I'd also like to comment on repair. In my area these drinking water
fountains usually have a tap to open / close and regulate the flow.
This is not accessible to the citizens (you need a special key to open
them up). Usually there is not much change in this (a fountain with a
strong flow might keep this for months until someone maybe changes
it). You as an ordinary "customer" do generally not have a possibility
to tell whether there is something broken or whether the tap is

We could use the somehow established disused=yes/no for this.
