About This Product

The Avalon 3 Temperature Self Cleaning Stainless Steel Bottom Loading Water Cooler with Child Safety Lock is made with an innovative stainless steel body. 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. We have incorporated a nightlight that can be switched on from the back of the unit. This will make filling up your cup at night so much more simple and easy. The dispensing area is 12x3x10 inches with 9 inches of space below the spouts. This will accommodate most large cups or bottles. There is a removable drip tray at the bottom of the dispensing area to catch any drips or spills. This water cooler is bottom loading with a cabinet to hold 3 or 5 gallon bottles. The water is pumped from the bottle through the machine. We have also incorporated a self-clean UV function which will automatically clean the machine's water tank with the built-in UV LED. There is also an empty-bottle indicator that will light up when the bottle needs to be replaced. The water cooler is UL listed. The unit dimensions are 41x12x13 inches.

I like our water dispenser. It works fine, looks nice. Keeps the cold, cold and the hot is hot. I like the middle knob as it's room temp. I can easily get the water into the bottom without having to pick up a heavy water bottle. All good.

    Arrived cracked and unusable
    I bought and had this delivered to my elderly Mom, who eagerly waited a week to get it and then another four days for me to visit her home to set it up. When I opened it, I discovered it had a big crack in it that made it unusable. Because I ordered from Home Depot, I wasn't too worried, thinking Home Depot would deliver a replacement and pick up the broken unit. But I was wrong. Home Depot "unfortunately" requires I bring it into a store and order a new one, which will take another two weeks.

      Don't waste your time and money!
      Reservoir leaked all over the kitchen floor after first fill, lucky to have been home to clean it up quickly. Avalon customer service recommended I troubleshoot and conduct the repair myself. Returned to Home Depot no problem.

        Terrible Aftertaste!!
        I have had this for almost two years now. It has a chemical aftertaste after you drink the water.!! I noticed nobody is drinking from it anymore. I just read a review with the same problem. Probably cheap parts. Getting rid of it !! Going back to the top loader I had that one for 23 years

            Better than ordered
            Searched reviews and seems like Avalon is exactly as other described. A very good machine. HD website is a bit of a mess as also in my past experiences. So this time I look at the "black Avalon" and it's shown in stainless. Click on the "stainless" and it shows black. We order the "black", not really knowing which one will arrive but both would work in our home. The "black special addition " with self cleaning arrives. We see this unit on other websites for over an extra $100 so I'm happy. Since I lost in my last what will HD send me game. I figure they owed me one anyway

              Extremely impressed
              I am so impressed with this cooler! I researched water coolers units for three days before I decided on this one, yes I'm a bit obsessive about getting just the right features but also getting a product that has good reviews so research takes me a while. Of course I was still apprehensive because of the negative reviews that stated the buttons being hard to push or the cooler being noisy, or that there was a plastic taste. Let me tell you that every single cooler that I researched had these same comments but this one had so may positives as well as reviews stating the wonderful customer service that I decided to go with it. I have been using it for almost a week now, and I have about two inches of water left in my first bottle, I absolutely love it. Unboxing and setup was super easy. At first I was disappointed that I had tiny scratches on the stainless door until I realized that it had a film that you have to peel off after set up. I installed the water bottle turned it on and let it do its thing for an hour then came back to super cold and super hot water. My thermometer read 40 degrees on the cold and 190 on the hot which is colder than stated, my fridge water is 60 degrees so the temperatures make me very happy. My buttons are easy to push and even though the water doesn't dispense as fast as my fridge it's not bad. My main concern when purchasing beside the longevity which only time will tell was how noisy this unit would be, well it was not what I expected at all, this thing is quiet! My tiny wine fridge makes way more compressor noise than this cooler. I also read complaints about the noise the pump makes pulling the water up, well that is no big deal either, I think that people who experience that issue are not seating the bottle properly and letting the lines lie against the side of the bottle. I also read in negatives "the cold isn't cold or the hot doesn't work" if you read the instructions and do the set up step by step there shouldn't be an issue. One of the last processes in set up is to turn on the buttons for hot and cold on the back of the machine. I'm only speculating that people do not turn those on then feel the features don't work. Lastly I only have one complaint, I wish the unit was taller. I see that I can purchase a 10 inch base to raise the height which 10 inches would be perfect but they are asking almost $70 for it. This riser is black plastic and although a great idea, I feel like that is some serious price gouging. I am restating that I have only had this a week but all in all I couldn't be more pleased.

                Piece of crap water cooler!!!!
                The cold water button randomly sticks and will not stop the flow of water until you take the siphon out of the jug which by that time your floor will be covered in water! I called the (while still in warranty)1-800- 256-0695 and they literally wanted me to work on my cooler myself! I am no tech and they had no other solutions. If you have any problems with this cooler expect no help from Avalon! Take it back to home depot ASAP if you have a button that sticks!
