Elkay® outdoor bottle filling stations and drinking fountains offer attractive, long-lasting durability to withstand tough weather conditions. They are built for busy areas such as parks, pools, golf courses, and school and work campuses.
Convert outdoor bottle filling stations to hands-free units with this easy-to-install foot activation pedal. On playgrounds, educational campuses and recreational areas where health and safety are top of mind, this accessory offers the option to fill reusable water bottles without using the standard push button. Order with a new unit or retrofit an existing one.
300 Series stainless steel incorporates molybdenum, which significantly increases corrosion resistance. It is commonly used in many industrial applications involving processing chemicals, as well as high-saline environments such as coastal regions and outdoor areas where deicing salts are common.
Freeze-resistant units minimize the time incoming water spends in freezing temperatures. For pedestal installations, this is accomplished by installing the control valves underground below the frost line. Freeze-resistant fountains and bottle fillers drain the water from tubing above the frost line when the units are not in use. This action minimizes the chance of the water supply tubing freezing.
A traditional freeze valve system relies on the gravitational flow of water down through the supply tubes. It drains the water into a drainage field. If soil conditions do not allow for proper drainage, the ground water can back up into the valve area and prevent the valve drain system from working properly.
Elkay's sealed freeze valve system isolates the water removed from the upper plumbing lines. During operation, the sealed freeze valve pulls water down from above the frost line and stores it in an isolated chamber until the next drink cycle is started. At the start of the next cycle, an internal piston forces the stored water out into a dedicated drainage circuit above ground level. By totally isolating water supply circuits and valve systems, the sealed freeze valve system continues to function properly even if the water table level rises above the valve.
Cleaning procedures vary based on material. Please see our care and cleaning instructions for specifics.
Yes. Elkay’s outdoor foot pedal accessory provides the option for hands-free bottle filling activation on select outdoor bottle filling stations. It is easy to install and does not deactivate the traditional push button.
No. Freeze-resistant drinking fountain models require a specific push button and valve that are not yet compatible with this foot pedal.
The foot pedal attachment is made from Type 316 stainless steel and has a powder-coated exterior to withstand the elements, like our outdoor bottle filling stations.
The foot pedal adds a hands-free activation option for the bottle filler only. All push buttons will continue to function as normal.
No. The foot pedal accessory must be ordered separately as an add on and connected upon bottle filling station installation or attached to an existing compatible model.
Yes. This is a hands-free activation optional accessory that can be retrofitted to new and existing, outdoor, free-standing, tubular bottle filling station models. See compatibility guide for details.
Yes. The foot pedal will work in conjunction with your hose bib. We suggest installing the hose bib on the top panel and foot pedal on the bottom panel on models that have two panels.
