Davidson High School Installs Multi-access Drinking Trough for Students

Davidson High School Drinking Trough An Aquafil Hydrobank with three drinking fountains and red HDPE panels installed on a wall with a light green mural

Davidson High School has introduced a new and improved Aquafil drinking trough for school to students with the help of Civiq.

Situated in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the secondary school wanted to provide enough drinking water access points to accommodate its large number of students, and to provide a healthy alternative to sugary drinks – whilst saving money and the environment.

To achieve this, Davidson High partnered with Civiq to find a solution that would be the most economical and efficient for the school, especially for their drinking trough.

The school’s facility managers were originally interested in a freestanding unit before Civiq demonstrated that the new Hydrobank would offer a more cost-effective answer to the school’s needs.

The Aquafil Hydrobank is Civiq’s signature drinking trough, engineered with three drinking fountains and three anti-bacterial bottle refill nozzles – great for schools. The product can be configured with an inbuilt filtration system that provides clean, contaminate-free water to users.

The trough is manufactured with a robust, vandal-resistant design for exceptional performance in outdoor playgrounds, with high-density polyethylene end-panels available in nine vibrant colours.

Product Designer, Adrian Wilson, is enthusiastic about introducing the state-of-the-art Aquafil Hydrobank to Davidson High and believes it will be an excellent addition to the school’s facilities.

“It is clearly the right product for Davidson High School. With over 800 students, offering multiple access points means that more students can stay hydrated during school hours – and the colours animate the school environment.”

Students now have one convenient location for refilling their water bottles or taking a drink from the bubbler.

Located in the school’s quadrangle, the Aquafil Hydrobank is easy to spot with its bright red end-panels which have significantly brightened up the school’s atmosphere.

The all-in-one drinking trough ensures that multiple users can access the station at any one time, and is especially popular during sports and before class time.

The inbuilt filtration system has played a significant role in encouraging more students to drink water and has a role in quenching the thirst of Davidson High School students as an alternative to sugary beverages sold in the canteen.
