    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, reliable, cats love it! This is an update review: I've had the Drinkwell for almost 4 years now, still with the original motor and all parts. Easy to set up and easy to maintain, we only use regular tap water. Most importantly, our cat loves it and drinks far more often than he did from a stationary water dish. There are a couple of general things to follow to get long life from this product: 1. When disassembling for cleaning, use a small amount of Vaseline on the motor o-ring. This will ensure no leakage and ease removal of the motor - otherwise you can put stress on the plastic causing hairline cracks that will leak...this one simple precaution eliminates that concern. 2. Clean weekly! ANY water bowl will build up yucky deposits otherwise. I both and clean and dishwasher clean the Drinkwell, either method is safe and works well. I know they do not claim "dishwasher safe", but it certainly is! I will say that for some folks, the motor may be a bit too noisy (does not bother us, nor our cat), a submersible motor type may be better for those who are bothered by motor noise. To those who say cleaning is difficult? 10 minutes to clean by hand #I use a bottle brush to get the tight areas. a toothbrush will work as well), or toss in the dishwasher. I can not understand any cat owner unwilling to spend 10 minutes or so a week to keep it clean and safe for their cats!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Original Fountain This was my first fountain and still works perfectly after 4 years and 9 out of 10 cats. Our 20 year old Tortie female still prefers her ceramic bowl! Fairly easy to clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver I bought one of these about 5 yrs ago because our new kitten was obsessed with water. In a larger dish he'd dip toys and toss them around wet and a smaller bowl he would tip over to watch the water pour out. At first it leaked and the company sent us a new bowl and it's been good since. We use a little vaseline on the rubber gasket for extra water seal and the make the motor easier to move. To prevent build up I empty and rinse it daily then weekly dismantle and run all but the motor through the dishwasher. It sound like a lot of work but nobody has fallen in my kitchen in 5 yrs and the cats are happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've had an original Drinkwell fountain for more than three years. The cats love it and I've never had a problem with it. Once in a while I have to clean out the inside of the motor with a q-tip, and put a little vaseline on the motor threads to seal them. Aside from washing it every week or two and replacing the filter ever two months, that's it! I have started leaving the top cover off as some of the cats like to drink out of the top before the water "goes over the falls." The only down side is that I have ten cats and the unit doesn't hold enough water for all of them for more than about 24 hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drinkwell Pet Fountain I actually bought the Drinkwell Pet Fountain Deluxe, but it is similar to this one. For some reason, the Deluxe model isn't on the website. It comes with a water reservoir and filter. I used to have a PetMate, but it was difficult to clean. The Drinkwell is very easy to clean. I wash it in hot,soapy water, and rinse well after I use an old toothbrush and q tip to scrub the small places, and a bottle brush to clean the reservoir. I refill it with filtered water from my Brita pitcher. This fountain HAS to be cleaned at least once a week, and filled with fresh water. One of my cats tips over regular water dishes, and this fountain solved that problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This!! It took my big boy about 10 seconds to realize he could drink from a flowing stream again. He had always drank from the tub faucet until I moved in here where it is too high for him. He had to go to a bowl where he made a mess. He still makes a mess, but he's a happy cat!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My roommate and I bought this about four of months ago when it was on sale. We had been looking at it for a while, but never had the funds till then. We had been considering one because she loves to drink out of faucets and she drank out of a display fountain I had until it went dry and burn out. It took her about an hour to get used to the noise but once she did she took to it like a duck in water. It is very easy to put together and disassemble for cleaning and cleaning takes max 10 minutes. Bonus for me is the soothing sound of running water. The only criticism I have is there is not really a noticeable difference in the flow rates when you adjust the lever. I honestly don't know which way is supposed to increase and which is suppose to decrease and that may be a problem for some cats/pets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My cats love this My step daughter moved back home with her cat and she had this fountain. Her cat and my 3 cats love it. They are always there drinking. Other than some hair that gets around the inlet that needs removed we've had no problems with it. Just found out about the added water bottle so may go purchase that to keep up with the 4 cats. Definitely a great item.

    Will this shut off on its own if it runs dry?

    Asked by: Amy11
    Thank you for your question, Amy! This fountain does not have an automatic shut off so we do recommend that you regularly keep an eye on the water level and add water when needed.

    Does this plug in or take batteries? If batteries how long do they last?

    Asked by: KRIS1975
    Hi there, thank you for your question! This fountain plugs directly into a standard U.S. outlet.

    Product came from store with no filter in box and what appears to be a water line on housing. Was this product retruned and put back on the shelf?

    Asked by: ljeffers29

    What are the replacement filters for the drink we’ll look like, and do you carry them in stock
