Water dispensers are very convenient, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter; however, they contain germs and bacteria that can grow inside the dispenser and get into the water causing health problems. Learning how to clean water dispensers is an important step when using them in a home or office, adds the recent Absolute Rights newsletter.
Easy to follow steps when learning how to clean water dispensers, are included in the recent Absolute Rights newsletter:
1) Unplug from the outlet.
2) Wash the outside
3) Take the bottle off and drain the reservoir
4) Take the water guard and the baffle off, then wash.
5) If the dispenser provides hot water, plug the tank with a cork to keep the sanitizer solution out of the hot water tank.
6) Use one teaspoon of unscented bleach and one gallon of clean water to make the sanitizing solution.
7) Use rubber gloves, and scrub brush with sanitizing solution to clean the interior of the water reservoir.
8) Clean the spill-free top and baffle with sanitizing solution. Do not get the little air filter wet. Rinse the baffle and spill free top.
9) Fill the water reservoir full of bottled water then drain the water out using the cold water faucet, then do it again at least a couple of times to make sure all the bleach is gone.
10) Use a new pair of rubber gloves that do not have bleach on them, and take the cork out of the hot water tank. Replace the spill-free top and baffle by pressing them firmly into place.
11) Next place a clean bottle of water on the dispenser then let water drain through each faucet until all the chlorine taste is gone.
12) Plug it back in.
Clean the water dispenser every 4 to 6 weeks depending upon how much it is used, advises the recent Absolute Rights newsletter. The recent Absolute Rights newsletter adds to use clean hands when picking up the water bottle and placing it into the water dispenser because germs can pass from hands to the water bottle, and then into the drinking water.
