The Benefits of Drinking Fountains
Drinking fountains, also known as a water fountain or a bubbler, is basically a fountain designed to provide safe drinking water. They are often installed in high traffic areas, both private and public, such as public parks, sporting facilities, gyms, schools, and beaches.
The benefits of drinking fountains include:
a) Healthy and convenient
Having drinking fountains available in a private or public space allows people to have ready access to drinking water, helping to keep them hydrated, safe and happy. This is especially important in places where people engage in physical activities such as sport or exercise, like schools, gyms, or sporting clubs. As they are generally accessible for free and at any time, drinking fountains provide a convenient and healthy alternative to other types of drinks.
b) Eco friendly and economic
Having access to a drinking fountain can also reduce reliance to bottled water, which in turn means less plastic waste in our environment. Without needing to purchase bottled water, users will also be able to save monetarily.
Drinking fountains can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments, with optional additions available to cater to the end user’s needs. From bubblers with anti-bacterial rubber mouth guards, to refrigeration units for chilled water, you can choose to customise your drinking fountain to suit your requirements. Drinking fountains can be installed as a freestanding pedestal, wall hung, or recessed into a wall, and they come in different shapes, sizes, and heights.
Types of Drinking Fountains
Wall Mounted Fountains
Our Dado Drinking Fountains come in several models – square or round, single or double fountains. The Dado drinking fountains come with an integral splashback, a front piezo activated timed flow bubbler, waste outlet, mounting bracket and concealed access. Refrigerated models are supplied with a separate remote chiller unit that is installed within the wall cavity.
Vandal Resistant Fountain
For an anti-vandal wall mounted fountain that is fully shrouded with a concealed service panel, go for the Vandal Resistant Fountain (DVR). This is highly resistant to vandalism, and all plumbing connections are housed within the carcass of the fountain.
The Compact Wall Hung Drinking Fountain (DWHC) is an economy model that is compact and practical. It is supplied complete with a heavy duty push button bubbler, and incorporates a raised landing area around the bubbler to reduce potential water run off.
