PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain Review

PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain review
Written by Tillie Bailey

Do you worry about your dog’s hydration? We all know how important it is for our dogs to have access to clean and fresh water all the time. Besides, one of the greatest things that dog owners can do for their dog is to provide a source of clean water. However, it’s not as easy as it seems. This is the part to introduce PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain.

My dog does not drink stagnant water from his dog bowl even if I constantly change the water. Even so, my dog jumps in the kitchen table to drink from our cups and keeps on trying to drink from our sinks. It has become his habit and has completely ignored his dog bowl. But after the search for a water dispenser, the dog fountain did the trick. We recently found this PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain, and I’m so excited to share our experience so far.

Dog Magnet

This dog water fountain has free-falling steam that entices dogs to drink more. My dog was already checking it out the moment I installed it at home. The moving water has always been so inviting, so my dog has been getting proper hydration ever since. He even notices when his dog fountain is not on its spot whenever I’m cleaning it.

Safe and Filtered Water

The replaceable carbon filters included in the set removes bad tastes and odors. However, it needs to be replaced regularly or as needed. The more pets you have, the higher frequency you need. No worries, replacement filters can be bought anywhere and even on Amazon. I suggest to buy them in bulk to save money. We all know how filtered water tastes like and that’s why my dog has been enjoying his water ever since.

Long-lasting and Durable

When I plan to buy products, I tend to read feedbacks first to make sure that it is worth the money. A lot of clients testified that they have been using this dog water dispenser for two years and even more; and it’s still working well! The key to this success is to entirely break down the entire unit and give it a full cleaning weekly. There was even one client that has been using the same model since 2003.

When I buy products, I always look if it is backed up by a warranty since that extends the lifetime and functionality of the item. This automatic dog waterer comes with a one year warranty! That’s not all; the best part is that the parts are easy to find. If one part of the unit goes down, you’ll have no trouble finding a replacement.

Uncomplicated Cleaning

PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain is designed to be disassembled easily so cleaning wouldn’t be a pain. Thus, it is made of BPA-free plastic which is dishwasher safe. No trouble on my end! However, it must be thoroughly cleaned regularly with soapy water from the outside up to the inside of the unit. And this is the only disadvantage I experienced so far. The pump must be cleaned too to keep it running for years. Don’t let it get super gross and slime-coated or else; your dog will be drinking dirty water. Don’t wait for that!

I currently feel better about my dog drinking filtered moving water instead of stagnant water. I figured out that my dog prefers to drink moving water and that’s the reason why the dog fountain has become his favorite. This PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain is the answer to my prayers. It is undoubtedly one of the best dog water dispensers! It just requires proper cleaning maintenance to last long. I definitely recommend dog owners to get this item for their pets.
