does this slow the dog done when drinking. mine drinks so fast he throws up.
Answer by ShannonJun 22, 2021
There is a well for the fountain to pour into, and while there is a buffer, if you dog does drink a lot at once, this product wouldn’t hinder him at all. So unfortunately not

Mine overflows when I fill the reservoir, am I doing something wrong does anyone have any suggestions defeats the purpose of that holding a gallon
Answer by ChewySep 30, 2017
The Platinum fountain is overflowing due to the reservoir not equalizing and emptying all of the water into the bowl. The Platinum would overflow only if air has access to enter freely. If air is entering the reservoir, the water will not equalize and the reservoir will begin to overflow the fountain. The way air would have access is if the reservoir is damaged, or if there is an air leak caused by a hairline fracture or crack in the reservoir plastic. Troubleshoot a leaking fountain, or purchase a new reservoir.

How often should I replace the filter?
Answer by ChewyFeb 21, 2022
Filters help extend the life of your fountain and pump and should be replaced every 2 to 4 weeks.

Going on vacation for a week, will this be safe plugged in and will it be enough water for one cat?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2017
On average a cat will drink 4 ounces of water per day. This will hold 168 ounces of water. It is safe to leave this plugged in for extended periods of time.

Best pet water fountain I have ever had.

I owned this model for 10+ years with no problem with the fountain or the pump driving it. Then came the monthly cleaning, and I ended up doing unrepairable damage and my seven cat furbabies were very mad at daddy for the few days it took for the replacement to arrive. This model will give you years of service with just a little PM every month. Just drain the water and clean it with warm soapy water. Clean any pet hair from the intakes of the pump, then break it down to the impeller and finish getting all that hair from the moving parts. The pump is a simple impeller-driven pump, much like what is the driving force of most fire engines. If you don't want to do the PM every month, just contact me in six months to a year when you decide to sell it in your yardsale, I'll give you $5.00 for it... LOL

So far, so good!

I have a cat who wants to drink out the bathroom sink, so I decided to try this plus I have 2 other cats and a large dog. The dog has her own water bowl, but she likes this fountain too and will use it now and then, however, the 3 cats LOVE it. I’ve never seen them drink so much before and the 2 of the 3 drink of the fountain, the other one just drinks from the bottom. It’s pretty easy to put together, refill and clean…it’s not loud at all, like some reviews I read, so I think those others must just have issues. It’s pretty quiet. Give it a try.

Flooding my kitchen

I have to admit to loving this watering fountain. I have purchased two of them over the years. The first one stopped pumping the water (the pump was working because I could hear it but the water wouldn't pump. I called and complained and the lady at Chewy said the water container must have a hairline crack. So I purchased that part and it was a little better but still had problems. Then a few months ago it quit altogether and I bought a different model at the pet store. That one was a total piece of CR*P! So I came back to Chewy and ordered this one again. I have only had it about a month and when I get up this morning, my kitchen is flooded. For some reason, the pump has pumped all the water OUT of the basin. It's now ALL OVER MY KITCHEN FLOOR. You tell me, is that an acceptable way to work?

House favorite

Works incredibly well. Our 60lbs dog is not interested, I assume because of the small stream but it is perfect for our two cats. They’re drinking a lot more water since we brought this into our home and I enjoy hearing their little tongues lap it up or watching the water fall on top of their heads as the drink from the pooled water. We believe this purchase has been our greatest pet investment. (For anyone worried about how to clean it with it’s tight corners, just use a skinny straw cleaner!)

Wonderful fountain. Has run constantly 6 yrs. except for 1 hr cleaning 1x week.

I have 2 rescued cats. #1 we found in bushes behind our home. She was a spit fire at 5 weeks and has always been comfortable playing in water. (our back yard was a lake). Believe she was of a feral mother & only survival of a hawk attack. #2 was born in a shelter & had foster care got her at 12 weeks. They are the same age. They both drink from sink faucets when they can. They play in and drink from this fountain. We had to place the fountain in a plastic tray to keep the floor dry. Our tray is a hot water tank tray from hardware store, but could use a plastic rabbit cage replacement tray. Purchasing a second fountain.

Works for Cats that Like to play with the water bowl

I have a kitten that likes to move water bowls and get water all over the place so I had bought a small water fountain hoping that would work but she could still move that one. Couldn't tip it over like the water bowls but could still move around and get water all over so I asked one of the phone operators what he might suggest and he suggested this one. This one is perfect. It's heavy enough she can't move it at all. I have trouble moving it myself even, but that's fine. Now she just plays in it, which is hilarious but I don't end up with water all over the place and the dish in another spot. Some of the cats like drinking from the fountain part and others like to drink from the bowl. The back has a removeable water reserve and that helps me make sure they have plenty of clean water without having to move the rest of it and the little one gets to get herself all wet without making a mess LOL

Great fountain, but sometimes...

So I have been using this fountain for several months now for my five cats. I adore it, but it has one large downfall. It kinda "dams" up and begins to leak EVERYWHERE. It creates such a large mess that, if I had different flooring, I'd probably have to replace it by now. So because of that large issue, I'm rating this three stars. It's a great fountain and my cats took to it easy, but the damming issue is huge. I won't purchase another of the same for my second fountain when the time comes.

I've had this for over two years.

I have had this fountain for over 2 years! My dogs have sucked the water dry more times than I'd like to admit, but the pump has never gave out! My cats love to drink from the stream. My cats are faucet drinkers which is actually why I initially purchased this. My farm of 7 love this, and I love that it provides moving fresh water!

pets cannot live without this

Water lasts a week after cleaning. We have 4 brats. And they love it so much, when I'm cleaning it, which is much easier than the original Drinkwell fountain, they're staring at us, like hurry up. It's worth it, esp. because the water is always fresh. And I see comments about spilling over. You have to follow the filling instructions - only put water where filter is, and a little in front area only, about a half inch, then let back reservoir do the rest. It's never overflowed, and when water runs low, we can hear difference, and so can pets, who come and get us to add water. :-)

I purchased this fountain for my two pit bulls for Christmas, and was not disappointed! This new Fountain is large enough for the 2 of them and the water is constantly filtered out by a carbon filter included with fountain. My 2 full grown dogs love it they drink from the falling water to the basin. I had purchased in the past a different fountain that the filtration system burned out. This one is very quiet. I just can hear the sounds of the water falling. Very quiet compared to the other I had. Very well worth the price and the description is as advertised. I would absolutely recommend this product!
