What is the Variable Energy Surcharge?
Rising energy prices have significantly increased our operating costs. To continue providing you with high quality products and excellent service, an energy surcharge will be applied to future invoices. The surcharge is based on the Monthly U.S. Average On-Road Diesel Price as published by the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration on its website. The surcharge will appear as a separate line item on each invoice, starting with your next statement. We reserve the right to apply the surcharge in our sole discretion. Please note that we do not establish the Monthly U.S. Average On-Road Diesel Price. To learn more about recent energy price developments, please contact the Department of Energy at (202) 586-6966 or go to the "http://www.doe.gov/engine/content.do" target="_blank"> U.S. Department of Energy website. We will monitor the need to continue the surcharge and we will adjust accordingly.
Why do I have multiple addresses?
We show both your billing address and delivery address. In addition, if you have recently moved, you may continue to see your previous address until your new address has been updated in your account.
What is the difference between "delivery address" and "billing address"?
The delivery address is the address where your products are delivered. The billing address is where your billing invoices/bills are mailed.
What is a Refundable Water Bottle Deposit?
A water bottle deposit is a fee charged for every 3 or 5-gallon bottle delivered to you. A bottle deposit is refundable and will be credited to your account once each empty bottle is returned. If you return more bottles than were delivered to you, then a bottle deposit credit is applied to your account. For example, if you received four full bottles and returned five empty bottles during your billing period, you will receive a bottle deposit credit for one bottle. A bottle deposit charge may appear on your invoice if more bottles were delivered to you than were returned to your delivery person. For example, if you received five full bottles and returned only four empty bottles during your billing period, you will receive a refundable bottle deposit charge. Remember, your invoice will only reflect the activity that occurred during the billing period.
Can I pay using another method than credit card?
Certainly, we also accept payments via debit cards (cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo), check payments by phone, and check payments by mail.
What if I move?

If you are moving to a non-serviceable area, we will pick up the dispenser and/or bottles prior to the move.
What if your website says it is not available in my area?
We apologize for the inconvenience. If you typed in your zip code and no services showed, delivery services are unavailable in your area at the present time. We are expanding our delivery service, so please check back in the near future to see if services are available!
Can I change my plan as my needs change?
Call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-728-5508 to discuss alternative options that are available to you.
When is the billing cycle?
The billing cycle is every 28 days, beginning approximately 2 days after your first delivery.
Do you run a credit check?
A credit check is run if you choose to not set up your service using a credit or debit card. Should you choose to set up your account using a credit or debit card, a credit check will not be conducted.

If you would like a different quantity or additional products, please update your order online, leave a note for your delivery person, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 1-800-728-5508.

If your water consumption has changed, it is a good idea to leave a note on your empty bottles so your delivery person knows how many full bottles you would like delivered.

Our spring and artesian water sources originate well below the earth's surface and are inspected, tested and certified to bring you the best tasting, highest quality water.
Each of our spring water sources is certified by licensed geologists. Processes such as ultraviolet light disinfection and ozonation help us ensure that what you get in your bottle of spring water has the same natural mineral content found in the original spring source.
Learn more about our bottled water quality standards by viewing our water quality reports in English or Spanish on our quality standards page.
Learn the facts about your drinking water from the Drinking Water Research Foundation (DWRF).

Depending on your location, we deliver a wide variety of container sizes such as:
What are the cooler sizes available?
Dimensions vary but most of our water coolers are about one foot wide, one foot deep and approximately 3 to 4 feet tall.
What are the benefits of home delivery vs. store purchase?
Having our products delivered to your home or office is convenient and affordable. It saves the time and effort of carrying your products in from the car and is always available when and where you need it.
Do you use glass bottles?
Most of our bottles are returnable plastic bottles; they weigh less and are safer to use. In very limited markets, we offer our customers the option to select water in glass bottles.
What can you tell me about BPA?
Please refer to our question and answer page for more information about Bisphenol-A (BPA).
What is PET plastic?
PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic resin and a form of polyester. It is the type of plastic labeled with the #1 recycling code on or near the bottom of bottles and containers and is commonly used to package soft drinks, water, juice, peanut butter and salad dressing.
Do you recycle your big water bottles?
Yes! We are dedicated to using the highest quality, most cost effective and most environmentally responsible bottled water containers possible. Our 3 and 5 gallon bottles are cleaned, sanitized and refilled 40 to 50 times. Most of our big water bottles are recycled at the end of their life-cycle. The recycled plastic is used to make carpet, toys, tool handles, bird feeders and other items. For these reasons, you won't typically find large bottled water containers in landfills.
What are the recycling options for single-serve water bottles?
Our single-serve bottled water products are convenient, but we do urge you to recycle them if recycling programs are available. Recycling programs may not be available in your community.
How long is the shelf-life of a bottle of water?
Our bottles indicate a "best by" date. While bottled water is not a perishable food product, we recommend rotating your emergency supply and storing it under optimum conditions. Bottled water should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and high temperatures. Bottled water should be stored away from paints, solvents, garden chemicals, cleaning compounds and petroleum products, such as gasoline.
What type of bottled water containers should I store for emergency preparedness?
We recommend our 8-ounce, 16-ounce and 24-ounce single-serve bottles and 1- and 2.5-gallon containers. These smaller containers are typically easier to handle and store.
How often should I rotate the bottles of water that I have stored for emergencies?
We recommend rotating and replacing your supply every six months.
How can I be sure I have water for emergencies?
One way is to start home bottled water delivery service. The Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness recommends at least three gallons of bottled water per person in your emergency supply.

Why isn't water coming out of my dispenser?
The thermostat may be set too low and the water is frozen. To fix the situation follow these steps:
If the problem persists, please notify Customer Service immediately by clicking on the "Contact Customer Service" link at the bottom of the homepage. We will reply to your request within two business days to schedule a time when your delivery person can correct the problem.
What should I do if my dispenser should have cold and room temperature water, but both are cold?
The room temperature (cook) and cold dispenser has two distinct reservoirs that hold water at two different temperatures one at room temperature for cooking purposes, and the other chilled to about 45-50 degrees. Leading to each reservoir are two lines that hold about 12 ounces of water. In some cases, the cold line may accidentally chill the room temperature line, resulting in cold water coming from both spigots. Once the 12 ounces of water from both lines are released, room temperature water will dispense directly from the reservoir.
Why is water boiling inside the bottle on my dispenser?
While this happens infrequently and is not dangerous, it can be surprising to see. When an air pocket forms in the reservoir of a hot and cold dispenser, the heating element is exposed and creates enough heat to boil the water in the bottle above. If this happens, simply unplug the dispenser and dispense water from the spigots. This will release the air pocket. After the dispenser has been plugged in again, the water will be heated in the reservoir at the appropriate temperature.
How hot will the hot water from the dispenser be?
In a hot and cold dispenser, the temperature of the hot water is between 170 and 190 degrees. IT SHOULD BE DISPENSED WITH CAUTION AND KEPT OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. If you are interested in receiving safety spigots, please speak with your delivery person, email Customer Service or contact Customer Service at 1-800-728-5508. We will respond to you within two business days.
What should I do if my dispenser or water bottle are leaking?
Email Customer Service immediately or call Customer Service at 1-800-728-5508. We will schedule a time to come out and evaluate your situation.
