Pet Water Bowl Float Indicator

Problem: When I looked into the water container from a distance, it was difficult to determine the water level remaining.
Action: Since the water container had a small neck, I took a piece of foam, that I happened to have around, about 1/4 inch thick and cut it in a spiral with the width of the strips being able to easily pass through the neck of the bottle. Once the foam was in the bottle, it resumed its flat shape and floated on top of the water.
It was very easy to see when the water level was low from a distance. If I had poor eyesight, this addition would be even more useful. Any color could be used.
I did not attach a string to the end of the foam to hang down out of the opening so I could more easily retrieve the foam, but that could be done. Ultimately the foam would have to be treated with some kind of micro inhibitor as is this particular water bottle.
The nice thing about this or a similar accessory is that it can be sold to be placed in existing pet or animal watering apparatus.
