Answer: 
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 57 reviewers.
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 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 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 Great Product The water dispenser works just great. It was so simple to get set up and started working immediately. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk got it home directions said if you laid it on its side don't use it for 12 hrs so next day I installed the water bottle and pluged it in when my wife got home she used it and the water would not stop coming out so I dragged it to the door and threw it in the driveway it was junk July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Great water dispenser. Bottom load makes it easy to change the bottle when empty. I also love the hot water dispenser when I want a cup of tea. Just a few minutes and it's ready. Three levels of water temperature is a nice feature too. Another reason I picked this particular dispenser out is it matches my black and stainless steel appliances. Grandchildren love the cold water after playing hard outside. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a great product....many issues that seems ridiculous Motor is loud when pushing up water to reserve tank. Hot water is not available at all times. There is a button you push first, then must wait maybe 5 minutes. We use 5 Gallon Water Bottles. This machine only uses 3/4" of the water then will shut off. You have to put a new 5 gallon bottle in, save the 1/4 left from the other bottle, then wait till the new bottle is reduced enough to add in the 1/4 balance from old bottle. Yup, pain the in major butt. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3rd time's a charm I ordered this as a replacement to a top loading cooler we have been using for quite some time. I really liked the idea of having the actual water jug hidden, giving a clean look. The first unit I received was defective, it had a leak somewhere near the compressor. Working with Home Depot and the supplier I was sent another unit which was damaged during delivery. Again the supplier was quick to replace it. I now have a working unit. I can only imagine the first unit I received was an exception to the rule, and the second unit was no fault of the supplier and they quickly resolved the issue. Now that I have had a chance to use this I have to say I really like it. The look of a bottom loading unit is so much nicer then a top loader. I turned up the chill adjustment because it just wasn't quite cold enough from the factory for my liking. I now get cold water at 38.5 degrees, perfect! I wasn't sure if I would like the kettle feature for hot water but it has turned out to not be an issue. When I want hot water I press the button and about 2 mins later it dispenses water at around 171 degrees. Great for my morning tea. I can hear it running when it is cooling the water or pumping water from the jug but nothing that is distracting. Even though I have had some issues I would still recommend this for anyone wanting a nice water cooler. July 5, 2016
