I’ve spent lots of money over the years buying water fountains only for Patches (pictured) to play with them vs actually drink water from them. This one is different. It’s taller so he can’t play with it as easily but he loves drinking out of it. I have several cats, plus 2 dogs and all my pets enjoy it. You would think it would get dirty fast from multiple pets, but it doesn’t. I only replace the filter & deep clean it out every 3 to 4 weeks. This one works 10 times better than the high priced stainless steel ones.
I never write reviews but I've bought the first one and the pump didn't work at all, it spat out some dust into the water and stopped running altogether. Chewy was kind enough to send me a replacement and same issue, set the bowl up, got the pump in there, and it was incredibly loud for about ten seconds, spat out white powder (maybe dust?), and stopped working. I've had many water fountains before, I know its no issue with the power or incompetence. I wanted to try out this brand. Definitely don't recommend.
Took my cat months to finally use it, and now it's his preferred water dish. However, I can't recommend it. The filters are supposed to be changed frequently and they are not cheap. I have very hard water so this isn't an optional thing. Instead I've used the coffee filter trick and just tossed those every week instead of buying and tossing a proper filter every month. And today, after about a year after purchasing, the pump has died. Will I spend the $10 to replace the pump? Probably. Do I wish I'd gotten something different? Sure do.
Ok, we all know how picky every cat is. I bought a cool water fountain (to me) a while ago. I think I was being too eager to get them to use it, and of course I got the paw they would not go near it. I played it cool this time and ignored it and ignored them when they were semi checking it out, it worked! This one is a winner, all day long. The two cats I have now have never experienced a water fountain before. I know how great it can be if they enjoy the device. This one is amazing. I am so happy to hook my cats up with fresh flowing water. They are minimally to not impressed. :D
So my cats have been using this fountain for at least a year. They absolutely love it, but one of my cats likes to play with water and had to ruin it for everyone. A while ago she figured out how to pull the inserts out, which is annoying on it's own, but she has now taken to tipping the entire fountain over. My floor is soaked and I am a renter 🙃 I could velcro the fountain to the mat, but it still won't stop her from taking the thing apart everyday and still making a mess. My cats have downgraded to a water dish until further notice. Hoping to find another fountain that is more cat-proof. If you have a mischievous cat who likes to play with water, good luck! 🙂
The entire filter grew mold so fast. I cleaned the water bowl with soap and water every two days and it still grew the most disgusting red mold. I only have one cat and I saw her drink out of it one or two times (always preferred a bowl to the fountain but I figured offering both would be best). I tossed it. I have no idea how people maintenance this so maybe I just did it wrong but its way too much of a hassle. I'll just be grateful she drinks from her water bowl.
This is a winner for us. Kitty Kat was messing with our little humidifier (licking) so I thought we would try this. She really likes it. It's quite to me. Haven't changed the filter yet, will do that today. Sounds like it shouldn't be a problem from most of the reviews I have read. And the foundation got here super fast as usual. Thank you Chewy 😊
My cats really like this fountain. This product is really necessary for us. It’s super quiet until it starts to get empty and then that’s when you know you need to refill it. Never refill it by dumpling water into it when it’s running. That is how you break it. You need to take it apart and clean it out, including the filter and then refill it and put it back together. It’s very easy to assemble. I have no handy skills and I can do it so don’t worry. I have two cats and only have to refill it once a week. I’m very glad I purchased this.
My cats honestly barely use the thing and prefer their water bowls like the absolute weirdos they are. But this is simply their own quirks and not a reflection of the product. Its affordable, easy to use, and a cute design. To anyone owning cats who like running water, which is most, I recommend it as a budget purchase.
I was hesitant to buy this. I looked online at many fountains, discouraged that the better ones (ceramic, steel) were costly and reviewers said the pumps would break. I finally ordered this one because of the low price, I figured if it breaks then I'm out $20. However it has worked well. I like that the filter can be cleaned and re-used, and I haven't had any trouble with the pump. It's not as quiet as I'd like, but it's not loud either. Unfortunately it has not encouraged my cat to drink more water. In 1 month I've only seen him drink from it once. This is why I bought it... he doesn't drink enough water, and I thought this would help. But, the fountain works well. I would still recommend it.
