Automatic Watering System

Automated Animal Watering

Custom Designed Automatic Watering solution for your facility, from water purification and treatment, to water distribution piping and drinking valves. Edstrom is capable of providing water to practically every animal in the vivarium. Whether you have mice, rats, dogs, guinea pigs, non-human primates, hogs, birds, cats, or rabbits, we have drinking valves to suit the species. Whether recirculation or flushing, each Edstrom Automated Watering System is individually engineered to deliver consistent, high quality, variable-free drinking water to all of your animals.

Sipper Sack

Flexible and user-friendly, Sipper Sack utilizes a disposable, sterilized, plastic sack and a reusable, autoclavable, stainless steel drinking valve to water laboratory animals. Conveniently filled at the point-of-use, the system performs in-room, on-demand sack filling under the cage changing station’s controlled environment. The compact filler fits easily in the cage changing station, and the user can customize the fill volume using simple, intuitive controls. While the Sipper Sack is filling, the animal technician performs the cage change. If you need to medicate the water, just inject water-soluble medications into the fill port prior to inserting the valve. Next, place the Sipper Sack into the cage, just as you would a water bottle. When you perform the next cage change, simply remove the Sipper Sack and pull out the valve before disposing the bag.

Water Purification

Provide consistent, high quality drinking water to your laboratory animals year-round by using reverse osmosis combined with pretreatment filtration and post-treatment disinfection. The Edstrom Ultrafilter Water Purification System is a standalone unit that provides clean, filtered water for animal drinking water applications. Edstrom water treatment products help to destroy contaminants found in your incoming water supply and kill any that develop downstream.
