Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain
A second good fountain
We already own a Drinkwell fountain like this one and are very happy with it. Our cats like the running-water feature and drink more than from a bowl.
Recommendation: soak the fountain parts other than the filter housing and filter once a month in a solution of vinegar and hot water. That eliminates any hard-water build-up. Empty the water completely and refill every few days at least.

We have three cats. Tried other fountains in past, but this is simply the best. Very easy to clean that's the most important feature compared to other fountains. Cats love the fact they can enjoy water at the same time. 360 action is prrrrrrfect! Not to mention chewy.com has the best price on this product...trust me I checked!

Classy Watering Hole
I purchased this water fountain because I have one cat who likes to drink from a dripping faucet and I got tired of wet paw prints on my floor. The fountain I replaced did not have a filtering system, which I feel is very important for a water bowl that isn't changed daily. It is round for access from all sides, making it easy for two or more pets to drink at one time.
This product appears to be very high quality and is quite attractive. The instructions were good and everything went together easily. It is larger than I anticipated, so needs a somewhat "roomy" location. I have noticed that the little clamps holding the funnel in place do pop off when the bowl is moved, but with a little effort they snap back into place. The one and only improvement that could be made to the design of this fountain is the addition of grip slots around the bottom of the bowl. It is difficult to pick up and move. There is a bit of noise from the waterfall trickling into the bowl, but the adjustable flow cap takes care of that. I set up my fountain in the kitchen, which is open to the living room, set the flow to a soft trickle, and I don't even notice it any more.
I really like this product.

Love this Fountain
All my pets just love the fountain - especially my cats (Rascal a tabby) and (Bella a Siamese) they drink right from the spout where the water comes out. I think they drink more because the water isn't stale but fresh and circulating through a filter.
My 2 whippets are also happy with the fountain, they usually just drink from the basin part but they enjoy it more than just a bowl of water.

THE FOUNTAIN YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
We have tried a few fountains for our cats over the years, without finding one that the cats will actually drink from (and stop DEMANDING a sink faucet be turned on).
This fountain has the MAIN features for success: it's quiet and it streams away from the base.
Our finicky feline may still whine when we're anywhere near a sink, but I know he's getting his water when we're not around. Finally!

I have tried many water fountains for my cats, and this is the only one they will get near. It is very quite and that is what they like.

Very nice water fountain and looks good too.
My new Drinkwell water fountain is wonderful. Not only do my pets find it fun to drink from it It also looks nice in my kitchen. It serves as the water station for both my dogs and cats. The cats don't have the need for the bathroom sink as much because the fountain provides that need that they seem to have for running water.

Two paws up!
I purchased this product because stainless steel is so much more sanitary than plastic and easier to keep clean. I was concerned about bacterial growth on our old plastic Drinkwell unit and had to clean it much more frequently than the new SS one. My only disappointment with the new one was that the unit is much bigger than it appeared to be in the photo and does not fit easily into my dishwasher. But my three cats each give it two paws up so their mom is satisfied!
