THIS LISTING IS FOR THE COPPER WATERLEAF ONLY. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE A FOUNTAIN

To learn all about our fountains, how they are made, about the copper elements, our processes and studio, visit our new site, www.thirstycatfountains.com where you will find all the answers you may need.

Note that although the Waterleaf will stay where positioned, it can be knocked over so if you have cats who like to play with everything this may not be the best choice for you.

This is the same copper used in the plumbing systems of up-scale homes. Not only is it safe, it is beneficial. Go here for more information: http://thirstycatfountains.com/faq/copper/
In addition the solder contains no lead.

So many people have requested this that we've decided to include it as an add-on. For many it will add too much to the cost so allow me to explain why it costs what it does.

The stem is cut from 1/4 inch pure copper tube, torch heated to cherry red (annealed) and formed to shape to follow the contours of a particular fountain. The spout end is cut with a jeweler's saw for a graceful transition and filed. The leaf is cut from pure copper sheet, heated to cherry red, filed and hammered into shape. They are joined together and soldered with silver solder (no lead). The join is smoothed and cleaned with jewelers' burr bits on a flex shaft tool then polished.

Each one will be made to fit a particular fountain. They all cost the same regardless of size because it is not the materials but the time it takes to make them which determines the cost. If a particular fountain listing says it can take one of these Waterleaves, then it can and if it does not say it can then it can't.

Please allow an extra day 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) and a wonderful addition to your home's decor. The flow level can be adjusted at the pump which does not involve more electricity, simply allowing more water into the pump.

Important Features:
- Copper is an antimicrobial, meaning it actually inhibits bacteria and viruses
- Is the preferred material for delivering drinking water
- Promotes feline health with fresh flowing, oxygenated water which cats prefer so they drink more and stay healthier
- Your cats can drink from the falling water and directly from the bowl.
- No splash
- Easy to assemble, easy to clean
- One of a kind, handmade in America

Happy to have some spare filters. I have two long haired cats and these really do a great job keeping the cat hair out of the pump.
