A Comparison of the Most Popular Bi-Level Water Coolers with Bottle Filler

This article is designed for facility managers and buyers who are shopping for new, commercial grade, bi-level water coolers, or drinking fountains with a bottle filler. Deciding which style fountain is right for your facility can seem like a difficult task, especially if you don’t compare and purchase drinking fountains every day. Lucky for you, we sell the most popular drinking fountain brands all the time and are well-informed about all the features and differences between the various models.

Different manufacturers tend to present their unit information is different ways, making it hard to compare models from various companies. But Equiparts makes it easy to compare commercial grade, bi-level drinking fountains and water coolers with bottle fillers. We have gathered the details of each manufacturer’s units, and presented them in a consistent format. Underneath each unit are the manufacturer’s model number and the Equiparts model number, including information about variations of each model. We explain the unique features, and show high-quality images of each unit, while noting the various finish options. For even more information about units listed here, simply click on the unit's part number to be taken to that unit’s page on our website. There you will find more detailed unit information, as well as links to the manufacturer’s parts breakdown, spec sheet, and other useful literature.

 

Top Brands: Bi-Level Drinking Fountains and Water Coolers

As a leading commercial water fountain distributor, we carry drinking fountains, water coolers, bottle fillers, and repair parts by the following manufacturers: Elkay Manufacturing, Oasis International, Murdock, Halsey Taylor, Haws Corp, Central Brass, and more. This article shares the most popular combination bi-level water coolers, and drinking fountain units with bottle fillers from a variety of water cooler manufacturers.

 

The Difference Between a Drinking Fountain and a Water Cooler

When a unit is called a ‘Drinking Fountain,’ it does not include (and may not be able to include) a cooler or cooling mechanism within the unit. This means that the unit dispenses non-refrigerated water. But units labeled as ‘water coolers’ include a cooler within the unit, and dispense refrigerated water to the bubblers. Almost all water coolers can be sold as drinking fountains, i.e. without the cooling system. As always, you can call us with any questions you have, and we’ll be happy to help you with your selection.
