Water Fountains

Water fountains are generally not accepted to demonstrate compliance with Hea 04 on the basis that a typical water fountain (of the type which projects a jet of water upwards towards a user’s mouth) does not allow a water bottle to be filled, and therefore does not encourage adequate fluid intake.

However, if it can be demonstrated that aΒ particular type of water fountain is specified that addresses the issues of bottle filling, such as a water fountain with an additional bottle-filler, this can be considered acceptable.
