"Ebi" Ceramic Cat and Dog Drinking Fountains

Introduction to EBI ceramic pet drinking fountains


Water Fountain Features

We do water fountains like nobody else! EBI ceramic cat drinking fountains are handmade in the USA with certified safe materials, antimicrobial tubing and low voltage UV lamps for water disinfection. The unique designs attract cats, encouraging them to drink more water. Your custom EBI can be dismantle-proof for cats who have taken apart every pet drinking fountain you've ever bought and “scoop”-proof for cats who make a waterpark out of other water fountains. We offer cordless battery operated fountains, pet drinking fountains with a battery backup or UPS for power outages, concepts with an auto-refill system or RV fountains usable in a moving vehicle. Combine any spout, lid and bowl design we offer to create your individual fountain and have it glazed in the colors you like. We specialize in custom fountains but you'll find some water fountains in stock as well.
 
Happy and Macchia drinking from their EBI cat drinking fountain Features that makes EBI cat drinking fountains better.

1. Ceramic pet fountains that have holes for cords or tubes can leak after a few months. Dishwashers and cleaning methods can often cause the materials used to seal the hole, such as silicon or glues, to fail resulting in leaks. The bowls of ceramic EBI fountains do not have any holes and therefore cannot leak.

2. Pumps with grounded electrical cords (three prongs) plugged into an outlet with class A GFCIs (6mA) will only protect between line and ground but not between line and neutral. That's why your pet could still be harmed if he/she chews through such a cable. We use only safe low-voltage aquarium pumps. Since the low-voltage transformer plugs directly into your outlet, only about the power of 2 to 4 AA or D-cells is going along the power cord to your pump (so much too low of a voltage to hurt kitty even if he/she chews through the cord). And these pumps, unlike the "powerful pumps" competitors tout, will not heat up the water in your fountain.

3. The only effective charcoal filter is an inline filter. Charcoal filters that simply sit inside a water container are worthless and ineffective. We use inline charcoal filters with up to 10 times the amount of charcoal that competitor's filters contain.

4. Studies have documented that cats will drink much more water when the water level is near the top of the container. Cats don't like to put their head into a container that reduces their peripheral vision, which is a valuable evolutionary adaptation to protect a cat from predators while the cat is drinking. The EBI fountain is the only pet fountain that has a lid from which the cat can drink at a constant easily accessable level and a large water reservoir underneath. You can even connect an Ebi fountain to your bottled water dispenser (e.g. Crock, Primo, New Wave, etc.) to provide up to 7 gallons of pure drinking water (2 gallon capacity water dispenser plus up to 5 gallon drinking water bottle).

5. Our fountains can be made "mischievous pet safe" like no other fountain can. See our "Coon" fountain as an example.   click for more info.

6. Any of our fountains can be battery operated using a battery that our pump plugs into.   click for more info.

7. We've been equipping all of our pet drinking fountains with tubing that, in addition to our usual beverage grade tubing, is also antimicrobial thanks to embedded silver. For more information see: The tubing we use

8. We're offering a filter combination with a small (low-voltage) germicidal UV lamp inside to keep your kitties' water cleaner even longer! Click to see: Our germicidal UV-Bio filter unit. Or you place the germicidal UV lamp directly into your covered water bowl besides your normal filter system.

The bottom line is that our EBI pet drinking fountains are engineered for health, safety, durability and to be a beautiful addition to your home.
