Canaletas Fuentes y dispensadores de agua

Get advice on sanitation options.  Sanitation is a process of complete and regular disinfection of the water cooler and drinking fountain.


Canaletas has a sanitation system specifically developed for their water coolers and drinking fountains in order to achieve maximum hygienic safety.


Sanitation is a process of disinfecting the interior and exterior of the coolers and drinking fountains. The goal is to eliminate any microorganisms that may develop inside the water cooler (tanks and water connections),the water jets or taps for a higher quality water with more hygienic safety for the consumer.


It is mandatory for members of the European Water Coolers and Drinking fountains Associations that look after quality and safety of products supplied to end users.
Under these rules, water coolers and drinking fountains have to be sanitized on a regular basis and through a system whose effectiveness has been certified, although no norm or European directive forced to perform.

Sanitary System Canaletas CANVAP

Canaletas has been a pioneering company in Europe in developing a process which gives effective sanitation, quickly and safely. CANVAP sanitation system is done by steam, so that within seconds the temperature reaches 85 °C inside the water coolers and drinking fountains and they are disinfected in a few minutes. It is performed by technicians who follow the procedure set out in the sanitation protocol.

Canaletas CANVAP Certification System

The laboratory of Dr. Oliver Rodes (specializing in water analysis) has conducted extensive tests that verify the effectiveness of CANVAP sanitation system and has worked with Canaletas in the development of a sanitation protocol.
