    Are there any business here that supply these? Or perhaps can recommend a company?

    We got sent a trial one last summer and it was £4.xx per month and I seem to remember it was sent by someone from here but I can't remember who they were. I'd quite like to get one for the office now.

    Thank you please.

    I don't have one currently, but last place I worked bought them from River Rock or somewhere.

    The machine itself cost about £120 to buy, then it took the 18.9L bottles of water which cost £6 each delivered. They take the empties and give you full ones, and a lot of the companies provide such a service now.

    You will also need to budget to have the machines cleaned/sterilised about once every couple of months, costing around £12 a time iirc.

    Hello, thanks Carl I am here.

    Yes I supply them but not budget ones. I am happy to put you in touch with customers that pay £199 plus VAT for mine. Some came to me from the "cheap rental" companies, and others come to me having tried the £100 all in type deals.

    Stylish machines, big space for jugs, cups and bottles and a high throughput of proper hot or ice cold water is what you need.

    Hi Adam,

    I'm fine with the "cheap rental" companies - the water pipes won't go to our room anyway but we just want a big bottle of cold water that you shove the cups under :)

    Thanks, Adam!

    hey no probs. It's like cars, I have a very nice Vectra, got the same number of doors and wheels as the Mercedes that costs twice as much but some people prefer it.

    I just found the £100 we had, you would make £20 but have all the ongoing hassle.

    get a 'hard wired' water cooler that is plugged directly into your water supply, fitted with the proper filter it is much more cost effective than filling up with bottles all the time!

    Hi, thanks, unfortunately we're not able to have a water supply into our room so it has to be bottled :)
