Cats Love Cold Waterâ„¢

What are the benefits of drinking cold water?

Health experts state that cold water is better absorbed which keeps the kidneys healthy. Common sense tells us that drinking cold water results in more water being consumed which keeps the entire body healthier.

Glacier Point Fountains are the only fountains that can easily and safely provide cool water with patent pending technologies. Some benefits achieved with water refrigerated by the chilling unit of The Perfect Pet Fountain™ can be accomplished with the Glacier Point Basic Fountain™ by using refrigerated water in the refill bottles.

PET FOUNTAIN
FACTS & FICTION

1. Carbon filters will remove bacteria -- False.  For more information see here .

Implications of these studies: Because sooner or later, all fountains will contain all sorts of algae, mold, viruses and bacteria, it becomes obvious that the fountain must be easily and effectively cleaned. According to the CDC, porous materials such as plastic cannot be sanitized. Glazed ceramic is not porous and can be santitized with heat or chemicals without any damage to the ceramic basin or a pet. Further, when a non-porous material is cleaned, all traces of any chemical are easily rinsed away.

2. Moving water cools water -- False. Source: See this reference .

Implications:  There is only one fountain that has been proven to chill the water in a fountain. The Perfect Pet Fountain™ by Sierra BioScience is the only patent pending fountain that will chill the drinking water.

3. Falling water puts oxygen into the water making the water taste better -- No evidence.

Discussion:  There are no relevant studies showing that any cat has a preference or aversion to water based on the amount of dissolved oxygen being the only variable. As all fountains have water flowing into the bowl all fountains are equal except the only fountain that has a chilling unit which increases the dissolved oxygen content more than 15% i.e. The Glacier Point Perfect Pet Fountain™     See this source .

4. Stainless steel bowls are better and safer than other materials -- False. Source: See this reference .

Implications: There are over 150 grades of stainless steel that contain various amounts of nickel and chromium which can be toxic when released from poorly made stainless steel. Stainless steel loses its desirable properties when submerged in water such as when used as a watering bowl for pets. If a safe grade of stainless steel was used to make a safe stainless steel bowl, that bowl could cost hundreds of dollars. Hexavalent chromium was the chemical that was causing birth defects and cancer in the Erin Brockovich story.
