Heyrex is proud to showcase the Torus, the ultimate pet water bowl.
The Torus water bowl stores up to 2 liters (half a gallon) of water inside its reservoir within the bowl walls, ensuring an ample supply of water, protected from dust and contaminants. Each time your pet takes a drink, replacement water automatically flows from the storage area into the drinking well, passing through a carbon filter, and maintaining fresh water in the bowl to a depth of about half an inch. No batteries or electricity required.
Activated carbon in the replaceable filter reduces the impurities, trace elements and flavours commonly present in municipal water supplies. Replacement filters are supplied in packs of 5. Each filter gives a month of clean water for your dog or cat. This pack comes with 5 bonus filters.
The Torus bowl is exceptionally stable. Its low-profile geometry and soft rubber feet help prevent accidental spills from boisterous pets or passers-by. The water level in the bowl is always high enough to allow easy drinking but low enough to minimize water spills and splashes.
The Torus is a go-anywhere bowl. The valve position when locked secures stored water inside the bowl walls so you can take Torus with you wherever you go. It's completely mobile and ideal for trips to the park, beach, snow, camping, RV or anywhere.

Before buying this you should take note that this thing is huge (see the image uploaded by another user). Because both of my cats are on the smaller side, I was a bit apprehensive, but even my 3 month old kitten has taken to it just fine. Another thing to know is that the unit is made of plastic, which can be a turn off to some cat owners, as it was initially for me. For those two reasons, this product does not rate 5 stars for me.
Those caveats aside, this really is the best solution I've found to keeping fresh, clean water out for my cats. I have the Pioneer Pet Raindrop Drinking fountain and quickly grew to hate it -- the unit has to be filled with a lot of water to keep the unit flowing properly and because hair and other debris accumulates in the bowl, the water gets really gross after 3 or 4 days, so I was constantly dumping out a great amount of water and cleaning/refreshing the bowl. Also, because my cats are on an all wet or raw diet, they don't drink a lot of water, so for me, using the fountain was a huge waste of water and time (with the constant cleaning of the unit, etc.). Also, my cats were really freaked out by the noise of the motor, and spent hours staring and/or playing with the water as opposed to drinking from it.
Well, everything I dislike about the Pioneer fountain, I really like about the Torus bowl (and vice versa -- I still wish at least the drinking bowl was made of stainless steel or ceramic and that it didn't have such a large footprint). First of all, I can fill the reservoir and not have to worry about the water in there growing nasty with fungus, hair, and debris. If the water in the inner bowl stands for too long and does get debris in it, I simply switch the bowl to the lock position, empty out what water is in the drinking bowl, and then set the unit to refill from the internal reservoir. It's very easy to use and I am wasting a lot less water than using either an automatic fountain that has to be cleaned and refilled every few days or setting out bowls of water that end up getting dumped out and refilled everyday. Also, the fact that the bowl is filled passively without electricity is not only great for saving money on electricity, but cuts out the "noise" factor that equally scared and intrigued my cats (but discouraged them from drinking the water). However, I should note that neither of my cats have shown a propensity for drinking flowing water, so this product works just fine for them.
One thing I will mention is that on the Heyrex website, they encourage the use of water sterilizing tablets to sanitize the bowl, and I have since heeded that advice. The reason that plastic gives cats feline acne is that plastic is porous and thus has a tendency to hold on to bacteria that can then transfer to your cats skin when eating/drinking, causing problems. By using the sterilizing tablets, you can effectively kill the bacteria that "clings" within the plastics pores, thereby (hopefully) mitigating that which makes plastic a less than desirable material to use. However, Heyrex is a New Zealand company, and if like me you live in the US, they don't really sell water sterlizing tablets stateside. Nevertheless, I found them sold on Amazon by a UK company (look for Milton Sterilising Tablets 56(2 Pack)) and while they take a few weeks to arrive, they are very cheap and come with free shipping so I simply stocked up. Right now, once a week, I give the bowl a soak with the sterilizing tablets (and I can drain any water still in the reservoir into a pitcher to refill after disinfecting to keep from wasting water), and I'm hoping that keeps the bacterial load low enough to keep my cats safe (so far, so good!).
Is it expense? Yes. But if this is what you need, it's definitely worth it.
He still drips a little because he is a sloppy drinker but I can deal with a little trickle of water versus a huge puddle on ceramic tile which becomes very slippery.
I bought the medium size that holds 2 liters of water. Before this bowl, we were filling his water dish soooo many times a day because half would end up on the floor. Now we may fill this two or three times a day. I don't know what kind of dog those negative reviewers gave who said they are upset they have to fill the bowl every few days, but giving my fur baby fresh water multiple times a day is not a negative in my mind.
Now when we go on a road trip, I can take this bowl along instead of a bunch of water bottles. You just spin the dial to lock and absolutely nothing comes out!!
I also am not concerned about cleaning it with the ring being sealed. I will just mix some vinegar and baking soda in hot water, pour it in, and swish it around every few months.
