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.
Many dog owners have found that their pets also love the Glacier Point water stations.
Ceramic pet fountains made in the USA are safer!!
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.
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
4. Stainless steel bowls are better and safer than other materials --
False. Source: See this
