This small sized, ceramic pet drinking fountain with a
detached battery compartment, filters and aerates continuously
moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. The
pet can drink out of the lid, the shell or lick water directly out
of the stream.
This fountain's lid is secured with stainless steal pins making
it impossible for even an extremely large and rambunctious cat to
dismantle the fountain. Add to this a pinned cover for the backflow
area and you have a dismantle-proof cat fountain.
The fountain has a battery compartment detached from the bowl.
This compartment can be equipped with either a
D-cell holder (holds 4 or 8 alkaline batteries or NiMH 10.000mAh
rechargeable batteries) or one or two 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 and number of USB Li-Ion batteries used. The
fountain comes with either a D-cell holder or an adapter for one
USB battery (your choice.) 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 compartment.
Batteries we have tested and fit into the battery compartment:
|Anker Powercore 13000
||1 to 3
||1 or 2
||1 or 2
|Anker Astro E7
||1 or 2
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 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 a
antimicrobial beverage grade tubing.
If you’d like a low voltage (12 volt) UV sanitizing lamp in addition, that possible too,
but it doesn't work with battery power it needs a low voltage wall
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.
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 4
parts - bowl, lid, filter and pump -, enabling simple, thorough
