The Drinkwell Platinum Pet fountain has the same innovative water system unique to the Drinkwell Pet Fountains by Petsafe. The patented design provides a free-falling stream of water to entice your pet to drink plenty. Research shows that keeping your pet well-hydrated is one of the keys to ensuring its optimum health and wellness.

This pet fountain has a replaceable carbon water filter that eliminates unpleasant tastes and odors. The activated carbon filters are made from coconut shells that have gone through a carbonization process.

This process removes all other elements save for the carbon, then the carbon is activated by adding oxygen, thus creating a material that is well-suited for absorption. Activated carbon has the ability to absorb basic water contaminants found in tap water such as chlorine, thus improving the taste and quality of the water.

Since pets can get quite rowdy and careless, the snap-on lid feature of this pet fountain ensures that the lid is not removed accidentally. A stable rubber base is also a great feature in this design because it prevents the water fountain from moving, slipping, and tipping over. This makes for less-cleanups from unwanted accidents or spills.

The pump is also ensured a long life because of the pre-filter which catches big particles such as pet hair and prevents them from reaching the pump, and the submersible pump makes the fountain almost completely noise-free. With its 5-inch free-flowing fresh water stream, pets are enticed to drink more. Bacteria and mold growth are also reduced because of the constant circulation of air and water.

The see-through reservoir tank makes it easy to see how much water is left, and its large size makes for fewer refills and minimum spillage. Cleanups are also easier because of the pet fountain’s BPA-free plastic design that is top-shelf dishwasher safe.

The Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain can also be easily cleaned by purchasing the brush set with a large flared-sponge-tipped brush for easy cleaning of the bowl and fountain, a medium brush for tubing and narrow corners, and a motor brush for scrubbing inside the pump’s cavity.

Pet owners who got the Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain are very happy with its reliability, quality, and proven efficacy. It is also found to be easy to use because of its easy to find replacement carbon filters that are easy to change.

When the pump starts to emit a buzzing noise, it is a great reminder that it’s time to refill the reservoir. With proper cleaning and regular maintenance, this pet fountain will give you years of use, making sure that your pet is provided great-quality flowing water the whole time.


Some users have reported that it can become quite a task to clean the pump and the reservoir, but provided with the right brushes, the chore becomes a tad easier. The rounded design of the reservoir tank is also a trouble to some people because it’s hard to fill it in the sink, and holding it with both hands while filling is considered to be a minor inconvenience for some people.


It is truly proven that moving water entices pets to drink more. Petsafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain has an overall great design and well-rounded features that will ensure that drinking is a good experience for your pet.

With its activated carbon filters, clean and fresh drinking water that is constantly circulated will definitely benefit your pet’s health and well-being. For the Drinkwell Platinum quality, you can’t beat this its price.
