This fountain can be found in Piața Unirii, between the Romano-Catholic cathedral and the Sfintei Treimi statue. The town being placed in a marshland area, the main preoccupation of the town councilors was the realization of a deep drilling to obtain drinking water, neutralizing thus the epidemics that decimated the population in that time. The contract was concluded with Seidl Gyula, the owner of a car factory, expert in drillings. In 1890 his men realized a drilling of 406m deep. At the beginning it was an artesian drilling, the water flowed afield and today it is pumped out. The aspect of the fountain also changed several times from a hut till its present aspect. The water is termomineral, 24, 5 C degree, bicarbonate, sodium, poorly fizzy, hypotonic and hypothermal.
