Hot and cold gym water cooler

Convenient and quickly installed, filtered water coolers are well suited to the hustle of a thriving gym. They provide a combination of either chilled and ambient-temperature filtered water, or chilled and hot filtered water.

Our plumbed-in water coolers draw their supply directly from your mains water, so you don’t have to worry about lifting a cumbersome 15L water bottle off the floor. Not only does that cut down on your ongoing costs, but it’s also much safer for our precious Australian environment.

Durable, versatile drinking fountains

Our range of versatile drinking fountains can meet all the needs a bustling gym or a compact home gym. We offer touch-free taps for the hygiene-conscious, wall-mounted units for limited spaces, and robust outdoor fountains for those who like to work up a sweat under the Australian sun.

Every drinking fountain is made from rust-resistant stainless steel or UV-stabilised polyethylene, guaranteeing hygienic hydration. Our trusted designs also offer no-splash bows, swivel bottle fillers and easily-replaceable filters.

Hygienic, reliable water filters

Customers reasonably expect clean drinking water at every establishment. But at the gym? They demand it. If they’re going to push their bodies to the limit, they need to trust that the water fueling them is as pure as can be.

The Water People’s exceptional range of water filters guarantees a perfect sip every time. Our filters not only clear water of harmful contaminants, but also remove foul odours and improve the clarity and taste of your water.

The sales department were able to answer all of the questions related to the job we needed done. They made suggestions on what products and services were best suited to get everything complete. The whole experience was professional and hassle free. From start to finish the service was fantastic, and the job that was undertaken is now complete and the water fountain is working without fault.

Using our industry leading software, we keep track of the service history of each gym water fountain to ensure they're always maintained and working correctly.

Urgent Repairs For Virgin Active

the problem support image

On-site gym water fountains were not chilling water and were out of warranty

The maintenance mangaer of Virgin Active contacted The Water People in May 2018 with the challenge of 5 on-site wall recessed drinking fountains (not supplied by The Water People) that were not chilling. Gym members were complaining the drinking water was not cold enough. The internal chassis (chillers) had broken down and the systems were only around 4 - 5 years old.

After an initial free on-site inspection and some product research, The Water People discovered that the manufacturer of the existing drinking fountains was asking exorbitant prices for replacement chillers. The manufacturer was no longer making the internal chillers required for the fountains. We had to come up with a cost-effective and efficient solution.

To save Virgin Active from the huge expense of replacing all of their drinking systems with new ones, we came up with a workaround solution. Our solution was to simply replace the internal chillers with the Australian made Waterlux 14 litre chiller, an internal inline filter and fittings kit. All of these parts were measured on site. Ventilation was set up and we provided the systems for their on-site maintenance technician to replace, under our guidance on site himself.

The result? Five drinking water systems are now dispensing cold, filtered and refrigerated water. We've now established a great relationship with other Virgin Active branches both local and interstate. These branches have also opted to repair their drinking systems with our own tailored solution.

Committed to sustainability

In today’s world, minimising our business and personal environmental impact is a necessity. And we’ve taken specific measures to do just that.

You can keep your conscience clear and green knowing that, thanks to our salvage partners, all of our drinking tap hardware is recyclable, as are our CO2 bottles. We have also made an effort to stock products with green power-saving features, such as sleep mode and scheduling. Every little step counts.

I'm applying for a government grant to purchase drinking water systems for my sporting club. Can you please provide me with a quote I can submit to the government?

Certainly, send us an enquiry via our contact page, and we'll gladly provide you with a professional quote you can include with your government sporting grant application.

Our gym’s drinking fountain is no longer chilling. Can you assist us?

Yes. Most likely, the internal chassis (or chiller) has run its course. We can replace the internal chassis, but it may prove to be more costly than just replacing the entire drinking fountain. Ask us and we'll advise you based on the age of your system and usage.

The gym’s bottle filler tap has snapped and is now leaking water. Can you provide us with a solution fast?

This is very common with gyms and sporting clubs as the manufacturer's standard bottle filler tap can appear to retract and bend when it is not designed to do so.

Bottle filler taps usually cost around $80, so the most cost-effective solution is to remove the broken tap and replace it with one like our Antique Water Filter Tap. Replacements like this don't bend and you'll get a longer service life out of this repair solution.

Our drinking fountain has lost pressure. Why?

More than likely it is the filters blocking up and restricting water flow. If it has been more than 6-months, then it's probably time to replace the water filter. A new water filter will most likely fix the pressure issue with your gym water fountain.

Why should I trust The Water People to supply my gym’s water dispensers?

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 that always goes above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction. 

We don't lock you into any service contracts as we don't feel we need to. The quality and reliability of our products and services speak for themselves.

What should I consider when choosing a gym water fountain?

A licensed plumber should install all gym water fountains. They require a water inlet and a waste drain outlet. A licensed plumber must conduct the installation according to industry regulations and standards.

We can supply a system for you with all the fittings needed ready for your local plumber to install. We recommend you consult with your local plumber first so they can provide you with an installation quote. Your plumber should be able to provide you with a quote for the work required to ensure the installation of a gym water fountain within your facility is a viable option.
