I was thinking of incorporating a water cooler to take the 5 gallon jugs into a cabinet next to my refrigerator. Has anybody done this before?
I am going to be permanenly hooked up to power, so i would have no problem there, and I would have cold water for drinking/cooking as well as a hot water tap for instant hot water for soup, instant coffee, etc.
There is a much easier and less expensive way to get quality drinking water. Use a high-quality reverse osmosis filter unit (mine has 5 filter stages) and you will get water that is of superior quality to just about any bottled water.
The system cost me about $300 and the difference is amazing. Plus, I don't have to buy water any longer and haul it around. I would highly recommend any system made in the USA that is NSF certified and used US filters. The off shore imports just don't cut it....regardess of what they claim!
