If anyone can recommend a good water bottle I'd really appreciate it. I am wasting an obscene amount of money on bedding that's getting soaked with drinking water. We've tried two different water bottles just today and both brand new bottles also have a rapid leak. Thanks.

No, I haven't found any yet, but I am using drip dishes underneath for that reason. Sippy bottles can be a bit hit and miss as to leakiness in my experience and they can also suddenly give out at some point.

You need to fill tradidional bottles right to the rim with water in order to create a vacuum. Some piggies are also very messy drinkers.

PS: There is also a larger rabbit version of the same guinea pig corner bowl, which you may find better for catching a whole leaking 300ml bottle.

Yes! We have no issues with the female's water bottle, but the males' floods them out. I thought maybe hers was from a better batch. haha. We put something underneath last week, but it was too shallow and they tipped it over. The one you suggested looks terrific. Thank you!

My water bottles never seem to leak. I haven't had a problem with my "classic" water bottle also I have a "rotastack" bottle and they don't leak. Strange. The only issue I had was when the wire holding them onto the cage was too tight round them amd they dripped a bit then. I attatched a cable tie in a loop onto the cage and hooked one side of the wire into that. Also u need to fill them to the top, no air bubbles. As my hubby only half filled them once and the cage was flooded. Lol.

ergh! I feel your pain! Literally been through 5 bottles trying to find a non drip one! I use fleece but its still always wet and I hate it! I even bought a really expensive glass one the other month, for the first week it was amazing... then... drip...drip...drip! ergh! So frustrating!

Defiantly going to pick up one of those dishes though!
