Suggests refurbishment of the many disused public fountains (estimated at up to 2000 in the UK) can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of creating new water displays.

Concludes that programmed maintenance, and the establishment of specific maintenance responsibility, is crucial for public display fountain operation.
