I just got my new fun thing for my cats!! I got approved to test out this Electronic Pet Drinking Fountain, sold by OWNPETS on Amazon. They wanted me to do an unboxing video, just to show you what it's like to get this brand new and set it up and see it working right away. You can check out my video below.
The fountain's easy enough to set up, really. Just open everything up, add water, and turn it on. But for some reason I got confused when it told me to add water. Could just be bad translation in the instructions, I don't know, but I got hung up on that part. The system's supposed to know when the water level's too low, and it's supposed to shut off once it hits that point, as well as display a red light in front. When the water's full, the light's blue. I was actually kind of impressed w/the button that turns the system on/off, as it's touch and not push. I like that about this thing. A longer touch will turn it off.
I've got this thing sitting on my bathroom counter right now, and the cord's just long enough so that it's on the other side of the sink, away from the outlet. My cats like to play in the water, and I'm hoping that this fountain will keep them from moving the whole dish around, knocking it over and jumping in it. I'm kind of paranoid now though about them chewing through the cord and getting electrocuted (they like to eat cords), so I'm second guessing this thing. We'll see what happens after a little bit w/this out. I've got the cord kind of covered, as best I can, for now.
I really don't get how the water's filtered though. It seems to me like it can pass through the top and go down in the bottom well without passing through the filter. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't think my cats care too much about if the water's filtered or not, anyway. But they all do love the fountain in general. All 8 of them came up to check it out right away (as soon as I let them in the bathroom after setting it up), and were drinking from it in no time. I think they'll be happy with this.
