No. You must purchase the water and container separately. They also are sold at Home Depot. Exchanges are $6.99. And the first time purchase of bottle and water without exchange is around $14.00.

No -- hopefully you have a local exchange place or a beverage distributor nearby; otherwise enjoy parting with twenty + to amazon for a few ounces of plastic. My local walmarts seem to have gotten out of the exchange business -- I remember not paying anything obscene like twenty there, and, they came with water.

That should work fine there is a long metal (adjustable) straw that goes into the container that sucks the water up 8nto the cooling/heating dispenser. As long as the secondary container fits in the bottom, it should work fine

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy bottle replacement I received the water dispenser today, it is fairly heavy approximately forty pounds. The directions stated that if the unit was not in the upright position when it was delivered (which mine was not it came UPS) it must be left in the upright position for approximately twelve hours before turning on. After the letting it sit for twelve hours it was very easy to install the 5 gallon bottle of water in it the bottom door is magnetically attached and comes completely off,In a few hours I had nice cold water. I then tried the hot water it takes a couple of minutes to heat up (power saver feature) then worked great. August 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful new kitchen item This deluxe full-size stainless steel water cooler dispenses hot, cold and room temperature water. Features fingerprint resistant stainless steel cabinet, and easy to use push buttons controls, LED nightlight and ready to dispense indicator lights. This unit complements the decor of most kitchens with other stainless steel amenities. The on-demand energy saving feature rapidly provides steaming hot water without the cost of constantly re-heating water. This is great for making hot soups and/or hot beverages. Another nice feature is the easy to use push buttons with a childproof safety lock for hot water. Uses either 3 or 5 Gal. bottles of water, bottom loading, so no more heavy lifting for me. July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, easy to use, no more bottles to waste and energy efficient, perfect Got it shipped fast, well packaged, easy to take out, very light to handle. Once unpack-aged it looks great, no fingerprints on the stainless steel. We really like the feature that it gives you not only cold or hot water, it also gives you room temperature water so no more mixing the water to get the room temp. Another great feature is that it can hold 3 gallon bottles as well, since the 5 and 4 are kind of heavy for my family to carry. In the back there is an adjustment for the temp of the water so it comes complete. We do not like to waste a bunch of bottles so this is the best solution and the dispenser looks great. Overall great quality August 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No more flipping bottles. I've had several other top load water coolers and this one is 100% better. Very reasonable for the price and the features are all there. Low water indicator, and indicators for both the hot and cold temperatures. I like that it will not constantly heat water all the time, and allows you to press a button to heat the water, and then if not used for a while, will stop heating water. It only took a minute to heat back up, so about as long as I would wait for a microwave. I do wish it had a setting for how long to keep heating before it stops, but this feature saves electric and water from evaporation. The cold water cycles too, so this unit seems to be very thrifty on energy. It even has a room temperature water option if you don't need hot or cold water. The bottle feed tube is adjustable for different size bottles, but the cap does not actually clamp to the top of my brand of bottle, it just sits on the top, which is fine as it will not shift easily. The door is held on with magnets, so you don't need to worry about hinges opening the access door a specific direction and needing additional clearance, and inside the doorway is a door sensor to shut down the system when the door is open. I will say that I hate Glacier Bay manuals. I like to read my directions and these are all pictures that are not always easy to interpret. The manual must also be supplemented with a couple placards as the manual does not discuss how to adjust the tube length at all. August 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Dispenser Out of the box, this dispenser requires no assembly, simply plug into the wall receptacle, place the water bottle in and it gets to work. The appearance is very stylish and it blends-in well with black OR stainless appliances. Compared to a top loading mechanism, this dispenser does not overwhelm the space since the bottle stays hidden in the bottom cabinet; in fact it complements the decor. This is what I Iove the most about its appearance. 2nd, the loading process itself is very easy on my body as I do not have to do any lifting and flipping of the bottles. The bottle slides in and metal pump draws the water when it needs. Operation is simple with its dedicated hot and cold buttons with a safety feature on the hot button so there is no accidental dispense by anyone. The thermostat in the back works well and adjusts the water temperature fairly quickly. For HOT setting, it draws only 1150W, with that it has no trouble running on a 15 amp circuit. With COLD setting, only 74W. I see it as a great fit for mid to large sized kitchens, reception area of small businesses & practices. August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Best OOOH Boy!!! The best dispenser ever because I no longer have to aim the bottle in the little hole and I no longer need to clean water splash. This dispenser is very easy to use, simply open the bottom door, slide the bottle, insert the pump line and enjoy the cold water. The water temperature can be controlled from the back of the cooler. Its very quiet with minimal noise when the pump draws the water. The pump comes on for a few seconds. Overall, excellent. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase ever!!!! We put this in our fifth wheel, no more carrying gallons of water, every weekend. we only have to purchase two 5 gallons jugs, and they last a long time (our well water up north has a rotten egg smell). This bottom load water dispenser it makes life so much easier, you remove the magnetic door on the front, it very easily comes off (no hinges to break) and insert the drinking straw and slide the water bottle into place. It is as easy as that. I love having not to try and lift a water bottle on the top. We love this unit. It has hot water with child proof button, room temperature water and cold water. We actually refill our 23.7 ounce water bottles (fits under the spout with room to spare) to save on plastic going into our landfills! Going to purchase another one for home!! July 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product The water dispenser works just great. It was so simple to get set up and started working immediately. June 24, 2016
