Product Description

Keep your pet healthy with the Drinkwell Platinum Fountain

Research shows one way to improve your pet’s health is to get him to drink more water. Water is essential for supporting your pet’s vital organ function. On average, your pet should drink one ounce of water per pound of weight daily. The Drinkwell Platinum Fountain provides convenience for you while giving your pet plenty of water to stay hydrated. The patented, free-falling stream aerates his water with healthful oxygen, and an activated-carbon filter removes bad tastes and odors giving your pet the best way to stay hydrated and healthy.

Is your pet dehydrated?

To check if your pet is dehydrated, gently grab a loose fold of skin, either on the back of the neck or in between the shoulder blades and release. If the skin snaps back into place, your pet should be okay. If the skin slowly returns into place, your pet could be dehydrated and may need to be checked by a veterinarian. On average, your pet should drink one ounce of water per pound of weight daily.

What is activated carbon?

The activated carbon replacement filters are made of coconut shells. The coconut shells are put through a process called carbonization, which removes all other elements other than carbon. The carbon is then ‘activated’ by adding back oxygen, creating a material suitable for adsorption. Activated carbon absorbs basic water contaminants, as well as chlorine from tap water. This helps improve the taste and remove odors from basic drinking water.

Veterinarian Invented by Dr. Mary Burns, DVM.

Veterinarians recommend fountains because the moving water encourages pets to drink more for proper hydration. The free-falling stream also adds oxygen for freshness, making the water more appealing to drink. Proper hydration promotes healthy kidney function, cushions and lubricates joints, speeds recovery time for sick or injured pets and helps your pet’s body with temperature regulation.


Key Features:

1. Patented, free-falling stream adds oxygen for freshness and entices pets to drink more water.
2. Premium, replaceable activated carbon filter removes bad tastes and odors for fresher, better-tasting water.
3. Constant circulation inhibits bacteria growth in between cleanings.
4. Pre-filter catches hair and other large particles before they reach the pump to prolong pump life.
5. Submersible pump for safe and quiet operation.
6. Snap-on lid for easy filter replacement and to prevent accidental removal by pets.
7. Receiving ramp reduces splash and sound of falling water.
8. Adjustable flow control to change flow and circulation of water to be slower or faster.
9. Built-in reservoir increases capacity and makes refills easy.
10. Rubber feet on bottom to help prevent fountain from moving or sliding.
11. Low-voltage, 12V system with inline-plug connection for safe operation and easy pump removal.
12. Easily disassembles and top-shelf dishwasher safe (excluding pump) for easy cleaning.

*DAILY WATER INTAKE: A healthy daily water intake range for cats and dogs is 0.3 - 1.07 oz per lb of the pet's actual weight (20-70 mL per kg). For the purpose of this chart, the maximum intake of 1 oz per lb was used to calculate the estimated days filled. Your pet may drink more than the recommended amount due to high activity level and/or other external factors, such as the heat. If your pet is consuming significantly more than the indicated amounts above, this may be a sign of polydipsia or other ailment, please seek the counsel of a veterinarian as soon as possible.

**ESTIMATED DAYS FILLED: Calculations were made on a single pet basis and do not account for multiple pets' use of the fountain. All calculations were made using the maximum level of water intake for each specified weight. The above calculations do not take into account water evaporation or other external factors, such as spilling.

I have two cats and I definteley spoil them rotten! When I first decided to get a water fontain for my cats I chose the Petmate Freshflow over the Drinkwell because the Drinkwell was more expensive and I was completely against the idea of listening to running water all day. Unlike most customers I've heard from the Petmate worked farily well as a water BOWL. It was easy to clean and my pump never stopped working as I've read many others did. However, the water running down the little ramp really didn't satisfy my cats. They did drink from it, but they would still jump at any chance to drink running water out of a faucet which is the whole reason I started thinking about getting them one in the first place. About a ear and a half later I started thinking about getting them a new one and possibly going with the more expensive Drinkwell this time. I saw the new Drinkwell Platinum and decided to go with it right away. The Platinum is more expensive than both the previous models I was looking at but it is definteley worth the extra cost. It's like Drinkwell took all the criticism and praise for both thier design and their competitors and created an exceptional pet drinking fontain. I have had my Platinum for about 5 months now and have been very pleased with it. The Drinkwell team designed the water outlet so that it would minimize the water from braiding which cuts down on the water noise. In fact at the setting I have mine, about mid way between low and mid level, I can't hear it at all! They also put a little debris trap before the water even gets to the pump which should greatly increase the pumps life. The water resevoir is also much bigger than that of my Petmate and the Drinkwell's optional larger resevoir on their original design.Read more ›

02/01/10 Update:

I now have four cats (as of January 2009) and they all love this fountain.

This is my cat Rachel; she is the reason I got this fountain because should would not drink standing water. Cats usually prefer moving water to drink. When you feed only hard food, it is especially important that they drink more because there is no moisture in their meal. If they don't they could develop urinary tract problems.

What I like about this fountain is that the filter lasts 3 months (about 2 months if you have a multiple cat household). It also has a large reservoir. As a result, I only have to fill the tank about 2-3 times a week for my 4 cats. I also make sure I clean the entire unit weekly. The pump should also be taken apart and cleaned periodically, which is easy to do as shown in the instructions. I usually clean the pumping mechanism out every two weeks.

What I also like about this fountain is that it has a grate in front of the pumping mechanism that prevents a lot of hair from getting into the pump. You just lift the grate up every few days to clean off the hair.

Rachel likes her water chilled and the other cats have gotten use to this as well. So you can put ice cubes into the tray and the cats will have ice water in a few minutes. This is refreshing in warm weather; but for my cats I do it all year long because Rachel requests it.

There is also an "off-use" benefit to this fountain. One time I burned my fingers and (after putting ice cubes in the water) held my fingers under this fountain for a couple of hours until the swelling subsided. This allowed me not to waste water and to keep the temperature on my hands cold.

Verified Purchase
I tried a competitors product that I got at a discount store first. The first day of use my 2 small dogs & 1 cat were not as excited as I was but they eventually started to drink from it. The competitors product was ok but it was noisy, smaller & had a small water reservoir.
Once I saw that they would drink from it, I then ordered the Drinkwell Platinum Fountain from Amazon. It was twice the price of the competitor but I think it is well worth it & they all drank from it right away.
The Drinkwell is very quiet, holds much more water & the pump is much better. The pump allows me to control the water flow which I keep at high to keep the water fresher by filtering more.
Since getting the Drinwell, Ive noticed that they all drink more often & drink more at each visit. I refill the water reservoir sometimes twice a day & its a large reservoir. Its just that they are all literally drinking so much more water. I feel bad that Ive made them drink from a bowl of stagnant, dusty, warm, spit filled water for all these years. But they love this fresh, cool, filtered water & it shows by the amount they drink.
I dont have the problems with refilling it that some seem to have although the reservoir dose drip after you turn it over. I just hold a paper towel under it while I walk from the sink to the bowl.
It was very easy to take apart & clean & it just snaps back together. One thing I didnt fully understand until I took it apart to clean was that its better to not just refill the reservoir when it gets low but to actually empty it, rinse it & then refill it. The water in the reservoir becomes part of the entire water system once place in its holder. So it seems to make sense to empty the contaminated water & then refill completely with fresh water.
