How does Distillata’s bottle deposits work?
Our 5-gallon water bottles, also referred to as “carboys”, are subject to a $7.00 deposit. Each bottle purchased on your initial delivery will have an associated fee.
For example, 1 bottles = a $7.00 deposit, 2 bottled = $14.00 deposit, and so on.
Future deliveries will be handled as an even exchange.
For example, 1 full bottle is delivered and 1 empty bottle is picked up = no deposit.

What should I do when my cooler is leaking?
A water cooler leak is usually caused by the bottle itself. If there is a pinhole or a crack somewhere in the bottle it will overfill the reservoir of your cooler and leak out the back. To remedy this, simply take the bottle off the dispenser, drain the cooler out through the spigots and put a new bottle on. Mark the bottle that caused the problem and your driver will exchange it for you at no charge. If you try this and the cooler continues to leak please contact our customer service department.
When is my payment due?
Payment is due 10 days after you receive your statement in the mail.
