Review/Giveaway: Himalayan Blue Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain


Did you know your pet needs approximately one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day? Ensuring proper pet hydration is extremely important to PetSafe. This July, the brand celebrated Pet Hydration Awareness Month to help educate pet parents about the importance of providing pets with access to clean, fresh water.

As the only pet fountains developed by a veterinarian, PetSafe’s Drinkwell pet fountains were invented in 1994 by Dr. Mary Burns, after noticing that her cat, Buckwheat, would only drink from a running faucet and would wait all day for Dr. Burns to turn the faucet on for her. In addition to providing the moving water source that cats (and dogs) seek, PetSafe’s Drinkwell pet fountains aid with proper metabolism, energy conversion and temperature regulation, as well as promote healthy kidney function and prevent urinary tract infections and disease in pets.


After garnering the majority of votes during the DIY Network’s Blog Cabin 2014 People’s Choice voting period, PetSafe® brand is proud to announce that Himalayan Blue will be the next color offered for its popular Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain. More than 390,000 votes were cast for the next pet fountain color, with Himalayan Blue beating out Taupe by receiving 76 percent of votes. PetSafe’s Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain is now available in the winning color on PetSafe.net.


Also available in red and traditional white, the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain is a stylish, ceramic fountain that freshly filters and continuously recirculates 70 ounces of free-flowing water for pets, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a normal water bowl. The ceramic design is more hygienic, easy to clean (top-rack dishwasher safe) and looks great in your home. The upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets, and the dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness, which encourages pets to drink more.

Key Features

* Ceramic design is more hygienic, easy to clean, and looks great in the home
* Dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness and encourage pets to drink more
* Upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets
* Low-voltage 12V system with submersible pump for safe and quiet operation

Our initial thoughts: I've heard of many cats who are quite particular about their water source, but Truffles isn't one of them. As long as her water bowl is clean and fresh, she's good to go. And while cats are often lackadaisical about water consumption, she hydrates herself on a regular basis. (Not in excess, however. After experiencing kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, and diabetes in my last 3 cats, I am very attentive to monitoring how much water a cat drinks.)

We've only had this fountain for a week, but Truffles took to it right away. Never having had anything like this before I wondered if she would be hesitant about the moving water (a sound that I find quite soothing) but after checking it out for awhile she approached it with no issues whatsoever. (I've also still kept her regular bowl down "just in case".) It was quite easy to put together, which was very important to me, and looks very sleek and stylish in the kitchen.

  14. What a great giveaway. We've been considering a pagoda fountain, but it seems like the local stores only stock the red ones, or maybe the white ones are just that popular. This new color is beautiful!
