Water Fountain on Shabbat


Can one drink from a water fountain on shabbat?



  1. A water fountain that is mechanically operated and the button itself isn’t electric may be used on Shabbat as long as the motor for the compressor to cool the water isn’t triggered when one is using it. The amount of water one can remove in one time without triggering the motor depends on the water fountain.
