The Primo stainless steel water cooler is a wonderful option for those who are searching for a 3-function top loading water cooler dispenser. It’s built to last just like many other units from Primo and its performance is remarkable to some extent.

Functions

This Primo water cooler dispenser features three spouts that deliver three different water temperatures. It dispenses, hot, cooled, and normal room-temp water.

The hot water is extremely hot but some users have complained that the cold water isn’t that cold – it’s only slightly colder than the normal tap water. You might want to keep that in mind but according to a large majority, it was cold enough to meet their needs.

The room temp water comes out at a moderate temperature although several users also noted that it’s a bit warmer than tap water.

The heating and cooling processes are not sluggish. It takes less than 5 minutes to heat or cool water before it’s ready for dispensing and the flow on all three spouts is good. You won’t have to wait for a while to get the water you want.

You will also appreciate the fact that this machine is quieter than many other models out there despite the level of functionality it has. Occasional hum like a refrigerator is the only sound it makes during the cooling process. It’s a unit that you can use in an office environment.

A few customers reported that the dispensed water tends to have a plastic taste during the first few days of using the machine. The taste does disappear eventually with continued use but the majority of buyers seemed not to have any issues with the taste of the water.

Operating

It’s easy to operate this Primo unit as it features push-down buttons that you just press to dispense water. They are not hard to press and are placed on top of the unit for quick reach which also makes them somewhat difficult for toddlers to access and play with.

The hot water button, it’s protected by a child safety lock that requires sliding and holding it in place while pushing down the button to dispense hot water. A toddler might not be able to reach it or manage to operate it which is essential in preventing accidental burns.

This unit too allows you to switch off hot and cold water functions from the back of the unit to save on energy or for further protection against burns.

The fill area is okay although not bigger than the Primo 601130 model. It will accept small to medium cups and glasses. For tall sports bottles, you may have to tilt them to fill them up.

Loading the Water Bottle

You will find this unit not much challenging with regards to setup and loading or reloading of the water bottle. It’s around 36-inches tall hence you have a short height to lift the water bottle over.

Primo has included a spill-proof bottle holder that does help to prevent leaks or spills when loading and unloading the water bottles. Any standard 3 to 5-gallon water bottle will fit onto the unit.

This one too doesn’t come with a bottom storage cabinet and the spouts sit somewhat low to the ground meaning you will need to bend a little to get the water. The whole unit is sturdy and it uses stainless steel water tanks which makes them durable.

Verdict

All in all, a large percentage of users were satisfied with the overall quality and functionality of this Primo stainless steel water cooler. On our part, we would say it’s a great purchase if you want a three-function top load water cooler dispenser.

A one-year warranty is provided from the date of purchase which you need to activate on the Primo website. In case you get a defective unit, you won’t have to worry much because as we stated earlier, Primo has excellent customer service who always responds to concerns quickly.
