Rated 1 out of 5 by bethw No luck with 4 pumps with this fountain
I will never buy another Drinkwell fountain!!! When the first pump died (yes, I did the weekly cleaning), I ordered a replacement from the company to be sure that it was compatible. 3 months later the pump died. This time I ordered 2 pumps. died, died...... The last one died after 3 days!!! I use filtered water and even soaked the next to last pump in vinegar like the website suggested. I have spent more in pumps in the last year than I spent on the fountain. Never again - I have an outdoor fountain that can handle gunk for a year or more before needing to be replaced, and none of these can handle filtered water? ABSURD

Out the door (i.e. with tax) this was about $98. The pump got slower and slower and now has nearly stopped working. I want my money back!

I love the looks of this fountain; and most people haven't a clue that it's a pet fountain. I read the review stating that the pump doesn't work. The water can flow slowly IF you do not keep the pump clean. When I clean the fountain, I will open the front of the pump and use a soft tooth brush to clean it well. And the water flows like a dream. And the other review mentioned sediment. A little vinegar and baking soda to clean the sediment off and your all set.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cdmax Love the look but the filter does not even last 1 week. I returned the first one because the water flow was so low that I had to unplug it to keep the motor from burning up. The 2nd one worked for about a month and now it does the same thing unless you change the filter every 5 days. I have one cat and the product said the filter would last up to 2 weeks.
