Clean, safe water. It’s something we all need access to – wherever we are. That’s why we designed aquaBUBBLER to be the perfect hydration solution for all environments. When we say aquaBUBBLER is the drinking fountain of the future, we’re serious. Every step in our process – from design consultation to after-sales support – is forward-thinking and follows our core values:Sustainability
- • Efficient use of water
- • 100% replaceable and recyclable components
- • A minimal carbon footprint. aquaBUBBLER is locally made, which reduces transport emissions and is great for local industry.
- • Reduced need for bottled water. The aquaBUBBLER’s drink bottle refill facility means less waste from disposable plastic water bottles.
Style -The aquaBUBBLER’s range of modern colours and designs provides an appealing alternative to the dull, stained metal surface of outdated drinking fountains.
Ergonomics- aquaBUBBLER’s ergonomic design makes it convenient to use.
Hygiene - We work tirelessly to make the aquaBUBBLER as hygienic as possible and ensure it appeals to even the most germ-phobic water seekers. The drinking bowl is made from stainless steel and the dish is specifically designed to prevent birds bathing in it— a common problem with traditional models.
Durability - aquaBUBBLERs are extremely robust and are vandal resistant and graffiti proof. They last a long, long time, and still look great!
Flexibility - aquaBUBBLERs are fully customisable.
Lifetime care - We take care of each and every aquaBUBBLER for its entire lifetime; providing total support. That’s why aquaBUBBLER comes with a parts and workmanship guarantee of five years. And when an aquaBUBBLER has fulfilled its life, we take full responsibility for dissembling the unit.

The TPA is an affiliated member of the Australian Primary Principals Association, Australian Government Primary Principals Association and the Australian Secondary Principals Association. These organisations provide Tasmanian public school principals with a voice at the national table, with crucial national policy influence and with important links to the International Confederation of Principals. National perspectives, and the capacity to make contributions at that level, are critical to policy development and implementation in our home state, in our schools, and for our students. These connections are important to our capacity to lobby at political levels and contribute significantly to equity, fairness, innovation and contemporary leadership across Australia. As members of the TPA, principals have access to on-line resources and professional learning opportunities provided by these organisations, as well as a sense of connection and interstate collegiality in the challenging and rewarding role of school leadership.
