The Ceramic Pet Fountain.
Unlike plastic pet fountains that develop cracks, this drinking fountain is made from durable, nonporous glazed ceramic that mitigates bacteria growth. Ceramic resists bacteria (commonly found on porous plastic surfaces) that cause acne on a pet's mouth and chin.
The ceramic drinking fountain is dishwasher-safe, enabling simple, thorough cleaning. The fountain has an integrated pump that draws water from the basin to the top of the dome where it pools and cascades back into the reservoir. The falling stream attracts pets with the sound of trickling water and entices them to drink more often--a practice that can reduce the pet's risk of kidney disease and urinary tract infection.
A charcoal filter removes impurities responsible for unpleasant tastes and odors in water. The fountain has a 72-oz. capacity and the filter lasts up to 30 days.
Plugs into AC.
14" L x 11" W x 4-1/2" H. (7 lbs.)

This was the third fountain I tried. My cats are very picky. I love it! I think the ceramic bowl is what made the difference. Also, it holds a good amount of water so I'm only adding a little more every second day or so. I would highly recommend this to anyone. My cats are fully automated now! Litterbox, dry food and now an excellent source of fresh filtered water. My cats love it! One prefers drinking from the top tier and the other from the base bowl :)
My cats would not use the fountain for several days and seemed afraid of it. Finally, they are using it and even play in it somewhat, which is fun to watch!!! I like the sound it makes.
Very easy to clean (almost every piece can go into the dishwasher). Very quiet too!
Ceramic is much better than plastic. We had a plastic one and our oldest cat got acne from it. Now that she uses this one, it has cleared up and the girls are happy!
This water fountain is great! My cat has had the habit of jumping up on the sinks in hopes of licking from a trickle stream. It was cute at first, but after a while it was the only way she'd take a drink.
She was a little shy of the fountain at first, but now hit's it regularly and I've noticed less attempts to sit on the sink.
It's a winner.
While it is a little heavy, and breakable of course, and--perhaps my only serious complaint--the filters are expensive and involve plastic--overall, this is a great product. Attractive, simple, relatively quiet and surely very good for hygiene and health of the cat.
I upgraded from a Petmate plastic fountain, and feel it was well worth the expense.
Throwing it in the dishwasher is GREAT.
Note: it must be very full of water or it will be noisy.
I have purchased other water fountains for my cats, but each was made from plastic. Not good for pets. Hard to clean. Now they are boxed up in my shed. Pets will get acne from plastic dishes and bowls. So finally they had this great idea to make it out of ceramic. All my cats love it. Easy to clean and large enough for multiple cats. THANK YOU !!! THANK YOU !!!! Again :)
I was so excited to find a ceramic fountain for my cats, since they were starting to break out from the plastic fountain I owned previously. I haven't owned it that long, however so far I am very happy with it. It is so much easier to clean, it's quiet and the cats really like it. Plus I don't have to feel bad about the plastic or cringe when I see their chins. So happy I found this:) I haven't had to replace any filters yet, but I may just put in filtered water since sending away for them seems like a little bit of a hassle- time will tell.
Was pretty loud for the first 20 minutes, which made my cat hide from it, but then got nice and quiet. My cat had gotten the little sores around her mouth from the plastic fountain, so was looking for a healthier alternative. So far this fits the bill.
I've been looking for a fountain that would be easy to clean, and I finally found one! I've only washed it by hand so far, but it is nice that it can go in the dishwasher. My cats seem to love it too!
The unit looks good but there is no battery included, it is inoperable, is there a way to get the battery shipped in lieu of returning unit.
This was such an easy fountain to assemble!! I've had plastic ones in the past that got slimy and were hard to clean. This one is dishwasher safe!!! Couldn't ask for more!! Plus, the water stays cold, and here in Texas, that's important. And it never gets slimy. Plus, it's really quiet and fits in any decor. I would say make sure you rinse the filter really well. I didn't and some coal filtered into the water the first time I had it on. I just rinsed it out, no problem. So happy I bought this!
This filtered system is wonderful. Clean water for my pets and a great filtration system that is QUIET. You do have to clean the filter out weekly, but that is no problem when it comes to the health of my pets. Far better than the plastic ones offered in National Chain Pet Shops.
Do buy one if you care for your pets.

VERY EASY TO CLEAN. MY CAT HAD BEEN USING A PLASTIC FOUNTAIN AND GETTING KITTY ACNE. HE SEEMED TO TAKE TO THE NEW FOUNTAIN RIGHT AWAY. IT'S VERY QUIET AND HOPEFULLY BETTER FOR HIS HEALTH. FILTER IS VERY SIMPLE TO CHANGE TOO.
Unlike plastic fountain, with its many pieces with nooks & crannies that get yucky, the ceramic fountain is a dream to clean - you'll be happy to do it every day! Very quiet, cats love it - even the one who only would drink out of a running faucet in the sink.
My cats did not go near this fountain, and it always had black marks in the bottom of the fountain and produced dirty water!
We have three other pet fountains, each of different design, but all plastic. I found this ceramic unit quite noisy. In addition the pump throughput was too low to produce the type of cascade that agitates the water in the basin, aerating it and attracting our cats. Finally, the pump/cascade assembly does not anchor firmly in place on the bottom of the basin, and our cats pushed it around, creating even more noise.
I returned the unit for refund.
The photo is deceiving. The fountain runs on electric current, so you will have a cord and plug to deal with. Second, the unit is very sensitive to the pump's position, the bridge apparatus and water level. Seems like we are always fiddling with it to keep it bubbling the way it should. Disappointed I spent so much on this, when my cat was perfectly happy with the old arrangement.
I bought the fountain for my Mom's two cats as their old one had broken. My Mom thought she would have to entice one of her cats to come near the fountain so she put some treats on the floor next to it. The cat ignored the treats, drank from the fountain for about three minutes, and then laid down next to it. The other was a little more cautious at first but could not resist for long. I would say, knowing these two animals, that this was a raving endorsement on their part. Overall, it appears to be well-made, is easy to set up, is quiet, and looks much better than any of the plastic ones Mom used to own.
I have had two other 'filter/pump' cat water dishes, this is one is the best to date. When the water level is maintained, the pump is virtually silent. In addition the simplicity of the design allows for much easier cleaning then the others I have tried.
2 of my cats have acne because of the plastic water fountain that I had been using. When I saw the Ceramic Fountain I knew I had to get it. All 3 of my cats took to it right away and it was really easy to put together. So glad I bought it!!!
We have three beautiful maine coon cats. One of them, has had a cronic bladder infection for several years. He is addicated to dry food only. On a recent flight I saw the Ceramic Pet Fountain and it is absolute the best source of drinking water ever. Bootzi has been drinking much more water and enjoys sitting by it just listening to the sound of the water. I would advocate this particicular item for any type of cats, as it inticeses them to drink. thank you so very much.
We have 5 picky cats. This fountain is simply amazing. Very quiet. Easy to set up. Delivery took only 2 days after ordering.
With our two dogs always thirsty, and being Scottish Terriers, their beards left silt in their bowls, we ordered and started using the fountain-ized ceramic drinking fountain. It is wonderful!! the water is filtered, and stays pure and clean...only thing is they are loving and drinking more water!!
This was the worst money spent for a pet waterer. The ceramic bowl is so shallow that it is difficult to keep the water level high enough to keep the pump running while also not trying to overfill the bowl because the water cascading down the slides pushes the water right over the edges of the bowl. Additionally, this bowl may be resistant to bacteria growth, but it scratches very easily and all of the plastic parts such as the pump are not resistant to growing algae/slime. I would not recommend this product to anyone and quite frankly have now since chucked this thing in the garbage.
A bit difficult to empty water to clean it and unless the water is right to the top, the fountain won't flow.
As someone who has tried three other pet fountain brands, I have to say this is by far the best! Other fountains have lots of plastic parts that collect the mold and calcium deposits from water and are very difficult to clean. But, this fountain has no hard-to-reach corners, nothing hard to clean. In fact, it's the only one you can throw in the dishwasher! My cat drinks plenty of water now and she's not afraid of a loud waterfall. This one is a gentle fall along the sides of the ceramic. Love it! Highly recommend!
i followed the directions carefully, cleaned it thoroughly, and rinsed the filter as instructed with cold water. I filled it up with spring water and there was a greasy film buildup in the water.
I bought this fountain a couple weeks back. I was out of town so just set it up yesterday.
Already the cats love it. I had a different fountain before that was hard to clean and with being plastic caused problems.
this one is so much quieter and I love that it is so easy to set up and take apart when you have to clean it. I was concerned at first that it might have required a lot more room than my previous one, but it fits perfectly and actually holds more water!
All fountains (the good ones) for cats are not cheap but if you have cats, especially males who are prone to bladder & kidney infections, getting them to drink lots of water is a must and this one solves that!
I followed the directions exactly, but it does not work, and I am going to send it back.
I like the concept, but the implementation could be a bit better. Specifically, the two plastic pieces that house the pump and filter are very thin and flexible and don't fit well together. I expected a better fit and more positive closure. I've only taken it apart once to clean it so far, but I wonder about the longevity of this critical part?
Now my cats get fresh water all the time and I don't have to worry about that slimy build up from plastic container.
I love this pet fountain and have 2 of them. You need to know that the pump eventually wears out after a few years and then you will need to return the fountain and get an entirely new one. But you will get the new one at a discounted price.
As soon as I put this down for my 17 year old cat. He loved it. ! Drinks more water now too
I have been looking for a fountain for a long time all though this one is a little pricey my cat loves it. So glad I purchased it because fresh water reduces their chances of a UTI
I bought this about 3 weeks ago, I have two cats and one is finally starting to use it. I like that it's ceramic, very easy clean, very durable. The motor is fairly quiet so it doesn't scare the cats away. I'm having a hard time getting them to use it. I thought they'd take to it more by now. It's great it has a filter to keep the water fresh, and I hate it has a filter because you have to buy them, it would be great if they were washable and reusable.
We bought the pet fountain 4 years ago and it recently went bad (the motor). I contacted the company and received a brand new fountain! We had to wait awhile, due to holiday returns falling around the same time as my return. TOTALLY worth the wait!
