Do your WaterBars use a lot of energy?
The energy-saving function ensures that our WaterBars are energy efficient. If you select this function, the temperature at which the hot water is maintained will be reduced.
When the energy saving option is activated, after the WaterBar has not been in use for a period of time, the hot water temperature is maintained at 60°C rather than the regular temperature of 92-96°C. You can set two wake-up times to ensure that the water is nice and hot just when you need it.
How much water do the WaterBars provide?
It’s connected to your mains water supply so it’ll never run out – you will always have an unlimited supply of purified chilled and hot water. Both the T6 and the T7 WaterBars can provide 60 cups (200 ml) of hot water per hour and 40 cups (200 ml) of chilled water per hour.
Our WaterBars have been known to fuel whole offices (including lots of Virgin offices!) so there’s sure to be enough pure healthy water flowing for all.
