Fresh, flowing water and a fluid balance are vitally important for your catÕs health, helping to support healthy kidneys and combat infections in the urinary tract. Whether your cat is young or old, the Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain can be an extremely beneficial drinking solution for cats that struggle to drink enough water. The Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain set includes a drinking fountain and a triple action filter that offers your cat flowing, oxygen-rich water and encourages it to drink. The water flows through three different levels so that your cat can drink to its heartÕs desire from wherever it chooses. It can decide between a smooth or calm flow and a more energetic, gushing water source. The Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain also features a compact and ergonomic design. Inside you will find a large, opaque reservoir that can store up to 3 litres of water without taking up excessive amounts of space. The comfortable height makes the flower fountain perfect for kittens as well as adult cats. The double-function filter found inside the Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain (replacement filters can be purchased separately) softens hard tap water as well as filtering out hairs, food waste, impurities and sediment. In spite of the many functions of the Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain, it is extremely easy to set up and to clean. Simply clean each individual section with a neutral soap free from chemicals and scouring agents, then rinse by hand. You will quickly find that the Catit 2.0 Flower Fountain works wonders on your catÕs wellbeing!

Please take steps to ensure that no traces of soap are left behind. Cleaning the Filter: Remove the filter from the bottom compartment and clean it. Do not wash the filter with soap. The foam mats within the filter should also be cleaned because otherwise water will no longer flow through it. If the filter contains impurities or other foreign substances, you will need to replace it. (Replacement filters are sold separately.) Replace the filter every three weeks or when it becomes saturated with foreign substances (impurities, food remains, hair, etc.) Having to replace the filters very often may have something to do with the local environment or water quality, or it may be to do with have several pets. Please refer to the manual. Cleaning the pump: Check the drive magnet (“Propeller”, “Impeller”), by removing it from the pump and clean it carefully with a cloth. As tap water contains limestone, it’s not just coffee machines that build up limescale over several months, but also aquarium filters and cat / dog drinking fountains. That’s why it’s important to clean up the drive magnet with vinegar several times a year. The drive magnet looks like a propeller and/or a rotor. Pour some vinegar into a bowl, dilute with tap water and dip a cloth into the solution. Wipe the drive magnet with the damp cloth and carefully clean around it. It’s highly important that all parts are properly cleaned out with tap water as vinegar and other cleaning substances can be harmful to animals. The pump should be cleaned min. every 4 weeks. Please refer to the manual.
