5.0 out of 5 stars takes a bit of getting used to, but worth it!!, 10 April 2012
This review is from: Living World Eco Plus Water Bottle, 769 ml (Misc.)
This is a product that doesn't deserve the bad reviews it's received. The first thing to note about this is that it is meant for the inside of the cage!! If the flat side of the bottle is on the inside then it works perfectly - but I don't think that's made clear in the product description.

My pigs and rabbits are all enthusiastic drinkers, so these bottles have been a huge help as they fix very securely to the side of the cage and can't be pulled off the way that plastic bottles with thin wire ties can be. I'd had lots of problems with my guinea pigs pulling their water bottles off the side of their cages, even when I'd used extra elastic bands to secure them. This bottle has a firm spring and a wire frame, and is therefore very secure. It's easy to remove to refill, but only for someone with hands (not paws).

Not all pets get the idea of this bottle immediately. It took my rabbits two days to work out how to use this type of bottle (they had a bowl of water, so there was no chance of them dehydrating,) but once they'd understood that the nossle came out to the side they were fine with it.

I think my favourite thing, however, is the cleanliness. I've always found that plastic bottles get grubby over time no matter how much you clean them. This impervious glass is ideal for small animal bottles as the little grains of food won't fix to the inside, so no bacteria forms. Algae is easily removed with a bottle brush, and no residue is left behind.

I'd recommend trying (and sticking with) this product for a while - it's a bit different, but it's worth it.
