Style Name: Standard
My aging cat, like many others, needs to be encouraged to drink as much as possible. I read lots of reviews for cat fountains, and decided on this one (there are basically two other options that I know about.)

I have a pergo floor that isn't impervious to water, so I varnished a thin 2'x2' piece of plywood to set the fountain on, to catch any random splashes.

Maisie wasn't sure about the thing at first, though maybe the smell of the varnish was putting her off. After a few days she has taken to it fine. I don't know if she LOVEs it, as other owners have claimed, but she does use it, which is all I could reasonably expect.

Good:
- It is quiet. The motor is virtually inaudible. I don't know why some other people complain about the humming or buzzing noise. I don't hear a thing, and mine is sitting on a hard floor (on top of a sheet of 1/16" plywood.) It can make a trickling watery sound at the high setting, but apparently some people like the sound, and anyway turning down the flow almost eliminates it.

- It holds a fair amount of water. I don't have to worry about it going dry every few days as I did with the old water bowl. So Maisie always has water to drink.

- Doesn't splash water everywhere. In fact it doesn't splash at all. The water has a landing ramp that lets it down easy.

- Stable, not easy to tip over.

Not so good:
- It does need to be refilled every few days, not because it will run out of water, but because the impeller pump sits a fair distance above the bottom of the drinking bowl, so there has to be a fair amount of water in the bowl so the impeller (like a little paddle wheel) isn't spinning in air. The pump will complain then, making a sucking, thrumming sound.

Some of the negative reviews indicate that the Drinkwell is noisy. The truth is, it's only noisy if it doesn't have enough water or if the intake valve is clogged (which so far hasn't caused the pump to burn out for me). There's a slight hum from the pump when it's working correctly, but it will be much quieter than the other appliances in your kitchen.

Cat hair and cat food can both clog the intake. So to keep it in top condition, check the water level once every day or two (or get the add-on reservoir), place the Drinkwell several paces away from the food dish (so your cats aren't tempted to moisten their food with it), and break down and clean the Drinkwell regularly, perhaps once a month when you change the filter cartridge.

Noisy, clogs easily requiring frequent cleaning and started leaking after only four months.... After extensive review, starting with the bad reviews first, I came to the conclusion that all these commercial fountains are problematic. On a quest to build a better mouse trap I found this DYI fountain on YouTube:

Filtered Pet Water Bowl

It uses a 10 gallon external fish tank pump and I have it attached to a Hamilton Beach mixing bowl with the intake tube covered with a piece of stocking mesh. After four months now I can state it is easy to clean, very quiet, inexpensive to put together and my cat loves it. See the image I've added of my own setup, at this point #30 of the customer images below the Drinkwell images.

I bought one of these Drinkwells through Amazon. I got the optional resevoir and cleaning kit and with shipping it cost me $70. The Drinkwell has a relatively loud pump noise that comes from under the bowl part which spooked the cats the first few days (ands drives me nuts so I have to unplug it at night even though it's three rooms away from my bedroom). Once they got over the noise, the cats loved it so much that I would have liked a second (I have multiple food/water stations) but the price made that impossible.

The other day I was at my local grocery store and they had a similar product called the Bubbler for $14.99. I couldn't believe it and snatched one up.

Let me say, the Bubbler is not only considerably cheaper, but holds more water than the Drinkwell, is easier to clean than the Drinkwell and is quieter than the Drinkwell. I so regret spending that much money on the Drinkwell now.

The Bubbler air pump is not in the bowl, it connects to it by a hose so the little bit of noise from it is far enough away as to not spook the cats. All you really hear from the Bubbler is the bubbling water which reminds me of those water fountains people put in their homes now.

The Drinkwell pump is in the back of the bowl and it recirculates the water so you hear the pump itself and then the running water sound. As it pulls water from the bowl and recirculates it, any pet hair or dropped food that goes into the bowl gets pulled into the inlet and clogs it. Some hair goes right through these little pieces and then clogs the pump. I pulled a big hair clog out of the center of the pump already. Plus it uses filters so there's that extra cost. I have run it without the filters, so that is an option.

Style Name: Standard with Bonus 50 oz Reservoir Verified Purchase
This is probably the 10th water fountain I get for my cats after most of them committed seppuku (either the pump or the transformer ends up dying within a year, sometimes considerably less)
Compared to all the others, it's easy to clean, easy to fill, easy to take apart, the filter is very easy to replace, and best of all, it's easy to refill. All the other fountains require practically daily refills because of their small tanks, but this one can last several days for my two cats with its extra 50oz tank. Even better, the extra tank makes it very easy to refill, just take the tank to the nearest faucet and refill. Unlike many other gravity tanks, this one has a large opening so it's very easy to clean any deposits or algae growth.
On top of everything, this is one of the least expensive fountains out there, so it's my top recommendation for cats (or small dogs).
One minor complaint: the slowest flow is still a little too enthusiastic and loud, it would be nice to be able to reduce it to a drizzle.
Note that you can also buy this fountain separately and add the 70oz external tank instead, for extra capacity; but this fountain + 50oz reservoir combo is by far the best deal. Recommended.
