Two new water vending locations are up and running in the Gila Valley. Quality H2O and Ice are 24-hour self-serve filtered water vending machines.
Machines accept credit and debit cards as well as cash and coins. There are a few ways you can get the water and ice you need. Choose 1 gallon for .25 cents, 3 gallons for .75 cents or 5 gallons for $1.25. Ice is available in ten-pound bags for $2.00 or twenty-pound bags for $3.00.
If you would like to fill an ice chest you can choose bulk ice. Bulk ice vends twenty pounds for $3.00 and it comes directly from the bulk ice vend into your cooler with no bag.
The water is made from filtered, dechlorinated softened R/O water that is passed through a UV system and carbon particulate filter to supply the ice maker and water dispensers. The ice is frozen in layers using falling water. It is then chipped into small pieces that fit right into your cooler, cup, glass or straight into your mouth. The process is completely automated with no human contact to supply safe, clean and fresh products from when the water enters the system to the ice and water delivery dispensing points.
Quality H2O and Ice Thatcher location is located at 2222 W Highway 70 across from Taco Bell. In Pima, you can find Quality H2O and Ice at 367 E Highway 70. More vending services are planned for Safford, Clifton Morenci, and Willcox.
Quality H2O mission is to make clean water and ice available at a fair price from easy-to-access vending locations around the valley. For more information visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/QualityIce
