My boy will only drink from flowing water and absolutely loves his drinking fountain. Before it was a worry that he was only drinking when he and I were in the bathroom at the same time esp given he is prone to bladder stones. The biggest problem with this fountain is the cleaning if you are washing it by hand - there are loads of hard corners and little 'inlets' where dirt and limescale gathers but is difficult to get out even with cotton buds and Drinkwell's cleaning brushes.
Very disappointing. Only had this 6months and the motor packed in. Had to revert back to my old drinkwell, 10 years and still going strong. Thought I’d upgrade to the platinum but I wouldn’t bother if I were you
My vet recommend I get a water fountain for my two Maine coons. They have taken to it very well. This one is well built and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get a drinking fountain for their pet. Best thing is I no longer have to leave the bathroom tap dripping!!!
My four cats love drinking from the fountain and my four year old "eternal kitten" plays with the trickling water too. The only problem that I have with it is that my second motor has stopped working after the weekly clean following the instructions. Once again I was finding it a nightmare sourcing a replacement motor but am delighted to discover that VetUK are now stocking them so not only can I give the product 5* but VetUK deserve 10* for making my life so much easier!
An absolute must have! If you can handle the mickey-take that is... I have three cats and hence went for the larger Platinum model, which is 5l and I have to fill it to twice a week! It's really encouraged my cats to drink, and discouraged one in particular from either sitting in the bath and crying for me to run the tap, or dragging the water bowl across the kitchen floor thereby spilling water EVERYWHERE because he can't adequately see the water surface level when still... He did take some convincing, but about a week into it he stopped heading for the bath. It's very quiet, just a quiet trickle of water which you don't really notice and the motor on the platinum is virtually silent. Everybody laughed, my girlfriend included, but she's had to eat her words as it solved the problem - wish I'd had one from the start!
Brilliant - good quality, quiet, the cats took to it after a day or so and are spending virtually no time in the sink looking longingly at the tap !!! VetUK - great delivery - and best price...
Very noisy even when placed on top of a rug or carpet!! and my cat not in the least interested, but then again she's special.
I purchased this product and it lived up to my expectations - all three of my cats now drink far more & not from my taps thankfully.The product is silent when in use and what's more the price 7 delivery was fantastic from VetUK.
I purchased this water fountain through Amazon for my cat who is 3 years old. I have only had her for 6 weeks. I felt she was not drinking enough water as she would not drink out of her bowl and would only drink water from a tap which had to be turned on for her each time. I then could not guarantee she would drink. The fountain has been a great success, she even drinks from the bowl! she loves it! My daughter has just got a kitten, the kitten has made her way to it and now loves it too! I would strongly recommend this fountain at least you know you cat is having plenty of water which is keeping them healthy.
I ordered the Drinkwell Platinum water fountain for my cat who is 3 but I have only had her a few weeks and felt she was not drinking very much so I decided to buy the fountain and she loves it! She was even drinking from the bowl! My daughter has just got a kitten and she loves it too! I highly recommend this fountain.
This is the best thing I have ever bought my cats. My 17 year old has kidney disease and although had fresh water available took to sitting in the bath crying for the tap to be turned on. I set this up and immediately she took to it and is drinking more, which is better for her kidneys. I have also seen my 11 year old cat use it. It's very quiet, easy to set up and I am so pleased I decided to get this one. I think it is the flow of water that this model has that attracts the cats to drink. Excellent buy.
Fantastic product, highly recommended! One of my cats was recently diagnosed with CRF and encouraging her to drink was becoming a nightmare. She loves drinking from the bathroom sink so I bought her this and she loves it! Her drinking is back to normal and I don't have to worry about her trying to jump up on the sink...
I bought this fountain as a bit of a 'toy' for my multi-cat household as I thought they all drink out of the pond/puddles anyway so it would just replace the bowl of tap water in the kitchen. How wrong I was. I have had it for about 15 months now and I am delighted. The reservoir is big enough that I only have to fill it up once a week (except when all the water outside freezes solid) and the filter keeps it reasonably clean (and presumably tasting good from the cat's point of view). I wash it out and refill it once a week and - being in a hard water area - de scale the pump about once a month (takes 5 minutes and some spirit vinegar). With the pump turned up to maximum it is quite noisy - but at minimum I find it ticks over with very little noise at all. Finally, our 6 month old kittens have just been introduced to it and spend ages trying to catch the stream of water and drink from it. Endless entertainment and much better than telly!
My cats loved this straight away, I think its because the water flows like a tap. Over all I am pleased with it, its easy to clean and isn't too big. The only think I don't like is its quite noisy, more so than I thought.
Excellent purchase & great price, we have two indoor cats who make good use out of it, I expect they drink more water this way than from a bowl
The Drinkwell Platinum Water Fountain has been a great buy. My German Pinscher and my Bengal now don't mind drinking from the same bowl and there is a lot less water splashed around the kitchen and at last they appear to be drinking the level of water they should be. I would recommend this item to anyone who has the space, as it is a good bit larger than an average drinking bowl. It is very quiet, get the filters though, it is amazing what they collect, leaving the water crystal clear. I shopped around but the best price was the VET UK price.
