This is the same copper used in the plumbing of up-scale homes. Not only is it safe, it is beneficial. Click this link to learn more.
Please note that the Cat Tap is handmade and the solder used is silver solder containing no lead.
A gentle stream (or quite robust if you turn the pump up) flows from this 100% food-save copper CatTap. Note that this listing does not include a fountain or an additional pump-hide. Most bubble-up design fountains can take the 1 Cat Cat Tap but aren’t sold with one in order to keep the fountain price down. It simply fits over the pump nozzle and can be swapped in or out with the traditional copper spout that comes with most fountains. The only fountains which cannot take this Cat Tap are those with a very small opening on the pump-hide and those with one of the Ceramic Watertowers.
Please note that though all the Cat Taps and the Waterleaf attach firmly to the pump and are quite secure, they can be knocked over so if you have a rambuncous cat these may not be a wise choice.
Each is handmade to fit a particular fountain so some will be higher and or longer and others lower and or shorter. I make sure enough room is left between the flow and the bowl edge so there is no splash when your cats are drinking. The cost is not so much because of the materials as the time and work involved in their making.
Please note that the Cat Tap is only sold with a CatFountains fountain or for a previously sold CatfFountains fountain. It is always best to order the Cat Tap when you order the fountain so that I can make sure it is a proper fit, works well and has no splash-out as making one to fit a previously sold fountain always requires a little guess work.
Please allow an extra bisoday or two for shipping as these are made to order and are very demanding to make.
Great for cats who really like to drink from a falling stream of water (like a faucet). The flow level can be adjusted at the pump which does not involve more electricity simply allowing more water into the pump.
