If a Watermatic fountain and one of the old metal Commander fountains made love, and had a baby, the baby would cry Ecofount! The best of both worlds - foam filled poly walls, 304 stainless pan to hold the water, with aggressive heaters and dependable thermostats controlling the whole affair. Then add to this, the floating enclosures which keeps water cool in summer, warm in winter (but could be removed if desired) and which keeps out sunlight (low algea growth); the enclosures also keep out cold winds, insects, & dirt. Well, what you would have is a fountain with all needs met! Like all Ritchie waterers, they are super rugged to take whatever you and your animals want to throw at it. But it is safe for your animals to be around with its smooth edges and corners. The highly insulated extra thick-walled polyethylene construction will be with you for a lifetime. We like to say that ECOFOUNTS ARE EXCELLENT! This unit comes in two colors - yellow and green. Outdoors, yellow provides cooler water in the summer, and when cleaned up attracts attention and looks the most sanitary. The green color is great where the natural look is desired such as deer leases, zoos, natural animal habitats, or to compliment barn colors. The side panel is generous in size and easy to remove to gain water line access. Cleaning of the trough using the flip-top cover is a simple affair. The Ecofount 1 can be placed just about anywhere, along a wall, a fence, in the middle of a paddock, etc. The Ecofount may be overkill for the southern part of the United States, but it is a wonderful help where the winters are hard. This model # waters 30 animals and is made in the Green color.
