You know the feeling, you’re walking through the hallway or sitting in class and all of a sudden you’re dying of thirst. But where do you go? Where is the best place to get cool, refreshing water around Buena? Wonder no more, because I will be ranking Buena’s water fountains in 6 categories: aesthetics, cleanliness, convenience, coolness, pressure, and taste.

 

First Floor

Cafeteria Bathroom Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 8/10

Cleanliness: 4/10

Convenience: 7/10

Water Coolness: 7/10

Pressure: 7/10

Taste: 9/10

Total: 42/60

The turquoise walls provide a different atmosphere when taking a drink of water, and feels like it has the best tasting water in all the fountains. Pretty nice (despite the Cheetos).

 

Back Hallway Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 4/10

Cleanliness: 9/10

Convenience: 5/10

Water Coolness: 6/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 5/10

Total: 35/60

I didn’t even know this water fountain existed until I began this ranking, so maybe that’s why it was pretty clean.

 

1100 Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 3/10

Cleanliness: 4/10

Convenience: 4/10

Water Coolness: 6/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 5/10

Total: 28/60

Long story short, this one sucks.

 

1200 Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 6/10

Cleanliness: 8/10

Convenience: 7/10

Water Coolness: 7/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 7/10

Total: 41/60

This fountain is pretty convenient unless you’re upstairs, and is somehow clean often as well. Good contender.

 

1400 Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 5/10

Cleanliness: 7/10

Convenience: 7/10

Water Coolness: 7/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 6/10

Total: 38/60

This fountain had way too many crooked posters, but the water is a clean option in a rush around Buena.

 

Art/JROTC Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 3/10

Cleanliness: 5/10

Convenience: 4/10

Water Coolness: 5/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 5/10

Total: 28/60

This one is far away from most classrooms, and wouldn’t be worth the walk. Sad.

 

Second Floor

2100 Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 6/10

Cleanliness: 8/10

Convenience: 5/10

Water Coolness: 6/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 7/10

Total: 38/60

I will admit I’ve never used this fountain. It was so clean though, but is only really convenient if you’re in the direct area.

 

2300 Water Fountain

Aesthetics: 5/10

Cleanliness: 8/10

Convenience: 5/10

Water Coolness: 8/10

Pressure: 6/10

Taste: 8/10

Total: 40/60

This fountain is one of my daily stops in the morning due to the fact I pass it everyday. It is pretty boring though, unfortunately.

 

Final Ranking and Thoughts

  1. Cafeteria Bathroom Water Fountain
  2. 1200 Water Fountain
  3. 2300 Water Fountain
  4. 1400 Water Fountain and 2100 Water Fountain (TIE)
  5. Back Hallway Water Fountain
  6. 1100 Water Fountain and Art/JROTC Water Fountain (TIE)

The cafeteria bathroom water fountain has been found to be the greatest one at school, with the 1100 and Art/JROTC fountains to be the worst. You learn something new everyday.
