Bottled water at Mayo...why?

I have a water fountain by my desk and the spout is corroded and white and green and people still drink out of it. it also is really loud like a motor cycle on idle when anyone uses it.

Hi Wanda, I encourage you to report that to Facilities so they check it out (alert them to both of those issues). Thanks!

Not that this helps your noise problem, but the white and green buildup is probably just lime scale (minerals precipitated from the water) that buildup on faucets and pipes everywhere unless the water is softened. I realize it’s an eyesore but it is actually not harmful to drink from.
