Functions

The AQUAWELL WD-002-03 is a two-function water cooler dispenser that provides hot and cold water options.

Some users found the cold water produced by the machine moderately cold than tap water but most admit that it’s refreshingly cold for making cold beverages without adding ice. There was no issue with the heating function as the water consistently comes out steaming hot.

No long wait time to get hot. The heating process is fast. It can deliver 5 liters of hot water every hour. The cooling function is a tad slower since you can only get 2 liters of chilled water per hour. However, water is dispensed at a pretty fast rate from either spout.

You will hardly get interrupted while the dispenser is running. It does make a soft humming sound when the compressor is running but it’s only noticeable when you are near the unit.

Another nice thing is that water from both reservoirs of this dispenser has no unpleasant taste. The reservoirs are made of stainless steel which is durable and more importantly eliminates the plastic taste that some dispensers give off during initial use.

Operating

AQUAWELL has employed paddles for the dispensing mechanism on this unit. For the cold water, it’s a one-hand operation. You press the cup against the paddle, then hold it and the water flows out the spout.

The hot spot paddle has a child safety lock button that you have to push and hold while pressing the cup against the paddle for hot water to dispense. Once the hot water starts to flow you don’t have to hold onto the safety button but the cup must press against the cup.

It’s a simple operation for adults but challenging for young children to execute hence if you have kids around, this is safe for them to use plus the tall profile of the unit places the paddles high enough where a toddler can’t reach them.

You can alternatively deactivate the hot water button using a switch at the rear including the cooling function.

On the downside, the dispensing area is short, thereby you are limited to using small or medium-sized cups and glasses. However, the spouts are placed higher than the other dispensers, so you won’t have to bend so much to use them.

Loading the Water Bottle

Loading or replacing the water bottle is a bit tricky like all top-loading dispensers but the unit has a spill-proof leak guard that can help minimize water spillage if the bottle has no cap. It’s compatible with either standard 3 or 5-gallon bottles.

Now the impressive part of this AQUAWELL model is the large storage cabinet underneath. It’s bigger compared to the rest offering plenty of room to store several items. It’s more useful than the 8-soda cans capacity you get from other models.

A sizeable number of customers reported that the feet of their units weren’t leveled hence they had to balance them, otherwise they could easily tip over. We also found that the instructions were slightly confusing due to the poor English.

Verdict

AQUAWELL WD-002-03 is a simple but very practical water cooler dispenser. It’s a unit you can go for if you need good storage space and access to hot and cold water any time you want. The company has friendly customer support that responds quickly to customer inquiries.
