The original pump that came with the water bowl lasted almost 2 years with zero issues. It finally stopped working and I purchased a replacement, which worked for 2 days and then stopped. Figured it may have been a fluke, bought another one and had the same issue. I'm seeing other reviewers had the same problem, so sadly it may just be time for us to find another water bowl. I'm really disappointed since my dogs loved this one, but the replacement pumps simply don't work more than 2 days.
Okay pump .

So unfortunately I have to replace this part like every 6 months. It’s a good fountain but I can’t tell if it’s the pump part or the fountain itself that keeps causing the issue. Might have to spend the extra money for a better fountain
great pump and water bowl !!

I love the ceramic Pioneer water bowl. My dogs (chihuahuas and we know how finickythey can be ) love the water and drink more now then before. Although you still need to wash the water bowl and pump out routinely to assure it is clean and free of debris, the pump still works 24/7. It is important to keep the white disk that houses the pump covered with water, if you do that it works perfect but if not you will make pump work harder. The pump started to slow down on circulation and sounded week. It was more reasonable to purchase pump because bowl was still in great condition.
These pumps are terrible

I have to keep buying these because they fit the fountain my pets use or I wouldn't buy them again. The one that came with the fountain lasted the longest at around 6 months. The last one I bought lasted less than 2 weeks.
Large dog it

You carry the pump. For the large dog it foundation. Not the dome dog it. Your rep went out of her way and found it at another pump company
Quiet & works well

The replacement pump for our Pioneer Pet Swan Fountain works perfectly. But I must agree with another review: I’d pay more to have a pump that lasts longer. Our cat loves this fountain, so it’s replacement pumps for the foreseeable future.
Long Lasting and Great Working Pump

I only bought this for backup when the one that came with the fountain goes out - I'll have it right away instead of having to wait. It's been working a long time (over a yr) and works great!
What else are you gonna do?

When your fountain pump stops working (probably because the fountain ran dry for too long), what else are you gonna do? We're on our third pump now, but we keep buying them because we like the fountain and replacement pumps are cheap enough. If I could spend 5x more money and get a replacement that didn't fail after 3-6-12 months, I would. But there isn't any other option.
So...what else are you gonna do? Just buy it.

Did not work out of the box, this is my THIRD pump. I had 2 fountains, 1st pump lasted 6 months, 2nd & 3rd pump did not work right out of the box. Manufacturers should start paying attention to their quality.
Do not buy

I bought this as a replacement for one we had that lasted about a year before going out. I expected this to be about the same, but 3 days after installing it has stopped working completely. Do not waste your time.
