MRO Recent Project: Water Fountain with Bottle Fill at Travis Air Force Base

water fountain with water bottle fill

Travis Air Force Base was seeking a solution to improve its water fountains for service members, staff and visitors. Most of the existing fountains were old and difficult to fill a reusable water bottle. First Vanguard provided a free consultative visit to determine the state of the existing fountains and need for upgrades.

The project entailed:

  1. Replacing existing fountains with newer models that included a bottle filling station.

  2. Upgrading the fountains that were in good shape with a water filter kit and water bottle station adapter.

First Vanguard was able to source, purchase, plumb and install both types fountains, providing a full-scale solution to meet the needs of the client and save them money in the process.

This hybrid solution of new and upgraded fountains was a one-stop-shop solution available through First Vanguard. Our aim is to partner with our customers to provide complete solutions that save time and money. This partnership with Travis Air Force Base gave their service members a better experience and helps reduce plastic bottle waste in the environment.
