How we ensure your water is as safe as it is refreshing

Hygiene has been at the core of our research and development programme since the beginning. Over the years we’ve focused on finding new ways to make our appliances more efficient and hygienic. Here are the six ways in which we ensure water dispensed from a Borg & Overström dispenser is as safe as it is refreshing.


Sterizen® is the sanitisation component of our hygiene system Totality®. It is an antimicrobial, antipathogen procedure that significantly reduces bacteria build-up within an appliance.

The outside of a water dispenser can become a haven for bacteria. All of our appliances are coated with Fynil®, a crack resistant resin finish that prevents build-up of bacteria on the surface of our water dispensers.

How Fynil® works



This is the third component of our Totality® hygiene system and is a directed Ultraviolet light used at the point of dispense to reduce bacteria.

Routine water testing

Water testing is one of our stringent quality control measures and is carried out in our in-house lab, the first of its kind in our industry.

What we test for


Superior cooling

Dry Chill® is a system that cools water without it ever coming into contact with air, greatly reducing the chance of contamination.

How Dry Chill works

Our drinking water dispensers are available through selected partners
