The addition of a smart water fountain in a cat household may seem like a fancy luxury, but it is actually beneficial to the cat’s health. I am going to talk about how a smart fountain can benefit us.
Maintaining your cat’s hydration is important for a healthy lifestyle. A cat water fountain is a healthier, better way to provide fresh water to your cat. Adding features like a filtration and sterilization system make the smart fountain a safer and more practical alternative to traditional water bowls for cats.
A high-density filter element consisting of PP cotton, coconut shell activated carbon, ion exchange resin, and KDF makes sure the fountain keeps pumping clean water.
- PP cotton catches debris, like dirt and hair from building up in the water.
- KDF is an environmentally friendly water treatment medium that can effectively reduce or remove heavy metals in water and inhibit the growth and reproduction of microorganisms in water.
- Coconut shell activated carbon keeps the water cleaner and can improve the taste and smell, again encouraging your cats to drink more.
- Ion exchange resin softens water and removes calcium and magnesium ions that induce cats’ urinary stones.
The last thing you want to see at the end of the day is your cat’s stagnant water bowl. It’s probably full of gunk, isn’t it? Water from a fountain is much cleaner for your cat.
Fresher flowing water can encourage your cats to drink more, but why is that important?
Most cats who eat mainly dry food, like kibble, don’t drink enough water. When your cats aren’t getting regular moisture from their diet, such as from a raw or canned diet, they will need to drink plenty of water throughout the day to compensate. Water plays an important role in digestion, nutrient absorption, and even helping to flush out toxins and bacteria that can build up in the urinary and digestive tract. If your kitten has ever experienced a urinary tract infection before, then a fountain may prevent them from developing an infection in the future.
Water that has not been sterilized or disinfected contains a variety of bacteria. Bacteria in the water may cause cystitis, urethritis, inflammation of the ear canal, and the like.
With NSF-compliant, safe, and non-side-effect UV-C sterilization technology, the beaming rays of UV-C light effectively destroys the bacteria’s DNA strand and provide a clean water source for cats.
With the built-in antirust and anticorrosive silvered probes, the smart fountain can precisely measure the TDS (total dissolved solids) value.
Total dissolved solids (TDS) comprise inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides, and sulfates) and some small amounts of organic matter that are dissolved in water. The higher the TDS levels in the water, the greater the probability of harmful contaminants in the water. Normally, the TDS value of pure water is 0.
Having high TDS doesn’t always mean that water is harmful. For instance, some mineral water has high levels of solids within and this is not seen as harmful, but that is because the actual solids are. These are usually calcium, magnesium, or other substances which may not be bad for the body.
The real-time value of the TDS provides you a way of observing and monitoring your cats’ water supply and helps you keep your cats healthy.
The Fresco Ultra smart fountain comes with an app and cloud behind it. You monitor and control the fountain from anywhere anytime.
After a period of time using, the filter will not work effectively by time and water quality will degrade. The Fresco Ultra smart fountain’s innovation algorithm will push you messages alerting replace on time according to its watering, the life of the filter, and the motor’s running time.
Technology brings us convenience and makes our lifestyle healthier. Your fur-baby also deserves such benefits!
