Countertop Water Coolers: Purified Water at the Convenience of Your Countertop
Countertop water coolers are ideal for compact spaces. They fit comfortably on a table or countertop and don’t take up any floor space, which is precious in tight working and living environments. Great for homes and businesses, a countertop water cooler enables you to enjoy clean drinking water no matter the circumstances.
There are both bottled and bottle-less countertop water coolers available. Bottled countertop coolers use your standard 5 gallon or smaller water source, which needs to be replenished regularly. Bottle-less water coolers are sometimes described as point-of-use coolers. These units hook up to your water line and dispense water continually, without the need to replenish the source.
Some countertop water coolers simply dispense water while others provide either hot or cold water. The hot and cold water coolers are great for office environments when workers are prone to want hot coffee or tea.
With trustworthy brands such as Avanti, Clover, Primo, and Global Water, you’re sure to find the perfect countertop water cooler for your space.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
