    ezH2O Bottle Filling Station Filter Change

    Make Updates With Help from a Trusted Brand

    Drinking water legislation is changing every day — states are requiring schools to test water and remediate, while federal initiatives include replacing lead piping nationwide. We understand it’s difficult to keep up with these changes and being short-staffed doesn’t help. But as the water delivery experts pros trust, we’re here to help make upgrading easier so that you can stay ahead of it all.

    1. Know your state’s school drinking water requirements. Many states have bills in process while others now have laws in place to test school drinking water and remediate. Make sure you’re familiar with your state’s legislation.

    1. Stay steps ahead and make upgrades now. Elkay has a broad portfolio of award-winning bottle filling stations that meet state and NSF/ANSI standards.

      • Choose from a variety of installations. There are on-wall, in-wall and even floor standing ezH2O® bottle filling stations, as well as retrofit kits that transform existing drinking fountains into filtered bottle filling stations.
      • Change filters faster with our EZ Filter Maintenance Kit. Retrofit it to any single-level filtered cooler or bottle filling station, and replace filters more efficiently through the easy access panel.
      • Plus, get quality construction and customer service with our bottle filling stations.
    Faster Fill Rate Faster fill rate than competitors
    Chill Capacity Greater chill capacity
    Filter Status Accomodates longer-lasting filters
    Dedicated Support Dedicated support before, during and after the sale
    Energy Efficient More energy efficient
    Drain System Includes real drain system specific to bottle fillers
    Stainless Steel Type 300 stainless steel
    Installation Services Installation services available

    1. Keep installation simple. Install single bottle filling station and cooler combos without worrying about drywalling. Instead, cover wall imperfections and retrofit wall work with our stainless steel back panel, which also provides some splash protection for gypsum sheetrock walls. Other accessories, like our remote chiller, can be added later to refrigerate an existing cooler.

    1. Add filtration to classrooms and more. Upgrade classroom sinks with the universal vandal-resistant filtration kit and install ezH2O Liv® Pro water dispensers in teacher’s lounges.

    1. Maintain safer water more easily.

      • Ensure there’s always access to filtered water by replacing filters regularly, which will also keep the status light green.
      • Find your correct replacement filter using our handy filter tool, and save time reordering by enrolling in our filter subscription plan. Elkay products work best with Elkay filters — beware of counterfeits.

    1. Skip the guesswork and watch our installation videos. Learn how to install bottle filling stations, coolers and filters.

    ezH2O Bottle Filling Station In School

    Advocate for Your School

    When there’s no clean drinking water available at school, it affects everyone in attendance. You may feel like the world is on your shoulders, having to provide heavy and expensive five-gallon jugs of water and disposable plastic bottles. You don’t have to go it alone — Elkay can help you get the water your school needs. Here’s how to educate your students, peers and school decision makers.

    1. Know more, teach more.  
      • The more you know about lead, the better equipped you’ll be to teach your students about it. And the more you know about ezH2O® filtered bottle filling stations, the better you can advocate for your students.
      • Learn how filtration can help fix lead in drinking water.
      • Read this success story for inspiration and help for building a case for your school.
      • Download this fun activity that educates students about filtration.
      • Provide students with this letter they can complete to request cleaner drinking water from their principal.
      • If you already have a bottle filling station, check to see if it has these lights to know it’s a filtered unit.
        If the light is yellow, it’s time to replace the filter — don’t wait for it to turn red.

    1. Influence your principal. Together, you, other staff members and parents can bring a case to your principal and school board. Show them the solution and all its benefits. Share what you know and fight for your school’s health at your next school board meeting. 

    1. Spread the word. Share what you’ve learned with your peers and community on social media. This could help you gain more support and spark fundraising ideas.

    Don’t Let Lead Go Untreated

    • Lead exposure in children has been linked to damage to the central nervous and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, and even anxiety.
    • If kids avoid drinking their school’s water all together, they could become dehydrated, impacting their cognitive performance. 2
