Last week my pet water dispenser / fountain broke. Winky my cat was playing with the water and knocked it off the porch. I needed a to go on weekend trip and needed to make a temporary water dispenser for my cat.
I was in search of a new water fountain and found several online ( https://amzn.to/2M46saf ) that were good but were made of plastic. I liked my Daiso water dispenser as it used 1.5 liter tea beverage bottle that i can recycle and replace every couple of months if needed. Alas, i was not able to find the water dispenser base. I wanted a stainless steel base dispenser for ease of cleaning and durability ( https://amzn.to/2Ohi5qW ), however they were pricey and i didnt want to invert a bottle to refill.
My solution: DIY a stainless steel water fountain with a 2 liter bottle as a reservoir! I bought a large stainless steel pet food bowl ( https://amzn.to/2OeJzgE ) and got recently finished 2 liter bottle of ginger ale soda with cap ( https://amzn.to/2KwQ0cV ).
Using a plastic cup to experiment, I cut a small triangle on the bottom to test the concept of using gravity pressure feed for the water dispenser. It worked. So I used a utility knife and scissors to cut a 1/2 inch (1 centimeter ) tall triangle 2 inches from the base of the bottle. The tip of the triangle will be upper limit of the water level you want for the water bowl. To fill the bottle, i place my finger over the triangle to stop water from draining. Uncap the top and fill the bottle. Replace the cap. I then place the bottle into the large bowl. It will drain until it reaches the top of the triangle and stop.
Simple temporary solution to buying something more complex to supply 2 days of water to my cat. The 2 liter bottle was a good size as it was not heavy to carry and handle. It was also recyclable.
I hope this DIY was useful and will probably create a cleaner version of this water dispenser. Anyways please like subscribe and stayed tuned for more DIYs and other pet stuff.
This is for video is for entertainment, do so at your own risk or just buy a pet water fountain from a pet store. I only needed this as it was a temporary fix. My neighbors fed and watered my cat when i was away.
Thanks for watching.
