|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.
Some of our units such as the Amazon Water Basin & Tropical
Lagoon Units have a sump pit installed within
of the units habitat base. A powerful self priming sump pump
is placed into this pit. This pump
flushes out the water and waste that is trapped into the pit
as it is rinsed during cleaning. 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 waterall sculture. 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.
