Drinkwell® Fountain Dog Bowl
Great fountain for my cats
Just received this replacement fountain. Quiet, quality crafted...only bummer is that it is too quiet. Cats like the tickle sound.....but whatever...very pleased....next one, though has to sound like water is coming out!

Pom wasn't drinking enough water
Great product for the price. Holds plenty of water for my small dog. Only negative is the product tends to be noisy at times. My solution was to tape the fill lid on top of the unit down with scotch tape. It worked. Took a day, but our pom now loves it and drinks more water than he did with the standard metal bowl.

Not good value
I purchased this model about two years ago and with my cat, I noticed that it would spill water all over the place and be almost empty by the time I discovered it. I finally determined that there is a design flaw in this unit in that the spout comes down the side of the unit instead of the middle. As a result if the cat drinks out of the left side the spout will often dump the water on the counter and thereby almost empty the reservoir. I finally rigged it in such a way that the cat drinks from the right side. The unit design is flawed and should be discontinued or redesigned so the spout goes to the center of the reservoir.

Cheapest out there; okay for one or two cats
This works fine for one cat, maybe two. Remember, it is mini. It has no frills and is cheap. It did tend to rattle slightly when I first started it up but has settled down. I had one of these before but did not clean the pump properly and it clogged up (my bad), but it did last under those conditions for several years. Clean it as instructed! It was a bit tricky to access the pump inside to clean it (the cleaning procedure itself is simple) but once you get the hang of it, no problem. It's important, as with any pet fountain, to keep the whole unit clean so regularly change the water and wipe interior surfaces clean. One downside: the replacement filters probably will need to be ordered from the website or elsewhere, as the stores may not carry them.
