Does your cat like to drink from the tap? This automatic drinking fountain simulates a tap avoiding the waste of water.
I have designed a bowl and a pipe to connect it to a water pump. The pump is connected to a PIR sensor that activates the pump the the cat is close.
Bowl: Desgined to place the water pump and a support for bottles. Feel free to redisign it and improve it.
Pipe: is a pipe of 1.5mm of thickness.
Support for bottles: Based on the thing #38224. It includes a female helix to connect it to the bowl in order to use different pieces depending on the bottle used.
UPDATED!! V2: I kept the original height to ensure the water level on the entry of the pump.
Support for 9 volts battery: I used the thing #2672627.
- Switch: Small switch to power on/off the system.
Although both of them are USB and can fit together, I cut the connectors and soldered the wires. See the electric diagram on pictures.
This is my firt desing. I hope you enjoy it.
