Cat Mate Pet Fountain - 70 Fluid Oz.
Vets tell us that it is vital for your pets' health and vitality to keep them well hydrated, and the Cat Mate drinking fountain has been carefully designed to encourage your cat or small dog to drink. Your pets will love the clean, fresh flowing water the Cat Mate Fountain provides.
The Cat Mate Fountain is exceptionally quiet in operation and maximizes the appeal of drinking with its multi-height drinking levels.
The replaceable polymer/activated carbon filter cartridge (one included) keeps the water clear, fresh and free from odors, just the way your pet likes it. Pet Mate recommend that the cartridge should be replaced monthly, or sooner if required.
The pump’s output is easily adjustable and the gentle flow is directed down an inclined water ramp to eliminate splashing and reduce water loss. The pump has a low voltage power supply for safety and is provided with a 10 foot power cord for ease of placement. And with a low power consumption of just 2 Watts, you won’t even notice it on your electricity bill.
Maintenance is simple as the bowls are dishwasher safe and the replacement cartridge easily slides into position. Only use Cat Mate branded filter cartridges to prolong the life of your pump. The pump should also be disassembled (no tools required) and cleaned every few weeks (or more frequently in hard water areas) to prevent limescale build-up. Full easy to follow instructions on how to do this are included with the fountain.
The Cat Mate Fountain has a three year manufacturer’s guarantee and the replaceable pump has a one year guarantee.

Now I know to periodically pop off those three parts and give 'em a once over. Maintenance should be easy moving forward (rinse vs brush) now that I know how to maintain it. Having taken this thing apart, it's easy to see that there's not much to fail. The impeller simply spins off a magnet. My money is on the pump 'failing' due to internal obstruction as opposed to a faulty magnet.
I bought this fountain to replace a Drinkwell fountain I had for years. Why did I switch to Cat Mate? Well, the Drinkwell fountain was a PAIN to clean. Drinkwell sure makes a durable product - I had been wishing it would break for a looooooong time, so when recently, it started getting slimy within just days of every cleaning, I rejoiced! Drinkwell has many unnecessary deep nooks, crannies, and crevices but not Cat Mate - gone are the days of using chopsticks and Q-tips to clean the pet fountain! There are some spots in the Cat Mate that my normal scrub brush can't reach, but a dishrag reaches them no problem. Or, you can just stick it in the dishwasher.
Cleaning the Fountain (see pictures):
The fountain is made of two main pieces: an upper bowl (where the motor attaches) and a lower bowl. The motor can be completed removed from the fountain and taken apart into four pieces. The cord is long and can actually be separated by an attachment in the middle, so that the plug-end of the cord never gets anywhere near water. I am uploading pictures so you can see the pieces. When cleaning, the motor can be disassembled into four parts - the motor impeller and impeller tunnels are supposed to be soaked in a vinegar-water mixture for 2-3 hours to remove limescale deposits. The directions recommend replacing the filter once a month for one cat and more regularly for two or more cats if the filter becomes blocked.
My cat's opinion:
Generally, my cat loves any pet fountain - he drinks more water and begs less when he hears any running water (from any source including the toilet - he's apparently part dog). For the past week or so, I have had the old Drinkwell and new Cat Mate set up side by side. Water is disappearing from both, but it's hard to tell what is due to evaporation and what is due to the cat, but I mostly see him drink from the Cat Mate (probably in large part because it is building up gunkiness more slowly than the old Drinkwell). He seems to especially enjoy drinking from the top level of the Cat Mate.
* Easy-to-Clean (dishwasher safe, but if you do hand-wash, there are few nooks and crannies and all are reachable with a dishrag or paper towel)
* Long cord (so doesn't have to be close to an outlet)
* Cord detaches from plug (so don't have worry about electrocuting yourself if the plug gets wet during a cleaning)
* Filter fits in only one way (versus Drinkwell, where I almost always forgot if the black or gray side should be in front and had to google the answer every time)
* Adjusting the water flow requires taking apart the fountain (but this really isn't that difficult and I rarely change the water flow)
* Large plug (I plug it into the bottom outlet because otherwise it blocks the outlet below)
Two things -
I had a problem with the pump right after I started using it. I sent Pet Mate a message for assistance via their website. They never replied. Apparently, there is no customer service if you have a problem. I was able to fix the problem on my own. The pump stopping working when I cleaned it, and reassembled it. I found the plastic parts that you have to remove to get the impeller out to clean the pump, have to be carefully installed,or they will foul the impeller and stop it turning.
The second thing is more unique to my cat. She likes to push on the fountain with her paws and legs when drinking from it. The fountain is very easy for her to push around on my tile floors. Other fountains I've had were heavier and had rubber feet. This all plastic one slides easily and my cat moves it all over the place.
I do really like the product, I just find it disappointing they don't answer messages when you contact their support.

Pensé que los filtros no servían, pero después de la primera limpieza vi el gran trabajo que desempeña, evita que pasen pelos de gatos, de humano, insectos pequeños como moscas de fruta y escarabajos. Los filtros no solo protegen a la pequeña bomba, si también a mis gatos. Así que recomiendo la compra de filtros de repuestos.
Cuando compre mi fuente me costo $500 mxn. Considero que fue muy buena compra.
The filters are a bit costly and need to be bought from Amazon too. The filter cartridges may not be used if the water is replaced frequently, as soon as debris and dirt is noticed, at least twice a day. They cost around Rs.500/- each and last for about 6 months.
This does induce cats to drink noticeably more water than they used too. In my opinion this is a good investment for the health of my pet.

Está muy bonita y practica, ya que tiene niveles de intensidad de la bomba para que mueva mas rápido o lento el agua.
Es de dos litros de capacidad y para los gatitos le queda bien, pero no para un perro grande porque se la acaba de dos lenguetazos.
Hay que asegurarse que no llegue al nivel mínmo pues se puede dañar la bomba, pero de ahi en más mis gatos no tuvieron problema y se adaptaron rapido a tomar agua de ahi y mas que nada que siempre está fresca.
