About Drinking Water Fountains

Drinking water is essential for human life. While at home, it is readily accessible but when you are on the go it can be a challenge to find a clean source. One innovation that has made water more accessible is the drinking fountain. PlumbersStock carries a wide selection of commercial drinking fountains.

Elkay is an industry-leading brand and we offer wholesale prices on their products as well as Chicago and our entire stock of commercial plumbing supply.

Types of Drinking Water Fountains

Here at PlumbersStock.com, we carry a variety of discount drinking fountains, parts, and more. These can be used in any public setting such as businesses, schools, parks, or simple work establishments. Some customers install them in their homes. There are a variety of options and configurations available, which include:

  • The wall-mounted dual station fountain is a popular choice. It is attached to the wall sitting side by side with one station set up higher than the other. This makes it easily accessible to all as it meets the ADA requirements for wheelchair accessibility. This wall-mounted option also is available with a single unit.
  • Another option is the floor-mounted drinking fountain. This one simply hooks into the plumbing line through the ground to provide water flow. These are also available in either the single or double fountain format.
  • There are drinking water fountains that are fully recessed into a wall. This is beneficial to those that do not have space for a unit to sit on the ground or stick out into walkways.

Most of these units come equipped with a bubbler (spout where the water comes out of), a basin, and the framework. The cooling units to chill the water if desired are usually sold separately. Water drinking fountains can be made of different materials. Here at PlumbersStock, we carry stainless steel, premium composite with a white finish, and options that contain no lead. You can also choose the color that best fits your needs.

What Unit is Right for You?

Some helpful tips that will make picking the right fountain easier are:

  • Will the location have high or low traffic?
  • Will your drinking water fountain need to meet ADA requirements?
  • Is the fountain going to be located outside or inside?
  • Do you only have space for a floor or wall-mounted unit?

Popular Options

Here are two of our most popular single unit water coolers:
