Public water dispensers: A good idea?

Public water dispensers: A good idea?

Public water dispensers: A good idea?

Drinking water is essential for humans. I'm sure we're all in agreement on this statement. For this reason, the resource should also be accessible to everyone anywhere and anytime. A public water dispenser, for example on a market square or a highly frequented area in a city, makes this possible. At the same time, this is a sustainable and resource-saving alternative to plastic water bottles, because a public water dispenser can save many tons of plastic waste and CO2 every year — simply by dispensing fresh water from the drinking water pipe.

A small, computational illustration:

The production of 1 liter of bottled water produces approx. 200 g CO2.

The production of 1 liter of tap water produces approx. 0.35 g CO2.

This calculation alone shows that tap water almost 600 times less CO2 causes. Actually, from this point on, you don't even have to think about it anymore - tap water makes sense!

Choosing tap water over bottled water not only reduces pollution of the environment and the world's oceans due to plastic waste, but also makes people aware of how important water as a resource is and how best to use it. At Aquadona, we are aware of this and are therefore proud to be able to offer the most diverse water dispensers for publicly accessible spaces.

Public water dispensers — important features for a water dispenser in publicly accessible spaces

A public water dispenser should be made of sturdy materials. Aquadona only offers robust drinking water dispensers with vandal-resistant materials and a water connection. These versions are also weatherproof and frost-resistant. In addition, Aquadona water dispensers are made from corrosion-resistant materials such as stainless steel, cast iron or stone. Many of the water dispensers offered have powder-coated surfaces with scratch-resistant properties. If a public water dispenser is unattended, the drinking faucet in particular should be made from vandal-resistant materials. Such sturdy drinking water dispensers have a long lifespan of several decades, depending on how they are maintained. In addition, our public water dispensers are frost-resistant: ice and frost cannot harm them if the supply line is switched off and the pipes are emptied before the first freezing temperatures. If the drinking water well should also be operated in winter, we offer special substructures that allow the drinking fountain to be operated even in winter without having to shut off the water pipe. At Aquadona, you will also find suitable systems for this purpose. Our public water dispensers are available in a wide variety of variants, which include the following features:

  • robust and stable materials
  • vandal-proof
  • corrosion-resistant
  • frost resistant
  • weather-resistant
  • easy operation
  • available in various desired colors
  • hygienic thanks to automatic hygienic flushing

From Aquadona, you can order a water dispenser that can be set up in public spaces without much effort. All that is required for start-up is a water connection and a sewage connection, although the latter is not always necessary. Whether in a green area or on the market square — a public water dispenser can be imagined in many different places. A few of the possible installation locations and drinking fountain variants can be found in our testimonials. Convince yourself of our water dispensers through our selected selection in online catalog.

Public water dispenser — versatile

There are water dispensers suitable for public areas for a wide range of applications. Green areas or squares in pedestrian zones in particular are often suitable for wired water dispensers that are publicly accessible. Public buildings such as the city administration are also increasingly being equipped with a water dispenser or a bottled water system. A public water dispenser is also particularly suitable for educational institutions such as schools or universities, as it allows pupils and students to tap fresh drinking water at any time.
On request, you can order many of our drinking water dispensers in various colors. This is particularly advantageous for daycare centers or cities if the operator prefers a specific color. In the product descriptions of the individual models, you will find a selection of colors and some outdoor drinking fountains can also be delivered in an individual color or special paint. Before you buy a water dispenser, consider the product features of each version.

Depending on your requirements, the Aquadona team can customize the appropriate drinking water dispenser for your needs. On request, our team will be happy to provide you with expert advice. Talk to us.

Drinking water dispensers for publicly accessible applications

A public water dispenser should be as easy and hygienic to operate as possible. An arc-shaped stream of water enables cup-free drinking. Many versions are operated with a push button. With a free-standing or wall-mounted design, a bottle filler is often possible. This is a popular option, particularly in cities, for bottling water to take away. Unhindered and barrier-free access should also be possible. A public water dispenser should therefore have the following features, among others:

  • easy operation
  • cup-free edition
  • hygienic use
  • Optional bottle filler
  • Hygienic rinse for clean drinking water
  • barrier-free access for wheelchair users and children

At Aquadona, you will find suitable water dispensers for public spaces. These models are easy to operate and provide quick and hygienic water dispensing. All models are water dispensers with a fixed water connection — therefore all drinking water dispensers are connected to the mains. A public water dispenser therefore requires a water connection and sewage connection.

Take a look at our range of products and follow the information in the product descriptions.

If you want to enjoy your water dispenser for high-traffic public spaces for a long time, simply order it from Aquadona. We offer models with the appropriate features.
