Design and Features
The Cat Mate Fountain is very small, and compact in size, so it shouldn’t take up too much space. The fountain isn’t anything fancy in terms of its design, but should look fine in any room in your home. The Cat Mate Fountain feels very well made; therefore it should last for quite some time. It has 3 tiers, and a waterfall that enables more than one pet to drink at once. Furthermore, it has a generous 2-litre water capacity. Which is ideal for a small dog or up to three cats. The Cat Mate Fountain comes with a low voltage power supply for safety. This fountain uses just 2-watts of power. So you should not notice it on your electricity bill.
In addition, it comes with a 3-metre power cable, allowing you to place this fountain anywhere in your home. The Cat Mate Fountain is fitted with a polymer-carbon filter, which purifies the water. Also no plumbing is required with this unit, as the whole device is self-contained. So just keep the bottom bowl topped up to the clearly marked “maximum” level with cold water on a daily basis. Never let the water level drop below the “minimum” mark.
The Cat Mate Fountain is very easy to set up, and use. It was that easy to set up, that we did not have to refer to the instructions. However there are instructions included if you need them, which are very easy to follow and understand. The fountain comes with 1 filter included. The filter keeps the water, fresh, filtered and free from odours. Our westie absolutely loved drinking water from this device. He now drinks more water than ever, and will only drink from this fountain. It is recommended to change the filter monthly (if not sooner) to keep the device working effectively. And it is also recommended to buy the official Cat Mat filters to help prolong the life of the pump. The official filters cost around £4.50 for 2, which is very affordable.
The Cat Mat Fountain has a generous 2-litre water capacity. Which should last the whole day. Furthermore, the device is very easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. You will need to clean the pump every few weeks (or more frequently in hard water areas) to prevent limescale build-ups. The pump’s output is easily adjustable, and the gentle flow is directed down an inclined water ramp to eliminate splashing and reduce water loss. Furthermore, the pump is incredibly quiet in operation. So you should not hear it when in operation. Finally, the Cat Mate Fountain has a three-year manufacturer’s guarantee and the replaceable pump has a one-year guarantee.
Overall the Cat Mate Fountain is an excellent water dispenser for pets who need or like to drink more water. Furthermore, it is much quieter and easier to clean than other brands. Therefore we could highly recommend this device to anyone. Click here to buy from Amazon.
