How UV-C works
No matter how hard you try, sooner or later, saliva, dirt particles, and airborne pathogens will end up in your cat’s water. If enough of them inhabit your cat’s fountain, your cat could get ill. UV-C light prevents any viruses, bacteria, or mold from multiplying. This means that if any pathogens get into your cat’s water, there won’t ever be enough of them to negatively affect your cat’s health.
Your cat won’t even know it’s there
The UV-C rays don’t affect the temperature or taste of your cat’s water, nor do they reach outside the fountain. As the sterilizer in our Catit PIXI Smart Fountain sits in the center of the reservoir’s back wall, inside a plastic casing, the range of the UV-C rays is perfectly controlled and optimized to obtain the best water quality possible. Lab tests confirm that at 10 cm from the unit, no rays can be detected, which ensures that your cat doesn’t get exposed to any level of UV-C. So even though the sterilizer does an amazing job, your cat will never know it’s there.
Certifications as cherry on the cake
