Bergan Petite Gourmet 1.5 Gallon Waterer
Designed for the smaller pets, this unit dispenses up to 1-1/2 gallons of water with a clear container to view levels of contents. The water tower has a removable fill cap that won't release water until tower is placed on the base. The large opening makes cleaning and filling a breeze and the wide base helps prevent tipping. The large reservoir is great for large or short nosed pets and the detachable towers making cleaning a breeze.

Good waterer for dogs, overallSep 14, 2008
The bottle stays quite securely in the base, and the walls of the base are high enough that my dogs generally don't spill the water out of it. Of course the entire unit can be tipped over, but overall it's quite sturdy and stays upright unless pushed over quite hard (e.g., when one of my dogs has a seizure).
What I like best about the unit is it's easy to fill in a regular sink, e.g., a not-deep bathroom sink. It appears the manufacturer sized the water container intentionally for this, as it's pretty nearly a perfect fit in my sink to fill.
It has a wide opening so looks like it will be easy to clean if/when I need to (I haven't yet). The water is controlled in coming out by a separate little cap/hole in the lid. With that open and the container in place on the base, the water trickles out into the water dish portion.
The cap is very secure, but sometimes it's a bit hard to get it aligned so it screws on tightly.
Overall, I'm very happy with these units. I've bought several of them for my rather large dogs.

An improvement over my discontinued "igloo" waterer.....Oct 27, 2008
This waterer has a smooth surface on the entire surface in which the water comes in contact. VERY easiy to clean, no rough surface, ALL areas are accessable by hand (for cleaning). Has valve in cap so when it's inverted onto the bowl it may be then be opened AFTER the water jug is inverted. Anti-microbal plastic bowl. Smaller 2.5 gallon size most practical, the jug snaps securely into the base also.

Holds a lot!Oct 01, 2007
By Phuong Nguyen
This waterer holds a lot of water = 1.5 gallons! Very easy to use. I have 6 little dogs and once this is filled, it doesn't run out for about a week. What I like is that the bottom is gray so it doesn't look dirty like other ones that are lighter in color. I had previously used another similar gadget where you screw in a 2 liter bottle but once the water started coming down the pressure would make the bottle "dent in" and this does NOT do that. I have the matching food dispenser and it looks very nice. Again that holds about a weeks worth of food for my 6 little chihuahua sized dogs.

Not easy to clean. Not easy to fill.Jun 22, 2009
Boy! A dog watering bowl. How hard can it be to design a good one? Pretty hard, I guess, since I haven't found one yet that I'd give 5 stars.
I've been using this one for about two years. The good thing here is that it holds 3 gallons so I only have to refill it about twice a week for my two dogs.
The bad - gunk (algae, I think, or some other kind of scum) grows inside the tank and it's really hard to clean it out. Also, to refill you fill the tank with water, replace the lid, then in one clean swift movement you have to flip it over and insert it into the base before the water squirts out all over the place. Filled with water, the tank weighs over 20 lbs so this is not as easy as it sounds.
I think if they'd put an airtight lid on the TOP of the tank in addition to the regular screw lid on the bottom, both these problems would go away. You could remove the top lid to reach in and clean the other end, and you could refill the tank through the top.

The best water dispenser for multi-pet homes...Nov 28, 2008
By Mary Chrapliwy
I have had a few automatic water systems. This one is by far the best one of all of them. I have several animals - including dogs and cats. They go through water pretty quickly. I have to fill this dispenser about every 2-3 days. Others had to be filled and cleaned almost daily. This holds a lot of water!
My favorite thing about this water dispenser - something that most others don't have - is that it is so easy to clean. The water bottle has a wide opening that you can fit sponge in hand completely inside. Over time these bottles can get pretty dirty. The fact that this one is so easy to clean helps me keep a fresh supply of clean water for my animals.
I can't recommend this highly enough. If mine every wears out, I'll replace it with another one exactly like this.
