Haws concrete pedestal drinking fountains, like the 3177, use a patented push-button stainless steel valve assembly (Pat.# 6,981,692) allowing for front access stream adjustment as well as cartridge and strainer access. The angled barrier-free design of the 3177 allows the square pedestal to be placed securely in multiple locations. Equipped with vandal resistant components, this fountain is not easily disrupted, quickly discouraging the worst of vandals.
