A licensed veterinarian, Dr. M. Burns wanted to solve a problem with one of her pet cats named "Buckwheat." Buckwheat would only drink water if it was from a running faucet. Buckwheat would lay around waiting for someone to turn on the faucet, and that caused problems like having Dr. M forget to turn it off. Water bill was high from the running faucet, so she decided to create the Drinkwell Pet Fountain.
Great filter for the drinking fountain by Sadie from Texas05/01/2014
My four four-legged children have their own drinking fountain, and they love it. As the water recycles, the filter keeps it clean and I only have to change the water and clean the fountain once a week and the filter gets a good cleaning rinse as well. That keeps the fountain running, and they have fresh flowing water 24/7! It's been a blessing. I just keep a large bottle of water next to it to refill it each day until it's time to clean...and you'll be able to tell. It's great!
Useful product great price by MaryB from Florida10/22/2012
I've used these filters before and found them very good for keeping the water fountain clean. I have a multi cat household and they are very fussy about the cleanliness of their water. Found them supplied here at a great price, delivered direct to my door. Thanks!
Hard to know if it's the right one by Gretcheypoo03/20/2013
I ordered these filters because the picture looked right. No measurements listed in the description. Had to get 6 packages to get my total order to qualify for free shipping. Had to open one to learn it's the wrong size. Can only return 5 because they won't take open packages. Have to pay return shipping. Customer serivce did not offer to help me get the right ones. I'll save you the guesswork. They measure 5.5 inches long by 3.25 wide.
replacement filters by jewels mon from Texas01/02/2014
I use these filters for my dog water system. Work very well. I even placed a double order.
beware! by deg03/16/2013
This filter does not fit the Drinkwell 360 fountain. The web page fails to mention this.
Unreceived purchase ! by "Disappointed " from Depew N.Y.12/30/2013
The cats love it. It's easy to maintain and clean. It's very, very quite. Go ahead and get one; you'll love it.
Works great! by nanscats from Cleveland, Ohio10/06/2013
These filters are perfect, easy to use, and I know they provide my feline with great filtered water.
Always reliable by Gretcheypoo03/20/2013
With 13 cats I'm still able to push these filters beyond the recommended amount of time between replacements.
It was a great purchase by Dasiy01/03/2013
My pets always have fresh water. They are always drinking water. I have 2 cats and they love it, I also have 2 dogs. I only have to change filter every 2 weeks . The filters keep the water clean. I would not be without.I also it helps keep my pets healthy.
Purchase by Cheryl from Greenville, TX09/11/2013
Very good service, quick arrival of product and good price
by fyryred from Fernley, NV11/08/2012
Glad Entirely Pets carries these filters for my Drinkwell 360 which my cats love.
Drinkwell Filters by Sandy12/11/2012
Wonderful product. Easy to clean and definitely reusable, probably no more than four times. You can tell by rinsing and shaking. Still making a noise when shaking, still good. Little noise, replace. All my cats love the fountain.
Necessary item by Ragdoll from Silverdale, WA05/27/2014
These filters were purchased along with the actual fountain. The water stays really clean.
Keeps water fresh by Hawk22271 from Abita Springs, LA06/05/2014
Drinkwell 360 is perfect. We have 3 cats and the filters do a great job of keeping water clean. We buy drinking water and put oxyfresh in it. I change water every 3 days because we have a cat that drinks water by sticking his foot in and licking off his foot. Filters last about 3 weeks.
A+ addition to 360 fountain by sandi121 from South Carolina09/16/2014
the filter catches the food and hair before it gets into the motor and water. you do need to rinse it out and it can go in the dishwasher on the top shelf. it is better to change it out a new one when the filter starts to look frayed or well used. this is A+ addition to your 360 fountain.
Effective and Economical by Dylan's Mommy from St. Augustine, FL09/05/2014
I use these filters for the PetSafe Avalon Fountain. They are not expensive and seem to last even longer than recommended while still keeping the water crystal clear and odorless. Recommend!
Drinkwell Charcoal Replacement Filters (4 Pack) by Owwie from Alaska05/28/2014
I tried to buy the product from the main retailer, they wanted more than double the purchase price for shipping. Entirely Pets charged me $0.87 less then they did (for just the product) for both the product & the shipping to Alaska. Then I got this annoyingly "Jehovah's Witness" wannabe survey email string DEMANDING that I write a review. Great product, horrible after purchase experience, and yes, I unsubscribed from the emails I chose not to receive in the first place.
great accompaniment to the drinkwell fountain by MaryB from Florida10/22/2012
Does a great job of cleaning all the nooks and crannies of the drinkwell fountains. I have two and these make it so much easier to maintain them.

Helpful for Cleaning Drinkwell Fountains by fyryred from Fernley, NV11/08/2012
I own a Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Fountain and I use these brushes every week when I clean the fountain. They really help with the cleaning process.
Finally! by sbrebach from New Orleans, LA06/09/2014
I have had a Drinkwell fountain for years, and have always struggled to find something that would properly clean the small areas. This kit works perfectly! And I'm sure I'll be using it for other things too!
We have the Drinkwell Fountain for our cats and I am always looking for great deals to keep my costs down on my purchases. Entirely Pets had the product I need for a very great price and they had free shipping. That was a great deal for me.
I will continue to purchase from Entirely Pets because they carry top quality products for affordable prices.
Still haven't received these by cat from Raleigh, NC04/23/2014
I received an email stating that these were on backorder and that's the last I heart. These are the second item that I have been pretty much left in the dark about.
Worth the Purchase by Nancy from Spring City, TN12/17/2013
Although I thought this extra reservoir would allow me to only have to fill their water once a week, with 5 cats I have to fill it about every 3rd day or so. But it is better than having to do it every day! It is easy to fill and replace back on the water dish. It gives them plenty of clean moving water that they love!
My english mastiff loved to drink out of my bathroom sink faucet (gross i know) so when I found this pet fountain I thought it would be perfect. He loves it!
Although I have found a few problems. 1) The motor on the bottom that pumps the water through the filter broke after a year. Just on the edge that screws in, it now leaks and is VERY difficult to take on and off to clean. 2) the filters aren't as easy to find within the last few months. 3) I think this would work a lot better for dogs that don't drool as much as mine. It gets clogged with slim and dog food, and must be thoroughly (with bleach) clean every 4-5 days or else it starts growing algae. YUCK! but all in all my dog loves it, its just a pain to clean. OH and P.S. Do NOT put the reservoir tank in the dish washer (it will melt (-: )
LOVE! by Cooper09/10/2008
We couldn't live without this item, both the dogs and cats will only drink from this!
Excellent purchase! by rpmsf from San Francisco, CA08/10/2012
My mastiff loves it. He is attracted to the running water. The fountain works flawlessly. The only thing I had to do was place it on an old feeding stand so that my mastiff could access the water more easily. I highly recommend this if you have a large or giant breed. Its capacity is 2-3 days.
good product by unkross02/23/2011
We have tried other brands of fountains but this is the best one so far.We have two large dogs and several cats and the other smaller dishes had to be filled several times a day and had problems with the pump pluging so they had to be cleaned daily. This dish is great because we only need to fill it once a day and clean twice a week (it is a little large so it is a little harder to clean) The other thing is they all love to drink from it so, they are all getting plenty of water and that is just better for the animals.
DON'T ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!!! by Rhonda from Eugene, OR08/17/2013
I ordered procucts that said were in stock when they weren't all in stock so they didn't ship anything out for a couple weeks and then it wasn't even my entire order. Plus they originally wouldn't give me my discount saying they would only apply it when the rest of my order came in stock and shipped which it never did. A month later I finally got them to give me my discount and cancel the rest of the order that I'd actually needed 3 weeks before. Terrible company with terrible customer service!
by from 12/04/2011
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.

Should have Gotten this Sooner! by nanscats from Cleveland, Ohio09/26/2013
My 10 year old feline was diagnosed with a urinary problem, and a drinking fountain was recommended to increase fluid intake. She loves it! Drinks not only from the bowl, but enjoys the free falling water from the taps. Thanks for a great product!
by Paula from Denver, Colorado09/03/2013
This was easier to put together than I thought when I first opened the box. My cat likes to drink from the kitchen water faucet- which I had to keep disinfecting regularily, so far he's started using the Drinkwell fountain, although he is not drinking as much water yet as he used to. Takes getting used to I guess. But it works just as advertised, is quiet, is made very well quality, and hopefully my cat will drink more water as he gets more used to it.
best water bowl... by catwomen from Seattle WA02/09/2014
I have the original version of this but would have preferred this stainless steel. However,years ago it wasn't as available. Yes I have had mine for years. My cats only wanted to drink from faucets or in the bathtub which caused a back up in the morning!! I had multiple water bowls available but noooo they wanted running water. I did try other "fountains" but this has been best. Yes, its a bit of maintenance but no big deal. I rinse the filters with hot water to get a bit more out of them. This IS worth the investment and filters and work. I do wish they would put short legs underneath it to keep area under dry and also decrease the diameter of the bowl so its easier for cats to reach the water flow. They don't drink from the bowl only the running flow! This attracts kitties to drink and thats important.
MORE USEFUL THAN I EXPECTED by Ragdoll from Silverdale, WA05/27/2014
One of our cats especially likes the fountain part and uses it exclusively. Another uses both the fountain and the bowl parts. Another cat was able to drink even when wearing a cone. She has allergies and must frequently go into a cone after scratching itches until the lesions heal. I have always fretted when she was in a cone because she didn't drink water and am so pleased that she can drink now.
by Kim H01/19/2012
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!
Best of all the Drinkwell fountains we purchased by Claudia from Idaho10/13/2013
This fountain is quiet and easy to clean with absolutely no splashing. Our cats are used to drinking from fountains, the standard Drinkwell and the Platinum, but it took them a couple of days to become accustomed to this one. I think the four water spouts confused them a bit, but they love it now.
Circulating water fountain by Paula08/04/2014
This water fountain works great and is so quiet (after it runs for the first 5 min.) - much better than other versions. Holds alot of water, and easy to clean (also much easier to clean than others). Only wish it was 1/2 the size - as I use this only for cats.
Drinkwell Stainless Steel 360 Fountain by Sharon from Denver, CO02/04/2014
I have 3 dogs and 2 cats that will drink from this fountain. I liked that it is stainless steel, this is the best material for water fountains.
One cat loves to drink from the spout and the others can share the large bowl below.
Recycling water is best, but you need to keep an eye on what sinks to the bottom and remember to flush and change water at least every 3 days.
Hopefully the longevity of this fountain will last longer than the other Drinkwells I have purchased in the past.
They love it by valhouli07/22/2012
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.
Best pet fountain by best pet fountain! from inverness, fl06/24/2013
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.
Works very well! by Frosty from Scottsdale, AZ04/15/2014
It took less than a day for my dog to love it. The cat wasn't so sure but she loved just watching the water fall.
It is reasonably easy to clean, just a little time consuming.
Overall, it is a great bowl. I would recommend this product.
Don't watse you money. by Jenn from Arlington,TX09/14/2011
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.
Our Cats Love It! by Nancy from Spring City, TN12/17/2013
We have 5 all indoor cats. Most of them like to drink out of the faucets at our sinks, so I thought they'd like this product - they do! I like that it not only has the dish of water but the faucet like fountain. It also has 3 speeds for the fountain (generates a larger flow). I purchased the extra water container as well. I used to have to fill it at least once a day, but now, only about every 3rd day or so!
Great Item by Joe07/26/2010
I've used this dish for two cats. The pump has run continuously 7 days a week, 24 hours a day for 7 years now - (except during power outages!) great water dish
Save your money... by Lily&Casper from baytown, tx04/27/2012
I was so excited when I first bought this in hopes that it would provide clean, cool, water for my pups to drink at all times. It works great for about a week or two and then the drama starts. I found that the filters don't last near as long as they say it will and the water gets pretty muggy from then on out. It's a lot of work to open it out and clean all the inside parts. If you're like me, then you want your pets drinking the same kind of water that you would drink yourself. I just didn't trust this fountain enough. I sold it in a garage sale. By the way, it takes seconds to clean out your pets' water bowls and refill it with clean, fresh water.
Just what I wanted. by Scooter from Bartlesville Ok12/30/2013
My 3 cats are drinking more water now and the one who likes to put his head under a stream of water really enjoys it.
Well Designed and Low Maintenance by Dylan's Mommy from St. Augustine, FL09/05/2014
This is the first pet fountain I've owned so I can't compare it to others, however the PetSafe Ceramic Avalon Fountain is great! It's been up and running for over a month now and it's exceptionally quiet and neat. The sound of the water is barely audible and there is no splashing at all. Though this fountain is supposed to be used indoors, I keep it on our covered porch and the ceramic still stays very clean. I have yet to change the filter but the water is crystal clear and odorless. This fountain is attractive and well designed with only a few simple parts so I can tell it won't be any trouble to take apart and clean when necessary. Plus, my cats love it! Highly recommend!
She likes it by tcgg from nj06/24/2014
It is bigger then expected, heavier, but works very well. Of course what I thought my cat would like was the water coming out the sides like a faucet, but all she likes is the the top water bowl. It doesn't matter because she likes it and drinks from it all the time which is all I wanted. Cleaning it is no more trouble then any other, but you have to be careful not to knock it against the inside of your sink. Something will be hurt by that.
horrible product. worked for 2 days and then sounded like a freight train. entirely pets would not let me return it. they did not stand behind the broken product and would do nothing about it. did not return my emails either.
Great product *** BUT ****** by Lynn06/12/2012
My cats love it, product itself is super..HOWEVER, Entirely Pets does not offer replacmenet filters (or a solution for same). I regret buying it now. My issue is not with the product....it's simply because the product is not good without the replacement filters.
My Pets All Love This Fountain! by JillyBean from Antioch, California09/11/2014
It runs quietly & looks great while doing it! Nestled in with some plants, it looks like a mini spa in the corner of my dining room. My cats drink from the top while my dog drinks from the bottom at the same time. All my pets are all drinking a lot more water now which was my reason for purchasing the fountain in the first place. The price was better than anything I could find at my local pet shop even with the shipping cost added in. I am very satisfied with this on every level.
Drinkwell Pet Fountain...Best Purchase Ever by Bella Ladin from Wallkill, NY06/02/2013
This Platinum Pet Fountain is the "BEST" item I have ever purchased for my animals. It's unbelievably quiet. I showed it to my daughter and she bought one for her pets as soon as she saw it.
No more empty water bowls...no more spilled water all over the floor. Thank you Drinkwell...you have a great product!
A Good Thing To Have by Rick from Ontario, CANADA08/26/2013
Since I adopted my cat Charlie 5 months ago, I never once seen him drink water out of his water dish, but as soon as I put the Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain by his favorite hangout spot, it took him only 4 days to figure out that it was fresh water just for him! He slurps water out of it now twice or more daily, he just love to drink water now. I only have to refill the reservoir once every 2 weeks!!
not worth the money or the effort by goodog from New Yorkj, N.Y.09/18/2013
I left this filled for the dog for over a week. I never saw him go near it. I finally had to put down a standard water bowl for fear he would become dehydrated. This sounds good but does not function well. Set up instructions were so unclear that it took me two hours. Had to figure it out myself. I returned it but received only a merchandise credit. Entirely Pets does not cover returns so I had to return it at my own expense at usps for about $20. It was a lose/lose proposition. Stay away.
drinkwell is great company by boots from denver05/14/2014
drinkwell is always a great product. proven track record. The water fountain is quiet and nice looking and the cats love it.
Great product! by JannieB07/28/2012
This works so well in keeping my dogs water fresh & clean. My dogs will only drink from the bowl with the Drinkwell Hy-Drate system in it. I love it & they do too.
Drinkwell Hydrate is a hit with me and the cat.. by pollie from ohio01/01/2013
I had previously bought a horrendously expensive fountain. ( 49.99) it had a dome with a center "fountain " the water flowed up the fountain and spilled over the dome.. it was horrid to maintain. and took ages to clean.. this little water fountain fits into virtually any bowl and is very quiet.. it is soo easy to open and clean and it keeps the water running.. the cat loves it.. I love it too because it is very very good value for money and easy to use and maintain.. I would recommend this to everyone who has a pet..
Great alternative to expensive water fountain! by Kelly from Lincoln, NE08/11/2012
My cat Dodger loves drinking water out of his bowl with this great little pump circulating and filtering the water. Before we got this pump, I bought an expensive porcelain fountain in an effort to prevent Dodger from getting cat acne on a plastic fountain. Instead of drinking out of the porcelain part of the fountain, he insisted on drinking on the one small plastic part where the water comes out. He started getting cat acne right away. We got rid of the fountain and got this submersible pump for his porcelain water bowl. Since then, Dodger has stopped getting on the bathroom vanity at four o'clock in the morning and meowing for running water from the faucet. He gets his aerated water 24/7 and doesn’t get cat acne. I get to sleep. It's the perfect solution and inexpensive too!
by from 02/05/2013
No one is interested in this. If I leave the water trickle for the kitten, she'll play and snap at the water for a few minutes. So, I bought this thinking they'd or she'd use it...the humming just irritated them so they wouldn't go near it.
