Just thought I'd share in case anyone else has a similar problem...
I have a very fussy puppy. She does not like still water in bowls and will refuse to drink from them to the point of dehydration.
She has now worked out that the good fresh water comes from tap's.
This provoked me to build my reticulating water bowl...
It took me 1/2 hour to build and has given my dog her own little water fountain..
It consists of:-
10l bottom tank (food/water container)
40cm x 5cm Garden pot saucer (plastic is suitable rating e.g not poisonous)
40cm clear vinyl tubing
12v water fountain submersible pump
1/2 threaded nipple (to connect bowl to tank)
Everytime she walk's near it, she run's over and almost sucks on the tube...
It run's 24/7 and has been working non stop for 3mth's now.
She think's it's fresh, new water every time it comes out the spout.
In the future I hope to make the unit ceramic and tile mozaic the inside of the bowl for effect..
Hope you like it.... :)
