About This Product

The Avalon 3 Temperature Self Cleaning Bottle-less Water Cooler with Child Safety Lock is made with an innovative stainless steel cabinet. It offers a choice of 3 water temperatures. The machines highly efficient compressor makes the cold water crisp and ice cold at approximately 47° F without the need of adding ice cubes to your drink. The hot faucet is hot enough to cook one's tea or coffee or any other steaming hot beverage at approximately 185° F. Due to the extremely hot water, we've added a child safety lock on the hot water faucet. There is a built-in nightlight making the water spouts clearly visible in the dark. This water cooler is bottle-less with an NSF certified activated carbon filter (listed as model Avalon A4FILTER) and a sediment filter (listed as model Avalon A5FILTER) in the cabinet and a water line that can be attached to your water source. The water is taken from your water source and filtered through the filters and then through the machines hot and cold water tanks. The filter will purify the tap water eliminating any chlorine, lead, rust, and bacteria. There is a built-in leak detector to monitor the water flow from the water source into the machine. We have incorporated a self-clean UV function which will automatically clean the machine's water tank with the built-in UV LED. The water cooler is UL listed. Setup is easy and the unit can be connected directly to your existing sink water line. All parts necessary for installation are included.

  • INSTALLATION KIT: Full installation kit consisting of 20' of 1/4" tubing, 3 way plastic 1/4" push connect adapter, under sink 3/8" adapter with shut off valve, filter flushing adapter, and detailed instructions with illustrations.
  • DUAL FILTRATION: Patented Dual filters are included with the water cooler. This consists of a Sediment filter (listed as model Avalon A5FILTER) and a Carbon Block filter (listed as model Avalon A4FILTER) which will last 6 months or 1500 gallons.
  • THREE TEMPERATURES: Three temperature settings allow you to customize your drinking experience. This dispenser features a crisp cold, cool, or piping hot output
  • BOTTLELESS: Our water cooler is bottleless and will reduce the cost of constant purchases of water. The water is filtered with our dual filtration system consisting of a sediment filter and a carbon block filter.
  • SELF CLEANING FEATURE: The self cleaning UV feature sanitizes & purifies the dispenser, which prevents the accumulation of harmful germs & bacteria for your safety.
  • LIGHT THE WAY: Our built-in nightlight makes the water spouts clearly visible at night & has a replace filter indicator that lights up when the filter needs to be replaced.
  • CHILD SAFE: This product is UL/Energy Star Approved and features a child safety lock on the hot water spout so the entire family can use it worry free!

    A:  This doesn't use a water bottle. It taps into your home water line and then filters the water.

      Happy with the cooler so far. It came with all the parts needed to install. It does need pretty good pressure to get a good water flow. There was an old copper water line in place that went to an old ice maker. I tried connecting to that, but there was not enough pressure/flow. I connected it using the valve that was supplied with it, and it works well.

      I purchased the previous model that only had one water filter, the A5 Bottleless model. I have given it four stars on my review, but since then I have changed my mind. I bought it in January 2018 and the unit died in July 2019. It had some good features but the reliability wasn't there nor was there any good tech support. In July 2019, the unit hot water side died and didn't produce any hot water at all. About a month later, the unit wouldn't draw water into the cold side at all. There's no reset switch on this units and tech support didn't have any answers on how to fix the unit. All they wanted to do was sell me another unit, but I declined. I have purchased an Aquverse counter top unit, and so far this unit is way better plus quieter then the Avalon. The Aquverse doesn't have room temp water, but I can live without that. Beware on this Avalon coolers. I don't recommend them at all.

        I like the unit and has some good features when I was searching for a Bottleless cooler. The replacement filters are a bit costly but they do last at least a year,although they recommend replacing them every six months. The only thing that I am experiencing problems with is the low flow of the room temperature water. It starts flowing good, but after a cup and half it drops down sharply. I have contacted customer support and followed their trouble shooting steps, but all seems fine. In order for me fill anything larger than a cup, I have to depress both the room temperature and the cold buttons at the same time. Also, the LED light is a good idea but not very bright. It could be brighter since the unit is black in color in the dispensing area. The dispensing buttons on the top are a very good idea. I am still considering keeping it. Other than that it's a good unit.

        The AVALON Model A5BOTTLELESS self-cleaning botteless water dispenser is a self-contained unit that as the description indicates does not require changing water bottles. It is plumbed directly into your incoming cold water line. The unit has an on board water filter which claims to remove greater than 97.4% chlorine, 0.5 to less than 1um (which is very small) or 99.7% particulate, 99.99% cyst, less than 0.5ug/L (also very small) lead at pH 6.5 and 0.9ug/L lead at pH 8.5. These are the technical specifications for the units’ filtration capabilities. In layman terms, this is a very good quality filtration system. We have been using the system for about two weeks (and we use it a lot) and the unit thus far has worked flawlessly. The water quality in our opinion is fantastic. The unit features a self-cleaning setting which when activated lasts for approximately 90 minutes and eliminates bacteria and bio-film in the holding tank and water lines. This is an extra added measure of safety for clean pure water. The unit dispenses hot, cold and room temperature water. The hot water is definitely hot enough to brew a good cup of tea. The cold water is chilled to about 50 degrees and is very refreshing. My entire family has used the system and we no longer purchase bottled water which is a huge plus. Not only do we not have to carry and store lots of heavy packages of bottled water, but we are not using tons of plastic which is definitely not good for the environment. In regard to installation, the unit comes with everything you need to set the system up for use. I have attached pictures indicating the plumbing required. Prior to installing the plumbing, ensure that you have shut off your cold water supply and that the two shut-offs, one at the plumbing tee and one where the filter attaches are also in the off position. It literally took me no more than 30 minutes to install this system. The unit comes with a tee fixture that attaches to your existing cold water line and a high quality water line that attaches to the rear of you dispenser. After the plumbing connections are secure, you must install the A4 filter which comes with the system. After installing the filter you would turn your cold water supply back on, open the shut off on the tee and finally open the shut off at the filter. The unit will fill the on board tank at this point. You are instructed to then dispense water from the unit for about 5 minutes which is roughly 2.5 to 3 gallons of water. Make sure to check for any leaks at the connections that you have made as well as the unit itself for any signs of leakage. After dispensing water for the recommended time you may then plug the unit in and turn the cold and hot water switches to on. When the unit is ready, the indicator light on the front will go out and you are ready to use the system. Another great feature is that the on board filter is stated as lasting for approximately 1500 gallons of water. The unit will indicate automatically when a filter change is required. In summary, the unit is easy to install, delivers high quality drinking water (great for coffee too), is extremely quiet. As stated, above, we have used the system for about 2 weeks now and have thoroughly enjoyed this new water system. Personally I would highly recommend the unit if it continues to perform as it has in the time we have had it. At a price of about $300, I feel that it is worth the cost for the convenience, high quality water and as an environmentally sound alternative to water in plastic bottles. I hope this review helps anyone contemplating purchasing a unit such as this. AVALON has made a really nice unit.

        Perfect Filtered Water Dispenser
        It's shipped securely with the display box inside a protective outer box. I was expecting the unit to be heavier because of the on board cooling compressor but at only 43 lbs. It's light enough for anyone to move around and setup. The four feet are not adjustable so it's important that the unit be positioned on a flat and level surface. Unpacking the accessories I found the "drip tray" which is really a drip reservoir. It's about an 1-1/2 in. deep with a red "bobber" which I assume is an indicator of when the reservoir needs to be emptied. The unit snaps into place easily on the front of the machine. The unit ships with 1 filter, 1 extra filter flushing adapter, 1 adapter with shut-off valve and 1 anti-tip bracket. The included filter is rated for 1500 gallons or six months. There's a red indicator light that will blink when its time to change the filter. Home Depot has the replacement filter, model "Avalon Replacement Filter For Bottleless Water Coolers A4FILTER" but I found them for less on a popular auction site. There's also a built-in "Self-Cleaning / Sanitizing" button that should be activated weekly. It takes 90 minutes to run through the cycle. Installation is easy as long as you have a sink and a 15 amp grounded outlet nearby. The included adapter goes between the cold water supply line and the cold water line to the faucet. The 1/4 in. line to the unit pushes onto the "T" adapter and is secured by tightening the nut. I had an existing "T" fitting already installed from an ice machine I no longer needed so I used it. The filter needs to be flushed, for about 5 minutes, using the extra flushing adapter before it's twisted into place on the unit. Connect the hose to the filter, plug in the electrical cord and it's done. It takes about an hour for the cold water to reach optimal temperature and about 15 minutes for the hot water (about 185 degrees). I found that the cold water is crisp enough that, for me, ice is not needed and the hot is perfect for tea or instant coffee. I like them very hot. One Year Limited Warranty for Avalon Water Coolers.

        I love this filter
        I've been using my A5 for nearly 3 years and absolutely love it. The water tastes perfect. I use the cool water the mostly. My kids use the cold water and everyone uses the hot water for tea, cocoa and instant breakfast. When I've had it off for cleaning or otherwise, it's such a let down not to have it available. I can't say enough about my Avalon A5 Bottleless filter/dispenser. When the time comes, I will certainly replace it with a new one. I can't live without it!
