What We Mean By Installation

Every cooler installation is slightly different, but a typical installation involves putting the water filtration system under the sink in the kitchen, then running the filtered water line to the back of the cooler.

It's actually fairly simple. It's as straightforward as installing an icemaker.

First, a waterway is attached to the closest water source - which is usually under a sink. However, it can be from an overhead pipe. Don't worry - the sink will operate just like it always has. It takes about 30 seconds to attach our flexi-pipe to your water source.

In most cases, the waterways for the bottle-lESS cooler are run invisibly inside the walls and over the drop ceiling and right to the cooler. If you've never seen this done, it's actually easier than you may think. The waterway can also be run on the outside of the walls covered with molding. Everything is hidden –just like all of your telephone and electrical lines. The waterway is then plugged in to the Crystalline Water cooler.

This water connection does not require the use of copper piping to the cooler location. We recommend the use of 1/4 food-grade polyethylene tubing from the water connection to the cooler. This flexible tubing is easily run above suspended ceilings and/or inside interior walls.

The coolers can be installed just about anywhere. The Crystalline Water bottle-lESS water cooler doesn't have to be next to - or near - a sink. You don't even have to have a sink in your office! Our coolers have been installed over 350 feet from a water source!
In some cases, we'll also install a "T" in the filtered water line and run it to the coffee machines and ice makers. In cases where the water coolers are not located in the kitchen, we'll run the water lines over the dropped ceilings and inside the wall. We'll then cut a small hole, the size of a dime, in the wall behind the cooler, put a color matched wall cover plate on it, and connect the water line to the back of the cooler. Our installations are similar to how your phone or computer lines have been run throughout your office, and take from 15-45 minutes to install.

What is a Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filter?

A: Reverse osmosis filters use "Semi-Permeable Membrane" technology. Water is pushed against a membrane with microscopic pores that only allow H2O molecules to pass through. All other contaminants are flushed away leaving only extremely pure water for drinking.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the most economical method of removing 90% to 99% of all contaminants. The pore structure of RO membranes is much tighter than UF membranes. RO membranes are capable of rejecting practically all particles, bacteria and organics >300 daltons molecular weight (including pyrogens). In fact, reverse osmosis technology is used by most leading water bottling plants
