What is a Drinkwell Plastic Pet Fountain?
Drinkwell Plastic Pet fountain has a free-falling stream of water that entices your pet to drink, keeping them hydrated.
Why should I buy this product?
The Drinkwell Plastic Pet Fountain was developed by Veterinarians to provide fresh, filtered water to your pet. The multiple free-falling streams of water will entice your pet to drink more and continually aerate the water with oxygen.
Research has shown that one of the best ways to improve your pet’s health is getting them to drink more water.
The Drinkwell Plastic Pet Fountain filters and aerates all the time, moving water to keep it fresher.
How often should I clean the fountain?
Drinkwell recommends cleaning the fountain once a month or more often if you see too much hair, dirt or debris in the bowl. The fountains are top-rack dishwasher safe except for the pump.
How often should I change the filter?
The charcoal filter should be changed every 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the number of pets using the fountain. If you have more pets or notice more debris, a slimy feel, or decreased water flow in your fountain, you should clean it more often. Pre-filters can usually be changed less frequently.
How do I get my pets to drink from the fountain?
Here are a few tips to help encourage your pet to use the fountain.
Set up the fountain without plugging it in. This way, your pet can get used to drinking from the fountain without the noise and splash of running water.
Plug in the fountain for short periods, until your pets begin to feel comfortable. Try setting it to a lower flow setting.
Once your pet is somewhat used to the fountain, remove other water sources.
If your pet is still not interested, make it more appealing with some flavouring. Remove the filter from the fountain, then add tuna juice or bouillon to the water until your pet is used to the new product. After that, clean the fountain, replace the filter, and refill the fountain with regular water.
Can I rinse the filter with soap to use it again?
No, the filter cannot be rinsed in anything but water. Washing your filter will allow the soap to seep into the pores and this cannot be removed making the filter unusable and unsafe for your pet
