In 1896, Halsey W. Taylor lost his father to
typhoid fever caused by contaminated water. Years later,
as a plant superintendent for the Packard Motor Car
Company, Taylor noticed dysentery spreading quickly
through the workers, and again suspected drinking water.
These personal experiences inspired Halsey W. Taylor
to dedicate his life to providing a safe drink of water
in public places. In 1912 he developed the Puritan Sanitary
Fountain and began producing it at the original
manufacturing site in Warren, Ohio.
||The era soon brought the dawn of World War 1,
and sanitary drinking water in
over crowded army camps was a major problem.
Concerned, Halsey Taylor had an idea for a bubbler
that would provide a safer drink, resulting in the
development of the historic Double Bubbler which
remains one of the industry's most important
innovations ever. It projects two separate streams
that converge to form an abundant pyramid of water
at the apex of the stream, for a fuller, more
satisfying drink. The Double Bubbler was the
first of many innovations that helped to make Halsey
Taylor the drinking fountain and water cooler of
choice for nearly a century.
