This fountain is terrible. It wasn’t easy to clean, filters are expensive to replace and they don’t clean the water very well. Water pump hardly has any power to it. Of course the fountain stops working just after a year of purchase so it isn’t replaceable/refundable. And to replace just the motor is nearly as expensive as buying a whole new system. You get what you pay for.
This fountain works well when the motor doesn't go out. After 3 of these, I'm done. I keep them clean, always filled with water, so there's no reason the motor should burn out. This last time it was working fine, unplugged it to do my regular bi weekly cleaning, and when I plugged it back in, it no longer works. I tried everything, the power adapter works, just not the motor. Very disappointing.
I would have to agree that it is disappointing because my pump only lasted 6 months and 6 days. I followed the care instructions as indicated in the directions. Not sure if that's a standard for cat fountains??? Anyway the fountain was fine up until that point.
My six cats all love this fountain. I have two of them and they work great! I bought an extra pump to have on hand just in case, but almost two years later they are still going strong. With 6 cats using the fountains, I clean them weekly and change the filter every other week. I’m very happy with this product!!
On a whim I bought one for the upstairs bathroom. After realizing all the animals flocked to this fountain for drinks, I added another just for the cats, downstairs. They are very quiet except when the water is low, which is just a reminder to fill them! I would definitely recommend the extra filter box, as sponges in the set come as well, and you will want them as they do absorb a lot of impurities, or the random cat food piece. Your animal will be much healthier, as I have now read how cats are attracted to moving water to drink it. I always thought they were just odd when they would paw at the water and drink. Now I know!
I was becoming concerned that our cat was not drinking enough water. We bought this fountain and she loves it and has returned to her normal water consumption. I am so glad we bought this fountain.
I purchased this filter back in November 2021. I have two adult cats who took to it right away and I refill water weekly and do a deep clean every other week. I do agree that the filter is in a weird spot and hard to disassemble sometimes. But I'm a little surprised by the more negative reviews. This was my first water fountain and I really liked it and so did my cats. I had a bad run in with some ants at my apartment and I accidently got the USB port wet when washing and now (October 2022) the pump stopped. But I'm assuming it was my fault. My biggest complaints would be the hard calcification and build up around where the water sits, especially when I cleaned it so much. But I guess that's pretty standard with plastic. And the other thing is definitely the pump gets loud when the water is low. Kind of annoying. But overall. Not a bad pump and if I hadn't gone and got water in the usb I think it would have lasted a while longer.
We liked this a lot but the pump broke unexpectedly after 6 months. I dont know if this is the expectation for this product but I definitely wanted it to last longer. Now I have extra filters that will not work in another product which is annoying
My two cats have been using this for a couple of weeks. One of the issues I had was them playing in the water bowl- with this they do that less. It is not loud and it doesn't have a lot of pieces to clean. My only concern is the lid doesn't snap on securely but fits a bit loosely- but at this point it has not caused any concerns.
I have tried several different fountains over time and have always come away disappointed. This one is different...it appears to be working as promised. My two cats adapted to it after a couple of days and they are drinking more water than previously with using just a water dish.
