The Drinkwell Brand
Did you know that moving water is thought by wild animals to be much cleaner and fresher than still water? This is because the movement of the water prevents bacteria from growing in it. This is the logic that led to the creation of the Drinkwell brand of pet drinking fountains. Designed with an activated carbon filter to ensure that our pets can enjoy tasteless and odorless water, their pet fountains can make pets get the hydration that they need. In 2009, the PetSafe brand acquired Drinkwell Pet Fountains, joining a group of companies dedicated to providing the best products for pets.
The Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain
While we humans are made up of about 60% water, our pets are 80% water. That’s why it’s important to keep them hydrated and get them the proper amount of water every day. The stainless steel fountain can hold enough water to keep your pets hydrated and with the constantly moving water going through an activated-carbon filter, your pets are sure to enjoy fresh clean water.
Whether you have one pet in the home that needs to be hydrated or more than a handful of them, then the Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain may just be what you need. With a 128oz. capacity, this pet drinking fountain can hold enough water for your pets, no matter what size they are.
It also encourages your pets to drink more with its changeable free-falling streams. You can choose between 1 to 5 streams depending on how many pets you have, and the 360 design works for multiple pet households. You can also adjust the flow of the water to what would best suit your pets.
This pet fountain is made of stainless steel so you can trust that it’s perfectly hygienic for your pets. It is also dishwasher safe (except for the pump), so you can just pop it into the dishwasher to clean it.
If you’re worried about the sound of steadily flowing water, then worry not. This fountain’s pump is designed to be submersible in order to reduce the sound of the water for a relatively quiet operation.
Your pets are also guaranteed to have clean water, because aside from the oxygen added by the constant movement of water, a filter also catches any debris that could get mixed into your pet’s water.
