The water dispenser (optional) can be connected to the main hopper by a connector, which fits below the water dish and beneath the main hopper.
The connector is detached to avoid breakage in shipping and can be secured beneath the water dish permanently with super glue.
For maximum water capacity, fill the water dish with water before inserting a full bottle of water. The water dish holds 1 cup of water and the bottle 2 cups – for a combined total of 3 cups. We do recommend the use of “spring” or purified water, since elements in tap water can corrode the spring in the bottle’s cap, prematurely. Also, to avoid damaging the activator (pole) in the water dish, please refrain from moving the bottle from side to side, when inserting it into the water dish.
