Petsafe Healthy Pet Water Station Review

Are you looking for an efficient pet water dispenser that has an enormous capacity but doesn’t need electricity to run?

The Cat Water System is the answer you’re looking for and we’ll be discussing further why.
The PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station is a pet water dispenser that automatically distributes water from the reservoir into the stainless steel bowl with the help of gravity.

You don’t need to plug it or put in batteries for it to work.

The PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station has the following features:

  • Water bottle is easy to refill
  • Removable stainless steel bowl is automatically refilled with water from the reservoir
  • The multi-purpose bowl can be used for food or water
  • The reservoir has a flow-control valve that prevents water from overflowing; no electricity needed
  • Suitable for any pet size
  • Purifying filter is optional
  • Choose from 3 water reservoir capacities: .5gal, 1gal, and 2.5gal
  • Plastic water reservoir is BPA-free
  • Dishwasher-safe and easy to clean

This pet fountain has been designed to eliminate the need to use a motor pump to provide your pets with clean, filtered water.

A large water reservoir can hold water amounting from half a gallon up to 2.5 gallons and this can last for several days, depending on the number of pets you have at home.

The water flows into a stainless steel bowl which is the ideal material for pet bowls.

The PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station is so easy to set up that even a toddler can do it.

You don’t even need a manual to know how every component fit into each other.

How It Works

The PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station is unlike any other pet water dispenser that needs an electric pump to provide your pets with filtered water.

Using gravity’s natural downward pull, the water from the reservoir is regulated by the flow-control valve and is drawn out into the inclined bowl until it’s filled to the brim.

Water in the bowl is kept from overflowing with the help of air pressure.

When the water level in the bowl falls below the height of the flow-control valve, air pressure takes action and lets out water to refill the bowl to the brim.

This whole process continues until nothing is left in the reservoir.

This product is simple to set up.

You just need to fill the reservoir with water and snap all the pieces together.

Everything from assembly to maintenance is written in the product manual.

Maintenance and Support

All components of the PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station can be put in a dishwasher for cleaning.

You can also clean it manually by disassembling the parts and brushing them with dishwashing soap and water.

Cleaning frequency depends on how your pets use the product.

This pet water dispenser can be used with or without a filter.

If you plan to attach a carbon filter to it, make sure you rinse it first with cold water for 1-2 minutes to remove any charcoal residue.

Filters need to be changed every 2-4 weeks, depending on the pet fountain’s usage.

If you have concerns about the product, you can give PetSafe a call anytime, 6 days a week.

You can also reach them through email or chat.

They also sell spare parts like the removable cap and the stainless steel bowl if you ever need to replace them.

How your pet might react

best price for the Pet Water StationPets won’t have problems shifting from an ordinary pet bowl to the PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station because they look almost the same.

There are no humming motors installed on this pet water dispenser which some pets despise.

One of the main features owners love about this pet water dispenser is its large water capacity.

Some say they can leave the dispenser for an average of 1 week before it needs refilling.

It’s also suitable for households with multiple pets because the reservoir can be expanded to hold up to 2.5 gallons of drinking water.

Owners find it unusual, though, that the water bottle can’t be refilled without removing it from the bowl.

The main problem about this product its owners usually talk about is its inconsistent water output.

Even though the reservoir is full, nothing is coming out of it to refill the empty bowl with water.

Some say they experienced the opposite: they left the reservoir full and when they came back home, their floor is flooding with water from the water bottle.

PetSafe is offering replacement parts for the flow-control valve if yours start to malfunction.
