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.

What are water coolers? Water coolers = Water dispensers! However, in Singapore, we typically refer water coolers to water dispensers that are stainless steel type in exterior that usually has only chilled water function (so no hot water). You get the idea. It’s the type of water dispensers we use since our primary school days to secondary to tertiary, in our canteens, along corridors, at study areas, in factories and work sites.
