Do not waste your money! It leaks so bad. I only purchased this one to replace a smaller bottle, so I wouldn’t have to fill the small bottle so often. (The small bottle is not the same brand by-the-way, doesn’t leak and is several years old.) I was so disappointment in this large water bottle. It was very difficult to attach to the cage, not that it mattered because I had to immediately remove it so that my chinchilla wouldn’t get soaked.
This is my second 26oz water bottle. Chewy sent me a new one after the first one I had purchased started leaking. After a few months the replacement one started leaking as well. I recommend going 8oz Kaytee small animal water bottles. Yes I have to refill mine more often (why I was excited about the 26oz water bottle) but the nozzles do not seem to be able to handle the pressure in the bigger bottles.
I have this water bottle in my classroom and often find it has leaked all over my cage and my guinea pig has had no water for quite some time. I can't get it to stop dripping. Horrible and I have only used it for like two months.
The bottles are unusable they drip water non stop. I ordered 3 and tried all the 3 bottles/nozzles in different combinations in case one of those was defective. Han they are all leaking non stop and flooding my rats' cage. Returning this junk. It really made me mad.
Not what I wanted. These leak and empty out within an hour. I thought I was buying the ball bearing no leak. This ball just floats in the tube, not as advertised.
My Guinea pigs water bottle developed a major leak. I ordered a new one. Meanwhile I made a makeshift one that wasn't very sturdy so I was up all night checking on them. I expected several sleepless nights. The next day (Sunday) I was very pleasantly surprised to see they had delivered it the next day!
Would not stop dripping, thought it was something I did wrong at first but no.
Bottle is good, I’ve had one before for my guinea pig, but didnt realize this one would be too big. It’s very large and my guinea pig has knocked it down a few times.
I have tried other water bottles, with wet results. Kaytee cleans easily, bottle brush for the glass and straw brush for the metal tube, none have ever leaked. Love Kaytee, almost as much as Chewy.
They don't hang very well. The straw/spout doesn't show enough for my Guinea Pig girls to be able to drink any water and the spout constantly drips, not easy to clean at all either...what a shame, I'll keep looking
