Activated charcoal is charcoal that been treated with oxygen which opens up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. Active charcoal absorbs and retains odourous and bacterial substances. Drinkwell charcoal filters have three layers: 1. Duo density polyester pad (white side) Collects large particles and debris 2. Granulated activated charcoal Porous carbon absorbs and retains odour and bacteria 3. Polyester pad sprayed with activated carbon (black side) The spray creates a fine mesh coating capturing any remaining small particles remaining in the water as it exits the filter.
The activated carbon replacement filters are made of coconut shells. The coconut shells are put through a process called carbonization, which removes all other elements other than carbon. The carbon is then ‘activated’ by adding back oxygen, creating a material suitable for adsorption. Activated carbon absorbs basic water contaminants, as well as chlorine from tap water. This helps improve the taste and remove odours from basic drinking water.
In nature, moving water is much fresher than stagnant water. The movement constantly breaks the surface tension of the water and draws oxygen from the air into the water. This process is called aeration and it makes the water more appealing to drink. Pets may be drawn by instinct to moving water for this reason. Research shows that one of the best ways to improve your pet’s health is to get them to drink more water, and the best way to do that is with the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. The Pet Fountain filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. In addition, the constant circulation inhibits bacteria growth keeping the pet fountain cleaner. The Drinkwell Pet Fountains satisfy a pet’s urge for fresh running water and provides peace-of-mind to pet owners who know their pets have a good supply of clean water. Pet Fountains encourage pets to drink more water and for this reason are recommended by Vet Urinary Specialists.
