Smart water dispenser brings with it a lot more that simple water dispensers. With the mains-connected drinking water dispenser RE.SOURCE, one of the polymer specialists Rehau delivers fresh, filtered tap water chilled, carbonated or boiling at the touch of a button. Direct from the tap and easy to control via a smart, innovative touchscreen display. Rehau has made use of convenient control elements and modern design combined with the highest quality of drinking water, at the same time meeting the highest safety and comfort requirements for private and commercial use.
RE.SOURCE is an under-table unit available in three configurations: BASIC, PREMIUM and PREMIUM+. The inbuilt activated carbon filter with pre-coat technology and a filter capacity of 5,000 litres removes microscopic particles up to 0.5 μm, as well as chlorine, organic substances and metallic deposits like lead and iron. The high-pressure C-shape or L-shape fitting, available in chrome and matt, dispenses filtered, hygienic water at different temperature levels. Carbon dioxide can be added to produce sparkling water, if desired. The cooler with its adjustable chilling temperature and a cooling capacity of 15 litres per hour is no louder than a standard refrigerator.
RE.SOURCE PREMIUM and RE.SOURCE PREMIUM+ offer extra features in addition to the options provided by the basic version. A clear, touchscreen display allows users to select whether they want their desired drink to be dispensed chilled or non-chilled from the tap. The filling quantity and level of carbonation can be individually adjusted. Users can save their personal favourite combinations, so they can be poured even faster. With its integrated stainless-steel boiler, RE.SOURCE PREMIUM+ also provides hot water up to 95 °C for tea and hot drinks. An inbuilt child safety lock guarantees the safety of the hot water function. This is deactivated by entering a code on the touchscreen. Changing colours on the display indicate heating progress. To prevent overheating, the appliance is fitted with a safety valve. Excess water is diverted into a drip tray.
With an integrated energy-saving mode and automatic hygienic rinsing, RE.SOURCE PREMIUM and RE.SOURCE PREMIUM+ offer users added convenience and safety. The required energy-saving and rinsing intervals can be defined using a web interface. If the appliance is not used for 72 hours, a message appears automatically on the screen and a hygiene rinse can be carried out to prevent germ formation at an early stage. Regular status updates indicate in good time if the filter needs changing or the appliance needs descaling.
