Product Description

Pattern Name: Platinum

Drinking plenty of water is as essential for your pet’s health as it is for your own. By providing a constant stream of falling water, the innovative Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain makes drinking more attractive and fun for your pet, as well as more convenient for you. No longer will your pet have to slurp stagnant water from a traditional bowl or hop onto the kitchen counter to try to drink from the sink. A patented 5-inch free-falling stream of water gives your pet a refreshing drink from any angle, so she no longer has to wait her turn for a quick drink. The replaceable charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors. The pump is submersible to ensure nearly silent operation. The curved receiving ramp prevents falling water from splashing on your floor. Rubber feet keep the fountain secure on your floor. Runs on a low-voltage 12-volt system that plugs into your wall outlet. Holds 50 ounces of water. Easy to take apart for quick cleaning. Covered by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

One of my two cats passed away last December of kidney failure...a common cat disease. I was told that cats (unlike dogs) do not drink enough water. And if you feed your cats dry cat food, as I do, because they are on a special diet, the lack of moisture contributes to problem. Both of my cats were always in the tub, sink or toilet trying to get water, even tho' we gave them bowls of fresh water every day. Cats prefer running water. I first bought a cat fountain from Walmart - the cats didn't like it because it didn't simulate a faucet, so I returned it. The minute I bought the Drinkwell Fountain, my cats immediately took to it. And I can honestly say that both cats drank much more water. Unlike the first 2 reviewers, I don't find it too loud. You should keep it topped up every day. A couple of tips - it does need to be cleaned once a week, which takes about 10 minutes or so. There is a charcoal filter which needs to be replaced, much like a Brita filter. There is a reservoir where you can put ice cubes on hot days. There is a little lever which lets you control the flow of water - low to high. Follow the manufacturers instructions e.g. don't let the fountain go dry, or you'll ruin the motor. I wish I had bought this fountain years ago and maybe my first cat would not have died from kidney failure.

Holds more then enough water, over a week with out filling, very quite compaired to all others (I have owned at least 5 different ones). This is by far the easiest fountain ever to clean and keep clean, it all comes apart and you can put your hand in every part no brushes required! (use a quetip for the motor housing). The multiple fountians option combined with flow control makes it possible to change to your liking how much water noise you get. I see this as the 6th but last Fountian i will ever buy, every other I have owned was difficult to clean, didnt hold much water and didnt last long, on average 1 year. I have had this running for almost 2 months with no issues at all. I would recomend this for anyone with pets.

We bought this fountain 2 years ago and it unfortunately recently stopped working. We had to buy a new one because our two cats love it. Remember to clean and descale your motors to keep them in good working order. We live in a hard water area so there is a lot of scrubbing required! There is a new filter around the motor on newer fountains which should also help keep the fur out.
Amazon seems to have the cheapest prices for the fountains. I bought it at a big box pet store which was not smart because it was overpriced in comparison. I wish I had thought to check Amazon first.

I love this fountain. Not because of the interchangeable spouts (that's nice but entirely unneeded for my cats) but because I have radiant floor heating. My old pet mate would evaporate most of its tiny water capacity leaving little for my cats. The Drinkwell is gigantic by comparison with the pet mate. Where I would fill the pet mate twice a day I fill the Drinkwell every two or three days.

The design is very simple. Since it has no nooks it is simple to clean. I no longer have old cat hair floating in the fountain after a thorough "cleaning."

You won't be disappointed if you get this fountain.

I have been trying to get my cat a fountain for a long time but he would never drink out of any I tried. When I purchased this one and set it up, he finally went to it and began playing in it. Now he is drinking from the top of the fountain and loves it. And it is sturdy enough that he cannot move it with his foot.

After my initial purchase I would have given this 5 stars. Now that I've owned it awhile there are some things I really don't like about it. The biggest issue is cleaning and replacing filters. But first the good.

This is a beautiful fountain, and when it works pets love to drink from it. I have one small dog and 3 cats. All of them are happy to drink from it, often two at the same time. (I've never seen more than two at once.) It probably doesn't need to be a full 360, as one side is probably against a wall, but it actually a fairly economical design for space usage.

Now the bad.

If you go into a pet store to buy the filters, they probably will not have them. I ordered filters within a week. About 6 weeks later they finally arrived at the pet store. I waited a couple of more weeks since the instructions are to change every 60 days. At that point I opened up and discovered there was no charcoal filter in the package, just a piece of foam. It turns out there are two types of filters for this fountain. The charcoal filters which should be replaced every 15 days, and foam which should be replaced every 60 days. That makes the cost of ownership of this fountain way too high... But if you are going to follow the instructions order them on amazon. If you order enough for the free shipping, it will cost the same as a pet store, but you are more likely to get exactly what you needed.

Now actually replacing the foam filter is a huge pain. When you look at the fountain it appears like you should just be able to twist it and remove the whole center tower. However, after struggling in vane to do this I search the internet to find instructions on how to do this. I didn't find any.
