- Shorter height allowing for the cooler to be placed almost anywhere
We had read that the water cooler is loud when it is pulling in water or when the compressor is running, Although it does make a noise as it refills or is cooling, it is no different then your typical refrigerator.
The water cooler fit very nicely between our pantry and couch at the cottage.
