    • Q: Our office is temporarily closing, and we have a Waterlogic dispenser, what do we do?

We are managing our supply chain to ensure that our customers remain unaffected by the situation and we will continue to closely monitor events and react accordingly. As of now the only regions that may be impacted are listed under ‘Will Waterlogic remain open’ FAQ.
    • Q: Will I experience a change in service?

    • Q: Will a Waterlogic engineer still carry out on-premises maintenance for our dispensers?

      A: We continue to follow government advice and shutdown measures. If regulations and staff availability allow, on-premises service visits will continue as usual, provided our customers request them. We are taking every measure to keep employees and customers healthy and safe.

      • Avoid physical contact during every visit, with no handshaking or sharing of items (including pens or tools) and always stay at least 6 ft away from customers
      • Wear latex gloves throughout the visit
      • Use provided sanitization equipment to disinfect the dispenser on every visit
      • Instruct technicians to use hand sanitiser for 20 seconds before and after every site visit

    Product Related Questions

    • Q: How can Waterlogic guarantee that shipping dispensers from one location to another does not not transfer the Coronavirus into my workplace?

      A: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces. Studies suggest that coronaviruses may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment). Although we maintain safe and hygienic practices throughout our supply chain, we cannot guarantee that our dispensers are free from contamination during shipping. However, we can offer peace of mind that every dispenser is sanitized thoroughly before use by customers.
    • Q: Does the Firewall® technology used in Waterlogic machines kill the Coronavirus?

      A: Our patented Firewall ® technology purifies water throughout the length of the dispensing faucet: a feature no other POU dispenser offers. This technology prevents viruses, bacteria and microbial cysts from contaminating drinking water and causing illness. Firewall® is proven to eliminate up to 99.9999% of viruses. However, it has not been tested against the Coronavirus.
    • Q: Does the antimicrobial BioCote® surface protection protect users from the Coronavirus?

      A: BioCote® built-in antimicrobial protection restricts the growth of bacteria and mold around the dispensing area and filter, reducing the potential for cross-contamination and keeping the dispenser fresher and cleaner for longer. Although proven to reduce microbes by 99.5% within 2 hours, BioCote® is not tested or certified to eliminate coronavirus. We advise regular dispenser cleaning and sanitizing with disinfectant spray or wipes, a strong focus on hand hygiene for all users, as well as following up-to-date guidance from government bodies and health authorities.
    • Q: Can people catch the Coronavirus from any surface?

      A: According to the World Health Organization, the virus spreads from person-to-person via small droplets from the nose or mouth. These droplets spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. The droplets can land on objects and surfaces, which a person may then touch, resulting in the possible transmission of COVID-19 if that person then touches their eyes, nose or mouth. To learn more about coronavirus (COVID-19), see the World Health Organization guidelines
    • Q: What is the best way to clean my Waterlogic machine?

      A: We advise regular dispenser cleaning and sanitizing with disinfectant spray or wipes, a strong focus on hand hygiene for all users, as well as following up-to-date guidance from government bodies and health authorities. Focus on the dispensing area, paddles and buttons.
