Absolutely love this system! I was on a hunt for a sanitary water dispensing unit without too much plastic or metal contact with my prestine naturally alkaline water and this one is perfect! I have water delivered in a 5 gallon glass jug, and that thing weighs about 60-70lbs with water. This little metal stand is so strong and sturdy! The plastic spout fits my 5 gallon mountain valley spring water glass jug. You can control how fast you want the water to flow out, by pushing the tab down more. Would recommend!
To be honest, I wasnt sure what to expect. You can read reviews all day but some times things can be different case to case basis. It seemed pretty simple from the photos and video I watched. I just got my order yesterday and it started to leak on me. I did have to reattach the cap 2 times because i didnt want to break anything nor did I want it too tight to where I couldnt get it off. All in all, No more leaks and the thing works perfectly. No problems with counter space because you can always move it when it need it. The metal amazingly supports the 5 gallon jug with no problems. Thus the 5 stars..
I really like this, have been using on my countertop for a couple of months without a problem. One little bit of advice is be careful when loading the bottle, I pinched the skin on my forearm pretty good once and once only....I think people thought I was using drugs lol.
Update- it's months later and this thing is still working and looking good I know there is supposed to be a special process for changing the lid so keep your directions. I lost mine so I just wrestle it off but if you are not strong you need to keep the directions.
This thing is great! We have to buy bottled water as our water tastes awful. I was going though gallons si fast not even funny and they take up fridge space. Water cooler wasn't in our budget either. We saw this and said lets try it. So glad we did. We bought a 5gal. and the nozzle fit perfectly. My husband had to tighten it as when I did it leaked but just fiddle with it no more leak. It didnt fit on my counter because the top of the bottle hit my upper cabinet so we put it on the buffet and no issues. Would fit just fine if I was using a smaller bottle. Would Not fit in the fridge so you water will be room temp but that's what ice is for.
Our home has a well, and we drink bottled water instead of tap water, so I bought one of these in 2018 for the upstairs so we could all have easy access to good water at night. The tap is a little challenging to install, but once you get the hang of it, it's simple. I've used it on many bottles over the last 2 years and it's still perfect. No leaks (unless you install it wrong) and easy lever action even for groggy people who woke up in the night! Great product.
