It seems it is common that many people use the water machine. However, have you ever thought about it can be dirty inside if you don't wash it often? It is better for you to wash it every three months. Few weeks ago we called the cleaning staff to clean the water machine and they seemed to be professional for it. As cleaning inside needs the machine and other equipment.

Water machine is the same as washing machine, right? Assuming it is, you're so right. Tide has a product that washes it from the inside. You pour in a packet and it cleans the inside and also gets rid of any odor. It's not too expensive, and I like the results after using it.

Okay, okay you meant something that gives you actual water! Sorry! I don't have a water machine so I wasn't following along. Sorry! But I would imagine it's very important to clean your water machine. Otherwise the water might get nasty.

Here many people prefer to use water machines so that they don't have to boil the water from the faucet.

In fact I prefer to boil the water from the faucet as it is much more reliable for me.

Same like you, i also prefer to drink boiled water rather than direct drinking it from the faucet. I am unsure how safe is the water in my area here.

Youless, same like you i always wash my water machine. We only have a normal type, so don't need a professional service. We washed it once a week, to make sure the water inside it don't produce odor. I always prefer to boil the water before consume them, for safety purposes.

We get our drinking water from many refilling station here in our area. But still, we have a portable water dispersing machine here at home cleaned weekly. If you are referring to the water tank, we don't have one. Our water from the faucet is directly from our town water provider. That is why we don't directly drink from the faucet

Here the water comes from the faucet needs to be boiled so that you can drink it. Or you can have the water machine like the attached photo and the water comes from the big bottle of water and you can drink it directly.
