In many education facilities, water fountains and water coolers have been installed to provide students with an adequate amount of outlets to quench their thirst. However, these devices also house an enormous amount of bacteria and other germs, which can lead to a higher rate of absenteeism. The classroom is meant for learning, and if students continue to get sick while attending school, students won’t be able to take advantage.
According to the National Sanitary Foundation, traditional drinking fountains have anywhere from 62,000 to 2.7 million bacteria per square inch on the spigot alone. These germs can travel through the water and into the mouths of students and teachers who are drinking from the fountain.
Schools can resolve this growing concern by removing their traditional fountains and replacing them with Quench water dispensers. These bottleless water coolers tap directly into the school’s main water supply, filter out germs and bacteria and serve each person with quality water, while virtually eliminating the possibility of bacterial contamination.
Quench offers a variety of water dispensers that may help reduce the number of sick days students take due to illness. This way, students can focus more on learning and get the most out of their education.
