Several councils are turning off drinking bubblers in public areas such as parks as part of the measures initiated in the interest of public health and safety to prevent transmission of the Covid-19 virus.

Urban Fountains and Furniture supports councils in their endeavour to protect the health and wellbeing of the general public during the pandemic. However, since daily exercise and dog-walking are still actively encouraged with due consideration to social distancing rules, Urban believes that taps should be kept working to fill dog bowls and water bottles for personal hydration in the absence of a working bubbler.

All Urban fountains with optional tap and dog bowl and bottle refill are designed to isolate the water supply internally and stop the flow of water to the bubbler while preserving the flow to the tap or bottle refill. There is no need to switch off the water to the entire fountain.

Urban offers water line plugs free of charge along with simple instructions on making these temporary changes within the fountain.

Please contact Urban with your requirement, and the plugs will be shipped to you overnight.

Consult with Urban for advice and support regarding their fountains and furniture cleaning/ maintenance during this time.
