This bowl works out great - simple, effective, goes in the dishwasher. The only problem is that sometimes when it refills, it bubbles like an office water cooler. At first, that scared the cats, but now they've gotten used to it.
This is a great product. Its's simple, fool proof, & comes at a great price. The simple design means it will always work and nothing can go wrong. My 18 year old cat started using it as soon as i put it down.
I was going to buy the electric water fountain but my son didnt like the idea of the water and electricity mix - even though its safe-so we chose this option. I wasnt sure if the cats would go near the water tray since it was quite a size but there was no problem and after one weekend we use it all the time now.
