There are several pet fountains on the market today, but our favorite one by far is the Raindrop by Pioneer Pet! We have had the privilege of trying out a couple of different fountains, and we have to say that the Raindrop ranks #1 in our books.
Let’s take a quick look at why the Raindrop is so awesome:
- Circulating drinking water is naturally appealing to your pet. Studies have shown that animals prefer to drink from a running water source than from a stagnant one.
- It uses replaceable charcoal filters for clean and healthy water
- Its dishwasher safe, stainless steel construction allows for easy cleaning
- Using stainless steel bowls help to protect your pets from bacterial infection
- The modern rain drop shape compliments décor of any room
and our favorite feature…
- IT IS SILENT! Seriously. Unless you are standing right beside it, you won’t even know it’s running. And even then, all you hear is the quiet, almost inaudible hum of the motor.
*Not to point any fingers at a particular cat, but… *cough cough DELILAH cough cough*
Since we’ve had the Raindrop, I’ve noticed that the cats have been drinking more water. It’s rare that I catch them drinking, but the water level gets lower more often than with their regular water bowls or with the other fountains we’ve tried.
It really is incredibly easy to put together and clean too. It takes me just a couple of minutes to take it apart, clean it, and put it back together. It can be run through the dishwasher as well, which is great. Plus, the replacement parts and filters aren’t expensive, so it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to maintain.
(For optimal performance, Pioneer Pet recommends that you clean the fountain once a week and disassemble/clean the pump once a month.)
Personally, I love the design of the fountain as well. It is sleek and simple, and the stainless steel look matches the appliances in my kitchen.
So in conclusion, we give the Raindrop 20 paws and two thumbs up!
Pioneer Pet actually has several different fountain designs and sizes. We recommend checking them out. You’re guaranteed to find a fountain that suits your needs!
