If the cooler is tilted during the move, the rule of thumb is for the amount of time the cooler is tilted, it should sit upright and not be used for the same amount of time. For example: If the cooler is tilted for an hour, it should remain upright for an hour or more before use.

  1. Make sure your cooler has been upright for the designated time recommended above.
  2. Put the bottle back on the water cooler.
  3. Ensure water comes out of both spigots.
  4. Plug in the unit.
  5. If your water cooler has a hot switch, flip it on.
  6. Let the unit heat for 20 minutes before use.
  7. Enjoy refreshing water!
