Item Specifications:

Holds up to 50 oz.


  1. Inspect the bottom of the fountain to be sure the motor is securely attached.
  2. Remove the housing cover (lid) and insert the filter cartridge down into the well in the housing. It fits in the well diagonally.
  3. The bottom of the filter is narrower than the top and the black side faces outward (toward the spout). If the fit is too tight, it is either in upside down or in the wrong groove at the front (move it back one groove). Rinsing the filter before use will help remove any loose bits of charcoal, which are harmless.
  4. Fill the fountain with water, (both the bowl and the housing where the filter sits). See step 6.
  5. Place in desired location. If placing on carpet or wood floor, the use of a protective surface is recommended for under the fountain.
  6. Make certain the cord and plug are dry, then plug into a polarized outlet. (One slot is larger than the other.) The plug will only fit into a polarized outlet. Do not attempt to force it into an old,unsafe outlet. Use an adapter if necessary.
  7. There are notches for the power cord on both sides of the bottom of the fountain. The notches are a pass-through for the cord. They are not for holding the cord snugly, which might damage the cord. The cord should be passed through vertically. Do NOT turn the cord horizontally and force into a notch as this may damage the cord and create a hazard.
  8. Add more water to the bowl after the unit is primed and running. For quietest operation, fill bowl completely. A gentle hum during normal operation is to be expected.
  9. Set the desired flow rate with the flow control knob, which is next to the ramp in the bowl (minimum rate at 11 o’clock position, maximum rate at 1 o’clock position).
  10. Add water to the bowl as needed. (The bowl holds 50 oz. of water.) During regular use, do not allow the water level to fall below the inlet grate on the bottom of the flow control knob, or the motor may run dry.

My cat enjoys playing with the water in her bowl, so after reading many reviews, I thought I would try it.
Tiffany S on May 19, 2016
I have one of these for a while now and it just died. My cats really love it and it works great. I had mine for a long time, surprised it lasted as long as it did. And this price was fantastic.

cat doesn't drink enough water
patricia g. d on Apr 5, 2014
I have had one of these for years and had a problem with the other one, so I figured I would get a spare. They are great, especially for busy people who care for their cats.

Does the motor make noise other than sound of water?
Heidi S on Sep 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can only hear water when turned on. If searched on you tube there are videos of customers showing how to set item up and having item turned on.
Is this fountain plastic?
A shopper on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is made entirely of plastic including the pump.
Can a cat drink out of the bowl and not just the stream? I have one cat that likes to drink water out of the bathroom faucet, and another that likes the water that pools in the bathtub drain, but he makes a mess of paw prints. He also drinks out of a bowl. I need one water fountain for both of them.
Kristy on Jan 17, 2015
YES, your cat can drink from the bowl or stream. My cat used to wake me in the middle of the night to get a drink out of the bathroom faucet. And if I put it in a bowl, he would spill it. With the Drinkkwell Fountain, no more problems. Sometimes he drinks out of the bowl part, but mostly he drinks it as it comes out of the fountain. HE LOVES IT! He never bothered me again to drink from the bathroom faucet & he has a choice, drink from the flowing water or out of the base, either way he's one happy cat! Hope ythis helps. Have a PURRfect day. :)

cindy k on Nov 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: HI Cindy, I also have the Original Pet Fountain, which my cat loves. The Drinkwell Pet Fountain Premium Charcoal Filters are what you should use.
