Long Description:

A water pump interesting because unlike traditional pumps, it has a crank mechanism on the top.

Bayard standpipes are fountains made by Bayard. These are curiosities of public places, especially Lyon and Grenoble.

The Bayard company patented the mechanism of the turnstile fountain in 1901 in Lyon.

The mechanism consists of two flyweights driven by the centrifugal force of the steering wheel that raises the valve of the drinking water system. The pressure of these pipes thus increases the water at the tap.

The distributed water is universally drinkable.

Une pompe à eau intéressante car contrairement aux pompes traditionnelles, elle possède un mécanisme à manivelle sur le dessus.

Les bornes-fontaines Bayard sont des appareils de fontainerie fabriqués par l'entreprise Bayard. Ce sont des curiosités des lieux publics, en particulier lyonnais et grenoblois.

La société Bayard breveta le mécanisme de la fontaine à tourniquet en 1901 à Lyon.

Le mécanisme est constitué de deux masselottes entrainées par la force centrifuge du volant qui soulève le clapet du réseau d'eau potable. La pression de ces canalisations fait ainsi monter l'eau au robinet.

L'eau distribuée est universellement potable.
