Laraine P. – Glacier Point Pet Fountain

Before purchasing the Glacier Point Fountain, I was a long time owner of an Original Drinkwell Fountain. I cleaned the Drinkwell daily but still couldn’t resolve the problems with the constant mold build up, the warm temperature and slimy feel of the water or the noisy weak motor. When I finally had only one of my five cats even willing to sip out of the Drinkwell, I decided to purchase a new fountain but only one with a ceramic reservoir.

The Glacier Point Fountain was the only ceramic one that met my high standards. I wanted a ceramic fountain made in the U.S.A. not China. I needed a fountain which would provide enough water capacity for five cats. Also it had to have a spout with water flow that mimicked the water coming from a faucet. The Glacier Point Fountain met all my needs plus offered the added features of a grounded electrical cord and two filters.

Though the Glacier Point Fountain was more expensive than any other ceramic fountain, it was well worth the price. I now only do a easy weekly cleaning and a monthly one. There are absolutely no mold issues, no warm water, and no noisy motor. All five of my senior cats love this fountain and so do I.

I have had a Drinkwell plastic fountain for about 5 years. I started having reservations about it because it was somewhat hard to clean and I wasn’t convinced that it wasn’t harboring germs in the plastic even after I cleaned it. I also didn’t see how the filters were helping since the water in the fountain went over the top of them and wasn’t forced to pass through them. After I lost my second cat in a row to kidney disease (actually the second one had severe kidney disease and then got cancer in her mouth and died last November), I felt more strongly that I wanted to look into something better for my cats’ water supply, both for their sake and for mine. I had seen a ceramic one in a catalog and that’s how I found out that such things existed. I decided to look into ceramic ones that would give me a way to clean them more thoroughly and more easily (close to sterilizing it if possible) and came across your fountains in my Internet search. I was pleased that yours had the characteristics I was looking for, and after learning more about how it worked and what the pros and cons might be, I decided to order one. I am glad that I did.

I actually owned two Drinkwell Plastic Fountains prior to owning the Glacier Point. Not only is the Drinkwell Fountain hard to clean, but it also holds less water, and doesn’t keep the water at a temperature suitable for my cats. I own two Hairless Sphinx and with the Drinkwell Fountain I had to continuously add ice to the water in order for them to drink the amount of water they should be drinking (which is more than a haired cat drinks). My two cats now will empty the bottle in a day and a half with the Glacier Point, where the Drinkwell it would be three days. The cats love the water, I love how easy it is to clean, the lack of growing bacteria (that you get from using plastic), and that I don’t have to add ice to the water to encourage them to drink more. I have recommended the Glacier Point fountains to everyone I know that has cats that they care about..

In early 2010 one of our cats was diagnosed with FUS (Feline Urologic Syndrome) Among the recommendations given to us by our veterinarian was to purchase a pet water fountain. The same day we began shopping for a fountain.  We ended up purchasing three fountains locally, the “Drinkwell 360″ the “Petmate Deluxe fresh flow” and the “Hagen CatIt Fresh & Clear”. This began a very frustrating few weeks. Both of our cats refused to drink from any of them. Our vet suggested it may be the smell of our water, so we tried; soft water, hard water, refrigerated soft water, refrigerated hard water, warm bottled water, refrigerated bottled water, warm filtered hard water, cold filtered hard water, warm filtered soft water, and cold filtered soft water. Our cats scoffed at all of these waters in all three fountains.

During this time we cleaned the fountains as suggested by the manufacturers which became tiresome with the Drinkwell, it was very difficult to clean.  We then purchased the Glacier Point fountain. Within one day both cats were drinking from it with any water we used, and has been a joy to clean.

Thank you for selling a product that was not available from any other company including Veterinary Ventures Inc.

Sincerely, Adam St. P

I had a Drinkwell before the Glacier Point fountain. I bought a Glacier Point for the following reasons:

1. It reviewed quite well on the Amazon website
2. Its cooling system actually cools the water as opposed to just moving it
3. The build quality of the materials and the fountain are better than anything else out there I could find
3. The Drinkwell fountain was very difficult to clean
4. The Drinkwell fountain stopped working (the pump broke) after approximately 9 months

My name is Megan Wilson and I recently purchased a Glacier Point Fountain from you. I did have a plastic fountain before purchasing the Glacier one and it caused me no end of trouble.  I was always spending money to replace the carbon filter, the wimpy pump that was IN the water was always getting clogged and it quit working twice. Not knowing any better after the first pump quit working I went out and purchased a 2nd plastic fountain thinking the 1st was fluke. Of course after all the same headaches the 2nd one quit working as well.

At this point I put my husband in charge of finding us a better water system for our 2 cats. He did extensive research and your product won hands down. I was hesitant at first due to the price but I have never been happier! Not only is your product quieter then the plastic ones, it has a bigger reservoir (doesn’t run empty half as often as the plastic ones do) and I am convinced that I can continue to use this fountain through the life of my pets and probably much longer.

I had a couple of different plastic fountains several years ago but due to not being able to sanitize them safely and the issues with plastics (BPAs etc) I threw them out and used glass/ceramic bowls. It wasn’t until I found your product that I felt safe and happy to get a fountain again.

Yes, I did buy Drinkwell’s fountains, Drinkwell Platinum pet fountain and 360 pet fountain and even Cat IT product. Currently, those products are sitting in my garage. My 2nd Drinkwell Platinum pet water fountain is still unopened. I bought the 2nd Drinkwell Platinum pet water fountain almost one year ago.

I really was not satisfied by those pricey, cheap plastic and hard to clean products; oh, probably, made in China. And, I knew that cats would often get allergy by plastic products. Therefore, I have looked around from the Internet and found a few ceramic pet water fountains. Most of them are made in China. Well, products that are made in China always have quality concerns. Finally, I found a pet fountain that made in the U.S.A., Glacier Point. Even though the price of Glacier Point was higher than those massed productions, I was willing to pay more to get safe product.

Hi, Barry.

First, I’ve been meaning to write to let you know how wonderful your product is! My four guys love and and drink readily from it. The three bottles are better than two as far as keeping the flow going.

I don’t remember which brand of drinking fountain we bought before yours but we returned it to the store because we couldn’t get it working. We called the company first and followed their instructions. It worked only momentarily, and then stopped again. Husband refused to even consider an exchange. Off to the Internet I went in search for one he would consider trying…eventually, finding yours.

The inferior product put this customer back in the market for a suitable fountain. Your fountain, with the ceramic bowl (which is far superior to plastic) and the excellent filtration system was all we needed to see in order to choose your product. If I could have afforded the upgrade, I would have chosen the one with the chiller. My guys like cool water. Since two of them have had surgery for urinary tract issues, fresh water is critical. Plain and simple, your product is better!

Hello Barry,

Although I did not buy a plastic fountain first, I found yours specifying ceramic as opposed to plastic fountains for my cats and dogs. I have long thought that there was good enough science that showed we show not use plastic to drink out of for ourselves, that I certainly would not use them for my beloved animals to drink out of. Also I have had my vet confirm this and he felt there was correlation with feline acne. We had two cats with repetitive problems with that. When I used my search engine I specified anything BUT a plastic waterier. Also I was concerned with the quality of Drinkwell fountains and ruled them out in the process of my searching people’s opinions on various fountains. I did not find your company by accident. I found you by process of elimination. Drinkwell was eliminated from the first.  If your company had not been in existence I would not have bought anything if Drinkwell had been the ONLY choice.
