My cats love running water and this is the perfect solution! Great product!
Update on my original review...it's now June 2005, I originally purchased this product mid-2003. It's still running like new, I still love it, and so do my cats.

Even after reading several reviews, I was still skeptical that my cats (both of them sink drinkers for 3 years) would switch over. My husband and I were worried about the amount of water they were getting, since we were not home during the day to give them fresh water and they would *not* drink from their bowl. One week after purchasing the waterer, both cats were drinking from the fountain like they had their entire lives. Training was relatively easy as well, we would just pick them up from the sink and take them to the waterer each time they jumped up on the counter. The unit is very quiet and simple to assemble, also seems easy to clean so far. Well worth the money, plus it is cheaper on Amazon.com than some other sites I found.
ok but way overpriced. an in tank cheap aquarium filter will do the same job in a larger container for much less $$.

I have had one of these for a few years. Love it so much I'm getting a second one for the cats who are mostly upstairs.
Kitty loves flowing water

Celeste loves her Fresh Flow Fountain, now she doesn't whine to have us turn on the bathroom faucet for a quick drink. It is easy to fill, clean, change the filter and is quiet. The cat is happy, we're happy.
We bought the Petmate to encourage our kitty to drink more water after he had to undergo perineal urethrostomy ("PU") surgery. One of the things the vet wanted him to do was drink more. And this has been a great device! The pump did die after 9 months of continuous use (and regular cleanings because the filter on it does clog with gunk and hair every few days). But the replacement pumps are pretty inexpensive on this site and it's definitely doing it's job. I'd definitely buy it again especially for the fact I can replacement pumps as they give out without having to buy a whole new unit.
This is the worst prouct I've ever purchased in my life, it is louder then my dishwasher.
I've had it less then 2 months and if it can't be returned I am tossing it in the garbage.
My oldest cat is 13 years old have had this product since she was a baby.
I have only replaced the motor one time!
Make sure you use distilled water only and not tap water to keep it working well and change your filters every 1-3 months.
Soak the motor and other parts in a solution of 1/2 red vinegar and water when you change filters and are cleaning.
Do this, and you will have a perfectly running machine and you and your cats will be happy for life!
