Subject: Just Curious
While I was studying
this week, an interesting question was brought to surface
. (It is my theory that many interesting questions are thought up when there are high levels of stress
, and deadline
But let me get to my point
... Why do drinking fountains
have 2 holes for the water to come out of?
I realize that the sales department
is not quite the appropriate place to ask such a question, but it's the only address I've found on short notice, and I figure you could relay it on to appropriate people.
Thank you for any consideration or response you give to this e-mail.
(And by the way, our dorm
's drinking fountain
is one of yours and has served us well and faithfully... just thought you'd like to know.)

Halsey Taylor has been satisfying thirsts since 1912. We are known foremost for our exclusive
which has two separate streams of water that converge at the apex
of the arc
to provide an abundant pyramid
. This simply forms a fuller, more satisfying drink
for the user. The flow rate is the same with two streams of water or one
; however, when the two streams arc together it produces a flatter effect also making it easier for a person to drink from as well
as providing a bigger mouthful of water.
Glad Halsey Taylor has served you well over the years. Thank you
for your kind comment
