Rated 5 out of 5 by Sixcatsbklyn So far so good!
We had a drinkwell fountain for years but it was very loud. This has been fantastically quiet so far and I like the black color. Our cats don't seem to mind the water flowing down the middle as opposed to the trickle from the drinkwell one. In fact I've noticed a line at the water fountain lately(we have six cats)
I recommend. Especially since it's such a good price as well!

This is our 2nd Fresh Flow we have had. First one lasted for many years until pump went out. Bought a new black one and love it. Expect it to last for many more years. No splash and water is always fresh for our pets. Also large reservoir so don't have to fill constantly.

The Petmate Deluxe Fresh Flow Water Fountain works very well. My two cats started using it immediately. Motor is quiet. I change the water every couple of days and wash the bowl weekly.

This is my third Petmate Fountain. I really like the design, and so do my cats. It does encourage them to drink more water.

I had one of these identical fountains for many years. It was beginning to have a few broken parts. I decided to order a new one from Chewys.com. The cats love drinking from the fountain. The fountain does need to be cleaned occationally which I clean with vinegar mixed with water. We have high calcium in our water here.
Chewys.com and Brittany have provided excellent customer service. I will be using them again.

My order arrived very quickly from Chewy. I was surprised how quick it was. Product was very easy to put together and was exactly as labeled. My cat are drinking more water than previously.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CatsInCalif Inconvenient to fill & clean
Had 108oz version. After a couple of years I HAD to find a different kind because SUCH a pain to fill and clean.
Filling: Needs frequent refills if only refill water bowl and don't use water-holding insert (part you see as clear in the pic, 'water bottle'#.
To fully fill it you PRY #yes, pry# and jiggle off the top lid, unscrew water bottle cap, fill it thru the nickel size hole, screw cap back on, insert it back into bowl after turning upside down, and snap the top lid back on. It may not sound too bad, but it gets old real quick.
Cleaning: all that and MORE to clean it; lots of nooks and crannies; should be done regularly to avoid the slimy and scaly part. #Cleaning after spraying with vinegar and waiting 10 minutes helped calcium buildup come off, but can't soak it because of size.#
I later bought cleaning brushes which helped with the nooks and crannies, but some parts STILL quite tough to clean. #If you buy this - buy the brushes at the same time. Trust me, you'll need them.#
Otherwise... worked consistently and the cats were fine with it. But I wouldn't use it again even if it were free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sacramentalcats Works good 13 -14 cats like the fountain
A little more work to clean, Still trying to get replacement reservoirs which seem to last about 18 months. Recently upgraded to largest size for 1 room with 10 cats in it and it works great. They were going about 12 hours between refills on the std size water fountain. With larger size it lasts 24 hours with plenty to spare.
