This medium sized ceramic cat drinking fountain with a cascade spout, filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. The cat can drink out of the jars, the cascading water or the lid itself.
This fountain's lid and battery compartment are secured with stainless steel pins making it impossible for even an extremely large and rambunctious cat to dismantle the fountain
or access any cable.
The fountain has a battery compartment attached to the bowl.
This compartment can be equipped with either one to three
D-cell holder (each holding 3 or 4 alkaline batteries or NiMH 10.000mAh
rechargeable batteries) or one to three USB Li-Ion batteries. The pump runs
continuously for up to two weeks with good alkaline D-cells,
approx. 3 days with 4 rechargeable NiMH D-cells and up to 10 days
depending on the type of USB Li-Ion battery used. The fountain comes
with either one D-cell holder or an adapter for one USB battery (your
choice.) As in all of our battery options, we do not supply the
batteries but provide tips on which batteries will work. The
batteries must be purchased separately from a reputable dealer.
Amazon is a good choice because it’s fairly easy to exchange/return
a battery that doesn’t work and since new choices are continually
becoming available, we cannot test them all. You MUST (and this is
important) be sure to keep the battery dry at all times by sealing
it into a good quality Ziplog bag. Our fountains are designed to
keep water away from the battery, but condensation etc. may occur,
requiring a tight seal around the battery to ensure it remains dry.
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 backflow opening with a stainless steel sieve to catch
larger debris like hair and food. The second filter is an optional foam filter
around 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.
The tubing we use to
connect pump with filter and the filter with the spout is an
antimicrobial beverage grade tubing.
The 2nd and 3rd filters are well hidden in the bowl, easy to reach
for you but not your pet - and simple to change.
This fountain is equipped with a quiet, safe low-voltage pump, which can be powered
either by battery or a wall power transformer.
Unlike plastic pet fountains that develop cracks, this handcrafted 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 5
parts - bowl, lid, lid insert, filter and pump -, enabling simple, thorough
