The Drinkwell® Original Pet Fountain keeps your pet healthy and hydrated with 1.5 litres of fresh, filtered water. The free-falling stream of water entices your pet to drink more and continually aerates the water with oxygen. The charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odours and keeps water clean and fresh.
Pet Fountains filter and continuously circulate the water to prevent bacteria growth and keep the water much cleaner and fresh-tasting than standing bowl water.
Drinking enough water is important for your pet’s overall health. Your pet needs 70ml of water per 1kg of body weight every day. Keeping your pet properly hydrated:
• Helps prevent urinary and kidney diseases
• Speeds recovery time for sick or injured pets
• Helps the body with temperature regulation and fat metabolism
My cat loves this fountain and it stops his tap licking obsession:)
Problem for us humans is it needs to be cleaned out so regularly as it clogs often. Needs a lot of water for the pump to work so if knocked slightly can spill over easily.
Also scale build up is an issue and hard to remove from the plastic surface.
But... my cat loves it.
PetSafe response: Thank you Emily for the comments on the Drinkwell fountain. We love this product, too, and we're glad to hear your cat stopped licking the tap! Please ensure to take apart the pump regularly and pour soapy water inside the motor cavity and clean it with a small round brush like the one found in the Fountain Cleaning Kit. We recommend cleaning the fountain with a 90% water, 10% vinegar solution. Rinse all parts thoroughly afterwards. Use filtered or purified water instead of hard tap water to prevent scale or any other build up. We hope these tips help and we would be thrilled to see your cat continuing to enjoy the fountain for many years to come.
