Automatic valve assembly for a water cooler reservoir

An automatic valve assembly for a water cooler having a reservoir of the type that has its upper end generally sealed to the atmosphere by a water bottle adapter that receives and supports an inverted water bottle. The valve assembly comprises a ventilation passageway that permits air to enter the reservoir, and an actuator arm hingedly mounted within the interior of the water cooler. The actuator arm is operable to move between an open and a closed position in response to changing water levels within the reservoir. When in its open position the actuator arm allows the unrestricted passage of air into the reservoir through the ventilation passageway. When in its closed position the actuator arm restricts the flow of air and fluids through the ventilation passageway.

Water cooler replenishing system

A water cooler replenishing system which is designed to collect drinking water from a conventional supply bottle and dispense the water into a container, on top of a freestanding water cooler, and be repeatedly refilled. The water cooler replenishing system includes a pump having an inlet port and an outlet port. A water container is also included which is shaped and configured to rest on a freestanding water cooler and receive water for filling the container. A supply tube is provided for collecting water from a conventional supply bottle and the supply tube is connected, by fluid conduit to the inlet port. A filler tube is provided for dispensing water into the water container and the filler tube is connected, by fluid conduit to the outlet port. The pump may be selectively energized to collect water from the supply bottle and dispense the water to fill the container.

Water cooler drip tray drainage apparatus

A water cooler with a drip tray in which liquid in the drip tray drains through a drain hole connected to a pump. When liquid is detected, the pump activates to pump the liquid to a remote drain. An optional filter between the drip tray and the pump traps overly-large particles. Optionally, the drip tray is covered by a removable strainer. A vent in the hose between the drip tray and pump includes a pressure relief vent. Optionally, an access point between the drip tray and vent provide drainage for another source of liquid. The pump is activated by a sensor that detects the presence of liquid in the inlet hose and remains on for a period after liquid is no longer detected so that the liquid is pumped the full distance to the drain.

Supply system for a bottled water cooler and method of use

A supply system for providing water from a bottled water cooler includes a pump which pumps water from an upright bottle of water. A pressure sensor turns the pump off when the bottle of water is empty. A prime pump control starts the pump to initiate the flow of water from a new bottle of water.
