I've had the stainless steel version of this water fountain for several years, and it has worked very well. I decided to add a second one, and I ordered the ceramic one. It arrived with a pump that barely worked at first then after just a couple of days completely quit. So I can't use this fountain at all. The spout between the pump cartridge and the top of the fountain seems longer, and I'm not sure that the pump has enough power to push the water through the top in this version.
Purchased it due to it being something other then plastic and the over all quality is really good but you need to clean it every 2 days even if your pet doesn't use it or it will get a really nasty film on the bottom.
I picked this water dish for our three cats because of its large capacity, ceramic material, and the option for the cats to drink from the flowing water side or the quieter pool side. Our younger, more curious cats took to drinking from the fountain right away and even our skittish cat enjoys drinking the fresh water from this dish. The trickling water fountain is a bit louder than expected in our open kitchen but I describe it as a zen water fountain flowing sound. The top and bottom are ceramic so there is a weight to them and the dish has not moved from its placement on a plastic mat during use.
It definitely wasn’t what expected nor what the picture showed. Sending it back as soon as can figure out how to contact Chewy for a refund or an exchange.
Nice design, heavy ceramic, easy to assemble; unfortunately the pump has failed after a week. It had a very weak water movement to begin with and now it’s not working. If you put your face right above the water, you can see a small ripple, but water is not “fountaining” by any means.
The pump is silent, but the water falls between the top piece and bottom piece and was distractingly loud. I used to have the Pioneer "Big Max" in ceramic and that was nearly silent. It is easy to clean and assemble.
My cat only would drink out of the toilet (shudder). Wanted nothing to do with her water bowl or the cheap noisy water fountain I tried. Saw this and thought it just might work. Success! I placed it in our bathroom, let her sniff it a few days before adding water & waited another day to plug it in. SUCCESS!!! She drinks out of it multiple times a day.
I bought this particular fountain because I thought it would be heavy enough to keep my 11-pound mischief making tabby from slapping it around spilling water all over the place. I was almost right. I'm pretty sure she has managed to shove the whole dish aside once, but usually she just settles for locking the top piece ajar (or off), and depending on how it lands making just as much of a mess -- or more because she's got ore water to work with. Our other two cats don't do this, so I'd almost give a third star, except there are a couple of design flaws that leave me floummoxed. The outlet port on the pump just misses being long enough to fit inside the rubber grommet in the top piece, which MIGHT actually help keep it in place despite the assault for my little troublemaker, except that the suction cups that are supposed to hold the pump housing to the floor of the bowl, don't always grip very well. Then there's the matter of aligning the pump port with the outlet in the housing with no reliable way to locate it. It too could be made a fraction of an inch longer, so that it fits positively inside the outlet of the housing and takes the guess and check out of trying to locate the pump when cleaning the unit. The top piece itself is located more by suggestion than anything, and you can't ever really be sure it's in the right place. There really should be a third option to the would you recommend, because if you have a cat (or dog) that won't try to disassemble the fountain, it works fine. But if you have a little troublemaker like mine, you're going to end up very frustrated and looking for a different solution.
Seems really well made, we liked it a lot. Unfortunately it is just too small for our mid size border collie mix. She makes a huge puddle every time she drinks from it. We've had bigger fountains like this with little to no issue with water mess. This is just too small for us :(
The middle piece broke off just from my cats using it, like other reviews say. It was nice while it lasted though
