Pros and cons of renting / leasing water dispenser at HappyPenguin (vs outright purchase)

Pros of rental (yes, the good):

    Rest assure that even though you are renting, water dispenser is brand new. (min 2 years contract)

So, you are thinking of getting or have bought a floor standing water dispenser and is not too excited when it comes to having to bend a little to get water at the spigots. It is a common issue with the water dispensers. I do not understand why dispensers are made short like, universally for floor standings. Even the tallest does not seem tall enough. These days, our backs are stiff and we are tall, right?

Water filters can remove contaminants present in water, such as sediments, chlorine & by-products, odor, atrazine, lindane, lead, rusts, toxins, pesticides, bacteria & virus from your drinking water. There are many filtration technologies & a few dispensing modes. We are going to discuss about one mode of dispensing filtered water – under sink.

Under-sink Water Filter (without the drilling)
Want to enjoy filtered water but have a clean, clear kitchen counter? Don’t want to drill a hole for the auxiliary faucet for the under-counter water filter?

Or perhaps you can’t drill hole as you are staying in a rental unit or do not like to have another faucet on your counter.

Your body contains a lot of water; approximately two-thirds of your body weight is accounted for by water. Most importantly, you need to continually resupply your body with water or you will simply die within a very short period of time.
