Installing water coolers for schools offers a fantastic range of benefits that will help both students and teachers alike.
The NHS recommend that children of all age groups drink a minimum amount of water per day, with 1-3 year-olds needing one litre, 4 to 8-year-olds requiring 1.2 litres and kids aged over 9 needing at least 1.5 litres per day.
For adults, this rises to around 2 litres per day, which means everyone in the school needs easy access to source of sustainable, clean and healthy water.
It is easy to forget that until the late 1990s access to drinking water wasn’t so readily available in schools across the UK. The introduction of the Healthy Schools Programme helped to change all that and now it is a minimum expectation of most parents.
Water coolers and water boilers for schools enable everyone to drink the water they need to remain hydrated through the day. We’ve supplied countless high capacity watercoolers to schools in the South East and across the country, our machines able to deliver up to 40 litres of water per hour, while offering an immediate draw off of 120 cups.
This enables students to refill their sports bottles throughout the day, while teachers are able to do the same in staff rooms and common rooms when in need of a refreshing brew. We supply three-quarter sized fountains that are suitable for younger students, along with wall brackets for easy installation and leak detectors. Just as importantly, they feature SIPP sanitising systems that self-sanitise the cooler’s reservoir, maintaining the health of everyone who uses it.
