Plumbex was established in April 2004 initially supplying filtered water systems to the domestic market.
Within in a short time it was discovered that there was a need in schools for an alternative to water coolers and drinking fountains, allowing children access to filtered water without leaving the classroom.
We first installed filtered water systems, which include an additional tap in classrooms, in the summer of 2004 and from then on we have installed over 5000 systems in more than 400 schools covering over 60 local education authorities.
Fulfilling the drinking water requirements of schools has become our main area of business and has led us into also supplying mains fed water and bottle coolers, undersink chillers, instant hot water boilers and fountains.
Many schools still have undrinkable tank fed water in classrooms and we have been able to solve this issue by installing filter taps in classrooms and connecting to the nearest mains supply by means of a small cable.
We also supply children's water bottles. These are the most child and school friendly bottles, being non leak and without pull caps that can easily damage young teeth.
Our 'Drinking Helps Thinking' bottle is available with no minimum order, 2 bottle sizes and 7 cap colours that can be mixed and matched at a low fixed price will, we hope, help schools with their drinking water strategy in the future.
In addition we offer 'packages' in the LEAs we service by enabling filtered water systems to be installed in all classrooms with ongoing filter renewals and children's water bottles every year for every child for a fixed price.
