Denver International Airport introduces innovative feature for travelers.

Do you bring your water bottle with you when you travel? If so, you now have a new feature when you fill it up at DIA.

Denver International Airport has introduced a new system that enables travelers to check the cleanliness of the water at certain water fill-up stations. The airport has a total of 114 water bottle-filling stations, 60 of which are now linked to the cloud.

Maintenance crews and travelers alike can access the status of the filter at each station. QR codes located at the top of each water bottle-filling station allow people to scan and view the filter status of that specific fountain.

This initiative is the result of a partnership with the nonprofit research institute RTI International. According to a press release from the institute, the RTI Aquantix, software solution monitors real-time water use from its water fountains and bottle filling stations, and notifies facility staff when filters need to be replaced. Judd Larson, a research chemical engineer at RTI and co-developer of the project, stated that the system eliminates guesswork and saves time and money. Unlike the previous red, yellow, and green light system, the new system tracks the filters at each water bottle-filling station through cloud-connected sensors.

The compiled data enables maintenance teams to anticipate when filters will expire, plan efficient replacement schedules, and document filter changes, thereby enhancing the transparency and efficiency of filter maintenance.

The airport intends to extend this feature to the remaining stations within the next year.
