This small ceramic pet drinking fountain glazed in "jade" with a jar spout, glazed in "iron", filters and aerates continuously moving water
to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water.
The water rises to the top of the jar. There it builds a small pool before it spills into the lid, and from there through a pre-filter back into the
covered water reservoir. A safe low voltage pump presses the water through a charcoal
filter and back up, beginning the cycle anew. Kitty can drink out of the lid, the top of the
jar, or lick the falling water.
The fountain's bowl developed a small crack during the glaze fire. This has been filled with a non-toxic epoxy for drinking water systems; it's sealed, stable and there's a full year warranty on the ceramic parts of this fountain.
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.
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 fountain can be equipped with a small low voltage UV water sterilization lamp.
The tubing we use to
connect pump with filter and the filter with the spout is a
antimirobial beverage grade tubing.
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.
