It’s getting hotter and my dogs needed more water. I thought of making it automatic, so that they can have water even while I am away.
So I bought a float and some small related accessories and then installed in an IKEA SORTERA box (recycling bin with lid). I took half the lid off, which allows the dogs to drink water, most of the leaves to stay out, and the dogs cannot get in. Used white tape to secure the cover. When filled, it is heavy and they cannot move it.
