School Time – Water Fountains a Necessity

Posted by Conor Ryan in Water Coolers Ireland 31 Aug 2015



It is that time of year again. September means one thing school is back.The benefits and necessity of clean drinking water has been discussed in our blogs on many occasions. We now look at the importance of water fountains.This Blog is a reminder to students and teachers alike that clean drinking water is a must for health, hydration and general fitness of body and mind.
Of course kids in school can easily get a drink of water, right? At first glance, this may seem obvious.But, after some exploration, the issue is quite a bit more complicated.

Surveys from the Department of Education found that approximately 30 percent of schools reported have no access to free drinking water in school. Second, even for those that report having access to free drinking water, whether this access actually means kids are drinking water is another story.
We can all probably remember the sorry state of many water fountains in our schools. Too many are in varying states of disrepair and dysfunction. Even if they are in working order, some fountains are visually unappealing or dispense tepid, unpalatable water.
Students often express a desire for chilled water especially after a lunch break of running around.
