WINTER WARMER

As winter approaches and hot drinks, soup, noodles etc. come back into focus Mirage Watercoolers want to remind you of their ongoing promotion for anyone thinking about buying an automatic Hot Water Boiler – so much more practical and quicker than continuous boiling of kettles. We will, on request, carry out a free survey to establish where you would like your boiler positioned and, more often than not, install the unit FOC (wall mounted boilers are hard […]

Understanding the ‘chill’ capacity of water coolers

Mirage Watercoolers provide two types of water coolers, bottle fed and mains fed.

Bottle fed coolers all have gravity based dispensing from a reservoir. Mains fed coolers can have the same as bottle fed but can also have a ‘direct chill’ mechanism which does not involve a reservoir.

The fundamental difference between these two dispensing methods is a matter of capacity. With a reservoir based cooler the literal capacity of chilled water  depends on the size of the reservoir. In other words as the reservoir empties of chilled […]

Another addition to Mirage Watercooler’s exciting range of coolers

Floor Standing & Counter Top Version Available

The Arctic Star is an attractive, practical mains fed water cooler. The means of dispensing is gravity fed by easy to operate push buttons. Some coolers use electronic means of dispensing involving solenoids and PCBs. With the Arctic Star you will not experience those annoying failures that often accompany so called high tech. products.

Mirage Watercoolers have added the Arctic Star to its range […]

Managing Waste Water

Mirage Watercoolers supply an extensive range of water coolers. Some are bottle fed, some are mains fed. Some have large drip trays, some have small drip trays.

Largely speaking the emptying of drip trays is a day-to-day housekeeping matter, however, in certain circumstances the capacity management of waste water can be significantly larger than just the drip tray on certain types of coolers.

Depending on the location of the cooler it may be possible to allow waste water to escape direct into the main drain or, […]

The Cost Graph – Where Do the Lines Cross?

If you consume a lot of bottled water with your Mirage Watercoolers’ bottle fed cooler and are concerned about the cost then consider a mains fed cooler.

Typically, if you’re consuming three or more 18.9 Ltr bottles per month then the chances are a mains fed cooler complete with its micron carbon filter is likely to become the cheaper option.

We are always happy to quote for […]

LIME SCALE – HOT WATER BOILERS

Mirage Watercoolers’ de-scaling service will help prolong the life of the boiler in your kitchen at work.

Calcium Carbonate is a natural occurrence in water. Whilst not implicitly harmful from a health perspective if allowed to build up over a period of time it can affect appearance and taste of dispensed water but, more importantly in a hot water boiler, scale can reduce both performance and life expectancy if it is not removed.

Some parts of the country are fortunate in having soft water but others have real problems with hard […]

HEAVY WATER? – Not with our 11 Litres

Whilst the standard size of water bottles for water coolers is nominally 19 Litres and conforms to manual handling regulations it still demands a fair amount of force to lift them let alone up and onto a water cooler.

Mirage Watercoolers understand that this does not suit every customer and/or their environment and, consequently, we are now offering 11 Litre bottles where there is a particular requirement for such.

To find out more about this useful option please call 0113 2877900 or fill […]
