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!

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.

My dogs enjoy it, although it took one of them a few days to warm up to it, but she tends to be somewhat skittish in general. Now she has no issues drinking out of it. My only complaint is that the filter is supposed to be replaced every 2 weeks - a bit frequent, could see this getting annoying - and it doesn't seem to hold all that much water. I haven't measured carefully, but I'm not sure it really holds a full gallon without filling it to the very brim (which would make a mess). Consequently, we still seem to have to add water multiple times a day for our two mid-sized dogs, to make sure it doesn't get too low for the pump to run properly.

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.

Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain
I love this fountain, its a tad bulky, however, my cats are super fincky about drinking water. I bought this drinkwell because my female calico has been diagnosed with numerous bladder stones. She is on medication and a dissolution diet. The vet's first order was to get her to drink more water. I bought this drinkwell not knowing that my cats would absolutely love this fountain. Both my male and female cats sit and drink from this thing all day long. One of my best purchases. As always the chewy website is fabulous in advertising the product.
