Re: Water dispensers

I bought 2 of the 'bottle in the bottom cabinet' style water dispensers, each with hot, room & cold temp taps. They are generally quite a bit more expensive than the 'bottle on the top' ones - most places we tried were 1,200 - 1,500 TL each. However, we eventually found an offer on line with hepsiburah (not sure the spelling is right but just google). Ours are made by Vestel, gaurentee do for 2 years, work really well (although I drink my hot drinks without cold milk) and cost me just less than 800 TL each.

We just put our hot & cold on 5 minutes before we need it. Originally did this due to safety, as I didn't want to risk my grandson scolding himself with the hot water when we weren't looking. Now we just do it out of habit and also save loads on the electric

Re: Water dispensers

When we lived in a rental property which has these we used to switch them off during the day when we were out at work, I never thought of a timer at the time. Now its just a jug of cold water in the fridge.

Mine has a switch on the back to isolate (off) the hot water heater. I never use that function as it is wasteful, and it is cheaper to boil a kettle rather than have a water heater constantly on.

Re: Water dispensers

The ones where the water bottle goes in the base of the machine are really easy to set up and far easier than the ones where you have to lift the bottle onto the machine! We've got a bottle holder which we bought from one of the shops that supply the water and it fits over the neck of the bottle and allows you to lift it easier. I just wish we had bought the bottom loader one in the first place! I don't think you will regret buying one!

Re: Water dispensers

I just put a small slit in the plastic seal before I lift it on top of the unit.
Mind you one day I had wet hands and dropped it ,well lucky it just bounced lol.

Although most 'as far as I know' on the top mounted type have a pointed spigot to pierce the seal but obviously putting a 'small' slit/hole will help the spigot break through more easily.

Re: Water dispensers

I have one of the top-loading water unit machines and there is nothing at all on the top that looks like a pointed spigot OldFogy ... just blue thick plastic covering to seal it ... which I pierce with a sharp knife in an X shape, then put it on top. Yes it is heavy but I can manage it quite easily in 2 go's ... once to rest on the top ... second time to tip it into the unit... x Angela in Side x

Sorry but the only one's I have seen have had a Pointed spigot in the top to pierce the seal. as in this video, although don't know why she took the seal of.

The only other time is on TV when watching people make a mess by spilling water all over the place because of removing the seal first, maybe the older models didn't have the spigot I don't know. Which was obviously done for the comical side of things.

Yes I agree .Have been putting these bottles on for years and never take the plastic seal off ,just as is said cut a small slit or x slit to make it easier to pierce .Also have never seen a indentation in the seal to make it easier to pierce when putting bit on .
