Filtrine’s popular Model B103 Water Bottle Filling Station Today
Over the past 90+ years, Filtrine has continued to promote the water bottle filler station (alongside our traditional drinking fountains) as an alternative to wasteful disposable water bottles. It also known as a Hydration Station. (For more on the history of the first water bottle filler station see The Invention, Evolution and History of the First Water Bottle Filling Station post.)
In the 1970s, the water bottle filling station that we see today really started to take shape as the Model B103. It is also known as a Hydration Station. This stainless steel in-wall version of the original Model 101 from the ’20s represented a significant step forward in drinking water fixture design, and was considerably ahead of its time. Since then, the B103 has undergone many redesigns.

As the Filtrine engineers back in 1920 predicted, the water glass/bottle filling station is making a significant impact on cutting down on the use of disposable water bottles. Hundreds of colleges/universities, office buildings, gyms, and municipal buildings have started installing water bottle fillers as a way to solve “the disposal drinking water bottle problem” that threatens to overwhelm the environment.
Moving forward, Filtrine continually accesses, refines and develops the design of the Filtrine Model B103, maintaining our 100+ year tradition as the top innovator in the drinking water industry.
