PetSafe® Drinkwell® Original Pet Fountain is a healthy way to get cats to drink more water
Quiet motor, trickling water attracts cats to drink!
Continuous flow of fresh, clean water
Cats like nothing better than clean, fresh water. But even when they have plenty of water available, some cats do not drink enough for good health. They are simply finicky about tepid, standing water in their bowl.
To make sure your cat drinks all of the water she needs, get her the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Original Pet Fountain. This well-made fountain delivers a continuous, trickling flow of filtered water to the delight of your cat. It also helps eliminate the jumping up onto counters in search of a dripping faucet. Its 5" falling stream continually aerates the water and runs so quietly, all you will hear is the sound of running water. It is quieter than most faucets when they are left running.
The PetSafe Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain is especially beneficial for cats with kidney or urinary tract disease. These cats have a critical need for water to support kidney function or prevent crystal formation and obstruction.
Just fill the attractive light gray fountain with water, place it in desired location, plug it in, and adjust the flow rate knob to suit her preference.
Filters are reusable (for up to two to four weeks). Just rinse and replace. Charcoal filters remove bad tastes and odors, for fresher water your pet will want to drink.

Tips on use: When being introduced to the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Original Pet Fountain, your cat will probably have the good sense to be cautious of this new and unusual object. After beginning operation of the fountain, just let your cat adjust at his or her own pace. Some cats take several days or longer to begin use. Ice cubes can be added to the bowl for refreshing ice-cold running water.
Operation: Fill with water and plug unit in to begin continuous recirculation. Add water to the bowl as needed. Water first falls onto a ramp in the bowl, which reduces the noise and splash of falling water. Yet the flowing action still breaks the surface tension of the bowl water to draw in oxygen from the air and aerate the water. Aerated water tastes fresher.
No, one of the great features about the Drinkwell Pet Fountain is its quietness. In fact, the only sound your pet will hear is running water. It is quieter than most faucets when they are left running.
Does the filter remove food particles from the water?
The filter removes tastes and odors from the water, but it does not remove food particles. The opening that pulls the water into the filter chamber has a grate over it to prevent food particles from blocking it. If your cat tends to leave food particles in the water, you must clean the bowl more often.
Do I have to use the filters and water reservoir with the Drinkwell Pet Fountain?
It is not necessary to use the filters or the water reservoir with the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. The filters will remove odors and tastes out of tap water, and the water reservoir will give you an additional 6 cups of water to be sure that your pet has enough. This is especially important if you have multiple cats, are going to be away for a weekend, or if the weather is very hot and humid; when your pet may be drinking more water.
I have dogs, would the fountain be a good choice as an automatic waterer for my dogs?
The Drinkwell Pet Fountain can be used for small dogs, but is not recommended for medium size dogs or larger. A larger dog could tip over the fountain, or drink it dry, causing the motor to run dry and damage it. If you are using it for your cat and you also have a larger dog (or small children), it is recommended that you place the fountain up where only the cat can reach it.
