A New Eco-Friendly Twist to Water Fountains
It’s time to rethink what we know about water fountains. Elkay ezH20 provides a bottle filling station that reduces consumer usage of disposable plastic bottles with touchless, sanitary operation that’s three times faster than a standard fountain. It’s easy, fast, and elegant and it’s the future. Hundreds of environmentally friendly campuses and high schools already have these filling stations installed.
How it Works
The new Elkay Water Bottle Filling Station is easy to use, all you have to do is hold a water bottle under a sensor and let the machine pour the water. It easily accommodates reusable drinking cups or large containers. It comes with an optional 5” LCD monitor screen, system diagnostic for ease of maintenance and enhanced bottle filters, with a 3000 gal capacity. There is an inbuilt refrigeration system that can turn off in times of non-use for energy savings.
Other features include:
- Recessed aperture for clean fill with minimal splash.
- Low energy LED lighting that provides illumination for dark bottles.
- Electronic sensor activated for touchless sanitary operation.
- In wall units and outdoor options.
- Over ten colors to choose from.
- Combo options.

- Environmentally friendly: many disposable water bottles simply get thrown out. For instance: In 2012, only nine percent of the total plastic waste generated was recycled according to the EPA. According to Eco Watch, plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean’s surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile.
- Saves money since refilling a water bottle is much cheaper than constantly buying bottled water. Case in point, if your were to refill 365 bottles of water in a year with the Bottle Refill station, it would amount to an annual savings of approximately $550! (Check out how much you could potentially save with the Bottled Water Cost Calculator.)
- All the water from the filling stations is thoroughly filtered to purify it before consumption, making it safe and tasty drinking water!
- Vandal resistant: ideal for high traffic applications such as gyms, educational facilities, hospitals or large office buildings.
- Stylish, durable and easy to clean.
