Every day, Americans collectively consume a staggering 50 million plastic water bottles. What's even more concerning is that it takes over 17 million barrels of oil to produce these plastic bottles, as most plastics are derived from petroleum. To put this into perspective, that's enough energy to fuel more than a million cars and power nearly 200,000 homes each year. And let's not forget the additional energy required to transport plastic bottles from one corner of the country to another.
But there's an alternative solution that's gaining traction and making a significant impact – Bottle Fillers. These convenient Bottle Filling Stations are cropping up everywhere, from airports and schools to parks and commercial offices. They offer easy access to refreshing drinking water and serve as an ideal sustainable solution for a wide range of applications.
If you're considering a switch from bottled water and are in search of a cost-efficient, eco-friendly hydration solution, look no further.
Indoor and Outdoor Options for Adding a Bottle Filler to Existing Fountains
Model 1920: This versatile, wall-mounted bottle filler can be installed either independently or above an existing drinking fountain. The durable bottle filler is available in various finishes, including stainless steel, high-polished stainless, and a freeze-resistant version. Simply find the right mounting plate and back panel, attach the bottle filler, and you've successfully retrofitted your existing drinking fountain to include a bottle filler.
3690 & 3690 CONFIG WM: For outdoor settings, the vandal-resistant bottle filler attachment is designed to complement the Haws 3377 outdoor pedestal drinking fountain. It features a satin-finish stainless steel bracket, an ADA-compliant fountain bowl, and a painted galvanized steel pedestal extension. Like the Model 1920, the Model 3377BF also offers galvanized steel and freeze-resistant options.
