VIII.4.15 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 1, impluvium in atrium. Looking east across the south side. According to Jashemski, this house was one of many which, after the introduction of the aqueduct, had a fountain in the atrium. 
Between the two table supports that stood at the edge of the impluvium there was a round opening which contained the bronze key. This controlled the jet in the middle of the impluvium.
