At Culligan UK, we believe in the power of clean water and the difference it can make in people’s lives. Our commitment to improving the quality of lives extends beyond providing exceptional hydration solutions; it encompasses supporting the communities we serve.

Proper hydration is vital for students’ overall well-being and academic performance. With fewer than one-third of primary school children drinking enough water, it’s essential that education settings ensure access to clean and refreshing water for their students.

We all know that water is essential for staying focused, maintaining energy levels, and effective brain function. This is especially true for children as they are at greater risk of dehydration due to their body’s mechanisms, such as blood sugar and body temperature regulation, still developing.

Step 2: Assessing the Location

Before proceeding with the installation, we will support you to find a suitable location for your hydration solution. Consider an area with easy access and high foot traffic, such as hallways, common areas, or sports facilities. Avoid areas such as fire escape routes or low footfall areas to ensure the machine is well-placed and accessible to everyone. If opting for a mains-fed water cooler, ensure that there is a water supply nearby to simplify the installation process.

Step 3: Preparing the Installation Area

One of our technicians will complete a site survey to access the suitability of the location and provide support and advice during the installation process. This could include checking that the required services, such as a water supply, are in place for the chosen product. Part of this step may include clearing the chosen location of any obstacles and ensuring there is sufficient space for the hydration solution.

Step 4: Installing the Drinking Fountain

Our accredited technicians have all passed the practical WHA Installation Standards and Water Regulations course, and are on hand for installation and ongoing maintenance to suit you. Once installed, a technician will conduct a test to check the machine is performing to meet your expectations. They will also sanitise the machine to ensure optimal hygiene.

We asked our Technical Manager & WHA Technical Committee Chair Darren Wilson for his thoughts on hydration solutions in Schools:

“Providing students and teachers with accessible drinking water is critical for their well-being. When considering installing a product, it is critical to consider how many people will use it, how it will be used and ensuring they are placed in locations that are accessible. Educating students about the importance of staying hydrated for better concentration and focus is absolutely crucial.”
