Does this fountain use the newer model pump? The blue and black one. My old one (it died) was a different type.
Answer by sparkyFeb 15, 2022
The blue and black one is labeled as the Original Drinkwell fountain pump replacement so I believe it is compatible with the original fountain.

Can the pump be replaced rather than having to re-purchase this water fountain?
Answer by ChewyOct 25, 2017
Drinkwell does manufacture a replacement pump for the new model of the Drinkwell Original Fountain.

How do you clean the pump? It doesn't come apart but gunk is starting to buildup in it.
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2017
To clean the pump you must first remove the motor from the fountain.Lift the impeller out of the motor. There may be a faceplate covering the impeller than can be pulled up with a coin or fingernail. Wash the impeller in soapy water .Pour soapy water inside the motor cavity and clean with a small round brush or anything that can reach all the way inside of the cavity.

Can I adjust the water flow rate?
Answer by ChewyMay 29, 2021
This fountain includes an adjustable flow control to increase or decrease flow of water. Please check the image for reference.

Water fountain for my cat

This is my third Drinkwell water fountain. Twelve years ago I purchased my first Drinkwell water fountain. My 2 cats really liked drinking from it, so I purchased a second one to put upstairs. My last cat passed away 10 months ago at the age of 17, and I decided it was time to retire the water fountains. I've just recently adopted another rescue cat, and decided it was time to buy a new water fountain. Since I had so much luck with the first 2 fountains I decided on another Drinkwell fountain. I found the newer versions easier to clean, so that is a plus. My new cat adjusted to drinking out of the fountain very quickly, and I know it is healthier for him to be getting water from the fountain that is moving and filtering all the time, verses water sitting in a bowl for 24 hours or more. My suggestion would be to buy a Drinkwell fountain if you are considering the purchase of a water fountain.

Pretty Nice Sound

I had a smaller Drinkwell that fell. This one is good for the price. It has a wide base. My cat likes to look at the 2-3 bubbles that form. And she enjoys drinking from it. I have it in the kitchen and it makes a soothing-water-trickling- fountain sound, ( not like the others that make that wah angry motor).

first time buyer

This is the first water fountain I've ever used. My new cats took to it pretty well, especially the one that was always trying to drink from any sink in the house. However the flow control handle doesn't seem to work at all. I would prefer if the flow was a little slower. Also it seems pretty noisy. I'm using spring water in it because the water here is dreadful, imo. It seems well made and looks to be easy to take care of.

Best water fountain

This is the 2nd time I have bought a Drinkwell. I bought one back in 2003. The motor in this one is so much better. My cats love it. My dog has now started sneaking in and drinking up all the water.

My cats love it!

We have four of these fountains and our cats love them! This one is a replacement for one we have had for over 10 years and it was still working but was beginning to look old. Cats love the moving water and tend to drink more water.

Wish all things were made this well!

We’ve had our Drinkwell fountain for about 4 years, and have never had any problem with it ‘till recently, when the pump gave out. Our kitties love drinking from it, so I’m sure they’re getting plenty of water. I’m online ordering a new one right now, because we were so happy with the first one. Be Kind :)

Replacement improved.

I have used a Drinkwell Pet Fountain for well over a decade and been very happy with it, as have all my cats. It is especially reassuring when I trave even though I have a pet sitter. The small turning handle finally gave out so I ordered a replacement. This one is easier to clean, and the handle looks sturdier but otherwise the same and my kitty and I both like it.

Drink More, Hiss Less!

I have had numerous water fountains over the years and this is the absolutely best one. All the others (except this model in larger size) got hot at the electrical plug in point. So I never felt safe leaving them plugged in. This one is purrfect for my kitty and if I still had two kitties I believe it would be just right for multi-cats as well. This fountain emits surprisingly strong, and very pleasant water stream sounds. Our home is quite small and it is not loud but very nice.

Long life fountain.

I had this same fountain in use for well more than two years before the pump quit working. The pet store where it was bought said there isn't a replacement pump, so I threw it all away with the intent to replace the fountain. I bought a different style of the same brand name from Chewy, but the cats do not like the new one very well. At least for now that is. I am now ordering this same design to replace the old one, and it will be placed in a different room, so they will have two watering holes. I already keep a bowl of water, and food out in this room, as well as multiple litter pans. I have been quite pleased with this fountain. It has a large bowl area too. I'm sure you will be satisfied. My cats will occasionally knock the lid off of it and drink from there too. Goofy Animals! In short, I was quite satisfied with this fountain's longevity, and the cats liked this one better than the newer version. I sure do wish I had looked here for a replacement pump first. Well... I'm off to the check-out now.
