A bubbler is a common term used mainly in the Midwest region of the United States, referring to drinking fountains.
I believe that the slang became popular due to the creation of a drinking fountain that bubbled water out in a different manner than a traditional drinking fountain, although I do not know exactly which way this was.
It may be nothing, but the name Ford comes into my mind when I say this.

Wisconsin citizens' use of this word, and other abnormal slangs led to a study into how Wisconsinites speak in 2005 or 06.
Student- "Can I go get a drink from the bubbler?"

This is my favorite smoking device mainly because its portable, easy to hide, and it fits in your pocket! This unique smoking device has a small un-detatchable bowl on the top, with a stem sticking out of the side. It workes like a bong, in the fact that it filters the smoke with water, but instead of a removable bowl, it has a carb.(rush hole) These magical objects come in glass,wood,and plastic. Mainly used to smoke weed, these can also be used for tabacco. They range from 10 to 50 dollars

One of those things found in public places (usually near rest rooms) that has a mini faucet and drain. People often spit, throw trash in and drink water out of these things.
