Petmate Water fountains.

Hi All,

Looking to buy a petmate water fountain, found these on Ebay, would save about 10 bucks compared to petsmart, any one else have these?

I've had 2 Petmate water fountains. The first one's little motor thingie died and the 2nd one was so loud I just got rid of it. I now have a Drinkwell and LOVE it! So does my kitty that likes to drink out of the bathroom faucet. She prefers it to the Petmate because of the way the water comes out, more like out of the faucet than down the little slide like the Petmate has.

I have one. Mine is white though. I absolutely love it and so does Abby.

It's very quiet. I don't hear it at all unless it's running out of water and then it's designed to make a noise.

I find it very easy to clean. Just unplug the cord. Take the unit to the sink. Take off the top, remove the filter. Dump out the water. Wipe the bowl with a clean damp cloth. Refill the bowl. Rinse the filter and put it back in. Add water to the container. Plug it back in. Takes me all of about 3 minutes to do from start to finish.

i also find that the petmates are quieter than the drinkwell, except when the water gets low.
i prefer the drinkwell, because it's easier to clean... but 4 out of 5 of my cats seem to prefer the petmate.

We always use the Drinkwell, we're on our fourth one now, I believe. This one is the Platinum Drinkwell, and it's terrific, my girlies love it!

Mine love their PetMate Deluxe, it's very quiet and easy to clean. They enjoy drinking from the top of the ramp

I have it in black... It's now the go-to drinking station for the cat and the dog.

I bought one, $33 bucks including shipping on ebay and no tax, saves me about 10 bucks compared to petsmart.

I have the one in that picture but mine is black, I've never seen the blue ones before. I love it, they drink so much more water with it. Have not had any problems with it.

I have another Petmate one, it looks like that but with stainless steel on the ramp and bottom edge (not the Platinum fountain) and it broke after about 2 days. It started leaking and I can't figure out where the leak is.

I have a Petmate Delux that the kitties love and I have 2 Drinkwells that the kitties love. I will be adding another Petmate though.
