Chiller Daddy Alternative or Substitute? January 27, 2023 10:17
The Chiller Daddy is no longer being manufactured and has many people asking if there's an alternative or substitute product. We explain in detail below, but the short answer is yes - we've been able to source an excellent alternative product that we're very excited be offering for sale: The Iceberg Chiller.
The Iceburg Chiller is made by an Edmonton, Alberta based company called Crystal Mountain which has been making and selling water purification and dispensing products since 1990. They make great products and you can see below how the Iceberg chiller is a great substitute for the Chiller Daddy*:

The Chiller Daddy was a great product for Aquatell. It was an ideal product for chilling purified water that had been output from a drinking water filter or reverse osmosis system. It worked well and we were able to offer it at an attractive price point. We suspect the Chiller Daddy will eventually be offered for sale again once they work out their suspected manufacturing difficulties, but this could be a while and may not come to pass at all - we're just not sure.
The Iceberg Chiller is an excellent choice for your post filtration or post reverse osmosis drinking water application. It's perfect for residential applications or for office water dispensing stations and is very likely the product we'll continue to sell even if the Chiller Daddy makes a return.
