I really do not like to complain but I specifically picked this fountain because it was stainless steel and the fountain is so stained that it looks disgusting and I have to replace it. I even tried cleaning it with comet cleanser that works on all the other stainless steel animal bowls that I have but it does not remove the stains and discoloration. Also the fountain never had enough water pressure for the spount to have 4 streams. I get two at best with the third barely dribbling. Very disappointing at this price point.
This fountain looked great--but in reality, it is too big and clunky and is hard to clean. It has these clips to keep the big, clunky, heavy filter casing and fountain parts in place and they pop off super easy. That's a lot of fun and not at all aggravating (ooh, sarcasm). My cat figured out how to pop those clips off and he discovered they make a fun toy. When you plug this thing in after cleaning and refilling, the fountain thinks about whether or not it should work. So you have to get in there and futz around with the filter to get the water flowing. Exasperated, I just threw this thing out. It lasted three weeks before I decided this thing was a complete waste. For almost $80, you would think it would be a great product. "Now it's garbage." (with a a nod to the Odd Couple). Drinkwell, get this one back to the drawing board. What a ripoff.
At first, my two cats were a bit scared of this fountain. It's bigger and puts out a lot more water than their old one. Also, the Calico can't seem to figure out how to play in it, and make a huge mess. That's a win for me! So, easier to clean, and less mess from my "special" girl. She is truly a special kind of weird. That's what I love about her.
I have owned many PetSafe fountains over the years. My cats do like to drink from them... when the water is clean. I was hoping that the Stainless Steel fountain would get less gunky and be easier to clean than the plastic fountains. I was wrong. It still grows gunky mold in the pump and crevices within a few days. My cats love it, but will not drink once it gets dirty. I find it hard to put back together and the plastic clips do not work well. Now I just leave them off. But having to clean the whole thing and replace the 2 filters every week seems to defeat the purpose of the fountain.
Sadly, my cats did not take to the water fountain I would not drink water out of it. I must caution that the black plastic snaps that hold the cone to the ball do not instill confidence because they can easily be broken off. The amount of water that comes out of the fountain is very limited. Again, my cats absolutely refused to drink water out of this fountain. The stainless steel material though is excellent.
This fountain is a great improvement over the first Drinkwell we had purchased. The first one was plastic, hard to clean and not as sanitary. This new one being stainless steel is great. It is easy to asssemble and clean and my kitties will actually us it, that's a big plus.
I have a Maine Coon mix, he is extremely strong and likes to pick up water bowls with his mouth and drop them. This is the only one that doesn’t allow this because it doesn’t have a lip and also is too heavy. feel a bit bad for the Chewy’s rep who helped me because I know this is a really odd problem but they came through like a champ! I do have to clean the whole thing once a week, I think my boys are messy but the filters last a few weeks and overall it isn’t too loud or disruptive.
This is the worst purchase I've ever made on chewy and I buy from them monthly. My cat is actually sick right now. If you look at the photo, that is the gunk that builds up in the filter after 1 day. I am cleaning this giant thing that weighs a lot. I have to change the water everyday. What's the point of having a fountain with a filter
This water fountain isn't made as good as the old one that I had. The clips are very hard to get off and very hard to put on. It is a cheaper quality.
The pump is not pushing water with enough force to all the water up and out of the fountain part, was excited to set this up for my animals
