Sure, it’s possible to drink directly from the tap in Singapore but most of us still boil our water to purify it further and make it taste better. It’s also convenient to have hot water on hand so that we can make a cup of coffee or tea more easily.
This is why looking for the best water dispenser in Singapore is one of the most important things to do, especially if you’re just moving into a new house.
If you’re looking for a water dispenser that can bring more convenience to your house, read on to see our tips and recommendations.
How to pick the best water dispenser for your home in Singapore?
Here are some areas of concern when you’re picking out your water dispenser.
Ease of maintenance
This comes right at the top of our list because maintenance is something that a lot of people overlook when purchasing any item for the house.
Nobody wants to spend too much time maintaining our appliances so the best water dispenser is really one that the lowest-maintenance.
For water dispensers, keeping your tanks clean and free from limescale buildup is super important. To avoid spending all your time cleaning, look out for a water dispenser that offers self-cleaning functions.
Advanced filtration technology
The primary responsibility of your water dispenser is to give you clean water, which is why its ability to do so using technology is another important area to look at.
While it may be a little daunting, read up on how each water dispenser helps with the filtration process so you can do a comparison between them.
Design for space and appearance
Given how most houses come with limited space, especially in the kitchen, it’s always a good idea to go for something slimmer so it can fit better.
The last thing you want is a water dispenser that’s so huge, you’re left with little countertop space to do your food preparation.
Besides this, while it may sound frivolous, you’ll certainly want to look for one that comes with a gorgeous design so it looks good in your kitchen. After all, you’ve already put in so much effort making sure every detail in your house looks good – why not do the same for your water dispenser!
Other convenient features
Finally, consider whether the water dispenser has other functions that add to your convenience, for instance ability to dispense water of different temperatures or designs that help make it easier for water dispensing.

What you’ll get is clean water that is fresh and tasty. Its hygiene level is further enhanced with UV and electrolysis sterilisation of the dispenser to prevent secondary contamination.
Offering eight preset temperatures and five preset volumes, the Super Cooling All-In-One provides absolute ease and convenience of use that aligns with your lifestyle.
