In the third spot is another Avalon bottleless water cooler dispenser, the Avalon A7. This is a much standard model compared to the other two above, but it’s equipped with the same great features that make it a worthy option for those who want a budget-friendly bottleless water cooler dispenser.

Functions

The A7 is a two-function unit with only cold and hot water options. In terms of performance, it does cool and heats water to adequate temperatures.

A majority of users found the cold water to be refreshingly cold and the hot water comes out consistently hot at almost boiling temperature.

Cooling and heating capacities are no different from the A5 and A13 models either. It takes an hour to cool up to 2.5 liters of water and it can heat at most 4 liters of water at the same time.

The flow rate is better than the Avalon A13. You can dispense 2 liters of cold water and 1.8 liters of hot water in a minute. That’s about the same rate as the A5 but you will have to wait a few minutes before more hot water is available again after each dispensing.

Based on users’ reports, the noise level is low – nearly silent. It doesn’t cause any disturbance whether it’s cooling or heating the water.

Filtration

The filtration process has also not been changed. It’s the dual-filtration system we saw in the A5 and A13 featuring a sediment filter and an activated carbon block filter in that order.

Their quality and effectiveness at eliminating sediments, chlorine, bacteria, lead, and other contaminants are similar to the rest. There was no lapse pointed out. The water comes out cleaner and has a better taste than regular tap water. No plastic tastes like in the A5 or A13.

You will still have to replace them every 6 months though and this unit has also an indicator light, so you will be able to replace them on time to ensure a continuous flow of clean water.

Operating

The dispensing mechanism of the A7 involves basic paddles instead of buttons that its counterparts use. They are not the most convenient and durable type but they are easy to use.

You have to press your cup against the paddle to let out the water. The hot paddle has a safety button that you must push to unlock the hot water spout.

It can provide some level of protection against accidental burns if you have children but the paddles are just next to the spout, not on top. This puts them within reach for a standing child hence might not be as safe as having them on top.

The unit has separate switches on the back to turn on/off the heating and cooling of the water. Therefore, you can switch hot water off for additional protection if your child can access the hot water paddle.

Taller cups and bottles do not fit in the fill area because it offers only 7.5 inches of space below the spouts. It’s good for just small and medium-sized containers. The spouts are also a little low requiring one to bend down to use them.

There’s an LED nightlight between the spouts and according to several users the light is not too bright but it does illuminate the spouts and the fill area meaning you won’t have a hard time dispensing water at night.

Installation

Basic DIY skill is necessary to install this dispenser. If you are handy and can follow the very clear instructions, you can do it on your own in under an hour, otherwise, you will have to get a professional to do it, especially if some plumbing will be required.

In case of a leakage, the A7 has a built-in leak detector that will alert you and until it’s fixed you will not be able to dispense water from both spouts.

This dispenser too features the self-cleaning Ozone functionality, thereby maintenance will largely involve filter replacements and occasional cleaning of the exterior parts. The build quality is decent enough for the unit to hold up well for more than a year or two.

Verdict

Overall, Avalon A7 is worth considering for those who want a two-function water bottleless water cooler dispenser that can as well filter out contaminants. It’s durable and will give you clean cold and hot water at the right temperatures.
