Knox Grammar School Students Stay Hydrated with Civiq’s Aquafil Drinking Fountain Bubblers

Knox Grammar School Students utilising Aquafil Pulse Bubbler Drinking Fountain and Water Bottle Refilling Station from CIVIQ

Knox Grammar School wanted to increase the number of drinking fountain stations for students across their campuses to address the shortage of water amenities – and the team at Civiq were recruited to assist.

Based in Wahroonga, NSW, the school manages three main campuses for its Prep and Senior school students and needed a drinking water solution that would accommodate users of all ages.

The drinking water fountain bubblers needed to be accessible to students during their break time, as well as in outdoor locations in close proximity to key sports facilities. They also needed to include an easy-to-use bottle-refill option.

The private school reached out to Civiq due to the company’s extensive Aquafil and Elkay branded drinking water range, with products suited for both indoor and outdoor use.

Staff at the school examined a range of options and decided on the Aquafil Pulse Junior and Pulse Senior drinking fountain and water bottle refill stations.

These products are ideal for outdoor spaces with their robust design and high-visibility external signage panels, and come with inbuilt bottle refill as well as drinking fountain technologies.

The Aquafil Pulse Senior features a taller 1400mm height, specified for the Knox Senior campus, while the shorter 1200mm-height Pulse Junior was chosen for the Prep School campuses.

The station’s external panels were redesigned with bespoke graphics, featuring Knox Grammar colours and logo, in order to complement the branded campus environment. Key educational messaging was also included in the panel design, offering simple instructions for use.

The Aquafil Pulse units are ideal for campuses due to their low maintenance requirements, hygienic internal drainage (allowing for both indoor and outdoor installation) and anti-bacterial bottle refill nozzle technology. The soft rubber guard on the drinking fountain bubblers also prevents enthusiastic users from accidental mouth injury!

Civiq Sales Representative, Brittany Thompson, worked closely with Knox Grammar School in selecting the right product for their campuses.

“Knox Grammar School were great to work with. The Aquafil Pulse drinking water station was clearly the right product for their campus needs and they were able to customise the design in a way that ties in nicely with their school environment and brand”, she said.

“The finished product looks great – every time I go to visit the campus I see so many students using the drinking fountain bubblers and bottle refillers, it is great to see”.

Nine Aquafil Pulse drinking water stations are now in operation throughout Knox Grammar School, with more specified for the new performing arts centre, which is due to open later in 2018.

Students now have readily available drinking fountains and water refilling stations on the premises for use between classes, during sports, lunch, and recess breaks, as well as before and after school care.

Not only are the drinking water stations keeping students’ thirst quenched, they are encouraging healthy hydration over sugary drinks and reducing unnecessary waste by promoting refilling over single-use bottled drinks.
