Questions & Answers

does this slow the dog done when drinking. mine drinks so fast he throws up.
Answer by ShayJun 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

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.

Is there a filter included with the fountain to get it set up initially?
Answer by ChewyNov 29, 2017
The Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain includes a replaceable carbon water filter.

great fountain

Our pup was not drinking enough water but loved running water from the tub or outside after a storm so I decided to bite the bullet and buy a fountain. I’m so glad I did! I am confident that he is now getting enough water and he loves that it stays cool and fresh since it’s in motion! This fountain is a hit in our house with the dogs as well as the cats! It’s a little hard to clean in places but I bought a bottle brush (one you use for baby bottles) it’s round so it gets in all the tough spots!

Looks nice but full of hard corners and deep wells

This fountain will accumulate gunk, filth, and slime that is nearly impossible to keep clean due to the way it is constructed. The tower is all sharp corners in a deep & narrow pocket so you can't reach the bottom to clean the corners. The base in front has a ramp that also has a narrow and difficult to clean space between the ramp and the back of the piece. The pumps flow-control lever is a long hollow tube that's really hard to clean, assuming you even realize it needs cleaning. This tube can hide a 3-4-inch plug of algae, bacteria, and hair making the cleaning effort for all the rest of the fountain useless. The solution is to completely flush the water to keep clean water in this fountain every few days, which defeats the point of getting a large-capacity fountain because you'll have to clean it before the reservoir even needs refilling.

I really like this fountain. The price isn’t too bad. My two cats and puppy love it. It does get noisy when the water is low, but I like it cos it lets me know to refill the water. The huge problem is that this is my second one. They seem to die pretty quickly. If you’re looking for something that lasts this isn’t it.

Great product and value

Recently had the pump in our old Drinkwell fountain start making noise. Since the unit was 10 years old decided to replace instead of repair. Price and shipping from Chewy were great! Only complaint is water is louder than old unit. Need to see if adjustment at pump will quiet it down.

stopped working in a month

After a month (or less) we filled the tank and it completely emptied out all of the floor. We are sad because our furbabies really liked this. But this isn’t going to work and now there water all over the floor

Too much noise

I ordered this back in October, and it was perfectly fine and pretty quiet. Four months later… and it makes an weird buzzing or humming type of sound. It’s not loud enough to the point where I feel like I’m going insane, but it’s definitely slightly annoying.

Great product

The fountain cord is 6ft long from plug to pump the average appliance cord length. The filter only has to be changed every 3 to 4wks, and if you clean your dog bowl like most pet owners do you can probably extend that. The pump sometimes does not build enough suction up the first time you plug it into the wall, just unplug the pump, wait 30sec, and plug it back in. Also cleaning the pump every week or two will actually keep the pump from breaking. Hair, drool, dirt, and debris get caught on the pump screen and must be removed or the buildup will stop flow and burn up the motor eventually. If your water flow decreases clean your pump. The pump has flow settings to reduce noise level but it is a fountain of running water purpose being to provide clean drinking water to your pets. I am sure there are instances of faulty equipment but these fountains are great if well maintained.

Great For A Few Months

This items is great for a few months then stops working! There is nowhere to actually purchase a new motor for it. Waste of time and money! Overly priced for a poorly functioned product!

Great Fountain

I bought this fountain in 2020. It's been running everyday since. No problems, still looks new. My cats love it!
