Rated 1 out of 5 by CatMom Water comes out too fast & all over the floor!
I bought this in the half-gallon size for my two cats, along with the matching feeder. I really really wanted to love this. I thought the idea of the filtered water was great, and the reviews were glowing. Perhaps I got a bad one, but as soon as I put the tank in the bowl, it fills extremely fast and doesn't stop until the water is all over the floor. I even tried blocking two of the holes, which succeeded in helping the water flow slower, but it still didn't stop until the bowl overflowed. I finally took the tank off, and am just using the bowl until I get a different waterer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MuppetMom Great but no dishwasher
I put the clear tank in the dishwasher. It melted, so avoid that. Otherwise this watering device works great for our cats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deidre Worked fine, but my (weird) dogs did not like it.
I have two large dogs, and with the one gallon size I was able to give them enough water for one day without having to refill it more than once a day. The bowl was too small for both to drink at the same time, but that was not really an issue. However, after a few weeks, even though we washed the entire waterer every day or so, the dogs did not like the water and would seek other sources. I tried removing the charcoal filter and they started drinking it again for a short while, then stopped again. Maybe microban has a smell or taste to them.

My beyond picky cat loves drinking out of this bowl. Not only that but the bubbles it shoots up keep her entertained! My dog also drinks from the same bowl and although a bigger one might be more ideal for two pets. The 1gallon lasts about 2 days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TameraAnn Like the idea of filtered water
We have a Chihuahua, a Chiweenie, and a Basenji/Rat Terrier mix, and they go through the gallon of water in a couple of days. I like that this one does not seem to bubble when they drink from it, since our Chihuahua liked the bubbles in our last one so she kept scooping the water out with her paws all over the floor. The only thing I do not like about this is taking it apart is a little difficult for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynn Works good
This is a small 2.5 gallon water compared to the last one I had.
The little clip that holds the filter comes undone when I put the jug on the dish and floats in the tank until it is empty.
Besides that is works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GWooten Great, but...
It's a bit smaller than I expected. I know, I know it clearly says 1/2 gallon, but that doesn't really describe the size dog that size is effective for. My two 65 lb dogs' faces are almost too big for the little bowl.
Other than that, it works well and they do still use it! It's easy to clean and I don't have to fill the water bowls nearly as often. When it's really hot outside, I can add ice cubes and since they float up under the water bottle insert, it keeps their water extra cool without them digging in the bowl to chase the ice cubes about.
