Help please, which water bottles have you found do not leak, I am having a nightmare with new water bottles leaking
 
There is not yet the totally drip safe water bottle.

What product are you using? The traditional water bottles you need to fill up right to the rim with working all bubbles out in order to create a vacuum.
 
I have the large plastic ones from pets at home, had no prob before, I have tried everyway to stop the leaking but their cages are soaked by the morning
 
I just use "classic deluxe" bottles. I have 4 and none drip. I just fill them up and give them a quick shake to create a vacuum inside
 
Well, it depends on the brand and the material.

Pet Smart (US) and Pets at Home (UK) sell great guinea pig items if you would prefer not to order. If you would, there is a couple sites:
-PetSupply.com
-PetSuperMarket.com

And of course, you can always order from Pets at Home and Pet Smart (now is a good time to order since its cyber week).

I had a glass water bottle, and it always seemed to leak and make a huge mess in Cherry's cage. So I tried a plastic one, and it did the trick (although it still lightly leaks)! I live in the US, so I don't know what Pets at Home sells, and knowing that I buy my guinea pig supplies at Pet Smart.

Buying the right water bottle really depends on what you think and what your experiences are.

Hope I helped,

I use the deluxe classic bunny clear plastic bottles. They are very good.
Do they leak less then normal guinea pig bottles? I may consider getting a bunny deluxe if you say so! :P
(Also, how much do they cost on average?)

I have the same bottle as @Davey-cavy maybe he has some knowledge on the price?
They are the only bottles I have used, so I cannot compare, but I am pleased with them.

If they are the ones I think they are, you can get them as cheaply as less than £2 per bottle from VetUk online. Zooplus also sell them online around the same sort of price and they are widely available in pet shops including Pets at Home - I'm wondering if they are what you already have...?
 
That sounds about right. They Are quite cheap. £2ish sounds about right.

We don't have Pets at Home in the US, but if it's about 2 pounds, I'll consider getting one for Cherry this Christmas! :nod:

Adding to my post, I have now heard many great reviews on deluxe rabbit bottles! Maybe consider trying those.
 
Just searching for other people's experiences of water bottles as our hutch is sodden by the morning after using Living World glass bottles. Think a trip to Pet@Home in order this afternoon for a plastic one x Cheers guys x
