Frequently asked questions
What chilling capacity are your drinking fountains?
Water quality differs in all areas of Australia and even the water quality from your building may be different from the one next door, so it’s always important to add a filter system to ensure the water coming from your drinking fountain is clean and healthy for those who use it.
Adding a high-quality filter system can also prevent residue build-up from inside your drinking fountain and protect the internal mechanisms to give them a longer life. You can install your drinking fountain without filters, but we do not recommend it.
What chilling capacity are your drinking fountains?
We offer four different chilling capacities in our drinking fountain product range:
- 60 cups chilled per hour
- 120 cups chilled per hour
- 140 cups chilled per hour
- 175 cups chilled per hour
Can I install my drinking fountain outside with no cover?
We strongly recommend that you install outdoor water fountains undercover to protect it from weather damage. Our drinking fountains are refrigerated, and the internal chiller is powered by an electrical cord, and your system will require water connection in and drainage going out.
Installing a water fountain outdoors without cover will result in breakdowns and damage to the drinking fountain, filters and connections, and the internal chiller not operating efficiently.
What is the cheapest drinking fountain you sell?
If you are after the most economical drinking fountain on the market without compromising quality, we recommend the Waterlux Robust Drinking Fountain. It is a single moulded unit, not steel, making it more affordable than most others on the market. Prices start from $1040 + GST with optional extras such as filter kit, delivery and installation.
What warranty do you offer on your drinking fountains?
All of our drinking fountains come with comprehensive manufacturer’s warranties with the Zip and Waterlux Robust offering a 12-month warranty and the Billi Bubblers offering a 2-year warranty.
How much are replacement filters for your drinking fountains and how can I get these?
We only supply high-quality, certified water filters, and if you do add a filter system to one of our drinking fountains, we supply the Aquakleen Ezi Twist Twin Water Filter System. As a set of both the pre-sediment filter and the post carbon filter, the twin pack will cost $127 + GST.
How often should I change my drinking fountain filters?
We recommend both the filters be every six months to maintain your water health and drinking fountain longevity.
Do you offer installation of drinking fountains?
We offer full installation in both Melbourne metro and Sydney metro areas as long as the water connection coming in and water drainage going out is all connected and ready to go. If not, or you reside outside these areas, we offer Australia wide delivery ready for your local plumber to conduct the installation.
What types of service do you offer once my drinking fountain is installed?
We offer warranty repairs Australia wide for all of our drinking fountains. We have on-ground service technicians in Melbourne and Sydney metro areas for repairs, service, or routine filter changes. Replacement filters can be purchased through our online store, email or phone order and we ship Australia wide.
Can I change the filters easily myself?
We supply our Aquakleen Ezi Twist filter system with our drinking fountains to make it easy for you to change yourself. Much like changing a standard light bulb, they simply click in and click out making filter changes very easy to do yourself.
