The Rain Chamber

The Rain Chamber

Some collectors live in climate zones such as Florida that are suitable for taking their animals outside and allowing exercise on specially built "jungle gyms". Frequently these collectors will "rain" on these animals with a hose which often stimulates the Basin to defecate. Living in Colorado, we do not have this luxury and therefore have developed a device we call the "rain chamber".

The rain chamber is a water tight enclosure made of white welded polypropylene with a series of removable perches and a temperature controlled misting system. Our chamber is 48 inches tall, 48 inches wide and 28 inches deep. The rain chamber is an essential tool for maintaining the general health of our Basins. Through the use of this device, we can routinely exercise our Basins and essentially schedule their bowel movements. Rain chamber sessions last between 10 and 30 minutes. The water temperature is constant at 90 degrees.

Rain chamber use is helpful when you have an animal that needs to defecate or is having shedding or hydration issues. We also place females in the rain chamber after they deliver babies to induce the female to expel any remaining afterbirth.
