Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by edieb Compact and attractive
I have been around several water coolers in my day. This unit by Glacier Bay is a real standout! It is compact, attractive and offers not only cold water but hot water as well. A control knob on the back lets you select the cold water temperature.There is an off and on power switch also on the back to engage the hot water. The only problem I encountered was during the initial cleaning procedure. You have to remove the bottle support collar. I could not do it. It was too hard to get a hold of. My husband was able to remove the collar. From then on everything was fine. The dispenser works quietly and efficiently! I am happy to recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ben62 Great water cooler and heater!
We got this Hot and Cold water dispenser to use at my wife's office. She loves this unit and so do her coworkers. You can get hot or cold water on demand. There is a blue light for cold and a red light for hot. As long as the light is on the water will be either cold (Blue light) or red (red light). The water is chilled and you can control the temperature via a thermostat on the rear of the unit. You can also turn off the heater for the hot water via a switch on the rear of the unit. The hot water dispenser has a childproof feature for dispensing. The whole office is happy with this unit and they all would recommend it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carl Great water dispenser!!
Finally a we have a stylish water dispenser, no more drinking well water!! This unit will hold a 3 or 5 gallon water bottle. It has a thermostat on the back to adjust the coldness of water, very easy to operate with the push of a button. This unit also dispenses hot water, there is a safety switch on the back to turn off the hot water when not in use with a child safety switch on the front. The unit has a red light for hot water and a blue light for cold water. We love this unit, we have been using it for 5 days without any issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cb88 Fits in Narrow Space
This hot/cold water dispenser fits in a narrow space of less than 11 inches wide and 12 inches deep which is great because that was the only space I had left. The instructions had lots of pictures and no words and were a little confusing. The product comes with a bottle piercing tip as some water vendors seal the jugs or have a puncture top to them. The tower came with a collar to help balance the jug and holds the 5 gallon jugs (not included). The hot dispenser requires a switch in the back be turned on. There is an adjustment for cooler temperature. Once step suggest rinsing the cooler / lines with vinegar and water equal parts. The problem was the cooler does not drain 100% so a lot of water was used to flush the vinegar out. It is a nice cooler for a small space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Works better then I expected
Reading some of the mixed reviews I thought It wouldn't work very good but I took a chance anyway. It works great the cold water isn't ice cold but it is plenty cold enough. And it can be adjusted. The hot water has a child safety system that makes it harder for little guys to turn on. The hot water isn't boiling but its fine for hot chocolate for the kiddies. Its smaller then some I have seen but that makes it easier to put the 5 gallons jugs on it. I bought a 3 gallon with a handle (also sold by HD) so that I can get my own free well water. I'm not sure where the UV inhibitor is but that is a big plus. We have one on our pond and well water system. Its stop the growth of algae which could happen if the water is sitting around for a long time.

After having a water dispenser for year and to lift the five gallon bottles on top, this one made it easy. It short and compact but it does hold five gallon bottle. I was a bit worry because bending over bother my back but on it was put in place there no bending necessary. It take a little work to get it started but other than that it works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CMMToolMan Excellent water dispenser
The dispenser came very well packaged and was in perfect condition out of the box. There is a power switch on the back to enable hot water production. The hot water trigger includes a safety release to protect from accidentally dispensing hot water; a good child safety feature. There are two small lights on the front of the unit that illuminate - red when hot water is ready and blue when cold water is ready. The hot water was available in maybe 10-20 minutes. The cold water took a little longer and was ice cold.
The unit is a slim design, very nicely finished and operates quietly.

Despite all of the negative reviews, and being a bit skeptical when the unit arrived, I myself am quite pleased with this hot and cold water dispenser.
It will accept three or five gallon size jugs.
The water can be purchased at my local home depot for about thirteen dollars on initial purchase then it's about half of that when you return the jug for a replacement. That saves money- Even if you purchase the twenty four packs of water at your local grocery store, those savings still don't compare going this route.
As for the cooler itself, it dispense hot and cold water. There is a thermostat control on the back for the cold water, and an on/off switch for the hot water. Child resistant safety switch on the front for the hot water. It's compact and easy to use. Overall a great water dispenser.
