Questions & Answers

17 Customer Questions

How does it attach to the cage?
Answer by ChewyFeb 10, 2018
Please refer to the picture below for a visual example for the attachment of this water bottle.

Is the nozzle any larger for each bottle size? I have a Californian bun and she has been slapping her water bottle silly lately, would like a larger nozzle not just a wide mouth for easy cleaning.
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2018
The width of the nozzle will be the same for all sizes.

Is this a 5/8 nozzle
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2019
The nozzle for this bottle is approximately 3/8 inch in diameter.

Does it create a vacuum and then the water doesn't come out?
Answer by ChewyJun 16, 2020
This bottle features a stainless steel, double ball-point tube and special silicone seal that prevents leaks.

Lixit Bottle is the worst ever

first the metal wire that holds the bottle to the cage is waaaay too tight Also and worst of all it leaks from the spout like a sieve !!! no matter what i do it. I filled the bottle and by the end of the day it was almost empty.....changing the bedding in the guinea pigs cage i found the water!!!! the pee pad and all shavings were soaked and there was an eight of an inch of standing water ...... Also the spout is so short that it barely goes thru the bars of the cage. Dont buy this!!!!!!!!!!

works well!

I have four male ratties and this is a perfect second bottle! If it drips it isn’t enough for me to notice. Easy to clean and easy for my rats to get water from.:) I would buy another one for my female rats!

Not leak proof!

I got this bottle and the next day it leaked all over my rabbit's cage and it was completely saturated; I then filled it in the sink and it just came pouring out of the lid. Maybe I just got a dysfunctional one, but this bottle is NOT leak proof!

Always leaking

We were hoping this bottle would do better then the others we have tried. Unfortunately it continues to leak constantly. The instructions indicated once the animal starts to use it it would stop leaking. It does not. For the small amount this bottle costs not worth sending back.

lixit water bottle for my rabbits

l have gone through many water bottles for my rabbits. Various brand that were just garbage. This bottle was not only reasonably cheap but works great right from the start. I would recommend this bottle.

Water leaked / poured heavily

I don't know if it was faulty or not but it didn't work for me. Water pretty much poured out of it and left me with a mess to clean up.

Doesn’t fit a Critter Nation cage

I can’t comment on the quality of the water bottle other than it does seem sturdy. But the nozzle is too big for a Critter Nation cage. The space between the bars on the cage is 1/2” and the listing says the nozzle is 3/8”, but since it goes in at a diagonal angle it won’t fit without bending the bars. And all the bottle sizes have the same size nozzle. Bummer.

Does not work

It does not work as advertised. The metal does not hold the water bottle up!

Great bottle!

I've had many small animal pets over the years, and have had issues with water bottles that either dripped or didn't work. This bottle has been great. The wide mouth makes it easy to fill and clean, and best of all it works and doesn't drip!
