Pros: My cats love the way the water flows out of it, in an arch.
I have tried several fountains but always come back to this one.
My cats love it.....it seems that the way the water comes out in an arch attracts them more than a bubbler.
I have had three of them in the past ten years, so I am an old hand at taking them apart to clean, although its not hard to do it, really. And once you get used to it, you can do it in your sleep.
I live in south Florida so we had a problem with its water getting slimy in less than a week due to heat and humidity, even in air conditioning......
so I had to take it apart and wash it every three days, which was too much for me due to my schedule, so I stopped using the fountain.
Then a year later when one of my cats got a urinary tract issue, I got another one of these to use, to encourage her to drink and oddly, its not getting slimy now, and I can scrub and wash it weekly. Maybe they put a different coating on it, or its less porous? not sure but its working well for us.
Its a tried and true model and a good value at the price. I use bottled spring water with it, because our tap water in my area is not the best.
