It’s empty in here!
Bought this after reading reviews..advice don't fill bottle full as makes it heavy when changing it .less than half will do as it doesn't leak so water last longer .best to nip to DIY shop (like I did) so get spring with clips to hold it bettet . Other than than that brilliant bottle. my 6 guinea-pigs drink out of it with no problems and no leaks so don't make fleece soggy. I put pot bowl underneath just so water falls in to it when taking it off to change rather than it going on fleece.
The only water dispenser my rabbits will use,they dont struggle for water like the glass/ball dispensers. However i ordered 4 last time & 2 of them had a hairline crack right down the middle & spilt water everywhere. The ones that actually do work, are perfect. The only reason this isnt getting a 5 dstart review is because hakf of them were delivered cracked/broken.
No more nasty teeth scraping and struggle for guineas to get enough water BUT no connecter to cage (buy bungee), water has to be replaced daily as piggies drink whilst eating (it seems) and is chore to move. Bottle needs to screw into dish so no more big spills, dish needs to be deeper (to avoid spillage), should fill from top, wish smaller bottles on offer as is unwieldy esp as doesn't connect to dish so accidents often occur when filling/removing to clean.
Great bottle which the rabbits love. The green spout fixes into the vertical spars of the cage, similar to a bird cage water bottle. I use it in horizontal bars of my rabbits cage. Both ways need an extra support to hold the bottle. I have used string (which won't last long, I know!) I plan to use garden cable ties or a small bungee cord to do this. As I said, excellent bottle, rabbits love it. Only four stars due to the fact I needed to get an additional support of my own. Please supply in future, Zooplus!
Both my rabbits were not happy with the spout type water feeders that seem to be supplied as standard at all Pet Suppliers. This version provides a stress free water supply and my rabbits gently lap up the water as they would from a bowl. I fitted a spring around the bottle to hold it safely to the bars on the indoor cage although my out door Trixie run has bar spacing that accomodates the bottle firmly without support. A Highly Recommended rabbit accessory.
Best ever. I fill it twice a week max. Easy to fill and keep clean. Keeps two rabbits hydrated for 3-4 days. I got heavy duty elastics to hold it in place. I have mine for 3 years and still looks new.
As other reviewers have already pointed out, there is nothing to attach the bottle to the cage. The dispenser at the base can be clipped to one of the rails but, when filled, the bottle is top-heavy and puts a strain on the dispenser. We utilised an old wire coat hanger for additional support but at this price some sort of bracket should have been included. Otherwise good.
Huge. (I bought it for my ferret). The bowl is perfect size for drinking, but if your cage walls are high it might hang to high for a smeller pet. The bad thing is they didn't include that thingy to hang the bottle to the cage, so i had to think of something how to hang it on the cage... its good now :)
