DRINKING WATER PROJECT PROFILE: FILTRINE'S BRONZE FOUNTAINS FOUND AT MANY LDS TEMPLES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) Selects Filtrine’s Bronze Drinking Fountains for Their Temples
Body

Locations
US LDS temples in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Missouri, Texas and Utah; overseas LDS temples in France, Mexico, and Peru

Challenge
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) members believe their “temple is a peaceful, sacred place, set apart from the cares and turmoil of the world. All areas of the temple are beautifully and carefully maintained to preserve a spirit of reverence.” The owners of these temples decided that their drinking water fountains should match the look and feel of the worship spaces. Because they preferred the look of bronze, they asked their architects and engineers to specify Filtrine drinking water equipment since they are the leading manufacturer of bronze drinking fountains in the world. 

Solution
The next step was to select the appropriate drinking fountain models for each temple. Fortunately Filtrine has a wide variety of models and options to suit any space. The most common finish specified for the temples’ drinking fountains was the satin bronze, but for several temples the designers felt the statuary or oil rubbed bronze finish was the most appropriate. They decided on the Model 107-14 bowl design for all the temples and picked both the high-low and single versions. Some interiors lent themselves to matching cover plates and other fountains were mounted behind the wall. If they needed an access panel for access to the plumbing, they asked for the Model 107-14-HL-1205 which includes a hinged door. For the applications that needed a remote drinking water chiller/purifier, they had their choice of six Filtrine free-standing chiller/purifier models. In Chile, the LDS temple needed a Model M-2-CIA which is a non-recirculating cabinet insert chiller that is concealed either in-cabinet or behind the wall. This unit serves one fountain. The Les Chesnay LDS temple in France selected two Model ES-RFC-FS central chiller/purifiers to serve cool filtered water to 13 Filtrine drinking fountains. For the Ogden, Utah LDS temple, they installed the Model ES-100-RCFA air cooled central chiller to serve 20 drinking fountains.
