water fountain

Water is the best way of keeping yourself hydrated. For that purpose, many public places have installed water fountains as courtesy.

Do you have any qualms about drinking or filling up your bottles at these public fountains?

I think on the whole they are fine, we don't know what has happened to that fountain, since we got there....but I guess you can always splash water around and clean it down....There is no sure way to know, is there?
I wouldn't really want to use one, unless it was very much needed.
Usually I carry around a water bottle. But if I'm really thirsty and there is a drinking fountain and it doesn't look dirty (but how could you tell for sure), then I will drink from one. It is the exception for me though.
Definitely NOT!

People put their mouths around faucet, & they've what diseases?
The overflow tray, those in public parks, at least, get used as a urinal by both genders, Yuk!

I always carry one bottle of frozen water, & another in car boot, as a spare. That way I know the water's provenance!

IF I need more than those out, I'll buy some bottled water!
Yes - but not all drinking fountains. The one at our sports complex is the one I use when I am very very thirsty!
Only if i'm thirsty and have no water bottle.
I use them, but I always wonder what exactly went into my body!! Not too fond of them.
Sometimes, and only on a hot day.
I do at university, I drink too much there!
I only ever use water fountains for my dog. I do not like the taste of tap water in my city. It's so full of chemicals. I carry a flask of filtered water with lemon juice in it when I go out
Definitely NOT - what do you think those fountains are used for on Friday and Saturday nights by roaming youths etc.
I have seen similar groups doing the same to public barbecues too - so I never, ever use them. Makes me shudder when I see fmailies feeding little toddlers off them and hoisting toddlers up to drink out of the water fountains - YUK
Never. We had it drummed into us as school kids that the water troughs/bubblers/fountains were a seething mass of dreaded hepatitis. We had water troughs with long rows of taps that had big bell like bottoms with prongs protruding. Hideous things. *lightning bolt* I bet this is why I have never been a water drinker. It is a real effort for me to drink water. It is tea, tea, tea all the way for me.

Yes, sorry to scare you all, but my friend & I have a sip from 2 of them, every day we walk together for the 3k's around where we live.
