The water spills out of the frog's mouth, cascades down 3 flowers
into a flat bowl and from there through a foam filter back into the
cone. The low voltage pump presses the water through a charcoal
filter up through the frog's mouth and the cycle begins anew. The pet
has many possibilities for drinking: the water streaming from the
frog's mouth, the water standing in or streaming from the flowers, or licking water
out of the lower flat bowl.
The price reflects the fact that
there are small repaired cracks at the top of the cone. This does
not effect the fountain's function in any way.
Our fountains have two filters. The first filter is an easy to clean
stainless steel mesh (placed in the backflow opening) that catches
hair, food, etc, preventing the pump from clogging. The second
filter is a Drinkwell filter with a fine polyester pad and
granulated carbon to catch the finer particles. The filter is well
hidden in the bowl, easy to reach for you but not the pet - and
simple to change.
We also offer the *Forever Filter* or "Ebi's Bio Filter". These are reusable filters. When it's time to change the filter, simply empty and rinse the canister, add fresh activated carbon, and return it to the fountain.
Our fountains come with different pump options:
- our standard pump (included): a low voltage submersible 55 g/h DC pump with mini integral transformer (only about the power of 2 to 4 D-cells is going from your power socket to the fountain, so even if your pet were to chew through the cable, he/she would not be hurt),
- our standard pump with a battery pack (4 x AA or 4 x D-cells),
- a 92 g/h outdoor 110 volt AC-pump with 3 prong cable to use with a GFCI.
Unlike plastic pet fountains that develop cracks, this drinking fountain is made of durable, nonporous dinnerware-safe glazed stoneware. Clay and glazes are certified non-toxic and made in the USA. Ceramic resists bacteria, commonly found on porous plastic surfaces. The fountain has just 4 parts - bowl, lid, filter and pump -, enabling simple, thorough cleaning.
