MAKE YOUR SCHOOL A
SAFER, CLEANER PLACE!

Swap out those old water fountains
for our hands-free bottleless water coolers that deliver
unlimited clean, healthy water completely hands-free.

Clean drinking water is essential for good health and vitality. For school-aged children and school faculty, access to clean, cold, and convenient water and ice can boost learning and productivity. While traditional water fountains have long been the go-to solution for school systems, COVID-19 has turned these fountains into a dangerous breeding ground for not only the SARS-COV-2 virus but for others that linger in the stagnant pipe water. Office H2O offers not only a cleaner alternative but a safer one that ensures students and faculty continue to have access to pure, clean drinking water on demand.

We need to keep our children healthy and minimize as many health risks as possible, which is why replacing your standard water fountain is so important. These fountains are some of the most germy appliances in the building. Help fight against germs at the water fountain, such as:

  • Legionella
  • Rotavirus
  • Streptococci
  • E. Coli
  • Coliform
  • And More!

Case Study: Elkhart Community Schools

Challenge:

Elkhart Community Schools in Indiana was challenged with finding a safe, clean, and affordable alternative to traditional water fountains or the expensive Elkay water filtration systems which can cost up to $2,000 per unit upfront. The challenge presented was to provide clean water and combat the spread of COVID-19 and other surface germs that are often lingering on school drinking fountains. In addition to the surface germs, viruses, and bacteria, school administrators and building managers are battling waterborne bacteria, such as Legionella, which lingers in the pipes from the stagnant water that sat over the summer due to shutdowns.

Battling COVID-19 in Schools

Schools across the country are scrambling to ensure a safe, clean learning environment for students of all ages as they bring students back for the 2020-2021 school year. School systems like Elkhart Community Schools have taken advantage of funding through the CARES Act, which supports the schools’ investment in sanitary items. Clause 7 supports the use of funds for water coolers, stating that “Purchasing supplies to sanitize and clean the facilities of a local educational agency, including buildings by such agency,” are encouraged.

Additionally, Clause 12 of the Act specifically states, “Other activities that are necessary to maintain the operation of and continuity of services in local educational agencies and continuing to employ existing staff of the local education agency.”

Traditional water solutions, including Elkay filtration stations, carry the burden of cross-contamination, making it clear that these systems no longer meet the sanitation requirements school systems are now employing. Schools can now take the liberty of using CARES Act funding and forgiveness towards investment in touch-free bottleless water coolers. When they do so, they feel more confident about the drinking water for students and faculty.
