The Beginning

The water cooler as we know it was first invented in the early 1906 and is credited to two men – Halsey Willard Taylor and Luther Haws. Haws patented the first drinking faucet in 1911. It is believed that the main reason behind the invention was to not only chill but to provide purified water. Contaminated drinking water caused typhoid fever in Haws’ father who died as a result. Therefore Haws decided to invent something which would provide safer drinking water.

Water coolers have evolved along with the times and today are compact, light, energy efficient and come in a variety of models, colour and styles to suit most places. Today, many water coolers or dispensers include a heating element to provide hot water along with chilled water. These dispensers must also adhere to strict regulations, meeting health, sanitation and environmental standards.

The First Water Dispenser

Early iterations of drinking fountains supplied water at room temperature, which made it a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The solution was a water cooler, a dispenser that would chill water, thereby eliminating micro-organisms that could not result in disease.

Halsey Willard Taylor’s and Luther Haws’ water coolers made use of ice sourced from rivers to chill water, which also presented a problem as this open source could also have surface water. Haws would go on to patent the water faucet in 1911, and by 1938 water coolers began to make use of electricity and new laws made it possible for water to be treated more effectively, thereby reducing typhoid infections drastically.
