Filtered Bubbler Stations a Must to Improve School
Do you remember as a child languishing on a hot summer’s day in the classroom trying to dream
up an excuse to get outside, even if just for a few minutes? Before the advent of water bottles,
asking to go to the bubbler for a cool drink of water was the norm. Now that everyone has their
own water bottle, this escape route is closed, but the memories remain of just how good that
fresh, bubbling water tasted.
One of the benefits of this dash to freedom that we weren’t aware of, was the boost our brain
cells received through that quick drink. Children in a learning environment need regular
hydration to improve their concentration. However, it is very important that this water be pure
and fresh. Most of us have water filters in our homes, but there are still some schools using old-
fashioned mains tap water bubblers.
Can Schools get a Reliable Supplier for Filtered Bubblers?
Pacific Springs supply the RM Series bubbler stations that are suitable for use in schools. They
will install the units to the school water mains and service them on an automatic schedule so that
no-one has to remember to contact them when the service is due. This is a boon to the busy
school administration section.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, these bubblers are space-age stylish and nothing like
the old, round basin type where you almost needed to immerse your head to get a mouthful of
water. Stylish, though, doesn’t mean “don’t touch me – I’ll break.” This makes them very
suitable for the robust environment of school playgrounds, gyms and sports ovals. Available in
10L, 20L and 30L per hour, there is a model to suit every location.
Pacific Springs use True Blue filters that are designed to filter up to 10 times more impurities
than other comparable Brisbane Water Filters, even though they have the same capacity as a 3-
single filtering system. The True Blue filters are more efficient because of their antibacterial
contents, requiring them to be replaced once a year instead of every six months.
What Happens to Children When They Dehydrate?
Studies have shown that a 2% drop in body water in children can trigger several concerning
responses. Difficulty focusing, fatigue and yawning, and erratic and moody behaviour are all
experienced by teachers in our classrooms every day. Constipation, aches and pains not caused
through injury or illness, and a craving for sugar and sweet foods are also worrying symptoms
that a simple drink of pure, fresh water can remedy.
Health practitioners keep telling us that by the time we feel thirsty, we are already dehydrated.
Children lose up to 12 cups of water daily through normal bodily functions. This water must be
replaced if the children are to avoid these symptoms and behaviours. Replacing the old, rusty
bubblers with new, sleek styled models that supply fresh filtered water could see a marked
change in academic performance and a drop in behavioural incidents in the playground.
The people at Pacific Springs are ready and waiting to discuss the supply of these filtered
bubblers to your school. With the Christmas break fast approaching, this is the perfect
opportunity to start the ball rolling and surprise the students with new bubblers to start the school
