Pet Water Dispenser Real Reviews | Pet Water Dispenser is Necessary to Buy?
For pet water fountains, some people with pets feel that it is an "IQ tax" product - is not a machine that can attract cats and dogs to drink water, what else is it? If the family pet itself likes to drink water, it is not necessary to buy it? And there are complaints from pet owners about the safety of leaking pet water dispensers and the "cartridge grows worms" health problems, which sounds pretty scary.
Now it's 2022, if the pet water dispenser still has these problems, then it can indeed be said that it is "IQ tax".
However, there are many people who prepare water fountains for their pets.
Because cats by nature like gurgling water, so they will lick the water coming out of the faucet, or even toilet water, in their eyes flowing water "clean and sanitary". The water in the ordinary drinking tray does not move, the pet's attraction is low, and sometimes they jump around, raising dust into the water tray, the water is dirty, more want not to drink. So the pet owner still has to change the water and wash the tray, which is really troublesome.
Pet water dispenser can make the water flow for circulation, both from the water flow and from the sound, will attract them to drink water, but also the water dust, hair and cat food crumbs filtered out, so that the water quality is clearer, not easy to spoil, you can let the pets drink cleaner live water.
Therefore, it is still very necessary to prepare a pet water dispenser for the pets.
So the question arises, how to choose a pet water fountain?
How to avoid leakage, long worms, secondary pollution, cleaning trouble?
I think, since pet water dispensers are also a necessity, for the sake of cats and kittens' health, I compared the better water dispensers on the market, and from a comprehensive point of view, this CatCare Ultra Clean Pet Water Fountain is better!
The main two reasons for looking at this water dispenser are.
1, the purification capacity of full points, human-grade purification capacity, intercept 99.99% of E. coli!
2, super easy to clean, because the filtration system is external, 1 second that can be disassembled to clean the water tray and the body!
Of course, after receiving the next, comprehensive view, that is, this CatCare Ultra Clean Pet Water Fountain, the first thing is to study first.
First of all, its hexagonal body design also looks quite design, better than the round water machine to pick up, one-piece body has a hidden hand handle, move it or change the water, etc., just need to mention it by hand can be taken away, effortless. Although it is a small design, but the pet owner experience is really friendly.
Look appearance is quite good, so how to use it? I specifically tested.
- Purification ability, very important!
Now most of the pet water dispenser filtration and purification components are based on a combination of high-density microporous filter cotton + activated carbon + ion exchange resin. Although these filter materials can filter the impurities in the water, but the water in addition to hair, impurities, food residues, there will be bacteria and microscopic particles invisible to the naked eye, these impurities are free to pass the filter barrier, but the pets drink it is certainly not good for the body. And after a period of use will become particularly dirty.
The dogcare water dispenser most attracted my attention is the UF ultrafiltration membrane cartridge, which is made of hollow fiber ultrafiltration membrane, filtration accuracy of about 0.1-0.01 microns, can effectively reduce the turbidity of raw water, intercepting most of the bacteria. From the third-party testing agency SGS test report, dogcare water dispenser can filter out 99.9999% of E. coli, purification capacity is absolutely assured!
In addition to the external UF ultrafiltration membrane cartridge, there are also two other filtration mechanisms, respectively, the pore size of 0.6mm 304 stainless steel microporous primary filter cartridge and can intercept fine suspended particles 40PPI microfiltration cotton, so after three effective purification, the water hair, impurities, food residues and even bacteria, can be well intercepted.
This is the schematic diagram of the microfilter cotton installed in the pump
40PPI mesh water pump microfilter cotton
Extreme test one: purification of cat food and hair mixture
Simulating the scene where pets usually eat a few mouthfuls of cat food and then drink water, or use the small paws that have just finished grooming to fiddle with the water, the water basin was added to the mixture of cat food crumbs and hair fibers.
Actual test about 20 minutes, the impurities in the water is basically purified, the naked eye seems to have been quite clean.
The open body inspection found that the entire machine's three lines of defense obviously produced a very good purification effect. First is the 304 stainless steel microporous primary filter box, completely along with the flow of water to the cat food broken and hair intercepted in the coarse filter box. After the water circulation into the water storage tank, before entering the pump will pass outside the pump 40PPI microfilter cotton, further intercepting fine suspended particles. The last line of defense comes to the UF ultrafiltration membrane cartridge, water flowing down the pump into the cartridge, where the naked eye can not be observed in the 0.1-0.01 micron particles are also intercepted inside the cartridge.
Extreme test two: purification of carbon ink
Because the non-laboratory environment can not test the interception ability of E. coli, I used carbon ink instead, the dogcare CATCARE pet ultra-purified water dispenser was tested .
E. coli is about 0.5 microns, while the particle size of carbon ink is about 0.5-1 microns.
After the carbon ink was poured into the water storage area, the water in the storage area was basically dyed black. Because the adhesion of carbon molecules is quite strong, so the text written with carbon ink is easy to preserve and not easy to fade. This also shows that carbon ink is difficult to be filtered clean. Let's see the final purification effect!
After the dogcare water dispenser purification, the water is already quite clear.
Such a powerful purification capacity is mainly by UF ultrafiltration membrane cartridge, the carbon particles in the carbon ink adsorption intercepted within the cartridge, this water dispenser provides a real solution for purifying the cat's drinking water.
Of course, if you do not add ink and add crushed cat food water, a cartridge with three months is no problem at all, just like our home water purifier is the same.
Safety, can not be ignored!
There are many pet owners complained that because the water fountain leakage (usually said to be induction electricity) caused by the pet does not drink water, so do not want to use the water fountain. I thought about it, such a situation is also quite terrible, because the volume of cats and dogs is much smaller than ours, sometimes we do not matter whether we touch with our fingers or use our tongues to test, can not feel the slight current, in fact, they are very harmful (imagine the moment we encounter static electricity in winter), these tiny currents will scare them, the timid cats and kittens will cause a serious stress reaction, so Reflexively stay away from this water fountain, never to drink water again.
The most intuitive way to test for induction is to use an electric pen. I took the electric pen that I usually use at home and tested it.
Can see, the electric pen contact to the water storage area, is completely unlit, proving that there is no induction or leakage of electricity occurs. Of course, this electric pen measured with electricity, it is like this.
Dogcare this water dispenser really does not leak and no induction of electricity. By the way, they are equipped with a three-plug non-inductive power adapter.
To the pet water dispenser equipped with a special three-plug manufacturers have to pay special attention! This power adapter can be designed from the circuit to eliminate induction electricity, which is basically a complete solution to the problem of leakage or induction electricity, you pet owners can rest assured that their pets use.
- Convenience of daily use.
Dogcare's cartridge is installed outside the water dispenser tank, so that when cleaning the tank, it is more convenient to disassemble, and this external cartridge can also prevent the water in the tank from secondary contamination. Here I also found a friend to use other brands of pet water dispenser, to carry out a simple disassembly, compared to Dogcare this water dispenser parts are more streamlined, cleaning is more convenient.
These parts are installed directly at the bottom of the water storage area, when cleaning to disassemble and wash the whole set together, for pet owners, really want to be lazy and afraid of pet illness, not lazy and really too much trouble.
Although I am not particularly sensitive to the noise of water flow, because generally speaking the water flow is considered white noise, you can ignore it when you are used to hearing it, but for people who are sensitive to sound, they will not feel comfortable. dogcare water dispenser has a raised slope surface design, when the spout position in the middle, the water flow through the buffer, the sound of water will be eliminated, suitable for the night or people who are afraid of noise. When the spout is set to the left and right, the water will have a gurgling sound, which can play a role in attracting cats to drink water.
This design is still quite thoughtful, at least for my cat, did come over to watch and play curiously for a while. Finally, the data speaks for itself, using a decibel meter to test.
When the water dispenser is running, the noise is 38.3 decibels (compared to the ambient volume of 37.5 decibels), equivalent to the sound of a whisper. Water fountains in the home is basically completely silent.
For hearing pets is very adequate, for pet owners and will not be disturbed, is very thoughtful.
Finally, I would like to report on the use of this Dogcare CATCARE pet water dispenser in my home, this period of time, the family cat still likes it, something or nothing will pass by to lick two mouthfuls of water, a day of drinking water enough.
In addition, my guy sometimes likes to play with the water with his paws, if before we would stop him, but after using the dogcare water dispenser, basically just let him have fun. Because even if his paws are covered with dust or fur or whatever, the water he fiddled with will be continuously recycled and purified.
In summary, the pet water dispenser is really not an IQ tax, buy it and know it! When buying a look at the purification capacity, followed by safety, and finally to see whether the daily operation is convenient, currently I can meet these three requirements, only this Dogcare CATCARE water dispenser, 2022 pet's healthy drinking water on it! Looking forward to the next iteration to add more practical features!
