City Drunk (First in a Series)

Water Fountain outside gym on 2nd floor of Seattle Central Community College
Temperature: Colder than expected. But not cold enough. Score: 3
Stream: Medium, but leaning toward meek and low (had to press mouth against spout). Score: 3
Hum: Loud, strong rattle. Unfortunately, it’s deceptive: The boisterous encouragement turns out to be unrelated to the stream. Score: 5
Style: Mini-sink jutting from wall, steel basin, beige plastic front. Press-bar on front of fountain with hand print imprint. Generally, I like the hand print effect, but it only works if there’s some tension and spring in the press function. None here. Also, this fountain is drab looking. Score: 3
Brand: Howe ?
Comments: This fountain is located outside of a gym. This highlights the disappointing stats. Thankfully, though, the stream wasn’t quite as lifeless as most fountains of this style.
Final Score: 3.5 out of possible 10
