Today I am reviewing a new fountain I recently purchased for the kittehs. I have used a Drinkwell Platinum Fountain for years. I was not aware that plastic fountains can get small cracks in it and harbor bacteria. Earlier this year, I went through a very unpleasant time where Dunkin was having stomach issues, with both vomiting and diarrhea. I firmly believe that he was getting sick from the water fountain. The fountain was about two years old. I replaced the fountain (with another Drinkwell), and his symptoms went away. I just figured that I would have to buy a new fountain every 6-9 months. Then I found a link to my new fountain.
The Glacier Point Perfect Pet Fountain.
The basin holds almost a gallon of water and there are slots on top for 4-32 oz bottles. I only put one at a time, and keep the bottles filled with water in the refrigerator. Nothing but the best for my babies.
The basin comes in red, white and blue. It has a cute logo on it. I spoke on the phone with the owner/inventor of the fountain for some time before I bought it and found Barry to be very knowledgeble about the product and most helpful. He answered all my questions and was not in a hurry to get rid of me.
I was very impressed with his customer service.
My main issue with the Drinkwell was the sliminess of the fountain. I took it apart every week and scrubbed it down. This fountain is a breeze to clean. You turn off the fountain, lift the plastic cover off (take off the bottles first), and scrub the basin, or throw it in the dishwasher. Easy Peasy.
Here is a link to the website if you are interested. I believe that they have a bigger fountain for dogs.
I feel much better about the water my babies are drinking now, and I don't worry about bacteria in the water. I have also noticed that the water is not slimy like it was with the Drinkwell.
Gracie says she gives the fountain 5 stars also!!!
