Rated 5 out of 5 by Lysis Great item. The cat loves it!
Highly recommend this product, especially due to the very fair price!
I found this item to be shipped well, packaged in a shipping box with zero damage to the packaging.
After a pleasant unboxing, setup was simple and what I expected. No batteries, it comes with an adapter to plug into the wall.
The product comes with 2 filters, which they claim will last for 2 months, so 1 filter / month. I'm guessing I can purchase more of the filters here, but I haven't researched the price of them yet.
Putting the pieces together was easy when the instructions are followed. Only took me a few minutes to set it all up after unboxing it.
The unit is quiet, barely audible unless you get right up next to it. The unit recycles and releases a steady stream of water, just enough to make the base pool ripple a little bit, which interested my cat (who only drinks from running water sources, he won't drink from a standard water dish).
My cat warmed up to his new water dish right away. He was not scared of it at all since it is very quiet.
Honestly, I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it is, since it was only about $20 before shipping, but I am pleasantly surprised at its quality for the cheap price.
I highly recommend this item: works great, practically silent, and is very inexpensive compared to comparable products.

Bought one of these many years ago. Pump wires finally broke. The price of the whole unit is so reasonable that I bought a new one. New rescue cat just loves it and it is great for encouraging him to drink more water. Also like that the water constantly filters.

I have a senior kitty with early kidney issues. The fountain is encouraging him to drink more and hopefully we can correct the kidney issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lake Good fountain for cats
I have been using the Petmate fountains for about 10 years now, this 108 oz one is the fourth I've purchased. With regularly cleaning, the pumps last 4+ years. I have four cats and keep two fountains running at opposite ends of the house. The pump is quiet emitting only a low hum unless the water level is too low in which case it gurgles obnoxiously. I've had no trouble with water leaking or splashing about.
The cats are drawn to the running water enticing them to drink sufficiently. That's my primary reason for using these. I don't bother with the filters at all; I run them without filters. Instead, I take them apart about every 10-14 days to be washed. Prior to washing, I put a dollop of bleach in and let the motor run for a couple of minutes. This helps eliminate the bacterial film that can form on the plastic.
Overall, the cats like the fountain, it's reasonably quiet, will last more than 4 years if well maintained, and requires regular cleaning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by stokie101 Steady and Noisy pump
assembly was easy but not sure about the white noise the pump made only after a day or 2 after installation. also made my cat a little hesitant in drinking from the well because of the noise it made.
any advice would be helpful.

Easy assembly. Solid material. Easy to fill. My cat drank from fountain as I was setting it up. She loves the waterfall.
