I bought this after having one of our cats in the emergency hospital for a bladder blockage. The vet said cats notoriously don't drink enough water and if they're male and only eat dry food it can be a deadly combo. So canned food and a new fountain later, so far so good. It took a couple of days for the cats to drink from it, but one of the three loves it now. It is noisy, but it doesn't bother me from where it is located. You have to keep it filled or it can burn the motor up. I put filtered water in it daily and clean it about once a week. It's very easy to clean and love that there is very little plastic parts. A+ all the way
From personal experience I can confirm that cats drink more often from fountain than from water bowl. This is our second water fountain, and this one is a breeze to set up and clean. You must rinse filter to wash off charcoal dust but even if you find some in water it is not harmful for pets. I make sure to replace filter every 3 weeks and clean the complete fountain, including the pump, but the process takes only few minutes. Both our cats love it!!!
