the drinking fountain
q: where did you purchase your drinking fountain?
a: the fountain is the Kohler K-5264-0 White Millbrooke Drinking Fountain purchased online at www.needplumbingsupplies.com
q: is it a water mess? do the kids always mess around with it?
a: yes, no, not really. :) yes, you will get water drips on the floor from children racing in to get a drink, racing away while still swallowing the water...while its dripping halfway down their little faces :). but this is why we carried the slate floor all the way through that area. it just absorbs or if it dries up it blends in.
the messing/playing with the water...mostly its the 2-3 year old age range children but even then they're just turning it on and off. i have had NO regrets with this installation of an interior drinking fountain. oh, the plumber will adjust the flow so it doesn't shoot out onto the wall :)
q: is it hooked up to cold water or do you have a chiller?
a: pretty sure its just to the cold water since i don't know what a chiller is! :) it comes out cool though...not icy cold.
