The bonus is that this filtering water bowl is about half the price of some of the commercial filtering water bowls and will hold at least two gallons of water.
Step 1: Gather materials
- Large water bowl (I prefer a 10 quart stainless steel) - (about $17.00 USD)
- Small aquarium circulating water filter - (about $13.00 USD)
- Plastic or wood pieces to shim the water filter - (free or very cheap)
Step 2: Assemble water filter
Step 3: Hang filter assembly on water bowl
Step 5: Add water
Step 6: Prime filter
Step 7: Enjoy the flow
You will need to change the water filter about every three weeks or so. It will depend on how how much your pets either shed or slobber into the bowl. Everytime I change the filter, the bowl and filter pump all get a good scrub down.
If you have curious cats, you may need to use some tape to secure the lid of the water filter. A couple of ice cubes floating in the water bowl can give your cats something to play with as well.
