1 gallon per minute

Thirsty (and out of water), I stopped by a water fountain which – to my disappointment – didn’t work.

Fortunately, beside it was a second fountain that did.

I took a good drink from it, then filled up my water jug as well.

The stream was slow,
but consistent:

My estimate was around a gallon per minute.

Had this one been left on all day, as opposed to the other that couldn’t be turned on, it would produce 1440 gallons of water per day …

Or in more handy units:

About 34 forty two and a half gallon water barrels.

That’s four times the 6 water barrels I drink per year …

I’m just glad not to have to fill them up at the water fountain every time I’m thirsty.
