Having a pet is much like having a child. You have to feed your pet, clean up after your pet and give your pet attention and love. I often call our family dog my “third child” because he is constantly demanding my attention. Once my husband and I put the children down for the evening, our miniature poodle likes to play when all we want to do is relax. One of his favorite late night activities is to drag his water bowl around the house and claw at it to let us know that he is out of water. He also likes doing this activity throughout the day when he wants some water in his bowl as well. After 2 years of bending down 2-3 times a day to refill his water bowl (only to have much of it slosh all over the floor), my husband and I had decided enough is enough. We began to look for a water bowl that was sturdy, well made and would automatically keep our dog hydrated for longer than a day or two. This search is what lead me to find the TORUS™ water bowl.
TORUS™ (latin for ‘hollow circular ring’) is not your average water bowl. You see, conventional water bowls contain limited amounts of water which can be reduced by evaporation and spills (yep, we’ve had plenty of spills). TORUS™ is the holy grail for pet owners. You see, with TORUS™ the drinking water is actually stored INSIDE the walls of the water bowl which ensures an ample supply of water which is protected from dust and other contaminants. The low profile of the bow and soft rubber feet help prevent spills. Only a small amount of water is dispensed at a time and when that water is consumed by your pet, the bowl automatically fills back up with new clean water. At 2.5 lbs TORUS™ is perfect for travel. The valve can be locked and secured so that the water that is stored inside the walls doesn’t leak out.
Features of TORUS™
The TORUS™ has been a god send to our home. No more spills, no more waking up at 3am to our dog clanking his bowl around the kitchen wanting a drink. The TORUS™ is incredibly easy to operate (even our kids can do it!); fill the reservoir from the top, turn the cap to the droplet/wave position and the water will self-dispense. The water automatically replenishes itself, giving our poodle access to cool and delicious carbon-filtered water whenever he is thirsty. The TORUS™ dispenses approx. a little over half a pint each time, so each time our dog drinks from the bowl, the water is clean and fresh. The reservoir itself holds about 2-3 days’ worth of water for our little guy (even more for a cat). I love the ease of use, the high quality of the product and how it makes our lives easier. Now, I am waiting for TORUS™ to come out with a self-dispensing food bowl.
