Title
(EN) PET FOUNTAIN ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE FONTAINE POUR ANIMAUX DOMESTIQUES
Abstract
(EN) A pet fountain having a basin and a cover overlying at least part of the basin and is supported by a sidewall of the basin and a pump disposed therebetween. The basin and cover have sidewall sections that converge to form a V-shaped locator arrangement that positions a coupling tube in communication with drinking bowl inlet of the cover so it is substantially coaxial with an outlet of the pump or pump module to telescopically engage the outlet. The basin can have an upraised shelf that holds a cord conduit providing a cord routing recess underneath. The shelf is disposed adjacent the V-shaped locator arrangement between an apex of the V-shaped locator arrangement and the pump or pump module minimizing the length of the cord run to the pump. In one embodiment, the V-shaped locator arrangement is formed by at least the basin having a raindrop or teardrop shape.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une fontaine pour animaux domestiques ayant une cuvette et un couvercle superposé sur au moins une partie de la cuvette et supporté par une paroi latérale de la cuvette et une pompe disposée entre ceux-ci. La cuvette et le couvercle ont des sections de paroi latérale qui convergent pour former un agencement de localisateur en forme de V qui positionne un tube de couplage en communication avec une entrée d'abreuvoir du couvercle, de telle sorte qu'il est sensiblement coaxial avec une sortie de la pompe ou du module de pompe pour venir en prise de manière télescopique avec la sortie. La cuvette peut avoir une tablette remontée qui contient un conduit de cordon fournissant un renfoncement d'acheminement de cordon sous celle-ci. La tablette est disposée adjacente à l'agencement de localisateur en forme de V entre un apex de l'agencement de localisateur en forme de V et la pompe ou le module de pompe rendant minimale la longueur du cordon s'étendant vers la pompe. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'agencement de localisateur en forme de V est formé par au moins la cuvette ayant une forme de gouttes de pluie ou de larme.
