Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain
The reservoir is easy to fill and insert inverted into the bowl. Just pull the stem on the reservoir cap up to seal it before inverting; and then slide it into the back of the bowl frame. The pump is quiet and the water flow has a variable adjustment. The pump is situated before the filter so it will need cleaning periodically. This is easy to do; just snap the pump out and flush with water. Easy!

Great Fountain but must be properly cleaned often
I share my life with two dogs and eight cats. The Pet Fountain does stimulate their desire to drink water (and play with water :) which is much healthier for them. I recommend it highly.
It is essential that the fountain is disassembled and thoroughly disinfected frequently otherwise germs circulate throughout the assembly and debris can buildup in the pump, channels, etc.
The magnetic impeller must be removed from the pump and cleaned since fur and food can accumulate inside which will cause contamination as well as burn out the motor.
Obviously, cleaning the fountain takes much more time than using a water bowl. If you do not want to add to your cleaning chores, do not buy this, But if you love your furry children as much as I love mine, order it immediately!!!

5 Stars...fast ship...great product!!!
Love this fountain for my kitties!! This is my second one. The fountain has a great motor that keeps the water moving so it is always cool and clean. The large reservoir allows for days of fresh water. Great for cats that won't drink from a bowl!!
The filters are a must...best price I've found is here!

Now it is easy to keep fresh water for my pets
I started looking for a fountain pet water fountain when I was taking care of my sister's dog during its last days of life. He had stopped eating but he would drink water but only if it was fresh. I had read about the health benefits of water that was circulated and filtered so I thought I would give the fountain a try for my dogs and cat. The cat loved it from the start, drinking from the stream. One dog was comfortable drinking from the basin right away, but the other dog was a little scared of the running water. I unplugged it for a couple of days so she could get used to drinking from it. Now she loves the fountain as much as the others.

After returning 2 other water fountains that I had bought from the local pet store because they were so loud, I was nervous to try a third time. But I am sure glad I did! This model works perfectly and is not loud at all. I bought this for my cat who loves to drink water out of the faucet. He refuses to drink water out of his bowl and I was worried he wasn't drinking enough. This was the answer.....I notice him drinking from it all the time. Thank you for a great product at a great price!

Excellent price and quality!!!
I have a home w/ multiple cats and I needed a fountain large enough for them all to drink. I found this product many places but none could offer a such a great price. It works just as described and is easy to clean. I love it but my cats adore it. The trickling water affect convinces my cats they need to drink more, which is awesome. I am very pleased w/ this product and would definitely recommend this to all my friends and family.

hard to clean
yes, it is quiet, my cats like drinking from it. But it needs to be better designed.
All kinds of little hard to get at spots that fill up with scum!!

It took a couple of weeks, but now she loves it.
It took a couple of weeks, but now she loves it. She ignored it altogether for a while, but following her first successful drink of fresh flowing water, she keeps coming back for more.
