    Here is one that I put in my front yard.
    As for a drain all I have is a shallow dry well.
    In other words I dug down a couple of feet with a post hole digger and dumped some gravel in.
    I used several T-Post to stablize it and then set a short length of 8" clay pipe over that, filled the hole thing with gravel and have been enjoying watching people stop by and have a drink from my front yard for over ten years...

    I love it. Michael

      Sorry, that thing won't last a month on a playground. Kids are like monkeys and will climb all over it. At the very least get the concrete pedestal one or the #4880FR heavy cast iron model. Bolt it down good to a solid concrete base not on blacktop. Keep an extra button repair kit on hand because the kids will wear that one out before the warranty is up. Drain it into a 5' deep drywell. Have a curbcock shutoff valve for winter.
