History behind water fountains

Can you imagine life without water fountains. Think about all the places they are: Schools, parks, restaurants, near bathrooms, health clubs, sporting arenas, airports, office buildings, every store almost in the county has a water fountain. The water fountain was invented in the early 1900’s by two guys named Halsey Willard Taylor and Luther Haws. The oldest fountains took two or even three men to carry. The styles changed throughout time as well. The first water fountains were heavy and looked bulky. As time went on hey had to change cause schools needed all the room possible in the hallways. So they eventually created one’s that were wall mounted. Water fountains aren’t just convenient but are necessary. Make sure before installing a water fountain you have all the plumbing and electrical able to be brought to that spot. Today in many commercial building you need two water fountains next to each other at different heights for city code.
