Whisker City® Pet Fountain
My husband & I purchased the small pet fountain for our 1 male cat (who prefers running water). The product was easily assembled & inexpensive; I do believe this is one of those get-what-you-pay-for circumstances. Although properly functioning, the unit was entirely too loud for a small house - the sound was much like an amplified aquarium pump. I recommend paying more for a quieter unit. If you have a large house where the unit will not be near your common area or bedroom, this product would probably suit just fine.

Its the pump
I purchased two of these over a six month period thinking that it was the filters not protecting the pump from breaking. The problem is, that the pump gets clogged and overheats then stops working. The pump has to be taken apart, and cleaned in order for this product to keep working. There is a video online if you google the product, you can see how. Wish I would have known sooner. Now I have to find a new pump.

Waste of money
Purchased this bowl for my cat. Had it about 3 months. During that time, I noticed the water flow kept getting less and less, had to keep turning up the flow until it would go no further. Ultimately, there was no flow at all. Changed the filter more often than recommended thinking that was the problem. Cleaning it was a chore. I could not find my receipt, so could not return to store. Would not recommend this dish.

Had one cat that I had to keep a faucet dripping because he would not drink from a bowl! Read really mediocre reviews on most products except the ridiculously priced ones and decided on this one. All 3 of my cats are loving it! My outside cat rushes in several times a day to use it! However, do find the youtube video on how to clean pump. Just did this and it made a huge difference. Had this for 6 months still runs like new and my kitties are very, very happy with it!
