Default Ferplast Sippy Waterbottle leaking

As the title states.
The instructions said it'll leak for about 2-3 days but mine has gone longer.
The wet beeding annoy us to no end, especially since Carefresh isn't even cheap.

I've a regular water bottle in Latte's cage just because!
I've often found the bottle to drain empty 2-3 hours after I refill it.

Any advice on this or should I just throw it away? It doesn't even seem broken from the looks of it.

It sounds like it's broken since its draining that quickly, my old WW's sippy never leaked. The water bottle that came with Franny and Stephy's duna was almost as bad too. maybe there's an issue with ferplast water bottle manufacturing now?

Ferplast sippy waterbottle is a pain in the ass to adjust. The metal part that is used to drink can be regulated. If you tight it the water doesn't come out so easily, and if you loose it up, it leaks more easily. The trick is to find the right spot. To tight/loose up that part you have to use a grey thingy with a hole in the middle that comes in the waterbottle box.

I spend like three days adjusting it til it didn't leak but it let the water flow if you push it.

I don't know if I explained it right. I'm not at home right now, but if you don't understand me I can try to take some photos when I arrive

Oh, right! I forgot about the gray little screw tool thingie, thanks!
I've since adjusted it some and the leakage is still there but much MUCH slower, thank goddness!

I used to have a small bowl under my hamster bottles in case of leaks. It stopped the substrate getting wet.

It's useful temporary fix until you know the bottle doesn't leak or get a new bottle.

You may need to empty it every so often depending on how much the bottle leaks.
