Over 90% of the animal facilities in North America and an ever-increasing number worldwide use Edstrom watering systems in their vivariums. Leading pharmaceutical, government and academic research facilities rely on Edstrom for their critical animal watering requirements. We design and manufacture the complete automated watering solution: from water purification and treatment to water distribution piping and drinking valves. Each of our systems is custom designed based on water quality, facility size, room layout, cage manufacturer, and animal species. We meet the needs of all sizes and types of facilities through an expandable system designed to grow with your facility.
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 a 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.
Here’s How it Works:
To get a drink, animals simply bite, lick, or nose the stem of the valve and water flows out at a controlled rate appropriate for the species. When the animal releases the stem, water flow immediately stops. Avidity continuously leads the industry with drinking valve innovations that ensure animals and cages stay dry. The unique, patented design of the Avidity shielded drinking valve is used to water millions of mice and rats in ventilated cages. Proven time and time again, these premier valves have an exceptional record of reliability and are easy for animals to use.
