Rated 5 out of 5 by TheKids2 Excellent product!!
I've bought different water fountains a couple of times and this is by far the best!! It's quiet (not the quietest) as long as it has water in the reservoir, otherwise, it'll make a gurgling annoying sound. I particularly don't use the carbon filter as sometimes this leaves dust on the bottom, but it works wonders without it. I hope this fountain last me a few years just like the last one did!! Besides, this fountain in this site is way cheaper than amazon, petco, etx!!
Excellent product, I highly recommend it!!

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 5 out of 5 by ShareK Just the right size.
This is the second one I've purchased. I dropped the water holder on the first one and it cracked. This is quiet and not too difficult to clean which is a big plus. No splashing of water but enough movement to draw out kitty's attention.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SadSam2 Don't buy it cuz the pump is very noisy.
I recently purchased this water fountain for my kittys and the fountain is lovely to look at but the moment I plug it in the pump begins to hum and the longer it's plugged in the louder the pump hums. So, being an easy person to get along with, I purchased another pump from you and it did the same thing. Is there a quiet pump out there like the one I had with the old fountain? This new pump I bought was the exact same pump as the old one but something was different as it hums, too. That, my friends, is why I do not recommend purchasing the fountain. But, I do like Chewy. Perhaps, after finding this out they might investigate the matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Memex6 very nice and quite.
My cats love it. It is quite. The fountain is a slow flow which is great. Both of my cats drink from the fountain flow as well as the bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeiAnn MY CATS LOVE IT!
Both my cats love this fountain. The Burmese took to it right away, the Torte took about an hour to get used to it. Quiet, nice design, easy to clean, makes me love it too! Filters are SO reasonably priced. Needed them in San Diego badly, so many additives to the water there. Moved to Washington state last month, have well water here, much nicer tasting but still use filters as a precaution. Cats seem to drink more water and are quite healthy. Great product, great price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TessaBear Started leaking after a few months.
I got the largest size of this water fountain in March, and now it leaks so bad I am unable to use it. We can't even find where it is leaking from! It left the floor completely soaked. Tried taking it apart and putting it back together with no change. It still leaked. This one was the main water bowl for my four dogs so it was used and refilled a lot, but I feel like it should have lasted more than 4 months. I bought the medium sized one for my cats, and that one has held up well. But if you need a larger one that will be used a lot, I would go with something different.
