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.
This little kit was fantastic. The best part for me was that it included instructions on how to disassemble the pump for cleaning. I feel very guilty now at how gross that pump was, but the brushes were perfect for getting into all the nooks and crannies.
This cleaning out made the job easy!

I had my fountain for a week. I noticed there was a little charcoal ring in the bowl. So I decided to clean it. I watched a video on YouTube how to do it. So glad I bought this it was a time saver. It was back up and running in 5 minutes.So easy to use. I couldn't have done a complete cleaning with out it.
You're supposed to clean it??

I've had my fountain for years and until it started making a high pitched grinding/squealing noise, I had no idea you were supposed to take it apart to clean it. Oops. Somehow it is still working and my maintenance of it has drastically improved.
They work great !

I've been trying to use a regular bottle brush and it just wasnt doing the job. I saw these on Chewy website and didnt hasitate to order. I love them and it cuts the time of cleaning in half

These work great for cleaning pet water fountains. Cats prefer to have moving water and drink more when you have a water fountain.
I've been doing it wrong for years

I hadn't seen these in stores, but saw it on Chewy for pretty cheap, so I added it to my order. We've used the Drinkwell Platinum fountain for years, and neither adult in the house ever looked forward to cleaning it. These brushes make it a breeze and do a thorough job. Get it! Get it! Get it!
Made Life WAY Easier

I've been using the Drinkwell fountains for years now and had been getting by on the usual items I have to clean dishes and whatnot. I had been meaning to buy this kit, but never went for it until my first Chewy order (get that free shipping, yo). I'm so glad I ordered this kit! It cleans all of the components exactly how they are supposed to be cleaned with the correct tools. I've used it several times now to clean my fountains and it is holding up nicely. A good set to have if you're a Drinkwell fan!
Scrub the scum!

I use these on my clowder's fountain. They work great. With the various sizes, you're able to get into all the nooks and crannies. I'm glad I purchased these. They are made to last.
Brushes are too big so they are ineffective

It is a nice set of brushes, there is no disputing that; however there is only one brush that works for my ceramic pagoda fountain and my pioneer pet raindrop fountain and it's the smallest one. If you have a larger fountain they may be perfect for you. I just want to state again they are made very well, just not the right sizes.

The smaller brushes are perfect to clean the tight spaces on the fountain.
Pets need fresh clean water too!
