The Giantex EP22276 is a simple and practical water cooler dispenser. It’s amongst the few bottled top load dispensers that strike a good balance between price and performance.

Functions

Giantex EP22276 is designed to provide both cold and hot water. It cools water quite well. Most users found the cold water refreshingly cold. The hot water as well is adequately hot for making tea, coffee, or oatmeal.

It cools the water faster than the other top-loading dispensers on our list. You can makeover 8 liters of refreshingly cold water within an hour. For the hot water, you will have to wait a little while. You can’t make more than 4 liters of hot water in an hour.

With regards to dispensing, the water flows out of the spouts not as fast as the tap but it’s better than many similar dispensers. The cooling process is a tad noisy when the compressor is running which is like all other coolers though, so that isn’t much of a problem.

Operating

The unit features push-down levers for dispensing hot and cold water through the spouts. They are a bit thin and don’t seem they can last long with constant use over time.

The hot water lever has a safety lock for preventing accidental burns to children but the downside is that it’s easy for children to operate. You just hold the brackets together for the hot water to come out.

Moreover, the unit is short which places the hot water lever within a child’s reach. However, you can turn the hot off for extra safety as well as the cooling function at the back of the unit.

The fill area has enough space to fit small to tall cups and containers but you will have to hold them while filling since the drip tray is not that wide for a large cup to sit on its own.

Loading the Water Bottle

The Giantex water dispenser can fit 2 to 5-gallon bottles. Loading the bottle will require some lifting but the unit has a non-slip cap that helps prevent water from spilling everywhere. Without the caps, water will splash all over when inverting the bottle onto the dispenser.

There’s a compartment under the drip tray for storage and unfortunately, it can only accommodate small items or 8 cans of soda. It’s too small for medium to large items.

As we mentioned earlier, the dispenser itself is smaller in size which is a good thing since it doesn’t take up much space. The problem is that the spouts are placed a little short from the ground (just over 18-inches). If you are tall or even average height, you will have to bend a bit more to use it, but in general, it’s not such a big deal.

You can detach the water barrel seat and it’s easy to disassemble in case you want to clean it. The body of the unit and the entire construction apart from the taps is sturdy and durable. The unit is also lightweight and there’s a drain located on the back to let you drain the tanks.

Verdict

Although it’s marked by several unfortunate drawbacks, the Giantex EP22276 dispenser works well, it’s efficient and offers value for the money. The manufacturer provides a 3 months warranty which is shorter in comparison to the other units on our list but their customer service responds fast as attested by most users.
