Has anyone purchased the newer model of the Drinkwell fountain, the Platinum one? If so, how is it?

I don't know about the platinum one but darker colored Petmate water fountains tend to get dirty easily. We bought a blue one many years back & over the years, we couldn't get the white stuff off no matter what we tried. We chose to buy the white one - haven't seen any discoloration since
Hope you find a petmate water fountain that you & your cat like
Yes and I love it! I had the petmate fountain prior to the Drinkwell and it lasted about two years before the motor started to go out. We've had the Drinkwell for several months now and LOVE IT! The reservoir is much larger, meaning we have to fill it less often for the boys, and Oscar loves it better than the other. He's a faucet-loving kitty, so it's perfect for him.
If you have any specific questions about it, I'll be glad to answer them.
I have a Drinkwell Platinum and the cats and I love it.
I've tried Drinkwell original and was always happy with it so it was pretty much a given for me to try the platinum. I have also used the PetMate Fresh Flow and the CatIt fountains and ended up giving both away because I prefer the Drinkwells. The platinum I bought needed a bad motor replaced within the first two months and they were very friendly and prompt in sending a replacement so the company offers good service too.
In regards to cleaning, I find the fountains clean up best in the dishwasher.
Good luck in finding the fountain you and your cats will love.
