Numerous studies have shown that children need to maintain good hydration throughout their day – it is a crucial component to their being able to better pay attention, retain information, as well as contributing to their overall well-being while at school.
As an employer in any educational facility, you can help by making sure that drinking water is not only available to the children but also your entire staff contingent.
A hydrated child is a much happier child. Yet another reason for all schools in the UK to ensure drinking water is easily accessible and readily available.
As one of the largest water cooler suppliers to pre-schools, schools, academies, colleges and universities throughout the UK, AquAid offer a wide range of top-quality water dispensers specifically designed to meet the small, medium or large capacity requirements of any educational facility.
Choose from our range of Mains-Fed water coolers for large schools where the water consumption is high or, from our Bottle-Fed range for schools where a water mains isn’t readily available.
When AquAid install any water dispenser in a school, these added benefits, all of which contribute towards a more holistic approach to hydration, are included:
- Installation in a location of your choice by WHA qualified and enhanced DBS checked engineers.
- Full maintenance, including emergency call-outs in the event of a breakdown.
- The supply of 100 free, individual water bottles to encourage the children to fill their water bottles throughout the day, plus 2 posters showing the benefits of hydration, suitable for the age group of the students.
- Automatic charitable donations resulting in the implementation of clean water resources for children in Africa.
It’s been a long road for us all and as we approach the summer months and the return (in part) to offices, worksites, educational facilities and at some stage, medical facilities, it’s probably fair to assume that we are all well aware of the importance of implementing hygiene and safety protocols when accessing vital drinking water.
Each AquAid water dispenser is engineered to the highest quality standards. Every water cooler is equipped with advanced hygiene and safety features, as examples:
- Hygiene guard silver impregnated dispense taps,
- Non-contact dispense points,
- Infrared sensor technology operation, and
- ‘Freshield’ anti-microbial moulded components.
Every AquAid Water Cooler, Instant Tap and Hot Water Boiler is installed and maintained by our WHA accredited qualified engineers.
As per the WHA guidelines, we sanitise all bottle-fed water coolers every 3 months and all mains-fed water dispensers every 6 months. Our WHA accredited service technicians perform all services.
AquAid, in line with Government Covid-19 protocols, have remained operational, delivering water across the UK, to essential service locations, including medical facilities and vaccination sites.
Where required, we have also installed additional water coolers where needed for workplace bubbles, thereby ensuring a constant supply of drinking water to each person within the designated bubble.

Dehydration is serious for all of us, but not more so than to our children. Children, especially those younger than ten, are often unaware of the need to drink water regularly and will only do so when they are already thirsty. By this time, their cognitive function is already reduced, by up to 20%. This loss of function affects their ability to concentrate, assimilate information as well as easily perform both mentally and physically.
Here, at AquAid, we understand how vital it is to have easy access to a constant supply of drinking water throughout the school day. This is why we have made sure that we have a range of high quality water coolers available, specifically designed to cater for a high demand of refreshing water on a continual basis.
High capacity water dispensers like the AquAid Hydrator. Designed specifically for use in schools and high usage areas, this mainsfed unit can supply up to 40ℓ of cold drinking water per hour.
Another suitable option is the AquAid Ecofill Touch-Free water dispenser; offering a host of features that include a non-contact dispense point; large bottle clearance height; ‘Freshield’ anti-microbial components and electricity free function.
The AquAid Hydrator and AquAid Ecofill Touch-Free are but two examples of a range of suitable water dispensers ensuring children have easy access to drinking water.
After all, a properly hydrated child means a healthier and happier child – more able to pay attention in class, a better capacity to learn while having sufficient (but not sugar-filled) energy to get through the day.
Not sure which water cooler is best for your school’s requirements? Not to worry, contact us at AquAid and one of our experts will guide you to establish the optimum water cooler for use at your school, gym or play area.
Many moons ago, I blogged about alternate drinking water receptacles in the event that you weren’t able to drink water directly from your water cooler.
Essentially, the blog detailed unusual drinking water receptacles. In retrospect, I realise that the title may have been a little misleading or, even worse, suggestive that your AquAid Water Cooler might not be able to deliver your refreshing drinking water (wholly untrue, of course!)
Fortunately, in the virtual world, we are quickly and easily able to rectify such incidences without wasting ink, paper or erasers. As we do here:
Allow me to introduce to you the AquAid range of Non-Contact Water Coolers, dispensing refreshing drinking water, safely and hygienically.
Each of these well-designed, innovative machines offers a host of operational safety-conscious features:
Like the infrared sensor technology on the AquAid Dual Ecofill Non-Touch water dispenser thus eliminating user contact with buttons. This high quality, durable design water dispenser also includes a smooth radius front for safety, wheelchair access and a non-contact dispense point, thereby minimising the risk of cross-contamination.
Alternatively, the stylish AquAid AQ Max Non-Touch water dispenser is perfect for installation in any workspace that requires constant access to refreshingly chilled drinking water. This well designed, no-touch Bottle Fed water cooler offers a host of user-friendly features that include a LED display, 175mm dispense gap, foot-operated non-touch technology, deep drip tray and an adjustable thermostat for accurate temperature control.
For those requiring the constant delivery of piping hot drinking water, one need look no further than AquAid’s range of Hot Water Boilers. We also offer an Optional Hygiene Adaptor for easy fitment on any of this range, ensuring a safe, no-contact supply of hot water whatever the scope of your requirements.
If you would like more information about which AquAid Touch Free Water Dispensers are the best fit for your premises, whether at home, in the workplace or at school, telephone: 0800 772 3003, e-mail: email@example.com or leave your details using the contact form on the AquAid website. We will be happy to assist.
Maintaining good hydration habits may seem less important in winter than in summer, but this is not the case. I would venture that it is actually more important to make sure you’re drinking enough water in winter than in summer.
Dehydration is much less noticeable during winter, as you don’t notice how much you sweat under layers of clothing.
The dryness in the air may dehydrate our bodies quicker than we can imagine and most often, we don’t even feel thirsty, so our need for adequate water may remain unmet*. That’s why it’s important to work pre-emptively to replenish the fluid reserves of the body, in order to avoid any physical discomfort that will stem from dehydration in the future.
As with all seasons, winter also demands special dietary and lifestyle adjustments to prepare the body for the cold weather.
Drink room-temperature drinks: Although cold drinks are absorbed quicker, warmer or room temperature drinks keep your body temperature optimal – particularly ideal if you’ve been exercising in the cold.
Make good hydration a habit: Since your ability to recognise your thirst worsens as you age, today is the ideal time to start getting into the keeping hydrated habit.
Boosting Immunity: The cold and dry air may sap your body of energy, making you feel sluggish and even making you more susceptible to cold weather illnesses. Keeping hydrated helps boost immunity thereby protecting your body.
Regulating Weight: When you’re hydrated, your body is more capable of breaking down fats, effectively regulating body weight.
Eat water rich food: Fruit and veggies have a high water content – these add volume and keep you satisfied without the calories. Broth and soup are also a great way to consume water.
Water refresh: A lot of us just do not like drinking water, period. Try adopting a different approach. Switch up your room temperature water by adding lemon, cucumber or even ginger.
Helps skin health: Drinking adequate water during winter is essential to stay hydrated, all which helps to prevent dry and dull skin.
Whatever the weather and wherever your location in the UK, the easiest and quickest route to ensuring you have a constant supply of refreshing drinking water is to install a water dispenser from AquAid. We provide a wide range of high-quality water coolers, water boilers and Instant Taps.
AquAid has also recently added a selection of Touch-Free water coolers and water boilers to our range: providing you safe and easy access to your drinking water, thereby ensuring your continued hydration health.
