Primo Stainless Enclosed Bottle Bottom Loading Hot/Cold Water Dispenser
Our family drinks a lot of water. Emma and Ethan drink a little milk and mostly water. We have been encouraging them to fill their water bottles when they need a drink. Unfortunately they are short people and filling their cups and water bottles at the fridge usually ended up in a watery mess down the stainless front of my fridge.
Primo Water offered to send us a bottom loading water dispenser. I have always wanted a water dispenser but disliked the look of the bottle on top and I really didn’t think I could put the bottle in myself. After reading about the bottom loading dispenser I was excited to give it a try.
When it arrived I was impressed with the clean contemporary look of the chrome front. It matched our kitchen appliances nicely. I was impressed with and I loved how easy it was to slide the bottle into the bottom compartment… no lifting or flipping the water bottle. This particular dispenser allows us to have fresh, safe, hot or cold water instantly. If you are a household that already purchases bottled water, using this dispenser would help eliminate having to dispose of single-use plastic bottles.

Emma and Ethan have enjoyed being able to fill their own cups/water bottles without making a mess (and freaking mom out). I’ve noticed the water consumption in our house has increased because of the ease of dispensing and that makes me a happy mommy.
We love our dispenser and the convenience for the children to serve fresh filtered water for themselves. This will allow them to feel independent and stay hydrated at the same time. The size of the dispenser allows us to tuck the dispenser in the corner and it’s not in the way at all. Having hot and cold water at the touch of a button makes the water more palatable. I was a bit worried about the hot water button. We had a “talk” with Emma and Ethan about what buttons were okay to push, but there is also a child lock on the red button. If they were to try to push it the hot water wouldn’t work.
The cost comparison of a 5 gallon bottle to a package of single serving bottles will win you over. Inside the Primo Water dispenser box is a $5 off coupon to use on your initial bottle purchase. When you return to the store with your empty bottle you receive a ticket that will allow you to purchase a full bottle for only $6. To find a retailer of Primo water near you click here. My local retailers include Wal-Mart and Lowes.
This is a great savings and super convenient. If you don’t mind having to be a little careful with your full bottles you can refill your bottle even cheaper. Inside our local grocery stores, Wal-Mart and outside our gas station up the road are refill stations. We brought our 5 gallon bottle and refilled it for $1.75.
You can purchase a Primo Stainless Enclosed Bottle Bottom Loading Hot/Cold Water Dispenser for $199.99
