Do REAL no drip water bottles exist?

I've had a rabbit, guinea pigs, mice, and hampsters in the past. I now have a rat. I've NEVER had a rodnet water bottle that didn't drip. It's messy, it wets the bedding, and it's wasteful. I distill our drinking water (even the animals') and it takes a long time so I don't like to see it all drip away. Every bottle advertises itself as non drip. How do I find one that really doesn't? I'm using the one that came with the cage for now.

  • We had guinea pigs and the bottles always dripped. The bedding gets wet, the guinea pig pooed in his food bowl. It's animals, that's what they do. LOL!

  • Mine is the type with the ball in it. It still drips. I guess I can just put something under it and hope he doesn't throw it.

  • I agree, put a small bowl under it to catch any water drops. I would get a heavier dish so you don't have to worry about him being able to push it over or anything.

  • Mine don't drip either. It's all about the position. Instead of using the wires they come with, I use a hair elastic to secure them in place. That helps secure it tighter.
