A: This happened to me too. I recently purchased this unit and immediately noticed the taste after setting it up. The instructions said to run a few quarts of water through it and the taste should disappear. I wound up running two (expensive) 5 gallon containers of water though it (over the course of several days) but the bad taste was still there. I wound up returning it to my target store. I want to buy a new one but now I'm gun shy. How can this be fixed?

A: Hi Dale, Thank you for reaching out. Great question! The self-sanitizing dispensers pump ozone (O3) into the cold reservoir only so the water in the bottle wouldn’t be affected. The ozone kills microbes (disinfection) in the cold water reservoir during the sanitization cycle. Ozone breaks down very quickly in water, so it dissipates by the end of the cycle. The water is safe to drink during the cycle, but we don’t recommend it because the water would likely have an odd taste and smell. The total cycle programming allows enough time for the ozone to dissipate from the cold water so, once the cycle is over, the water would be back to its typical taste. Best Regards, José R.

A: Hi Ken, Thank you for reaching out to us. This Primo water dispenser includes indicator lights on the front that will indicate if the Primo water dispenser is in Self Sanitization mode, if it is dispensing hot or cold water, and if the water bottle is in need of replacement.

A: Hello, Thank you for reaching out to us. You can use any 5 or 3 gallon bottle with our dispensers with the exception of the brand American Maid. The way the neck of the bottles are manufactured makes them incompatible with our dispensers. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank You - Cassandra P.
