“The best part is the cooled water. It can be very warm in our office and in the Tikibad, so having cooled water is a necessity to stay hydrated. We use the water dispenser a lot.“

All factors that are important at Duinrell and the waterpark, as water is an important commodity in the park, both for holiday guests and employees.
Before the Aquablu Refill was introduced, people drank water straight from the tap. What meant certain problems where involved. The water from the tap was too warm, especially during summer or around the pool, leaving people dehydrated and sometimes overheated. This led to people drinking unhealthy but cooled soda’s. This was both a problem in terms of health and in plastic bottles and cans being used.
Some people even declined drinking water from the tap, as a lot of foreigners do not know the water quality from the tap in the Netherlands. What led to the earlier mentioned problems like dehydration and the tendency to choose unhealthy chilled soda drinks.
The waterdispenser provided the perfect solution for all these factors. People now have acces to cooled and sparkling water, making sure that the people are hydrated and healthy. Now, they do not have to drink warm water from the tap in an environment that is also warm. They can choose chilled fresh water. Furthermore, the option to add sparkled and flavored water provides the people with a healthy alternative to drinking soda.
The results were profound. A significant increase showed in the amount of healthy beverages being drunk. And not only did people drink a lot more water, they are also happier. As they now have chilled personalized drinks to choose from. The water dispenser is currently an important meeting spot for people gathering at the Tiki bad in Duinrell.
