|Maintenance and cleaning plays
a very important role in keeping your animals healthy as well
as yourself. We have developed a very efficient way to do this.
These Units are equipped so they can be sprayed and rinsed
as the Unit flushes the water and waste away.
The Amazon Water Basin has a slope built within the habitat's floor base to allow for the dirty water to run to one end of the enclosure. The sump pump is placed in the deep end of the pool to flush out the waste easily. This pump can flush out a
capacity of water within minutes.
The "water feed" is supplied by a hose fed by the
nearest faucet or it can be directly tied into the existing
plumbing. We provide a special attachment that replaces the
existing aerator on your faucet which allows a standard hose
to be snapped on to the faucet.
Because of this system, cleaning can be extremely effective
Filters can be used especially if there is a lot of water in
the Unit. These filters are custom made by us and can be installed
with the units waterfall sculpture. The filter is a 3" diameter
canister that fills
with carbon, gravel and filter floss. If there is a large animal
that creates much waste, it would actually be quicker and healthier
for the animal to flush the unit daily. Cleaning a filter can
be messy and more time consuming in this case.
