    DefaultWater Bottle question.....

    I bought one of those 'self filling' water bowls and I didn't consider the 'dirt' factor - any ideas how to keep the bowl clean?? :-[

    I have one, holds about 3 gallons. We keep it away from her food, and the bowl stays pretty clean. I refill it when about half empty. The schedule I set up to make sure if I forget, there is still water for her. About three days between filling, so there isn't too mauch dirt. I scrub the bowl with each filling of the bottle.

    She usually comes in from outside and has dirt in her mouth from her endless tasting out there and hits the bowl for a drink. I made the mistake of filling it right up.. maybe I shouldn't have...

    Patti, sounds like Rowan needs a "prewash" water station along side of this new bowl!! Good luck. Guthrie never seems to have a dirt free mouth so I am no help!

    I had one, and quit using it for the same reason. After just one drink, the bowl would be full of dirt, wood chips, grass etc.

    This is good to know. I have thought several times when seeing these in the store about getting one. I can see where the dirt would be a problem. Based on your experience I think I'll just stay with the ceramic bowl!

    Cinnamon and Cierra refuse to drink out of the plastic one. So I am thinking about ordering this ceramic one. It is small so it should be easy to keep clean I hope.

    I have one that I keep outside. Shelby is fond of digging in it :, so 5 gallons doesn't last long, especially when she has her buddies over to play.

    We have a one gallon one Puff uses. From time to time it accumulates pieces of grass and dirt but I clean it out every time I fill it -- or, if it's really dirty, before then.

    Puff drinks from puddles after it's rained and those also have pieces of grass and dirt in them and they seem to do her no harm.
