I thought I found the perfect water bottle and left a great review. The first one I bought to test it was perfect. Then I bought 6 more and left a glowing review because I thought they were all like the first one in quality. I put them together and then on my guinea pig’s cages. Came back about two hours or so later to find that some of them unfortunately leak and because they can only go on the cage one way, that water ended up on my wood floors. Not good. I’m sad because the first one works so well but some of the other ones leak where the mouth part has to be inserted. I followed all the directions on the leaflet so it must be a defect. Super sad because this is the fourth water bottle type I have bought and had issues with. It is sad that companies can’t make a quality product anymore. Feel like I am constantly wasting money and having only one or a couple from a batch work on any brand is unacceptable. Chewy is good about refunds but still just having to keep ordering, waiting and then being repeatedly dissatisfied and disappointed.
I bought this for my rats as a second water source. I liked that is has a top fill on the outside of the cage, making it easy to fill. Unfortunately my rats have no idea how to use it. I've shown them several times and they just refuse. I'm not sure if it's the down spout or the fact that it's a tiny pointed dripper compared to the regular ball dripper. If your rodents are accustomed to the usual ball dripper, I'd stick with those.
I got 2 of these for my outside rabbits. The rabbits had ro figure how it works. I only used one because came broken.
This is awesome. My other water bottle constantly leaked. This one does not leak at all. Make sure to use key to tighten drinking nozzle. Best water bottle ever!!
I got two of these to test out with my guniea pigs. One guniea pig figured it out and used it. The others figured out how to completely drain it however. So I took the bottles and gave them to my hedgehog who uses it just fine. My main complaint is the "key" that came with the bottle. It's made of cheap plastic and warps when you try to unscrew the nozzle. I had to use a pair of pliers to undo the nozzle. Other than I definitely will be getting another one for my other hedgehogs.
I love these things. No more of the bottles with wire handles falling off the cages.
The spout snapped off of the bottle within days of use.
I would definitely recommend and I would buy these again if I could
Of all the water bottles we have tried this one is the best so far. My little piggies used it right away. No leaks!
This is great water bottle for small animals. Although our rats had a little trouble figuring it out right away.I put some peanut butter on the tip and that did the trick.
