    Thanks for the response

    I'd rather not spend more than I have to for a brand name slapped on. some seem very pricey for what we need

    These are some of the ones I was looking at:

    http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...ang=en-US&Sp=C

    http://www.beveragefactory.com/refri...ispenser.shtml

    I guess I should say I want the cheapest option without it underperforming.

    That is expensive. Are you sure you cant find one on caigslist or kijiji or some other such service?

    Yeah, +1 for craigslist. That's where I got mine. Although if you do end up buying one full-price I've read good reviews of the Avanti unit. BTW... welcome to TF!

    yea, craigslist is awesome. I got an almost 300 dollar water cooler (with a mini fridge in it) for 30 bucks.

    Robthered, Heli, TheFury,

    I'd like to ask all of you guys a question: How fast do your coolers cool the water. Lets say from the moment you pured in warm liqued, how fast (minutes hours) does it get cold? And how hot does your compressor get?

    Thank you in advance!

    It takes like ten minutes for the water to cool and the compressor gets pretty warm

    interesting. I have a simple older cooler. With cold start (was off for days) it took something like an hour for the system to start niticably cooling water. But then it went quick. Almost as if it was purging itself or something for all that time.

    I am not very familiar with refrigiration systems, is it supposed to be this way ( long cold start)?

    So if it takes that long to cool, do you have the cooler on all the time and just have the pump hooked to a thermostat controller? Wouldn't seem efficient if it had to recool the liquid everytime it dipped below the threshold
