How to Clean a Greenway Water Dispenser

Save

Greenway is a manufacturer of water dispensers that are found in many homes and offices. These water dispensers provide clean bottled water stored in 3- to 5-gallon jugs. The dispensers easily distribute hot, cold or room-temperature water at the push of a button. Cleaning the Greenway water dispenser is an easy task, and should be done every four months to keep the unit clean and free of bacteria.

Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Large pot
  • Bleach
  • Nylon scrub brush
  • Rubber gloves (optional)
  • Unplug the water dispenser from the electrical outlet.

  • Remove the water jug, and discard any water that is in the jug.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then pour the hot water into the water reservoir along with 1 tsp. of bleach.

  • Place a pair of rubber gloves on your hands if you like, then use a nylon scrub brush to clean the inside of the reservoir.

  • After cleaning, pour the water out into the sink, then fill once more with boiling water and let sit for 20 minutes.

  • Run the boiling water through the water dispensers on the machine, allowing the water to collect in the pot you used to boil the water.

  • Discard the water, place a fresh water bottle back onto the unit and plug into the electrical outlet. The unit is now ready for use.
