About the PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Pet Fountain
Give your pet the fresh water they need. With the Drinkwell Pagoda Pet Fountain from PetSafe, your pet can enjoy filtered, fresh water every day. This ceramic fountain uses a pump to recirculate water, continually passing it through two filtration systems. The foam filter removes debris and hair and the activated carbon filter removes any bad tastes and odor from the water. The water in your pet’s Pagoda fountain is constantly moving, inhibiting the growth of bacteria while also encouraging your pet to drink more.
With multiple styles and color options, ceramic fountains from PetSafe Brand fit seamlessly with modern home decor. These fountains are more than a water bowl, they are a home accessory.
Activated Carbon Filter
The carbon in our filters is derived from organic coconut shells. 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.
Free-falling streams help circulate fresh water and provide your pet with multiple drinking areas: the top, the two streams and the bottom bowl.
Hygienic and Easy to Clean
The ceramic material of the Avalon pet fountain is top-rack dishwasher safe. The pieces can easily be disassembled for cleaning.

The PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain combines fashion and function by providing you with a stylish home accessory that also provides 70 oz. of fresh-flowing, filtered water for your pets. The hygienic ceramic design is non-porous and easy-to-clean. The activated carbon, coconut shell filters help absorb molecules out of tap water that can contribute to poor taste and smells. An added foam filter helps protect the pump from pet hair and other debris. All this with the end goal of making your pet’s water as appealing as possible so they will drink more. The Pagoda Fountain is available in 4 colors: Porcelain White, Stoneware Red, Taupe or Himalayan Blue.
DirectionsThe PetSafe Drinkwell Ceramic Pagoda fountain creates a multi-level bowl with running water for your pet's ideal drinking experience. Cats often don’t get the water they need to stay properly hydrated and getting them to drink water can be a challenege. Thankfully, PetSafe has created the Drinkwell Ceramic Pagoda fountain to entice your cat with clean, running water. The fountain uses a charcoal filter to remove dirt and hair from the water as it flows through the fountain and makes an excellent drinking source for cats and dogs alike. Combined with the water flow, the filter creates a clean, fresh source of up to 70 oz of water. The Ceramic Avalon Fountain utilizes a square porcelain design to conveniently fit into any corner of your home. The fountain also adds oxygen to the water through its dual patented free-falling streams to keep the water as fresh as possible. The fountain functions using a 12-V system with a pump that is submersible for silent operation. The PetSafe Drinkwell Ceramic Pagoda Fountain is easy to assemble and disassemble for cleaning. To clean it, simply remove the pump and place the fountain in the dishwasher for a quick and easy clean. The charcoal filter is replaceable to ensure that your fountain’s water stays clean. In addition to being easy to clean, the porcelain fountain creates a nice aesthetic in the home and is also more hygienic than fountains made from other materials.

Top Customer Reviews
About a month ago, I purchased the Drinkwell 360 Stainless Fountain when my Drinkwell Platinum started getting harder & harder to keep clean, and when I read that plastic parts can contribute to feline acne & harbor bacteria. After researching the different fountains, I had settled on the stainless Drinkwell 360. While it's better than the plastic models, there were still some drawbacks: the spouts are still plastic (and that's where one of my cats likes to lap up water) so I still had a concern about the plastic/acne connection. And even though I read about the dimensions of the unit, it still took up a larger footprint in my small kitchen than I thought it would (admittedly, that's my fault for not measuring). There was also an inconsistency with the assembly instructions (see my review of the Drinkwell Stainless 360 for more info). Also (and this is not necessarily a fault of the fountain), one of my cats took quite a while to get used to it, even though he'd been drinking out of a fountain for years.
After using it for a couple of weeks, I discovered a newer model: the Drinkwell all-Ceramic Pagoda fountain. After finding out that one of my co-workers would buy the 360 Stainless from me, I then got the Pagoda...it is MUCH better. Except for the pump and filter housing, it's all-ceramic, so there is no direct contact with plastic for the cats. It's MUCH better-looking, takes up less space, and offers three choices for the cats: drink out of the bowl (which my kitten does), drink out of one of two spouts, or drink from the top tier where the water bubbles up (which my older cat likes--he doesn't have to stoop to drink; he can drink sitting upright). Both cat & kitten took to it immediately. Also, the cleaning & reassembly is even EASIER with this model. Cleaning took less than 10 minutes. And the bonus point? It's really a beautiful fountain compared to the others, too.
HELPFUL HINT: If you want a comprehensive, one-stop site to research ALL the different brands & models of water fountains out there, I HIGHLY recommend [...] This site gives you the pluses & minuses of every fountain out there, and also includes short videos of cats drinking from each type of fountain! I wish I had found this site before I had purchased the Stainless 360 model, but I don't believe the Ceramic Pagoda was available yet anyway.
***Edited 4/25/14 to add: It will be one year next week that I've had the Pagoda fountain and my cats (and I) still love it. I use bottled water to fill it, so there's no hard water buildup. I clean it once a week, replacing the charcoal filter every 3 weeks and the foam "pre-filter" every 6 weeks. Cleaning takes 10 minutes. For those who don't like the sound of trickling water: if you keep the fountain full to within 1/4" of the top, you will barely hear it.
***Edited 4/10/16 to add: I've had the Pagoda fountain for nearly three years now, and it is still working perfectly and looks absolutely pristine. I stick to the same cleaning schedule mentioned above (weekly) and you would never guess that this fountain is anything other than brand-new. Both cats still love it, and this year I've included a video of my 14-year old, Tux, drinking from it. :)
NONE OF THEM ARE PERFECT. Water is involved, and with that, a breeding ground for bacteria. What about the carbon filters, you ask? They're not meant to remove microbes. ONLY chemicals like chlorine. They are the same types of filters you find in your Brita pitchers and water dispensers. If you want 100% perfect water (hypothetically), use distilled. Distilled has no chemicals, minerals (TDS) or microbes. And then you won't even need the carbon filters anymore, just the little foam one that helps keep debris out of the pump. And that can be washed and disinfected. I'm using the filters that came with the fountain, and then that's it. I'm not buying any carbon filters and will resue the foam one. We drink 100% filtered water, using the Zero water system. Don't know what that is? look it up. It's actually pretty cool, and if you have hard water, it WILL benefit. Because hard water has a high amount of TDS (total dissolved solids). And the Zero system and it's filters remove that, all of it. I've tested it. So i'm not kidding. So I don't need distilled water for anything, let alone silly little carbon filters for this fountain.
If you want to slow down sludge growth of this fountain after initial use, these are my suggestions:
- bleach it first. I'm not kidding. Whether you use full strength or a 10% solution, kill the germs that are present on the fountain while upon arrival. Apply the cleaner to all parts, including the pump, for 10 minutes, then flush thoroughly. Run the pump to make sure it flushes itself out well. THEN put it together.
-add no more than 2 tsp of peroxide to the water, and only if you're using filtered/distilled water. A friend of mine says he actually sprays it on the filter of his fountain every so often and it helps keep it clean. I did some reaserch and there are some claims to peroxide, in small measured quantities, is actually good for you. I'm not putting up any links..look it up yourself.
-don't like the idea of peroxide still? Add 2 tsp of apple cider, or white, vinegar. If you have hard water, this will also help combat hard water stains on the your fountain. I didn't say totally eliminate the issue, i said help combat, meaning reduce. ACV is also said to be good for you pet, and humans. And some water addtives for dental purposes have ACV in it. My last bottle did ist it. I use both of these methods by the way.
-keep it out of direct sunlight. Sunlgiht helps algae grow, among other microbes.Plus it will warm the water, and if you don't like drinking lukewarm water, i don't think your cat will either.
-keep it away from their normal feeding area. Some pets like to go straight from food to water, and back again, dropping bits into the fountain. Dogs are notorious for this crud, and i've actually seen my old Drinkwell Platinum get nasty much faster after a dog has been using it long enough.
-try to keep it out of high traffic areas. Feet kick up dirt, and dirt will get into the water more often if in areas like that.
-- i know these last 2 aren't always feasible for eveyrone, considering the layout and size of your home. But bear these in mind when you have issues.
Now for mechanics and assembly of this particular fountain. My husband put it together without instructions. Perfectly. No leaks, No issues. He dove in on it before i could get it out of the box good.
- There is no hole in the bottom of the dish! Not one that will cause issues. The hole that is there, is just a feed tube for the power cord to the pump. Pump sits in dish, Cord goes up the outside of the tube, then down the inside of it. Then under and out from the bottom of the dish. That's the only function of the tube. And the tube entry is much higher than the water level of a comepletely full dish, And there is a cap/gasket that still covers that. The water is pushed up through the second piece that sits inside the dish.
-as for sound. I don't hear the motor. Period. And I have some darned good hearing. The water flow seems to be what bothers folks. Think of, a drikning fountain at school or in a store. That's the flow of this fountain. But regardless of flow, the reason why it's 'loud' is because fountain doesn't have a 'splash ramp' like the other Drinkwell products, like my old Platinum. The water flows directly into itself. So fill a sink just a little and then turn on the faucet to a low steady flow and keep it like that for a few mintues. If you don't like that sound, don't get this fountain, or any others like it that don't have the splash ramp. No, having a flow valve like on the platinum will not help. It's still water hitting water. Only change with be the pitch or tone of the water.
By the way, i had the Platinum for 7 years. I retired it 2 weeks ago, because, it was just old and nasty. Sludge was growing faster than i could keep up with and the water would actually look nasty, with this film floating in it. It's plastic. It's been through it's paces of being moved cross country and cleaned constatly. 7 years for a $60 item. Well worth it. But i didn't want plastic again, because that does harbor more germs than ceramic or steel, because plastic does break down over time. We replaced the pump once in it's lifetime. Just like in cars, motors die folks, especailly with constant use. As for the mother with this Pagoda, well we'll see. But unlike others, i'm not going to get overly butthurt over it. I registered my product with PetSafe (keep your invoice! They ask you to uplaod it!), so if the motor dies within a year, I'll just get it replaced. Not like my cats will die immediately over not having the fountain running for a few days while i wait for a new pump. They'll find other ways to get a drink in the meantime, whether i help them or not. i might come back later with an update on the pump, just so foks can see how ong mine lasted.
Several months later....... 08/08/2014
The motor is still working just fine. Has not died on me. Nothing has broken. Because of the climate I'm in, southern Lousisiana hot and humid, plus the number of cats, 4, It does get icky in about 2 weeks. But again, this is not a defect of the product. It's situational and it's something I work on. I do add the liquid called Manna Pro All Natural Water Protector that I bought at the Tractor Supply locally. I found it in the chicken feed section but it can be used on other animal as well. The ingredients are quite safe for cats and dogs, based on my experience as a soap maker, so I have to research ingredient labels and what each item is and what it does. I do believe it prolongs the water cleanliness considering our specific household situation. Pretty sure Amazon sells it as well if you do a search.
Last Edit......December 10th, 2014
I still have it. Have not broken the fountain itself and the motor is still good. Only thing I replaced were the plastic parts because I washed them in the bottom rack of my dishwasher. The instructions didn't indicate whether they could be washed this way or not. Ordered them on PetSafe's website and the set is very affordable. All 4 of my cats use it constantly. I clean it once a month. I've noticed using the carbon filter, there is less sludge going to the motor. But it could also be the additives I use to keep the water clean. Great buy for our family.
