Indoor and outdoor drinking fountains

The Water People’s carefully curated list of filtered water fountains offers schools the robust solutions they need. Whether entering the first grade or preparing for their final exams, your boisterous and growing students will need a free-flowing supply of delicious filtered water.

Our excellent selection of interior and exterior water bubblers for schools can be wall-mounted or left free-standing. These drinking fountains provide a chill or ambient water supply, and even offer no-touch activation for added hygiene. Plus, they boast sturdy yet attractive designs for indoor and outdoor use.

Wall-mounted water units

Our wall-mounted school water coolers are the perfect solution to accommodate students of different heights. Installed at appropriate heights, depending on which grades they service, you can ensure your students never struggle with unsanitary school drinking troughs or a fixed-height drinking fountain again. These units also enable students to quickly refill their water bottles with ambient or chilled water on the go.

You may also find our hot water units ideal for science labs and home economics rooms — or in the teachers’ lounge for those who need a quick tea break.

Undersink filters

Reliably safe drinking water facilities are critical at schools, universities and TAFEs, where the institution is responsible for the health and well-being of students and staff. Our commercial undersink water filters ensure your school’s cohort is well cared for.

Our school water purifiers utilise chlorine, alkaline, fluoride and reverse osmosis filters to clear your water supply of all contaminants. Our filters will safely remove all bacteria, microscopic particulates and heavy metals.

We are 100 per cent focused on bringing you great service with a friendly smile and first class knowledge of the product we supply and install. We understand students and staff need to be at the top of their game and hydration during learning is a key factor in absorbing as much information as possible. We adapt to the system that is currently at the premises, or we completely change and evolve it to benefit usability and functionality in your space.

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.

The Water People maintain over 200 water systems for La Trobe University Bundoora

the problem support image

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.

Committed to sustainability

Environmental responsibility is a critical lesson for today’s students to learn. It’s a lesson we’ve certainly taken to heart. The Water People has taken concrete steps to foster sustainable practices in our field and protect our irreplaceable natural environment.

By partnering with leading salvage companies, we can recycle all of our CO2 bottles and tap hardware to reduce metal and plastic waste. Many of our products even come with built-in power-saving features to reduce your school’s energy consumption. Your students can and should be incredibly proud of their school’s clean water and environmental initiatives.

There’s no lie in saying we’re in high demand. And it’s not just because of the quality of our products; it’s because of our outstanding customer service. We go the extra mile to ensure your university’s complicated drinking water dispenser system is in perfect condition all year round.

University campuses can have hundreds of drinking taps and multiple types of systems. We use industry-leading software to keep track of the service history of each system you have on your multiple campuses so that we can proactively service your fountains, faucets and filters before anything goes wrong.

Servicing and support

Drinking taps for schools and universities need proper servicing and maintenance to avoid flooding and ensure the water is clean, safe, and healthy. We provide ongoing scheduled maintenance and emergency repairs to ensure you always have water.


System rentals

Education facilities often rent drinking water systems instead of purchasing them outright. This can be more cost-effective and convenient with ongoing servicing, maintenance, and filter changes in the rental fee. We provide all the services you need as part of our rental agreements.

Do you service all brands of bubblers for schools?

Yes, we do. We are your go-to service provider for anything to do with bubblers, drinking taps and water filters for schools. We service well-known brands such as Zip and Billi, as well as many others.

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 stellar service levels.

Can you service our multiple campuses?

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

How long are your rental contracts?

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

How much industry experience do you have?

Established in 1990, we have been the go-to drinking water experts for over 30 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 you get the solution you need.
