Drinkwell Platinum Fountain 1-Gallon System
This product is great and very quiet..
I purchased this fountain for 2and 1/2 year old cat who has an inability to lap water from a dish--has had 3 surgeries dealing with salivary and parotid glands. He drinks from faucet.
My other cat loves the fountain, but, I have not convinced the needy one to use it.Will keep trying as the fountain is perfect for Dusty.

I have had my fountain for almost three years and I am happy with it. For two kitties, I must refill the reservoir once a week. I take the opportunity to clean it at the same time. i agree with the comments about cleaning- There are lots of nooks and crannies that are inaccessible. What I have been doing for about six months now is to empty the fountain and rinse it well; then I spray it lightly but thoroughly with Clorox Everywhere spray and wait about 5-10 minutes before washing it as usual with a drop of dish soap and a toothbrush to get in (some but not all of) the hard to reach places. Rinse, rinse, rinse; then rinse it again. Then I refill it with fresh water. I am not sure if the filter actually does much. Toward the end of seven days remnants of cat food are always visable in the drinking pool, though the kitties don't seem to mind. I have not opperated the fountain without the filter, which IS an option according to the manufacturer's info, to see if debris is increased and the drinking pool dirtier. Was tempted to give it 4 stars because of the cleaning issue, however I can't believe the pump is still working away three years later- Hence the 5 star rating.

My cats love their platinum water fountains. They can either drink from the spout or bowl so it is good for all. The large capacity means I only have to fill the container every 3 days instead of twice a day. Yet, it is small enough to fit in the corner out of the way. The cats always have fresh water available.
