With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommending that schools and workplaces minimize the use and touching of water fountains or consider installing no-touch alternatives, FloWater recently announced the availability of foot pedal technology for its already self-sanitizing FloWater Refill Stations, making them fully “touchless.”  

The company is working with plumbing contractors and supply retailers to help replace buildings’ water fountains with the refill stations.

In addition to being “touchless” and fully self-sanitizing, the FloWater Advanced Osmosis water purification technology removes up to 99.99% of all toxins and contaminants in water, including viruses, bacteria, heavy metals like lead and arsenic, chemicals, and microplastics. With the availability of touchless foot pedal activation devices, FloWater Refill Stations now also eliminate the risk of communal surface cross-contamination, while helping save building management the time and expense of having custodial staffs continually wipe down water fountain surfaces.

FloWater Refill Stations are free-standing and easy to install, connecting to any potable water line within 10 feet, meaning that most buildings can simply replace old water fountains in the same location.

“Before COVID-19, we were seeing a high demand as building management looked to eliminate plastic waste. Now, as America reopens and plans for a safer future, touchless FloWater Refill Stations will play an essential role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses and bacteria in our offices, schools, gyms, hospitals and other buildings,” says Rich Razgaitis, FloWater CEO and co-founder.

FloWater Refill Stations have an award-winning design and advanced technology that includes:

  • Advanced Osmosis water purification with pores of approximately 0.0005 microns in size, much smaller than viruses and bacteria (which generally are anywhere from .02 to 1.0 microns in size). It removes up to 99.99% of all toxins and contaminants in water, including viruses, bacteria, heavy metals like lead and arsenic, chemicals, and microplastics.
  • Ozone-generating devices that disperse consistently throughout the day. Ozone is one of the most potent sanitization mechanisms available and is destructive to bacteria and viruses.
  • Touchless activation foot pedals for a completely hands-free experience.
  • A large fill area with a fully recessed dispensing nozzle with no bottle contact eliminates potential cross-contamination from bottle to bottle.

The FloWater technology also alkalizes and oxygenates the water and adds electrolytes for better hydration. A carbon coconut filter finishes the chilled water for a great taste.
