    What is a water dispenser?

    A water dispenser machine offers any workplace an unlimited supply of filtered, safe drinking water by plumbing into your existing supply. Users can place a cup, bottle or jug beneath the faucet, then push a lever or button to fill their glass. They include a refrigerator mechanism that cools your drinking water supply to a cold or ice-cold temperature before delivery. The features extend beyond cooling to heating, filtration, even carbonation of the water supply. Depending on the model suited to your workplace, water temperatures can range from:

    • Cold (default setting 41°F);
    • Ambient (room temperature);
    • Hot (default setting 189° F; other options 167°F or 199.4°F);
    • Extra hot (default setting 203°F; other options 176°F or 189°F)

    Avoid the risks associated with drinking from the tap

    On average, there are 500 boil water alerts issued a year in Canada as localised contamination introduces potential pathogens into tap water. An even more serious event occurred in 2017 when environmental groups found unsafe levels of herbicide atrazine — known to disrupt hormone function — which had seeped into Toronto and Montreal’s drinking water supply.

    How does a water dispenser purify water?

    Each cooler runs the water supply through a three-step filtration process that includes carbon filtration, UV purification and BioCote® surface protection.

    water technologies

    Carbon Filtration

    Step one involves high-performance carbon filtration that helps improve the quality of your drinking water using highly-porous pieces of carbon that remove the impurities that impact the taste, colour, and smell of your tap water supply. These impurities can include chlorine, petrochemicals, and other toxins, but the carbon filter will catch them all.

    UV Purification

    Step two uses microbiological purification with ultraviolet light to eliminate up to 99.9999% bacteria from your drinking water. Firewall™ technology is chemical-free and uses a UV lamp placed at the point of dispense to eradicate microorganisms like E. Coli and salmonella. Firewall™ is the only drinking water UV purification system that has met the strict World Health Organization requirements for Water Treatment Technologies.

    BioCote® Sanitation

    BioCote® is a silver-based antimicrobial coating that sits on the external surfaces to inhibit the growth of bacteria. It provides an additional layer of sanitization around frequently touched areas where microbes can colonize such as the buttons or levers.

    Is it easy to use a water dispenser?

    Our dispensers need little more than for users to press a button or push a lever to fill their glass

    Water dispensers are designed to suit offices, healthcare facilities, and university campuses alike. A bottleless water cooler can help declutter a crowded space, removing potential hazards, such as bottles that could fall on children; or cause them to trip up. Additional options include countertop dispensers that are far out of reach of children’s hands for an extra safety measure where required. If you’d like to re-position your unit, then request a qualified Waterlogic technician does so on your behalf.

    With an array of designs to choose from, find a water dispenser machine that adds a touch of luxury to your work space. Each model is certified to the highest standards, helping you prove your commitment to the environment by reducing the carbon footprint of your work space water consumption by up to 72%. The array of dispensing area sizes means you can easily top up a mug, jug or a sports bottle from the faucet, with intuitive paddle operators like the one found on the WL800 Max II, ensuring you’ll never struggle to fill a carafe before an important meeting.

    Water cooler benefits for all to enjoy

    Whether you pour yourself a sparkling water to mix with fresh fruit or brew a cup of coffee, you can rely on enjoying a consistently great taste every time. Furthermore, by offering a supply of drinking water, you can help your employees choose an alternative to fruit juices, cordials, and fizzy drinks.
