We’ve only got two dogs and I feel like I’m constantly filling the water bowl. It seems like every time I turn around it is either empty or it has dirt and slobber in it so I have to rinse it out and fill it back up with clean water. We’ve looked at the water bowls with attached reservoirs before in pet stores, but those don’t make a lot of sense to me. You wouldn’t have to fill the bowl as often, but your dog isn’t drinking fresh water. He’s getting room temperature water that has been sitting there for days.
The Easy-Clean Water Bowl is a great alternative. It’s an automatic filling bowl that attaches to a faucet, so your dog is always supplied with fresh water. It is equipped with a fast-fill float valve that can replenish the water in the dish faster than your dog can drink it. The float valve will keep the water flowing while your do is drinking, but when he stops it will fill the bowl and automatically shut off.
The bowl is also easy to clean because it has no corners, pockets, or inaccessible areas. Even the valve hinge opens so you can easily clean around it. We have a dog that is afraid of water, so I thought she may be scared of a water bowl like this one, but it doesn’t spray water or make any noise when filling, so I don’t think she’d even realize the water was coming out.
The Easy-Clean Water Bowl is great for use indoors or outside. It’s made of thick UV-resistant poly-propylene, and as you can see in the video it is extremely durable. You can mount the bowl up higher so that large breed dogs don’t have to bend as far to reach it, and it could also be used for a variety of other animals as well.
You can buy the bowl separately or in a package with a hose attachment so it can be easily hooked to an outdoor faucet or your indoor plumbing. The company’s website also offers a variety of brackets so you can mount the bowl in any way you need to. They also sell an optional heat cable that would prevent the water from freezing if it is outside in the cold. I live in Maine, so that would be a great option for us if our dogs spent a lot of time outside in the winter.
