this bowl is not good because you can't clean it behind the blue cover and it gets green slim in it and you can't get it out.
AUTOMATIC WATERERS -- LARGE DOG KENNEL -- USE OVER 50 OF THESE
I breed German Shepherds as well as being a large dog boarding facility -- in southern California where it can get very hot -- having fresh water for the dogs extremely important --- I have tried several automatic systems --- of all of them the Sir Aqua II is my favorite -- works well -- easy to install -- but I do install a quick hose changer to every one -- this allows to take it out and clean it easier without messing up the float -- cleaning them with about 2 tablespoons of bleach a couple times a week keeps the algae down and looking pretty -- I have had a couple of issues with them over the years but the company is excellent at standing behind their product -- they are easy to work with too -- I will keep buying more....
Plastic float broke off just as I attached the hose. I had not even tightened everything yet!
Don't Buy This!!!!!!
Hook up and it either runs over or leaks at the fitting! It is also impossible to clean behind the covered float and gets green!
Great water dish
I'm on my second one of these, the first lasted 4 or 5 years. I replaced it only because it had a lot of hard water deposits that I couldn't clean anymore and had the beginnings of some rust. I am sure I could have used it for many more years, but for the price why not get a new one?
