Why Choose Murdock Manufacturing Fountains
Easy to Maintain
Murdock water coolers are designed to make life easier for the maintenance people who service them. The simple configuration of their drinking fountains, water coolers, and bottle fillers allows for easy access to the parts that need attention most often. In addition, there are less moving parts to potentially repair, making maintenance calls less frequent. For example, instead of three push buttons on a water cooler, Murdock fountains have only one.
Service tasks like turning off the water, cleaning the strainer, changing the filter, adjusting water stream height, and replacing the cartridge can be completed easily and without disassembling the unit. See how easy it is to complete these tasks on a popular Murdock Water Cooler model in the video below.
Many Murdock units that were installed over a century ago are still fully functional today. They are a testament to the high-quality craftsmanship and durability of Murdock units.
