I have had this fountain (in Texas) since May 2011, so about 8 months now. I have had no issues whatsoever. Yes, you have to clean it at least once a week, but don't you have to clean, add new water to a normal bowl daily? It takes about 5 minutes to clean with hot, soapy water. Another tip - there is a filter being made for the 360 fountain that is reusable, you just add carbon. Go to Facebook - look up Forever Filter or Link at amazon is: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2FB0038Q4EZK%2F&h=XAQGYdsZD. They run out of stock alot, but just keep checking. Great filter.

We have 4 cats and have been thru 2 of the plastic drinkwells. If you don't use filtered water, the water makes a scratchy buildup on the plastic that stains it and you cannot get it off. LOVE the stainless one. Super easy to clean. Filter doesn't clog. Super quiet. Cats love it. Nuff said.

Our 4 Bengal Cats are really liking our new 360 Drinkwell. We had the original that lasted for years, but the time finally came to replace it and this one is very nice. I am concerned that the plastic clips holding down the ring in the bowl seem fragile and I do wish they had simply included a couple extra with the unit. Otherwise, we are very pleased!
Don't watse you money.
I thought this would be the greatest thing to have since I clean and refresh four water bowls a day at least 8 times each. Call me crazy. I have one Pom. The issues I had with the Drinkwell were many. The black clips that snap around the base/top are very brittle and break easily. I have broke two and had to get them replaced. I have had to stop using the fountain now all together after only having it for 30 days. It leaves a nasty slime in the bowl, the water is cloudy, the stainless steel in pitted. (Made in China) I have cleaned, sanitized and have done everything there possibly is to do to get these problems resolved. Not once but three times. I then contacted the manufacturer regarding my problem but they only told me what I already had done and blamed it on high humidity. Funny we live in Texas and it hasn't rained here in months. No humidity here to interfere. So in other words they didn't want to say their product was the problem and it was my weather and water source problem. I even supplied them a copy of our city water source review and report. The replacement water cartridges are very expensive and you need to replace those every 2 weeks as well.
So bottom line. Don't watse your time and money on this product. I so wanted this to be the last water bowl I would ever need. But is was a big $80 mistake. The manufactuer is not helpful either. So it's back to refill, refill, refill.
They love it
We have a 15 year old calico cat and 2 year old schnauzer. The other day they both were drinking from the fountain at the same time. Never thought I'd ever see the day... It's easy to clean and the adjustable flow allows me to control the noise level.
