The fountain is dishwasher safe except for the motor and cord. Either wash in the top rack of your dishwasher or hand-wash these parts. If your dishwasher runs too hot, we recommend hand-washing. When hand-washing, use a bottle brush, aquarium brush, soft sponge, or brushes included in the Fountain Cleaning Kit and dish soap. (Please note: if you have the Avalon or Pagoda fountains, the filter housing is hand wash only. It is not dishwasher safe.)
Remove the motor from the fountain.
Lift the impeller (looks like a small white propeller) out of the motor. There may be a faceplate cover over the impeller than can be pulled up with a coin or fingernail. Wash the impeller in soapy water, removing hair and other gunk that has collected around it.
Pour soapy water inside the motor cavity and clean with a small round brush like the one found in the Fountain Cleaning Kit. A cotton swab or small toothbrush might work too, or anything that can reach all the way inside of the cavity.
Rinse all parts well before returning to the fountain.
Re-assemble fountain, replacing the filter and pre-filter as needed.
Place the fountain where desired. Fill with water. Re-plug in fountain.
I had been using similar brushes to clean my stainless steel Drinkwell fountain and motor. The different sizes work okay, but I still have to use a pipe cleaner to clean the inside of the tiny propellor thingamajig that rests inside the motor housing. I just use a sponge on the rest of the components and in hindsight didn't really need this set. Still useful though.
Looks sturdy and helpful

I haven’t used these yet but by looking at them I know they’re better and will fit into small spots much better than the terrible toothbrush we were scrubbing it with and trying to get into cracks with q-tips. Even if they aren’t perfect, they’re better and more efficient than anything we have.
Disappointed in Quality

I was happy to see this set, because I find it extremely difficult to get into the nooks and crannies of my cats waterer. Sadly, during the first use, the largest size broke inside the handle, so when you try to ‘push and twist’ inside the main area of the fountain, the handle turns, but the brush and sponge do not. Granted, the set was under $5, but I would’ve expected them to last longer than one use.

These brushes work well. The handles bend for hard to get places. The smaller brush works great on the lid to the water bottle
Second time buying these
on Jul 28, 2019
I absolutely love these brushes. I have two drink well fountains, different sizes. These brushes make cleaning so much easier, and you can see the clean! They fit perfectly it all the tiny places. This is my second time buying these because I had to replace the ones I did have.
Finally the right brushes
on Jul 6, 2019
I have searched so many stores to find brushes like these. My cat fountain has parts that a regular baby bottle or nipple brush just don't work. This is my first order with Chewy and I will be a returning customer. Shopping for those of us who stink at the computer was a breeze. My order qualified for free shipping, yea! And delivery so fast! I'l be back, Chewy.
Not Really for 360
on Aug 4, 2019
Only the small brush works on the 360 Drink well fountain and I still have to use q-tips fo smaller spaces. The large brush could also be used but then its too many parts and seems faster to use a paper towel.

They’re larger than I expected. I mainly wanted the smaller one since you can’t just buy one like it with the bristles also on the other end. The longer straight one is very long around 12 inches long so keep that in mind. The sponge one is just a normal size bottle brush nothing special. The shorter one though has bristles on the tip. Not a lot of them do so that’s why I got this. Overall, very good set to have when it’s “fountain cleaning day”
Pet Fountain Cleaning Kit

This pet fountain kit is wonderful. It can also be used to clean other items. I bought two of them.
Could be better

This set is good but the small brush, which fits into the corners and cleans them best, needs a longer handle. The mid size brush does not have bristles at the end so it can't clean along the edges at the bottom of the reservoir.
