The unique, patented design of the Edstrom animal drinking valve utilizes precision-manufactured parts including a guard to protect the stem from accidental movements, a shield to help prevent bedding from entering the valve, and an O-ring and diaphragm to provide the sealing force to deliver water on demand. Every Edstrom animal drinking valve is manufactured and tested under strict quality control at our facility in Waterford, Wisconsin.
Highest Quality Materials. We use only the highest quality materials, such as 316 stainless steel and silicone that withstands the rigors of sanitization and water treatment. Our animal drinking valves are precisely manufactured, calibrated, and individually tested.
Animal Drinking Valves to Suit Your Species
Edstrom has drinking valves for almost every animal in the vivarium. Whether you have mice, rats, dogs, guinea pigs, primates, hogs, birds, cats, rabbits, etc., we have drinking valves to suit the species. 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 animals release the stem, water flow immediately stops.
