A water transport system replaces the inverted water bottle on a conventional bottled water cooler of the type with a refrigerated, open top water reservoir. The system automatically transfers water from an upright water bottle below the reservoir into the reservoir whenever water in in the reservoir falls below a predetermined level. A water pipe carries water from the bottle, through a sealed closure in the bottle neck and up into the reservoir whenever air pressure in the bottle is elevated. An air pump in a housing atop the reservoir generates air pr...
For a bottled water cooler having a cooled water reservoir with an open top adapted to support an inverted water container, a water transfer assembly for transferring water automatically from a non-inverted bottle of water having a constricted neck and positioned below said reservoir to the reservoir, the water transfer assembly comprising: (A) a housing arranged to be installed on said reservoir in place of said inverted container by simply laying said housing on said reservoir; (B) an air pressure system including an electrically powered air pump, said...
