for the drinking fountains in my area seeing there is no water does indeed justify to put it on disused, while it’s in theory just a tap that is closed it isn’t something that is done on a frequent basis and from experience it is likely it will remain like this for months and maybe years or forever.
For decorative fountains the situation is different here because they are usually only turned off for maintenance/damages and not for no apparent reason (this depends on the context, in Berlin for example they turned fountains off to save money, at least this was the situation 10years ago and outside the highlight tourist areas). Unless a decorative fountain is visibly and seriously damaged I wouldn’t set it to disused here, even if I saw it without water.

I also encourage everybody to use the fountain subtag, by the way.
