The Haws 3060FR round pedestal-mounted, gray aggregate-finish reinforced concrete drinking fountain is adaptable for outdoor installation where the temperature can fall below freezing. The bowl is made of high-polished stainless steel for resistance to corrosion, and the pedestal is made of reinforced concrete for strength and corrosion resistance. The chrome-plated push button is activated with less than 5lb. of pressure. The shielded bubbler head is made of chrome-plated forged brass for resistance to corrosion and vandalism, and it provides an even laminar stream flow to reduce splashing. A concrete extension hood provides a partial enclosure to help protect the bubbler head from damage. The waste strainer is made of chrome-plated brass for corrosion resistance, and it has a coated-steel hold-down bracket and steel 1-1/4" OD (outside diameter) tailpiece. A pneumatic valve system (sold separately) placed in the ground below the frost line allows the fountain to operate in freezing conditions. This pedestal-mounted drinking fountain complies with California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953-2006), and meets National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)/American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standard 61 and the federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) regulations for lead-free waterways. It also has a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group certification.
This drinking fountain requires a water pressure between 30 and 90 pounds per square inch (psi) and a supply line size of 1/2" OD for operation. For complete drinking fountain dimensions, please refer to the manufacturer installation drawing.
Drinking fountains produce a stream of water for drinking and are usually in public places. They typically consist of a metal nozzle called a bubbler head that provides an even stream of drinking water, a metal bowl to collect and drain water, a stream control mechanism such as a push button, and a pedestal or wall-mounted support that holds these components at an accessible height. Drinking fountains that provide a refrigerated water stream are called water coolers. Public fountains are subject to federal regulations for accessibility by disabled persons and various government health standards.
Haws Corporation manufactures drinking fountains, electric water coolers, hydration stations, and emergency equipment. The company, founded in 1906 and is headquartered in Sparks, NV, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.
