I have the square frisco fountain. I have 3 cats so I stretch the filter out to at least 2 weeks maybe 3 and than its gross. I use bottled water as our town suggests. Yes, the little square spongy thing comes in the box with the filters. One sponge per filter. Be aware that you will not find these filters IN any Pet store or on Amazon. They are a chewy item. Make sure you have them on hand or you may end up paying shipping through chewy without a large order. Hope this review is informative. :)
Was very happy to see both included! I believe it’s 1 sponge every 2 filter changes, which makes sense since the sponge is still cleans after my first filter change. I chose to change my filter once a week since I have many cats, it may differ depending on how many cats you have but recommended I believe is every 2 weeks. Great product! Catches everything it should to keep water filtered!
Product working as intended. FYI: each filter also comes with a foam pre-filter (not mentioned in description). The reason I am not giving 5 stars is the slightly misleading pricing. I purchased a count of 12 as well as a 3 count bundle of 4. Since the bundle of 4 is nearly double the price of the 12 count, I did not take note of the description and assumed I would be getting double 12, brining the total order to 36 filters. Instead, I received 1 box with 12 filters and 4 separate boxes each with 3 inside, bringing the total order to 24 filters. Part of the fault is certainly on my end for not carefully reading the description, but Chewy should take action to correct the pricing.
Works fine for the Frisco fountains that are listed. Nearly all the negative reviews are people either reviewing the fountain for some reason or who bought filters without checking if it fits their non-Frisco fountains. Guess what? It probably doesn't. Note the package DOES include both the filters the semicircular carbon filters pictured and the small square filters for the pump. Chewy incorrectly answered this question in the Q&A section.
My baby cat likes the new fountain and these filters fit perfectly. My senior cat is not interested so far, but I hope it will encourage her to drink more water.
My kitties love this fountain. They live drinking the moving water at the top of the fountain and seem to be drinking more often.
This filter pack is helpful to have on had to keep our pets water bowl fresh. We love the fountain and the pets love it too.
I ordered 12 months of filters for my cat's water fountain. She loves the fountain. I love Chewy's accuracy and fast response.
We were in desperate need of some new filters for my kittens water fountain. Cheer recommended these to me and they fit perfectly! Thank you Chewy!!
These filters and the fountain they go with are by far the best I've used, I highly recommend.
