I disagree with M&M's review about the filters lasting no more than 1 day. That hasn't been my experience at all. Make sure they get loaded with the black side facing the front of the fountain, and the narrower edge goes in first. Also, it's important to rinse the filter with cold water before inserting. This will get rid of any loose carbon dust. The manual explains all this.

According to the manual, 1 filter should last 6-8 weeks, depending on your pump speed and how quickly your animal(s) go through the water. I change mine every 2 months, sometimes longer. Now, I *clean* the whole fountain every 5-6 days, taking apart the whole thing, dumping out the old water, giving it a good scrubbing with soap and hot water. I take the lid off first, clean it, and rest the filter on the lid while I clean the rest of the fountain. Then I put the same filter back in, unless it's due for a change.

$10 for a 3-pack that lasts 6 months is a good deal to me. Don't know how the other user had such problems with grime and slime. It's important to clean the fountain regularly is all I can think of.

Great product!!

Since I already posted a review for the Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain, I am going to keep this review focused on the product itself, which is the new and improved filter.

I can't say that I was all that thrilled with the previous filter for use with the older version of the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. It was always producing a lot of charcoal in my cats water and although it didn't hurt him, I still didn't like the site of all that "garbage" in the bottom of his water dish. Also, the old filters didn't seem to do that good of job of filtering out the water. I don't know if it was just me, but I didn't like them all that much.

Now we jump forward to the other day when I got the Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain for my cat's eighth birthday, which he was simply overjoyed with and stuck his entire face in the stream to get the first drink.

These new filters seem to do a much better job at filtering out the water as it circulates throughout the system. I have yet to see any charcoal in the bottom of his dish, nor anywhere else for that matter. I would definitely recommend that you buy several of these three-packs of replacement filters and be sure and change them frequently depending upon the condition of your local water. Some places have a harder water than others and therefore should replace the filters more often.

These Filters Work Great, Catching all cat hair that may have gone through the pump Dirt, dry food, Everything.

These Filters Recommend changing every two weeks. I let a filter go for a month take it out rinse it and let it go for another month, if it still looks Great. I'm giving the cats filtered water as it is and only use these to catch debri. So save some money and check your filters and see if they can be used again.

For our two cats we have a Platinum Drinkwell Fountain. We also live in a VERY hard water area.. There is nothing about the fountain or the filters that will "soften" the water, that is not what they're for. The idea is to get cats--descended from North African Desert animals---to drink more water. Its better for their kidneys; they'll likely live longer. ( A high percentage of older cats die from kidney failure, it is very common. Many veterenarians now are encouraging the use of some canned or "wet" cat food in a cat's diet to provide more moisture, since most cats aren't big on drinking....thats in part what all this is about.)

As other posters have commented, my former cats always wanted the tap water on a "thin" drip or flow of water. It had to be "just so"...not too much, not too little...but they preferred drinking that water over their water in bowls, no matter how often the bowls were changed/cleaned. (Yes, I tried glass, ceramic, stainless steel, every recommendation about what type of bowls cats are said to prefer...)

When the cat water fountains first came out I was skeptical at first...but it made sense, obviously this re-created what the cats preferred. The running water, the sound....so I got one.

The critical element after buying the fountain is maintaining it. READ the directions! Change the filters "every 2-4 weeks depending on the size and number of pets using the fountain". Thats from the back of the Drinkwell filter package. And please use Drinkwell filters if you have a Drinkwell fountain! They are made to work together.

Also follow the directions regarding rinsing off the excess charcoal off the filters with cold water before insertion into the Drinkwell machine. It is a good filter, but you must follow the directions.

The premium version of the Drinkwell filter keeps the charcoal spread out, allowing it to be more effective than the standard model.

Ok, so I clean my Drinkwell Platinum Fountain Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain 168oz and put the unit back on the floor. I lay down on the coach to take a nap. Next thing I know I have 3 paws whacking me upside the head and I hear, "Hello Mcfly, you did not change the dang filter and now the water is running over the top of the filter." So I get up and check out the filter. Low and behold the cats were correct. I did not change the filter and the water just ran over the top and went to the basin without being filtered. Now this was the 5th time in 6 weeks I had cleaned the unit. Basically it took 5-6 weeks for the filter to clog up. As the 3 amigos stared at me like I was a complete idiot I proceeded to replace the old filter with a new one from my stock I had purchased on Amazon. Once the new filter was in place, the 3 amigos all took their turns playing in the water, only pausing to give me the look of, "next time don't be such a dingbat," then proceeding to continue their frolicking.

So here is the skinny on the filters. They really don't consist of much other than a fibrous trapezoid shaped to fit in your Drinkwell filter slot. They do have a black carbon side with some carbon granules between both sides that is supposed to remove odor from the water. How much odor it takes out I cannot say. But I am sure it does help.

These filters will not take out anything that would be considered harmful like hard metals or even any minerals. They are not made for that purpose. They are made to keep things like hair or food particles from recirculating. And they function quite well for that purpose.
