Frequently Asked Questions
Is it easy to set up?
- To see how easy it is to set up watch the set up video (above). An instruction card is provided in a pocket in the carry bag.
Is it good for large events?
- One unit is not normally enough for large events. There is the capacity to link multiple units together - refer to the Hydration Station Hire List. Bulk Water is a commercial organisation that caters for large events with multi stations and their own portable water supply.
What taps are able to be used?
- All regular outside garden taps are suitable. A two piece tap attachment is included in the bag which covers two different tap sizes. The tap attachment is suitable for the station hoses but not standard garden hoses.
Is there a water fountain included?
- No, the station is only for filling water bottles. There are larger stations within the region which have a fountain and bottle filling capability.
Is it easy to transport?
- Yes. The station fits in most small cars with the back seat down. It comes in a large canvas bag with wheels. There is also a strap to help with carrying it up steps etc.
