¿Cómo quito el centro de la flor?

Primero, saca la flor de la fuente y colócala boca abajo. En la parte inferior de la flor hay 3 pequeños bordes amarillos. Utiliza un bolígrafo o un destornillador para empujar estos bordes hacia adentro. Finalmente, tira del centro amarillo de la flor hacia arriba para quitarlo.

LIMPIEZA Y MANTENIMIENTO

How can I make my Mini Flower Fountain less noisy?

Make sure that the surface underneath your fountain is sturdy and completely level. Place your fountain on the floor, not on a table or a countertop. A wooden floor will naturally be noisier than a concrete floor or tiles. Also, fill the water reservoir to its maximum capacity (up to the wavy line in the green plastic top, or when opened, up to the top ridge of the pump chamber), and clean your pump each month. For the cleaning of your pump and fountain, you can use the Catit Fountain Cleaning Set. The hard bristle brush has a small tip for accessing small areas while the flower-shaped cleaning sponge has various textures for optimal cleaning.

Why is the pump of my Mini Flower Fountain becoming less powerful?

The pump becomes less powerful when it is clogged with cat hair or other debris. To resolve this issue, check out the video below.

Another reason why your pump might not seem powerful enough is that the slider on the Flower Fountain pump might be slid to the wrong side. Slide the slider to the + side for a maximum capacity. Please note that only older models of the Mini Flower Fountain have this slider.

How do I prevent my cat from taking the Mini Flower Fountain apart?

Fill the water reservoir to its maximum capacity (up to the wavy line in the green plastic top, or when opened, up to the top ridge of the pump chamber). A fully filled fountain will be nearly impossible for a cat to knock over.

How do I prevent my cat from knocking over the Mini Flower Fountain?

Fill your fountain all the way up to the wavy line in the plastic rim. A fully filled fountain will be nearly impossible for a cat to knock over.

Can I buy the flower of the Mini Flower Fountain separately?

The flower of the Catit Mini Flower Fountain is currently not being sold separately.

What is the black sediment in my Mini Flower Fountain?

The black sediment is active carbon that escapes from the filter. The black discharge can be prevented by rinsing the filter thoroughly under the tap for several minutes before placing it inside the Flower Fountain. The small quantities of active carbon that escape from the filter will not harm your cat.

Why does my filter turn orange?

The white mesh of the filter might turn orange due to iron particles inside the active carbon. If you notice a severe orange discoloration, please replace your filter.

Why does my filter turn red-pinkish?

This colorful hue might be caused by a bacterium called Serratia Marcescens. This bacterium is abundantly present in the environment and prefers damp conditions. When this discoloration happens, replace the filter and clean the cat fountain thoroughly. Make sure the filter is submerged at all times, and prevent leaving the filter inside the fountain when you turn it off for a long time.

How to prevent mold from forming on the filter?

To prevent mold from forming on top of the filter, make sure that the Mini Fountain Filter is submerged at all times. The water inside the Mini Flower Fountain should always reach up to the wavy line in the plastic rim. Only turn off your cat fountain for maintenance and cleaning so the filter stays wet at all times.

I’ve found worms in the filter. How did they get there and how can I prevent this from happening?

Firstly, please note that Catit fountain filters are produced in a clean, controlled environment and packed in a protective sleeve to guarantee an immaculate product. However, once unpacked, the filter is continuously exposed to different contaminants. Cats, possibly having played outdoors, will introduce all kinds of germs as they drink from the fountain and, if the fountain is not running, flies or other insects can find their way in to perch on the filter. This is especially the case on hot summer days, or year-round for those living in a warm climate.

To prevent this from happening, we recommend placing your Catit drinking fountain in a cool area with as little exposure to insects as possible, and to regularly refresh the water and thoroughly rinse the filter under clean running water. Ensure the filter is fully submerged in water and that the drinking fountain is running at all times.

Which replacement filters do I need?

The Mini Flower Fountain should be used with the Catit Mini Fountain Filters, which are sold in packs of 3.

How do I remove the flower bud?

First, take the flower out of the fountain and hold it upside down. At the bottom of the flower are 3 small, yellow rims. Use a pen or screwdriver to push these rims inwards. Finally, pull the yellow flower bud upwards to remove it.
