Sacrament Cup Automatic Filler

Postby Brewhaha » Sun Sep 15, 2013 9:44 am

Many years ago I remember using an automatic filler that was attached to the faucet to fill sacrament cups. I don't know if it was a commercial product or homemade. Has anyone seen one of these? Are they available to purchase anywhere?

We had one in our ward in Southern California in the early 1980s. I never saw another one since then. As I recall, it was more trouble to set it up than to simply hold/move the top part of the tray under a normal tap.

Maybe my memories (which also date back to the 80's) are inaccurate but I recall it being very nice. As it is now, the teachers run the cups under th sink making a mess and, most often, way underfilling the cups.

I think it just comes down to a bit of training. (Great Teacher Quorum activity!) When I was a Teacher, the standard practice was to fill the cups under the faucet with med-low pressure (to avoid the obvious back-splash) until they were nearly full. Then the trick was to tip the tray about 30°, which uniformly emptied them down to an acceptable level, then wipe off the outside of the tray. Piece of cake.
