What Is The WaterPlay Sensory Station?

Water is a stress reliever for both children and adults and the WaterPlay Sensory Station is a uniquely designed “Sensory Station” that allows individuals to experience the sensory feeling of continuously moving water, similar to a faucet in a house hold sink.

Why Should I Buy This Product?

It eliminates three major problems with children using sinks in order to receive water sensory stimulation. You no longer need to be concerned that hot water will be used, leading to scalding or burns. There is no potential for accidentally flooding the house.  Finally, avoiding the high cost of water bills from continuous access to running water.

What Is Unique About The Design?

The design has a large basin, designed to allow an adult sized user to place both hands in the active area. It has an inline secured pump with no direct access by user. The water flow is sufficient to provide sensory response similar to the flow from a standard water faucet. Unit is easy to disassemble and be cleaned by the teacher or parent.

What Happens If Additional Water Is Added?

The reservoir tray will overflow onto the base of the system.  There are numerous drain holes in the base which will allow excess water to drain to the outside of the unit.  It is recommended that a drying matt or towel be used under the system to absorb excess water that may be added to unit while in operation.

What Happens If Water Is Removed While The Pump Is Operating?

The pump will continue to try and pump until the power is turned off.

How Do I Clean The System?

The system can be thoroughly cleaned by first removing and cleaning the reservoir.  Then removing the top assembly, all internal surfaces can be wiped down using a kitchen towel or paper towels.  

How Often Do I Need To Thoroughly Clean The System?

It is recommended that the water be completely drained at the end of every day. For a thourough cleaning we recommend once a month. Removing the top assembly and wiping the surfaces with a disinfecting wipe, such as Lysol or Clorox. Cleaning of the connecting tubing is performed by running a vingar and water solution (50/50) through the system for 5 minutes, replace with clean water and begin to use.  Any time liquids other than water have been introduced to the reservoir, it is recommended that the system be opened and cleaned thoroughly.
