P7000 Auto Fish Food Dispenser Review

The P7000 by Fish Mate is another pond feeder that simply cannot be left out.  It’s 6.5 pound capacity will keep your pets full for a long time.  Like most other auto dispensers it has an easy to program lcd display and a long 6 to 9 month battery life.  It’s weather resistant, so you never have to worry about leaving it outdoors in the elements.  The price is also very reasonable for an outdoor use feeder, so great for those on a budget.

Whats Special About It

Here are our favorite points for this product:

  • 6.5 pound capacity will last a long time and can take pellets and hopper sticks.
  • Has an lcd control with 6 to 9 months of battery life.
  • It can be fastened to a secure base if needed for extra stability.
  • The parts are all dishwasher safe which makes for very easy and fast cleaning.
  • A unique feed mechanism makes for super accurate portion sizing from 3 tablespoons and upwards.
  • Meals can be programmed to be dispensed up to 3 times per day.
  • Has a snap lock lid to help keep food fresh and keep out moisture.

What We Like

  • The price.  When it comes to pond dispensers the price can get high as you probably already know.  This is where the P7000 shines, in that it provides great quality at an affordable price.
  • High capacity.  When you have a pond full of fish to satisfy you need a dispenser with a decent amount of room.  The 6.5 pound capacity of this product will last a while, saving you a lot of time.
  • Easy Cleaning.  Given that the parts of the feeder that contact food are all dishwasher safe, it makes cleaning a breeze.  It doesn’t get much easier than throwing it in the dishwasher.
  • Secure snap lock lid.  One thing that is important with any automatic dispenser is to keep the food inside dry, or else it can clump and jam.  The p7000 has this covered with a solid snap lock lid.

What We Don’t Like

  • Security.  Don’t get us wrong it looks great, the issue is that it can be possible for wildlife like raccoons to get in and steal the feed.  If you have an issue with pests then you will want to look into another dispenser.  If you don’t have any problems then this is still a solid choice!

Who Is This Product Good For?

This product is great for anyone that is looking for an affordable pond or lake fish feeder that is easy to program and has good holding capacity.  Also if you don’t have any issues with wildlife then this feeder is more than adequate.

 

Who Isn’t This Product Good For?

Basically anybody that needs to keep out wildlife could have issues with this dispenser.

Final Words

Overall this automatic dispenser is a solid choice, and would be a good addition to almost any pond, marsh or lake.  Looking for something different?  Then be sure to check out some other reviews on the homepage.
