Waterlogic dispensers are guaranteed free from Bisphenol-A, a chemical widely used in plastic products that has been linked to health problems. Tests by the internationally recognized SGS Laboratories in Shanghai have confirmed that no Bisphenol is present in plastic parts used in our water coolers.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) could be linked to pre-cancerous tumors, urinary tract problems and either early or delayed puberty, according to the U.S. National Toxicology Program, and has been deemed a “toxic substance” by the Canadian government. It can sometimes be found in water bottles. Waterlogic machines deliver not just the purest, cleanest, great-tasting water, but peace of mind too. Because we are committed to the highest quality and safety levels. Every time.

The Energy Star mark awarded to a selection of Waterlogic point-of-use water dispensers is hard earned. Products have to prove they prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. That is no pushover.
A selection of Waterlogic Energy Star water dispensers won their eco-friendly certification for using an approved level of energy when in operation.
Smart design means some of our coolers have an energy-saving Sleep Mode that puts the machine on standby when nobody has been to fill their cup for a while. We also meet ROHS rules for electronics and wiring and WEEE requirements on collection, recovery and recycling of equipment.
We Care. So Do You
“ENERGY STAR is more than a label awarded for energy efficiency. It is a partnership among government, business, and consumers, united in the pursuit of a common goal—to protect our environment for future generations.”
Christine Whitman (former) EPA Administrator

ETL/CE Safety Standards
Waterlogic POU dispensers meet the stringent safety and environmental standards of North American and European regulators:
ETL certified: North American certificate of conformity of facilities.
For further information, visit: http://www.intertek-etlsemko.com. Or, see a full list of Waterlogic machines that are ETL certified.
CE certified: European marking that is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with European Union health, safety and environmental protection legislation thus passing CE safety standards.
ISO9001 – Quality Management Systems
Waterlogic is certified to ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems (certified by Intertek International).
ISO 9001 is the internationally accepted standard for well managed organisations that have adopted the key quality management principles to its operations. Essentially it is a sign that the organisation has in place the systems and processes to ensure a consistent quality of service. Fundamental elements of this standard are shaped around; customer focus, management control and decision making, involvement of main stakeholders and a culture of continuing improvement.

Performance testing and certification by NSF and ANSI sorts world-leading water dispensers from the also-rans. These two organisations set and regulate national and international safety standards, and Waterlogic has achieved all the following standards:
NSF/ANSI Standard 61:
This is the standard for drinking water system components. It ensures no harmful contaminants could leach or migrate from the product/material into the drinking water.
Models with NSF/ANSI Standard 61 are WL 1000 GF, WL 2000 and WL 2500.
NSF/ANSI 55 Class A
This is the standard for ultraviolet microbiological water treatment systems. Waterlogic Firewall is certified as a Class A system (40,000 uwsec/cm2) designed to disinfect and/or remove microorganisms from contaminated water, including bacteria and viruses, to a safe level. Which it does with pure genius.
This is the standard for microbiological water purifiers. Water coolers with this certification meet the exacting health and sanitation standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Waterlogic machines have the badge, of course.
Waterlogic has the approval of the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) in the UK. This tests for water quality and makes sure water dispenser materials and components meet rigorous safety requirements.
WRAS aims to prevent waste, undue consumption, misuse, erroneous measurement or contamination of water by developing and enforcing national and international standards. Waterlogic coolers are WRAS approved products. Another sign of our very high standards.
To find out more about WRAS, visit www.wras.co.uk. Or, see a full list of Waterlogic filters and machines that are certified by the WRAS:
Waterlogic products have the Water Quality Association Gold Seal of approval. Believe us, in the water industry these are the big guys. Their Gold Seal means a cooler is proven to deliver cleaner, safer water. Their laboratory has subjected Waterlogic machines to a battery of tough tests. How did we do? We won the most recognized certification mark in the water treatment industry. The WQA Gold Seal Quality Mark. Thank you, we’ll take a bow. And you get the very best.
Why is it important?
Not all water filtration and treatment products come close to Waterlogic standards. Some make promises they cannot keep and some even introduce harmful contaminants. With so many water dispensers out there, the easily recognizable Gold Seal mark of approval tells you a cooler is safe to use and performs as advertised. All you need to know.
Waterlogic machines with the Gold Seal are:
The Water Quality Association (WQA) is a not-for-profit international trade association. For more information, visit www.wqa.org.
