This is what I have been drinking from for the past several days. It is a far cry from the big water container that used to sit here. But Mommy was concerned that the old one might not be the best for me. Even though she tried to keep it clean, she was having trouble telling if the black marks in it were from our hard water, or something else. So, she decided to get rid of it.
After two trips to the store yesterday, Mommy came back with this:
She said she picked it because of the way it moved the water. This is the photo on the side of the box that showed her how it worked.
She also liked the fact that the water jug was smaller and she could keep it filled by herself (Mommy is not allowed to lift heavy things)
When she got it set up, I could not wait to give it a try.
She put it in the place where my old water dish has always sat.
It has a waterfall on it!!! And the water was nice and clean!
I didn’t even mind the noise that it makes. I just kept drinking!!!
However, Mommy said there was a problem with this fountain. When you first turned it on, a good amount of water came down the waterfall. But as time went on, it got less and less till it finally stopped. The motor kept turning, but the water was not moving.
So, Daddy took it apart. He found out why it would not work right.
This is what the underside of the motor looks like. Notice that thing sticking up in the middle? It is shaped like a backward “D”.
This is the place were that “D” shaped thing is supposed to connect. If you notice, it is round, not “D” shaped. Daddy said he thinks it is a manufacturing defect. Mommy said she would take it back and get something else.
So here is what she got today.
Mommy says it holds a bit more water and has a pump. Daddy said he will put it together shortly. I’ll let you know tomorrow how this one goes.
