Expert advice

Our team of experts have years of experience in helping customers like you find an economical water dispensing solution.

Commercial water filtration systems

Even water sourced from the clearest spring can be contaminated by microscopic bacteria and chemicals leached from the water system itself. Our range of undersink filters includes activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, and even UV filters to ensure your water is free of impurities.

Our restaurant water filters are easily installed and robust enough to withstand heavy usage. They’re a convenient drinking water filter system for hospitality providers, and they also provide hygienic water for cooking and washing up, too.

Multi-use filtered water taps

We provide the chilled, boiling and sparkling water on tap restaurant customers have come to expect from Melbourne’s fine establishments.

Depending on your needs, we can provide all-in-one taps capable of producing whatever temperature water you require, or single-temperature faucets for specific services such as dishwashing or drink making. Keep things efficient and hygienic with our touchless tap options, or choose a tap with a fluoride, carbon filter or reverse osmosis system built in.

Stylish kitchen faucets and tapware

Every element of your restaurant or café makes an impression. Aesthetic considerations should be just as important as filtration solutions. Of course, you can have both.

We have an impressive range of stunning faucet designs to suit every restaurant’s style. Choose from modern and vintage designs to gorgeous gold, rose gold, matte black and silver selections. Each can be fitted with your choice of filtration system, of course.

As a Service Technician for The Water People, we are 100% focused on bringing you great service with a friendly smile and first class knowledge of the product we supply and install.

Installing a Sparkling Water Tap for Quat Quatta Functions Venue

the problem support image

Quat Quatta is a high-end wedding reception venue that approached us for a sparkling water solution. They wanted to explore the possibilities of reducing their costs of purchasing bottled sparkling water.

The venue also wanted to improve their efficiencies with fast table service, and to minimise waste. The minute guests arrive, their staff needed to swing into action and offer fast service. They needed a sparkling water system that could cope with the capacity of up to 160 seated guests.

the solution support image

Following our on-site inspection and recommendations, the reception compared the two options for renting a sparkling water tap or purchasing their own outright. The cost and long-term commitment of renting a sparkling water system was too high compared to purchasing the Billi Alpine Sparkling Water Tap.

The Billi sparkling water tap with a larger 6kg refillable CO2 cylinder has a large chilling capacity, dispensing 100 litres of chilled filtered water per hour. This new system has exceeded the reception's expectations.

This sparkling water solution has made the team more efficient with no more sparkling bottles to open and no more bottle waste to dispose of. Staff can fill up their carafes fast and effectively without compromising quality that their function venue demands.

Committed to sustainability

Water is our business, and we are keenly aware of our responsibility to protect our planet and the country’s natural resources. It’s a responsibility we all share. Our restaurant filtered water dispensers and water filter systems can help you, and us, rise to the challenge.

All the tap hardware and CO2 bottles used in our systems are recyclable, and many of our taps also come with power-saving features. For your restaurant, our water dispensers will help you cut down on your need for bottled water (on top of their other water quality and well-being benefits). Every step toward a greener earth matters.

How many litres of sparkling water does an instant sparkling water tap provide?

As a general rule, it takes approximately 6 g of CO2 to produce 1L of sparkling water. We recommend your system has a refillable CO2 cylinder, and all brands can be adapted with these.

CO2 cylinders come in either a 2.6 kg size which delivers approximately 433L of sparkling water, or the 1kg size which delivers approximately 1,000L of sparkling water.

Ensure you have a spare CO2 cylinder on hand in the event you run out during service.

How can I create a self-service drink station?

Many cafés and restaurants now offer a self-serve water drinking station to which patrons can help themselves. This avoids customers waiting around for service and frees up your staff to serve food.

As long as you have a water supply outlet and power point where you wish to have this, then your options are endless. It's as simple as building a cabinet (or adapting an existing one) and installing your tap. While a drain is also recommended it is not mandatory for this setup.

Sparkling water systems for restaurants often feature a drip tray that is easy to clean and collects any water spills eliminating the need for a drain. Most brands of filtered water taps have an instant shut-off function that shuts the tap off as soon as the handle or lever is released. A drinks station could simply offer filtered chilled and ambient drinking water, or filtered chilled and sparkling drinking water.

What are the ongoing costs associated with maintaining a sparkling water tap?

The brand you choose will determine the price of the associated consumables. As a guide, the replacement water filter will cost approx. $180 every 6-months, and the refillable CO2 cylinders will cost between $65-$95 (depending on the cylinder size) over the same period. 

You will also need to consider labour costs if you do engage an industry professional. Service callouts cost approx. $100, though this may vary depending on your location and the service provider. Plumbers may charge higher fees, and industry prices do vary for service fees on sparkling water systems for restaurants.

What considerations should I explore when considering a filtered water tap?

Start by considering the needs of your restaurant’s customers. All filtered water taps have the option of offering filtered chilled, sparkling, or boiling water in one single tap. These taps are also available with just one water type or with a combination of these.

It's critical you consider what capacity your establishment will require in the busiest of times. How many cups of chilled/sparkling and or boiling water can you expect to use per hour in peak times? This will determine the correct size system for your needs and all brands offer varied capacities to suit small to the heaviest of usage.
