Drinking plenty of water is as essential for your pet’s health as it is for your own. By providing a constant stream of falling water the innovative Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain makes drinking more attractive and fun for your pet as well as more convenient for you. No longer will your pet have to slurp stagnant water from a traditional bowl or hop onto the kitchen counter to try to drink from the sink. A patented 5-inch free-falling stream of water gives your pet a refreshing drink from any angle so she no longer has to wait her turn for a quick drink. The replaceable charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors. The pump is submersible to ensure nearly silent operation. The curved receiving ramp prevents falling water from splashing on your floor. Rubber feet keep the fountain secure on your floor. Runs on a low-voltage 12-volt system that plugs into your wall outlet. Holds 50 ounces of water. Easy to take apart for quick cleaning. Covered by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
