The Natura 24/Aquarius 1.80 system dispenses chilled sparkling or still water, as well as room temperature still water. With a three-step filtration process, Natura gets rid of chlorine and pollutants completely while serving water three times faster than a bar gun. The Natura D4/Aquarius 1.8 eliminates the need for pre-filling water decanters, frees wait and bar staff from dispensing water, and creates refrigerator space previously taken up by water needing to be chilled.
