This small cordless ceramic pet drinking fountain, glazed in layers of "Iron" and
"Seawead", with a bubbler spout and a cat decor glazed in "Iron", filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. The pet can drink out of the lid or lick water directly out of the bubblers stream.
This fountain has a battery compartment attached to the bowl.
This compartment can be equipped with either a
D-cell holder (holds 3 or 4 alkaline batteries or 4 NiMH 10.000mAh
rechargeable batteries) or a USB Li-Ion battery. The pump runs
continuously for approx. 5 to 6 days with alkaline D-cells,
approx. 3 days with rechargeable NiMH D-cells and 2 to 4 days
depending on the type of USB Li-Ion battery used. The
fountain comes with either a D-cell holder or an adapter for a
USB battery (your choice.) Any of the USB batteries we've tested fits in the compartment. Batteries are not included and must be
purchased separately (we provide recommendations on types/sources.)
This fountain can also be plugged in using a low voltage power
transformer or a USB battery charger (not included); in this case,
without the battery.
Our fountains have three filters. The first filter is an easy to
clean stainless steel mesh placed in the backflow opening to catch
larger debris like hair and food. The second filter is a foam filter
inside the pump, keeping the pump cleaner longer. For the third
filter, you have your choice of housing for the Drinkwell 360 filter
and one cartridge or Ebi’s refillable Bio Filter with one filter
media bag and charcoal fill. The Drinkwell is easier since you just
pop one cartridge out and another in; the Bio Filter is much more
economical since you fill it with course grade aquarium charcoal,
which costs less than $10 a year to refill.
The 1st filter - the
mesh filter - can be secured if your cats decide to play with it.
The 2nd and 3rd filters are well hidden in the bowl, easy to reach
for you but not your pet - and simple to change.
