Lixit Waterer for Crates - 64 Ounce (Half-Gallon) Model DW-64
Tube type made especially for dogs. Recommended for outdoor use. Includes mounting brackets. For crate / travel use we recommend the Lixit 44 oz. bottle.
This 64 oz bottle uses a vacuum lock to prevent leakage, not valve action. You will experience occasional dripping with your water bottle. THIS IS NORMAL. Please follow these steps to prevent excessive dripping. Remember, the larger the capacity of your bottle the longer it takes to create a vacuum. Sometimes these bottles can take up to one hour depending on conditions. Made in the USA.
Always fill bottle completely full with room temperature water (a bottle not completely filled will drip more while making a vacuum).
Make sure the gasket is in place inside the cap and lies flat without any ripples or cuts.
Tighten cap securely -- the cap must be on VERY TIGHT.
Place your bottle over a sink or outside. With tube and cap facing down, gently squeeze bottle to displace any remaining air throughout the tube. A little water may squirt out.
Immediately tap the ball bearing several times to insure vacuum is working. You may have to depress the ball bearing for several minutes. This is a large capacity bottle and it can take 15 minutes to stop dripping after tapping.
Always use both wires when attaching to the cage. Without the support wire the bottle will leak.
Once you hang the bottle it can take several minutes or longer to create the vacuum. Tap ball bearing several more times to insure vacuum is working.
Remember, if the bottle is shaken or bounced about (as in a car) the bottle can lose vacuum and occasional dripping will occur until vacuum is reestablished.
Always test your bottle before leaving pet alone. It is recommended that your pets water bottle should be checked and changed daily when possible.
Country of Origin: Made in USA.
