Customer Questions & Answers

Does this unit have a mini fridge?

Asked by: OfficeAdmin
No, this unit does not have a mini fridge. The door on the front of the unit has a shelf inside for cups, or other small items.

Is this cooler a bottom loading cooler?

Asked by: LC
No, this unit is designed to hold the bottle on top, upside down. It has an adapter for the newer bottles with the small hole and seal. It is smaller then some units and I would recommend the 3 gallon bottles for it, but it says it can use the standard bottles which are 5 gallons. We got a Greenway (brand) filter with a tank for it (shaped like a bottle), but that will not work unless your tap water is already "decent" quality (e.g., it will not make well water like bottled water).

Can this be used with Glass or Plastic Water Bottles?

Asked by: Dave
I did not think they had glass bottles anymore and I would NOT recommend using glass bottles on this unit. It is smaller than many units like it and for that reason I also recommend 3 gallon vs. 5 gallon bottles, but 5 will work.

What filters are compatible with this product?

Asked by: Vee
This dispenser does not have a filter. I bought the Greenway Water Dispenser Filtration System. It is a water bottle with a filter system inside. It is much better than the bottle I used with my old water dispenser. You do not have to lift this bottle off the unit to fill it with water. The filters should last six months, which is longer than many other filters. The Greenway bottle cost $40., and I feel it is worth this price. The bottle is easy to clean, and the directions are easy to use.

Customer Reviews

Water Cooler/Dispenser is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I could find within reasoon I did a substantial amount of online research before settling on this unit (which when I purchased it had no reviews whatsoever anywhere) which lead me to conclude it was certainly no worse then most others and the name igloo spoke to me of quality without exception and I am pleasantly impressed. I was surprised to find that there is an on/off switch at the top rear [easily accessible] of the unit for both refrigeration and the heating element, hence I thought a mention of the ability to have room temperature water should have been made, it was not. After-all I have a microwave for tea and a refrigerator for cold water so I do not necessarily need this unit to function as such, but having the option is very welcome, and hence I can save on the wasted electric if my other appliances are functioning correctly. The spigots/spouts work well. With the safety on the hot (I get it) to prevent childhood scalding's as does the drip catch, not that the valves drip or otherwise do not promptly stop, they do. It is not over-sized nor under and is built appropriately and sturdily. I would highly recommend the unit and haven't a complaint whatsoever. Oh I never give more then 4 stars but seriously considered giving this unit 5 never-mind that igloo your doing well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good price Working good, after 4 months hot water gone. Covered by manufacturers warraty but need to ship to MI and cost about $70 for shipping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good deal So far so good (2 weeks). We added the Greenway filter unit as a way to save money over the $45/monthly for a service. If we use 3 filters/year we save $300 per year. Water was initially not cold enough (53 deg.), and even though they say you should not adjust it, you can, and must if you want to keep the unit since COLD water is the objective. Just do it very slowly and measure it with an accurate device, and let it settle overnight before adjusting again. Too cold and it will fail (OK?). We now have it as 44 and it is excellent. The hot water was SUPER hot and was fine as shipped. All in all, great price on the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good product I like this water dispenser, except that the water faucets on it are not made well. It would be easy to break them. Especially, if children use them. The handles of the faucets easily slide from side to side, which can be annoying when trying to fill a cup. Other than the faucet problems, this is a good product. It does not take up much space, and you can use a pre-filled bottle of water, or, as I did, you can use a bottle with a built in filter. It has a storage compartment in the front of the dispenser, that you could put cups in, or whatever you might need it for. Igloo is a company that has a good reputation, and hopefully, this product will last me several years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure I would get another, but just a little disappointed Only to let one know that it started leaking all over my floor , but that was after 2 years of use Thought it would last longer Not sure if it is worth getting it repaired as it was inexpensive However, I miss getting the hot water on demand for making tea, and for cooking

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase should have done sooner I really love this water cooler . The bottled water sure tastes better than city water. It is really quick for a quick cup of hot coffee,tea or hot chocolate. I would would really give this product a big thumbs up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for It is cheaply made. The drip container was missing the piece to grip into slot. For the money it will suffice with gentle use.
