The Drinkwell Platinum pet fountain is a smart product to encourage your cat to drink more water. By drinking more it helps preventing health risks from dehydration, not to mention that the sound of running water is soothing and relaxing.

The water is filtered by a replaceable charcoal filter to keep the water clean and free of debris. The activated carbon replacement filters are made of coconut shells. The coconut shells are carbonized and then carbon is activated by adding back oxygen, creating a material for absorption. Activated carbon absorbs water contaminants and chemicals like chlorine from tap water. This removes odors and improves the taste of the basic drinking water.

The patented, free-falling stream aerates the water with oxygen for freshness. It does not need to get connected to a water line so it’s perfect for indoor use. Constant circulation combined with the filtering technique prevents bacteria growth in between cleanings. The unit comes with a new kind of submersible pump for a more silent operation and it allows you to adjust the water flow level with a control valve.
