Outstanding & Useful Fountain, 9/15/14
by
This fountain has been a terrific improvement from the last and smaller fountain we used previously. It holds a ton of water that we don't have to refill for about 7 days for our two retrievers. We have used it for the past 3 months and it doesn't build up calcium on the edges. We also like that right behind the charcoal filter there is enough room to slide a packet of lawn burn preventative. In the summer it sits beautifully on our patio, in the winter we bring it indoors. If there was a moderate heater added to it for winter use that would be well worth it. Overall we are extremely happy with this fountain and will recommend it to our friends.

its an allright fountain, 12/23/13
by
Overall the fountain arrived quickly. It is large and convenient. Perfect for a household of cats. They love it! and that's what counts. It is solid and will not tip. I only have to clean it out and refill it once a week with 10-15 cats. (I do animal rescue-not a hoarder)
It is noisy. This is not a quiet fountain, so if you don't like the sound of running water it will drive you nuts. Took some getting used to.
It arrived with a large scratch but I put that side next to the wall so it's not noticeable. It was also missing the 2 plastic pre-filters. Not a deal breaker since I have cats but if I had a large dog I would have returned it or ask that they ship them out. The pre-filters are supposed to trap hair before the foam filter does.
I have bought several of the other fountains listed on this site and this one is the best of the bunch. If you are looking for a fountain, this is the best one I have seen so far.

My dog and cats love this!!, 12/3/13
by
I have used many of the other fountains before and still have a smaller one upstairs, but keep this fountain on a waterproof pad in the kitchen!! It sounds like a small waterfall in our breakfast area. We have a medium sized dog and three cats (five of them when our daughter and her two kitties come to visit) and they all share the fountain. The dog likes to drink from the bowl part, while most of the cats like to lap up the water from the "waterfall." This is one of the easiest fountains to clean and keep filled. It stays clean very well and I only have to take it apart to clean it every three weeks--I just add water as needed and change the filter every week. I highly recommend this product.

Excellent, exactly what I'd hoped for, 9/19/13
by
I love this fountain so much that it isn't used outdoors - it's their regular, indoor water bowl. The 3 gallon retainer is wonderful with 3 large dogs in the house, very convenient as it lowers the required refills - previously, it seemed every time I turned around they needed fresh water. It's also much fresher - putting water in a large bucket and letting it sit until it was low revealed just how much slobber and debris could settle in their water, and of course it always ran the risk of growing stagnant, frequently leaving a coat of slime on the bucket itself.

Dissatisfied with constant refills or inadequate watering options, I searched for larger drinking bowls that would actually be useful to me - and discovered this fountain. By cycling and filtering the water, it's kept fresh enough for them to drink and the reservoir is the perfect size, allowing me a water refill twice a week rather than twice a day. And, personally, I find the sound of the water flow very soothing.

I may be buying a second one in the near-future, specifically for outdoor use while they spend their mornings in the yard. For me, it's the perfect bowl.

Great for Mastiffs, 9/17/13
by
Bought this when I got my english mastiff bc I would have to change the water bowl 3 times a day due to the dirt etc that he collected in his mouth. This at least lets me go a few days before I need to clean the bowl and with a dog that drinks a gallon+ everyday its nice having 3.5 gallons there for him.
