Regina J. – Glacier Point Pet Fountain

I had a Drinkwell fountain first, the Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain. I chose to get a Glacier Point fountain afterward for the following reasons:
• It was impossible to really clean the plastic on the outside of the Drinkwell fountain. I could scrub as much as I wanted but it still looked grungy and gross.
• The filter on the Drinkwell fountain I had was a joke. It wasn’t water tight; it looked like the water could easily flow over or around the filter insert.
• It was impossible to really clean the inside of the Drinkwell fountain without specialized tools; it clearly wasn’t made with ease of thorough cleaning in mind.
• There’s a flow level control knob over the intake of the Drinkwell fountain that would always get clogged with pet hair, it was hard to remove to clean and put back on.

I previously had a Drinkwell and one other brand, both of which were made of plastic. After much research I realized that the plastics used in these other fountains contained potentially harmful BPA so I went looking for a pet waterer that used glass or ceramic. All I could find from the big name producers were more cheap plastics ones. The couple I located that were not made of plastic had terrible customer reviews and were clearly not well made. I almost gave up but decided first to look into some products made by smaller producers and found the Glacier Point.

I opted for the Glacier Point fountain because it was made of ceramic. Even the reservoir bottle is made of glass, not plastic. I had a question which I e-mailed to Mr. Farris and he got back to me in short order which gave me even more reason to go with the Glacier Point. The final selling point was the grounded pump used in its construction that prevents the possibility of my pets being shocked and injured or killed while drinking from it. None of the big name, plastic fountains I’ve previously owned had grounded connections.

The decision to go with the Glacier Point was a no-brainer. I will also say it was considerably more expensive than the plastic fountains but for the health and safety of my pets it was well worth the additional cost. If I needed another pet fountain I’d get another Glacier Point, no question.

After purchasing the Glacier Point it was obvious my 3 cats liked it better than the old plastic fountains. My guess is that the water tastes better and does not absorb any unpleasant tastes from plastic materials. It also turned out to be much simpler and quicker to clean than the plastic fountains, and with the filtered intake tube the pump doesn’t end up getting clogged with cat hair like some of the previous fountains did. It’s so much better than other fountains I’ve owned there’s just no comparison.

Prior to purchasing a Glacier Point fountain, I owned a Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain. After a year of regular use and maintenance, the plastic components had become fragile and very difficult to clean, and then the pump failed.
I understand that inexpensive, imported products like the Drinkwell 360 have a short duty cycle. I’ve now chosen to invest in high-quality, longer-lasting products to reduce waste and conserve resources. I chose the Glacier Point fountain for the following features:
• Heavy-duty pump
• Ceramic basin
• Built in USA

To my knowledge, no Drinkwell product offers any of these features. It’s like comparing a plastic hammer to one made of wood and steel: you can swing each of them, but only one is tool, not a toy.

Oh boy!  I have 3 different plastic fountains sitting in my garage. I hope you are stealing customers from them because your fountain is so much better and more sanitary. The ceramic also keeps the water cooler than the plastic. I believe if given a choice of a plastic dish or a ceramic the cats would choose the ceramic because it doesn’t hold funny smells.

Since your fountain is pricier than the plastic units maybe people will still buy the plastic ones first and later switch to yours when they realize how much better for the animals it is.

Hi, I have had MANY plastic drinking fountains and they all broke in some form or another. The one I had before I bought my Glacier Point was a Drinkwell Platinum. Aside from a major flaw in their design that does not allow a thorough cleaning, especially in the tube that leads up from the pump to the filter, the seal on the plastic tub leaked and the adapter quit working. I ordered another adapter at my own expense and Drinkwell sent me another tub. The new tub also leaked right off the bat. Right then and there I began scouring the internet for a better alternative. I don’t understand how your FAR SUPERIOR and far more expensive product can possibly be competing with “…………..” mediocre product. Most people would not spend over a hundred dollars or close to two hundred unless they wasted countless dollars on cheap pet fountains that break down.
