by SusannaSails Great product - No leaks
I got this bottle for a raccoon that wasn't quite tame at first. I didn't want him chewing the bottle so the metal spout was important. I also love the size and little floater so I can easily see if the water level is low. But the most important factor was leakage. I learned that when filling the bottle you have to keep the spout down and bump the little metal ball until a vacuum forms and the water stops dripping. As long as you do this it won't leak. Rocky loves the bottle and now there's no mess in the cage from overturned bowls of water. Great product~!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by danapoint Great bottle, but you need to seat the washer
Keep this in stock!! My favorite water bottle. Most reviews complain about leakage, but there is a simple solution: you just must make sure the clear washer inside the cap is firmly seated in the bottom of the cap before you put it on; the washer almost always loosens when you remove the cap to refill the bottle, and then it won't seal properly. I use a chopstick to tamp it down to make sure it is fully flat inside the cap. It is also easy to lose, if you don't see that it has fallen out when you open and rinse the cap because the washer is clear. No bottle I have ever used will keep the water in if you don't have the washer seated in there. I have also only had to replace one of the brackets because I was apparently rather rough putting the bottle back in over time, so now I am more gentle. I really like the flat back and the little ducky water level indicator. My only complaint (hence the 4 stars) is that the "dimple" it the middle of the bottle makes it difficult to thoroughly scrub the bottle clean. I don't really understand why it needs to be there, but there it is nonetheless.

I thought I would give this a try. I filled it up and as soon as I turned it upside to put into cage...it leaked so badly it was almost like a leaky faucet. Disappointed and returning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlfiesFamily Good bottle, Bad bracket
The bottle is fine, I like the little floating duck. The snap loc bracket just doesn't last very long at all, and doesn't attach well to larger animal cages such as rabbits and guinea pigs- literally falls out from between the rails. I've added large washers and that had helped.
