Installation of a School Bubbler
The availability of cool drinking water can make an immense difference to the learning of children in the classroom. Factors to take into consideration when choosing a school bubbler include the capacity of the bubbler to provide enough cool, filtered water for the school population. Our free onsite inspection takes the worry out of choosing the correct bubbler for the school population.
Problem or Issue
A local school called regarding the purchase of a new bubbler for their under-cover play areas.
The original drinking water dispensing systems had been installed more than 30 years ago and required expensive maintenance due to excessive calcification build up. The area has extremely hard water and the older style bubblers did not include the required water filters.
As these were standalone bubblers, they did not have sufficient output to service the school population. In addition to the standalone bubblers, there were 3 drinking water stations to service a school population of around 400 students. These were currently fed by plumbed water directly from the water mains.
As the school was in the Brisbane metropolitan area we were able to do a site inspection. Our water technicians were able to assess the area and we were able to offer the best solution for the location.
A remote multi point water cooler to be fed directly into the existing multi tap drinking trough was proposed. This allowed for the installation to dispense up to 90 litres of cooled, filtered water per hour. The inclusion of a vandal proof cage and our water filter maintenance plan resulted in the supply of a complete outdoor system offering a long term sustainable solution.
Our water technician attended the school to assess the situation, and then supplied a proposal the next day. This included the supply and installation of the remote multi point water cooler.
As we project manage the installation we were able to complete process from purchase, installation and commissioning.
On the day of installation our water technician was at the site, and ensured the installation ran smoothly. He then commissioned the multi point water cooler to confirm the correct temperature and water flow was maintained.
A courtesy call was placed a week after the installation to ensure the system was performing as required.
A sufficient supply of cool filtered drinking water resulted in the students drinking more water. The students no longer had to line up for the bubbler to drink luke-warm water. As the result the student’s hydration levels increased, an important factor for good brain function.
The installed water bubblers resulted in a sustainable solution expected to support the school into the future.
