Great product for all 2 dogs and 22 cats. Fill up every other day. Not that loud on low flow. Filter not that effective for my use as it does not draw hair up through so I would not use filter replacement. Would recommend any flowing water system for pet.

Great product. I have two bullmastiffs using the pet fountain and it helps in keeping the water fresh with the use of the filters. I particularly like that I can see how much water is left in the see=through bottle and that there is still enough water left in the main reservoir for some time after the bottle is empty. The only caution I have is to make sure that the seal between the lid and the bottle is in place. The seal is not very tight and can move, but it is also easy to seat in the correct position. Cleaning is not difficult and I do it once a week. Overall, I like this product and recommend it.

The fountain is great. Sophie, the Golden Retriever, loves it. The reservoir holds loads of water and keeps her going for a few days.

Great Addition to the Houshold (3 dogs, 2 cats) June 11 2007
By Dawn Suiter - Published on
I have been using the fountain for a few weeks now.

It holds 2.5 gallons of water, I use bottled water to fill it because that's what we drink, so I'm not worried about the filter replacement. In fact.. I don't think the filter is all that useful or purposeful. (A regular charcoal filter that the water flows around) honestly.. I don't think I'll every buy a replacement.. using bottled water as I said I feel it's not really necessary!

Once a week I clean it out.. I did not buy the cleaning kit, again doesn't seem necessary. I use the hose sprayer on my small kitchen sink to turn it upside down in and spray every crack & crevice with our hottest tap water setting for a few minutes. Works great, no scrubbing necessary.

The flow rate adjustment is great too.. fast flow or slow.. .the slow setting makes the least water trickling sound, we don't even hear it, and the fast is like any soothing home water fountain.

2.5 gallons lasts our pack of 2 medium 1 large dogs, and 2 housecats about 1 week.. I may add a little to the bowl before the week is over now that its summer but not much. I let it run down a bit low and then clean it.

I would recommend buying it, and may buy another for our covered outside area as well.

Giant Breed Owners Rejoice Jan. 9 2012
By William G. Finley - Published on

If you've been in the market for a pet fountain for your big dog then the Big-Dog is for you, it's a fantastic product. With its massive drinking area and reservoir bottle it easily holds a day of water for my St. Bernard. The dish is just the perfect size for his muzzle (just a bit bigger would be better I think but it might begin to get unwieldy at that size). It definitely can get noisy and you should appreciate that, it means you are due to clean it.

I have read some reviews that this unit is difficult to clean and I believe that is likely because the item is shipped completely assembled. While it may appear that parts of this unit don't come apart, they do. Drinkwell sells a Drinkwell Pet Fountain Cleaning Kit, I highly recommend it.

My cleaning process:

1. Remove the reservoir, filter cover and filter dumping out all waste water.
2. Remove the entire filter housing, if you look on either side of the "tower" you will see where you can place your fingers to pull it out. With the reservoir bottle out you can remove it completely.
3. Once the housing is off it's easier to turn the dish over and remove the pump motor. Simply do a quarter turn and the pump will slide out.
4. Once the pump is out remove the impeller (white plastic with 4 fins), remove all hair from the impeller and clean it and the magnet with a brush. Clean the INSIDE of the pump with a brush. The cleaning set has a brush for this purpose.
5. Remove the flow adjustment knob - this will just slide out of the bottom of the filter housing. Once you slide it out gently pull it apart. You can then remove all hair and grime that builds up inside. After it's cleaned just push the pieces back together.
6. Clean the filter housing with a brush, there's a special brush that will go down the entire square intake tube. Clean into the "food trap" it is the round shaped well between the intake and the filter well. It's designed to catch any big stuff that gets up the intake before it goes through the filter.
7. Clean out the main dish, it's a lot easier to do with the filter housing removed. There are some nooks under the filter housing where grime builds up, use brushes to get in and clean there.
8. Reassemble putting the flow knob back in the bottom, snapping the filter housing back on, putting in a fresh filter and reinstalling the pump.
9. Clean out the reservoir bottle with brushes or paper towels, rinse out throughly.
10. Fill up the reservoir bottle, fill the filter housing first and then fill the dish. Reinstall the filter cover.
11. Refill the bottle and mount and plug in the pump.

If you follow these steps you should only spend about 10 minutes doing it and have a nice clean quiet fountain when you are done. Enjoy plenty of water for your big guy or gal.

If it hums loudly call the manufacturer... July 5 2009
By Monomer - Published on
Though this isn't a must have item by any means, we do have a big Golden Retriever (we actually own two Goldens) that has always preferred drinking from a stream of running water (like a faucet or the water pouring from a bottle, etc.) and we do spoil our dogs sometimes... So out of curiosity I ordered this thing. Well when it arrived, I disassembled it and washed everything and then re-assembled... I figured this would be good practice and allowed me to evaluate the design and fit. Filled it with water and turned it on... HUMMMMMM!!! ...LOUD!!! LOUD!!! LOUD!!! this thing hummed sooo loud it could be heard two rooms away and even faintly from another floor. It was Friday evening so I had the weekend to play around with the thing. Everything I tried did nothing to quiet the loud humming of the little aquarium pump motor. I figured this canNOT possibly be right... they've probably sold tens of thousands of these things by now and no way would they have been able to do that if they all sounded this loud. So first thing on Monday I called the seller, who immediately agreed with me that something was not right, it should be very quiet. I was given the phone number of the manufacturer's customer service. After a nice conversation in which they also agreed something was not right with my unit, they sent me out a new motor/impeller at no charge. It took a week and a day to get to me. After I installed the new motor/impellor... TADA!!! no more hum. This thing is very quiet... now all I hear anymore is the gentle trickling of the water stream, hooray! ...its actually a kinda relaxing sound. The moral of the story here is... its not suppose to be loud and if you have a unit that is, just complain and ask for a new motor/impeller.

Bottomline is this is a great product... excellent design and fit. And this Big Dog fountain really is big and holds a lot of water... enough for days without having to refill it. One trick to keeping it cleaner longer is we have a separate SS water bowl next to the food dishes at dinner time so they drink out of that bowl immediately following dinner, that way all the food/kibble junk falls into the stainless bowl which we pick up soon after dinner and dump out. This keeps the Big Dog fountain from fouling up and so we don't need to wash it very often... in fact, we only wash it once every couple of weeks.

I had to rate it at only 4 stars because of the original motor's noise... and thus all totaled, it did take more than a week to get it working properly as it should have... and that inconvenience alone has got to cost it a star rating.

Dogs (and Their Humans) Love It! Dec 10 2006
By L. Schrader - Published on
We have 3 Scottish Terriers and they LOVE this thing! Scotties love fresh, running water to drink, but don't like getting water in their face. With this fountain, they get the fresh, filtered water they like, without having to worry about it getting in their face. The filter also helps clean out the debris they bring in on their beards! The large reservoir means I am not constantly refilling their water dish. I would highly recommend this product.

Big Dog Fountain Jan. 8 2007
By bumuling - Published on
I've been very pleased with this fountain. I placed it beside my "Catit" cat fountain, which needs refilling less often now-- I'm assuming because my big dog prefers the Big Dog fountain. My cats also like it, sometimes to drink from, sometimes just to watch. I like that it holds a lot of water. It's a bit noisy, I hear the water running all the time, that might bother some.
