Why is this important? A veterinarian created the Drinkwell Pet Fountain for Cats, knowing that a great deal of cats may not drink as much water as they should. This is one reason cat urine can become so concentrated that it can even predispose some cats to urinary tract disease. Cats with urinary tract or kidney disease have a critical need for water to support kidney function or prevent crystal formation and obstruction. This Drinkwell cat water fountain helps to encourage cats to drink more water by enticing them with its constantly flowing filtered water.

Operating InstructionsInspect the bottom of the fountain to be sure the motor is securely attached.Remove the housing cover and insert the filter cartridge down into the well in the housing. It fits in the well diagonally. The bottom of the filter is more narrow than the top and the black side faces outward (towards the spout). If the fit is too tight, it is either in upside down or in the wrong groove at the front (move it back one groove). Rinsing the filter before use will help remove any loose bits of charcoal, which are harmless.Fill the fountain with water (both the bowl and the housing where the filter sits).Place in desired location (if placing on carpet or wood floor, the use of a protective surface is recommended for under the fountain).Make certain the cord and plug are dry, then plug into a polarized outlet (one slot is larger than the other). The plug will only fit into a polarized outlet. Do not attempt to force it into an old unsafe outlet. Use an adapter if necessary. There are notches for the power cord on both sides of the bottom of the fountain. These are a pass-through for the cord. They are not for holding the cord snugly which might damage the cord. The cord should be passed through vertically. Do not turn the cord horizontally and force into a notch as this may damage the cord and create a hazard.To achieve the desired water level, add more water to the bowl after the unit is primed and running.Set the desired flow rate with the flow control knob, which is next to the ramp in the bowl (minimum rate at 11:00 position, maximum rate at 1:00 position).Add water to the bowl as needed (the bowl holds six cups of water). During regular use, do not allow the water level to fall below the inlet grate on the bottom of the flow control knob so that the motor does not run dry.Manufacturer's Safety InstructionsYou may need to place the fountain up off the floor if you have small children or large dogs who may knock it over or drink it dry.While the capacity of the next generation fountain as been increased, it is not recommended that any appliance be left running unattended over several days.Do not allow pets or children to chew on or swallow any parts.
