Just too let you know....anyone having Sparklets water delivered to your home ..if you choose to have equipment picked up an your service cancelled its a $36.00 charge for refurbishing for the next customer lol..ive had this machine for 4yrs now i should own it...just a warning...THEY WANT TO HOLD YOU HOSTAGE IF YOU QUIT THEIR SERVICE...YOU NEED TO PAY FOR MACHINE FOR THE NEXT PERSON TO USE IT ..REFURBISHING CHARGES..a joke...for 4 yrs i should have owned this machine ..i could see cancelling within a year or so...and the main reason i am cancelling is because of the driver he has been soo ignorant in delivering when he should an or delivering more than he is supposed too for his incentative..he is upset because i call the company directly if i have a complaint instead of him..he has hung up on me , i just dont need to deal with a person like this...customer service is great over the phone. i am very please with the service but driver is very rude.....

so becareful when you sign up NOTE that their is a charge when you chose to end the service no matter how many years you have been with them.....i will never ever buy sparklets water again not in a store or anywhere....btw my machine is in tip top shape i don not trust this company anymore..i took pictures of the machine for my own protection...

not useful

AUTHOR: dolly - (United States of America)

This is entirely non productive from Mr. Anonymous.  I pulled up this website because I am having problems with Sparkletts myself and wanted to see if someone else is having the same problems.  Now I get to read rebuttals from someone that obviously works for this dang rip off water company or has some connection.

Every contract with this company is the exact same and page 2 lists all fees. Most of the time the company will waive a fee if your a d**k and honestly, 35 is not worth sending you to collections as it costs more than that to collect. You are ranting and raving about 35 bucks when this company has 90+ mill sitting in the bank. You didn't win anything son.

RE: Sparklettes

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

In response to this post, you may have rented a cooler from DS Waters for four years but that doesn't mean you own were RENTING. There are many advantages to renting verses buying a cooler. The main being that at any time for no reason you can get a NEW cooler, no questions asked. Sure, after 1+ years of renting, you could have bought 1 cooler with a 1 year warranty. Therefore, you should take advantage of this policy a just get a new cooler because you can whenever you want without any reason. Secondly, the $35 fee is to clean and replace every part in your used cooler to resell to a customer who is willing to buy a pre-used unit. Just because you didn't read your contract doesn't mean you were taken advantage of.
