Long-term Partnerships

Education campuses can have dozens of drinking taps, and often multiples types of systems. That's why we help you in the long-term. Drinking taps for schools need to be serviced and maintained correctly which can be complex and time consuming for maintenance and administration staff.

At The Water People, we make this easy for you. We work with our client on a long-term basis to ensure all your taps and drinking fountains are properly maintained. We use industry leading software to keep track of the service history of each system you have on-campus.

La Trobe needed to review their supplier

After many years with their previous provider and various renovations to the campus, La Trobe Bundoora did not have a solid record of all their drinking water systems. They needed new proposals to decide whether to continue with their old provider or change to a new provider.

Continued support from our supply and maintenance service

We provided a free on-site system audit of all buildings and systems on-campus, which took three full days to complete, and submitted our recommendations. Our proposal included more than 50 new rental systems as well as ongoing maintenance and repairs for all existing systems.

La Trobe accepted our proposal, and we got to work changing over the old rental systems from the previous supplier. We changed all the rental systems in a two-week window during the semester break, minimising interruptions for students and staff.

We are proud to provide ongoing maintenance and repairs for over 200 systems at La Trobe Bundoora, including the rental systems and those owned by La Trobe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you service all brands of drinking taps for schools?

Yes, we do. Anything to do with drinking taps for schools, we are your go-to service provider. We service well-known brands such as Zip and Billi, as well as many others. We can handle all your service needs for all brands of school water bubbler and drinking water systems.

How long are your regular service contracts?

We don't have minimum terms for our service contracts. We do not believe in locking you into long-term service contracts for your school water bubbler. We feel that if you want to change providers, then we clearly aren't doing our job well enough and you should have the freedom to move on.

Instead of lock-in contracts, we provide an agreed timeline for service frequency. This keeps us honest and reliable, and ensures we maintain our high service levels at all times.

Can you service our multiple campuses?

Yes. We have service contractors Australia wide, so if you operate in multiple cities, regional, or interstate locations, you have the advantage of still dealing with only one service provider. We will maintain and coordinate all servicing and repairs from our head office in Melbourne across all of your locations.

How long are your rental contracts?

This depends on what kind of systems you need. Most of our rental contracts are three years, but we can provide bespoke rental solutions based on your needs and circumstances, and will tailor the right solution for you. We don't have a one size fits all model because we understand the differing needs of schools, universities, training organisation, and TAFEs.

How much industry experience do you have?

Established in 1990, we have been the go to drinking water experts for over 28 years. We uphold great pride in all that we do. We are a private, family owned and operated business who always goes above and beyond to ensure you get the solution you need. We can recommend and supply the right school water bubbler to suit your needs.
