We all know that drinking a lot of water is healthy, but we often forget to drink it regularly during the day. In this case, you should consider a water cooler. Nowadays, home and office water coolers are becoming more and more popular and the main question for customers is which model will best meet your requirements. In this case, "MyWatershop" - home or office water cooler delivery service from IDS Borjomi Russia - can help you.

If you're ready to buy a water cooler, check out their models in our website catalogue. If you want to know more about water coolers and how to choose the perfect model for your needs, find out below.


There are three main types of water coolers on the market: tap water coolers, top-loading coolers and bottom-loading coolers.

Below, we'll take a look at the pros and cons of each type.

Tap-connected water coolers

These water coolers connect directly to the water mains of your home. These coolers are sold in wall-mounted or upright versions.


  • They are cheaper in the long run as you don't have to pay for bottled water.
  • Many point-of-use coolers have a built-in filtration system.
  • Since the unit connects to your home's water supply, you don't have to worry about running out of water.


  • They usually have to be installed by a professional, which adds to the cost.
  • Although the device can filter water, it's still tap water, not mineral or spring water.
  • Because it is connected to the water supply, it must remain in place after installation.

Water coolers

Top-loading water coolers

Top-loading water coolers are the "classic" kind, which you've probably seen many times in various places. The bottle stands upside down on top of the unit.


  • This tends to be the most affordable type of water cooler.
  • You can use spring water or mineral water in this type of cooler, which is ideal if the water in your area is of poor quality.
  • Some freestanding models have 'extras' underneath (such as a small fridge).


  • Some people don't like the look of the appliance with a water bottle on top.
  • Installing the water bottle can be a difficult task for some people and requires a fair amount of strength.

Bottom-loading water coolers

Like the top-loaded coolers, a bottom-loaded cooler requires a bottle from which you can draw water. But in this case, it is located underneath the tap instead of on top of the unit. The bottle is often hidden behind a door at the bottom of the unit.

Water coolers


  • You can use spring water or mineral water.
  • Loading full bottles is quite easy as they do not need to be lifted very high.
  • This kind of cooler can easily be moved around the house if you decide to change its dislocation.


  • These models are often more expensive than their vertically loaded counterparts.
  • Desktop and wall-mounted water coolers

Most water coolers are stand-alone, vertical units. However, some "spot" varieties can be mounted on a wall or placed on a table. If you do not have a lot of space, you may want to consider a water cooler of this type.


Water Temperature

Water coolers can produce not only cold but also hot water.

Models producing hot water can heat water to a temperature sufficient to make a cup of tea or instant coffee.

Self-cleaning technology

Stale water is conducive to bacterial growth, so drinking water should not be left in the bottle for too long. This is especially a problem in one- or two-person households, where it takes a long time to use up an entire bottle of water.

Some manufacturers make coolers with self-cleaning technology to get rid of bacteria in the water and keep the cooler perfectly clean.

Filtration system

If your cooler is designed for bottles of spring or mineral water, you don't need to worry about water filtration. But if your cooler is connected to your home's water supply, you'll be using water straight from the tap.

Although tap water is safe to drink in most cities, it still contains chlorine, for example, which many people may want to get rid of.

In this case, it is best to use a water cooler with an integrated filter.

Water coolers

Easy installation

If you don't want to hire a professional to install your water cooler, the best option is probably a freestanding model rather than an all-in-one.

However, some water cooler manufacturers claim that their products are easy to install and only require basic tools.


Most top- and bottom-loading options are compatible with standard-sized 19 litre plastic bottles.
