Pet drinking fountain with bubble spout and internal vertical battery
fountain. Indoor or outdoor (no frost).
Recirculating pump and multi filter system included and pre-assembled.
Measurements: bowl height=7"(18cm), maximum diameter=10.2"x8.7(26x22cm), height
designed cordless ceramic pet drinking fountain with a bubbler spout and internal
vertical battery compartment, filters and aerates continuously moving water
to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water.
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 or lick the water
streaming out of the bubbler.
This fountain has a vertical battery compartment. A compartment of this
type is smaller than the horizontal compartment and restricts the type
and number of batteries that can be used (see below).
Our fountains have three filters. The first filter is an easy to clean
backflow opening with small holes 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, Ebi’s
refillable Bio Filter with one filter media bag and charcoal fill or our
new Glass-jar Filter. The Drinkwell is easier since you just pop one
cartridge out and another in; the Bio and Glass-jar Filter are much more
economical since you fill it with course grade aquarium charcoal pellets.
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, back-flow insert, filter and pump -,
enabling simple, thorough cleaning.
The fountain has a battery compartment attached to 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 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 7 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 Ziploc 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/battery compartment. You can use 6.5 inch long USB batteries with
a side USB2 plug or 6 inch long batteries with a top USB2 plug.
