When choosing the right water dispenser for your gym, you must take a few key questions into account.

Choosing a BRITA water dispenser for your gym

By providing a sustainable water supply for your gym, your members will keep themselves hydrated and energised. With a choice of unchilled still, chilled still, semi-sparkling and sparkling water, our range of BRITA mains-fed water dispensers are the perfect addition to all fitness environments. Of course, you understand why water is so important for those who work out. The only question around the matter really is, which water dispenser is the ideal fit for your gym?

Making a water dispenser easily accessible for your gym members is important, as well as keeping it stored in a safe place. Having a floorstanding water dispenser installed encourages members to refill, keep themselves hydrated and reduce the amount of plastic waste. The floorstanding BRITA Top Pro provides unchilled still, chilled still, semi-sparkling and sparkling with a touch display, providing your members with an easy water dispenser system.

Like our floorstanding water dispenser, our countertop water dispenser provides all the same features but as a countertop model. Place it on top of a unit in your gym, allowing members to easily access water on demand. The control panel can be adjusted on a lower level for those wheelchair users, creating a barrier-free environment.

Where is the best place a put a water dispenser in a gym?

No matter the time of day, gyms are extremely high-traffic areas, so keeping your fitness environment organised and eliminating any risks when members move from machine to machine is important. It is advised to place a water dispenser against a wall close to running machines or stair masters. This way members are in constant site of a water dispenser and can access water when needed. Other areas including changing rooms and corridors are perfect places to have a water dispenser installed.

Sustainability and hygiene at BRITA

Sustainability is at the core of BRITA. We are constantly aiming to reduce our business' carbon footprint by improving our product manufacturing methods and encouraging others to follow a sustainable approach. By purchasing one of our BRITA water dispensers, you will be contributing to reducing plastic waste.


Ultimately, either a floorstanding or countertop will be a great addition to your gym. Which one you choose all comes down to space. If you have more space, we recommend opting for a floorstanding water dispenser for your gym.

These are also ideal for high-traffic places like hallways and receptions. If you are more conscious of space and would rather have a space-savvy water dispenser, we recommend going for a countertop system.

They are both easily installed and come with an option for BRITA maintenance.
