The HydraChill concept was developed through a working party of UK water companies operating initially through Water UK under the umbrella of the Water For Health initiative.
The group’s objective was to develop and publicly trial a system which could help radically improve public 'on-the-go' access to fresh, chilled drinking water in a format which could also highlight important health, hydration & environmental issues.
HydraChill is a UK business, established to trial and develop the principle. UK made, HydraChill Water Refill Stations were initially piloted launched in co-operation with DwrCymru Welsh Water, Northumbrian Water and Thames Water in a series of trials designed to guide and inform on suitability in a range of locations and configurations. The units have demonstrated unparalleld performance capability and huge user popularity and became the first to offer Transport for London commuters free drinking water in a project supported by The Mayor of London and Thames Water.
The unique 2-in-1 re-fillable container and water units, a world first, have proved particularly popular with consumers and customers, offering an original means to support the provision of free water through brand enhanced reusable sports bottles.
In progressive iterations HydraChill has launched a further generation of media screen units. Optional, retrofitable screens can display recorded, live and interactive information, generate advertising revenue or serve as a valuable information and local events tool
