Very important to clean the plastic parts at least once a week! Also, make sure to change up the filters at least once a month! This thing only makes much noice when the water level gets low, so make sure that you look at the water level in at least every couple days and add more when it gets a little low. My cats love this thing and are drinking lots more wate than they used to once I got this fountain for them
I can't rave enough about this fountain. I just bought my 3rd one of these. I've had the other 2 for years. They're a bit tedious to clean, but with the cleaning kit it's easy enough. My 50 lb dogs are messy drinkers and my cats are picky about their water. This works great to filter out all the nasties from the dogs and make it acceptable for the cats to drink from. It saves me from have to fill several bowls all day long. Less work on my part, and everyone has fresh water.
Its just a nuisance to clean everytime with all the little nooks and crannies involved in each piece it's so annoying and it DOES get dirty especially since the filters have a 50/50 chance of being defective and causing nasty pink residue remnants to get EVERYWHERE inside the darn thing and especially in the little annoying creases and stuff. My cats stopped drinking out of it a few months back and won't touch it now so likely its got some nasty stuff in the pump or something that you can't even get out. Don't bother with it.
My cats rule their kitchen so I have their fountain on their counter which they love. It is cute as it's a flower and they love drinking from it plus it is easy to clean, I do not find any of the problems which some other reviewers have found. I have 5 cats who use this fountain so water is added daily. Thank you Chewy and Catit Flower.
Very noisy and does not hardly put any water out the flower and you can't fill it up under the flower because then the top floats and even less water comes out. Spend a little extra for a better quality one because the other one I got is amazing and my cats love it!!
Although this fountain is cute, and my dogs and cats don't splash too much when drinking from it, CLEANING IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. There are so many nooks and crannies, especially on the flower part that are impossible to get at. I've tried using a boba straw brush but it's not quite wide enough to really scrub at it. I can visibly see gunky buildup in the flower stem, and I'm just not able to use this product anymore safely. I have tried to deep clean it regularly (2x/week) to prevent buildup but it's just not enough. I'll be looking for a fountain with less components next.
The Kats seem to like it. The old one lasted one year. Which is good for an inexpensive fountain. The pump goes bad. But, the plastic container gets coated with hard water in my area. So replacing the pump and leaving the crusty plastic is a No Brainer. I throw away the filter, it's just another object to collect bad things. Change the water every 3-4 days.
This fountain gets super slimy it seems. I need to replace the filters bi-weekly more often than less. 8 months into use, the motor runs extremely loud where I can’t keep it plugged in due to noise and my cats are scared of it. I’d look for an alternative fountain if possible.
It's adorable and the window to show the water level is nice. The municipal water in my area is not good, so the idea of having a water filter was nice, since the gravity waterer I had would get slimy. Unfortunately, the pump is extremely loud and the a/c adapter stays hot. I'm not sure how returns work with Chewy, but will be looking in to it after I submit this review.
It’s a little noisy so don’t put it in your bedroom. Also made of cheap plastic so parts can get bent or broken easily. Does not want to give the full fountain effect, mostly dribbles. Cat still drinks from it so I guess it works.
