  • Water Coolers: To rent or to buy – A comprehensive guide

    At Aquacool, we are the premier provider of top-quality water coolers and mineral water sourced from the North of England. As the demand for water coolers continues to grow, many businesses and households face the decision of whether to rent or purchase their water cooler. In this guide, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each option, helping you make an informed decision that suits your business.


Choosing the Right Water Cooler for Your Business

At Aquacool, we understand that each customer has unique business needs and preferences when it comes to drinking water solutions. To cater to these varying requirements, we offer an extensive range of water coolers, including bottled water coolers and dispensers, mains fed water coolers and water fountains. So we have compiled the following list that explains the key features and benefits of each type.


Bottled Water Coolers and Dispensers

Bottled water coolers use pre-filled bottles of mineral water that are replaced periodically. They are ideal for smaller offices or homes that require a simple and convenient hydration solution.

Easy installation – Bottled water coolers require minimal setup, making them perfect for quick and hassle-free installation.

Portability- Due to their independence from plumbing, bottled water coolers can be easily moved to alternative locations giving you more flexibility over the placement of your drinking water solution.

High-quality water – At Aquacool, our bottled water coolers provide premium mineral water sourced from the North of England, ensuring a refreshing and healthy hydration experience.


Mains Fed Water Coolers

Mains fed water coolers connect directly to your building’s water supply, offering a constant flow of filtered, chilled drinking water. These coolers are suitable for larger offices with high water consumption.

Cost-effective – Mains fed water coolers eliminate the need for water bottle deliveries and storage, reducing overall costs.

Environmentally friendly – By eliminating plastic bottles, these coolers contribute to a reduced carbon footprint.

Unlimited supply – Since they are connected to your water supply, mains fed water coolers provide an uninterrupted flow of fresh, filtered water.


Water Fountains & Bottle Fillers

Water fountains offer a robust and efficient solution for high-traffic areas such as schools, gyms, or public spaces. 

High capacity – Water fountains are designed to accommodate heavy usage, making them perfect for locations with high demand.

Hygiene – Modern water fountains feature touch-free operation, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and promoting a sanitary environment.

Versatile installation – Available in both freestanding and wall-mounted options, water fountains can be easily installed in various spaces to suit your needs.


When choosing the right water cooler, consider factors such as water consumption, available space, and the preferred water source. At Aquacool, our team of experts is always ready to help you find the perfect solution for your business.


Comparing Water Cooler Rental vs Purchase


Renting a water cooler

Water cooler rental offers several benefits, making it an attractive choice for many businesses.

  • Lower upfront costs: Renting a water cooler requires little to no initial investment, making it a more accessible option for those with budget constraints, i.e. you can rent a bottled water cooler from as little as £3.49 Per Week
  • Easier budgeting: With a fixed monthly fee, you can easily predict and manage your expenses related to the water cooler.
  • Hassle-free maintenance: Aquacool’s rental agreement includes regular maintenance, ensuring the water cooler functions optimally without any added effort from you.
  • Flexibility: Rental agreements often allow for upgrades or downgrades, providing the option to adjust the water cooler based on your changing needs.


Buying a water cooler

On the other hand, purchasing a water cooler also has its advantages.

  • Ownership: When you purchase a water cooler, you own the equipment outright, giving you a sense of control and autonomy.
  • Long-term cost savings: Over time, the cost of ownership may be lower than renting, particularly if the unit is used for an extended period and maintained properly.
  • No monthly fees: While the initial investment is higher, once you purchase a water cooler, you won’t have any recurring monthly fees, which can be preferable for some budgets.
  • Customisation: When you own your water cooler, you can customise or upgrade components as needed, tailoring the unit to your specific requirements.
