Cats and dogs need lots of fresh water to stay healthy and hydrated. To ensure they are getting enough fresh, clean water, try the Drinkwell hy•drate, a universal H20 filtration system that works in most pet water bowls.

Fresh water continuously circulates through the hy•drate, while small sediments, like fur and food particles, stay trapped in the filter’s mesh. Activated carbon filters water for cleaner, better-tasting water. Hy•drate is a fun, affordable way to get your pets to drink more water to help improve their health!

Designed to fit in your pet’s favorite bowl, it remains securely in place with small, powerful suction cups. Fresh water continuously circulates through the hy•drate, stimulating your pet’s natural instinct to drink more. Small sediments, like fur and food particles, are trapped in the filter’s mesh. Activated carbon filters the water to remove chlorine and odors for a cleaner, better taste.

Energy efficient, the hy•drate is powered by a quiet, submersible pump with an adjustable flow control. The outer shells are detachable, making it dishwasher safe. One activated charcoal filter is included. Three-pack replacement filters are available separately (PFD17-12905). It is recommended you replace the filter every two to four weeks.

That scared the cats off.
Sandy Kay
This was not a problem for me as my cat's food and water dish happen to be located right next to an electrical outlet, but be aware that you must have a plug nearby.

My faucet loving cat is adventurous and loves moving water, but the other cats haven't been drinking from the dish with it so far (at least not when I'm looking).

COMPARISON...

We've already been using on the bestselling pet fountains on the market: Drinkwell Pet Fountain (range from about $30 to $46 for the deluxe).

The Fountains are have a large footprint and have to be strategically placed (lots of floor space, and near an outlet). This may be difficult for smaller kitchens. Plus even though they are much larger water capacity (ranging from 50 ounces to over a gallon), you still have to check it daily. Your pet can spill it, there's a chance of leaks, the motor can get clogged with debris, & if it gets empty you can burn out the motor.

Additionally, the Fountains require larger filters that also need frequent replacement (and they're more expensive).

THE HY-DRATE: BEFORE USE...

The complaints about charcoal powder residue are a non-issue. You get the same charcoal powder in home water pitcher filters & home water filtration for human consumption. It's perfectly harmless, but you should read the instructions & rinse off for about 10-20 seconds before use. That goes for human water filters as well - anything with activated charcoal.

As for complaints about the motor safety ...the submersible pump used here is the same type and even same brand used in dozens (maybe hundred) of other products (discussion below). I'm not saying it's foolproof, but rather, if you're going to use a product with a pump such as a Filter or Fountain, this product is no more (and no less) safe than any other product.

THE HY-DRATE: TESTING...

This is a clever little device, almost nothing to it. Easy to take apart & rinse out. Easy to adjust flow rate.

Color Name: Ice White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Our household contains two house rabbits and a cat. Contrary to what you might think, the rabbits are the dominant species here. This meant that testing out any product for the cat would invariably involve the lagomorphs that considering everything in the house theirs by divine right. Amazingly the Drinkwell Hy-Drate united both species in a common hate of something other than the pet carrier and the vacuum cleaner.

The first problem was that the Drinkwell need to be somewhat near a plug in. This annoyed all three pets as now one of the communal water bowls was in a location other than where they wanted it to be. The second was that all three pets were more interested in the cord. Although most of it was safely hung up or obscured from where the pets could get it, there was still this clump of hard white in the water bowl with a bit of tempting and delicious cord sticking out. Cord + pets that want to chew on it + water = not something that was long for our household.

The second problem was that the Hy-Drate really didn't do anything. It was quiet, but there was also very little pressure and it barely seemed to do anything. We tried it in all three water bowls (which differ in size greatly and at most there was a little bit of motion a millimeter from where we plugged it in. There are different settings, but there was no discernible difference between the two .

Finally it just came down to all three animals refused to drink out of the bowl the Drinkwell Hydrate was in. This meant that you would see cat and rabbit drinking out of the safe bowl which would lead to the female rabbit growling or snapping at the cat for getting meat/fish flavored backwash in the water herbivores were drinking out of. So in the end the Drinkwell proved to do the opposite of its claims, present a potential threat for the pets and a crying cat as a rabbit headbutted her into submission. All in all, not a product I could recommend.

Hate to rip off Neko Case that way, but, oh well.

I did not test the filtration abilities of this unit until I saw how the gang reacted to it. Mostly what falls into their water bowl are food bits and insects.

I believe they were less than impressed.

You decide.

After I initially set up the "Drinkwell Hy'Drate Cat Fountain" I didn't think it would prove to intrigue my cats (7 total), and they were slow to accept it and drink from the bowl which held the pump/fountain. However I could see the potential (in design) to eventually win my cat(s) approval and acceptance. One of the first things I did was to locate a bowl that wasn't too large or too small. Glass "Pyrex" bowls/containers work nicely. I ended up with a square bowl (rounded corners), clear glass, about 3 inches deep (about 6"x 6"x 3"). Fill the bowl w/sufficient water to cover the pump/fountain. (I use filtered tap water, or bottled spring water). Set the intensity (flow rate) or speed to the second mark (not the lowest). Bigger bowl/containers and larger water volume will likely necessitate choosing higher speeds to move water flow and attract the kitty-cats.

I was able to soften or reduce the noise level on the water pump. The two little suction cups on the bottem of the internal pump did not adhere to the base. So it is likely that the pump is rattling around inside the device (unit housing) and causing excess noise. To remedy this concern/problem, I inserted to small rubber foam pieces on both sides of the pump. (I used foam that is actually ear guard/inserts designed to protect the ears of hunters and machine operators). They were the perfect size, and minimized pump virbration, though the pump noise is minimal even if one does not make these adaptations.

I now have two such fountains set up in my home. The maintenance and convenience is much less that traditional water fountains and of course, not nearly as bulky or large. However, I did note that one reviewer wrote that maintenance was very little and far less than other fountains/pumps.
