medium cordless ceramic pet drinking fountain with a large lid and
flower spout, filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. The pet can drink out of the lid,
the open flower or lick water directly out of the water stream
falling from the flower.
The fountain can be used with or
without the battery underneath, using a low voltage wall power plug.
The fountain has a battery compartment underneath the bowl.
This compartment can be equipped with either a
D-cell holder (holds 4 alkaline batteries or NiMH 10.000mAh
rechargeable batteries) or one smaller USB Li-Ion battery. The pump runs
continuously for up to one week with good alkaline D-cells,
approx. 3 days with 4 rechargeable NiMH D-cells and up 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 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 Ziplock 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.
Batteries we have tested and fit into the battery compartment:

This fountain has two filters. The first filter is a foam pad around
the pump, keeping the pump cleaner longer. For the second
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 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
