Cheap Recycling Water Bowl for Pets!




Introduction: Cheap Recycling Water Bowl for Pets!

About: I dig making hemp jewelry and upcycling would-be tossed items. I also run a free website that maps businesses that offer "free tire air" to the public. is the URL. Check it out before...

This instructable will show you how to keep your pets watered on the cheap, as well as help clean up your house! This recycling water bowl will stop pets that like to splash water all over the floor in order to get "fresh" water!

If your pets are anything like ours, they are finicky and won't drink water unless it's "fresh". This was how we didn't buy one of those expensive Made in China set-ups.

What you'll need:
Large water container - this one is from a local grocery
Aquarium pump - sized to fit your water container
Electrical outlet

A ten gallon filter did not work for me on another project and I am not sure if it was the brand or the volume.
