Aqua Purr Cat Water Fountain Review

Having problems leaving water for you cats to drink while you’re out of town?

AquaPurr is a water drinking fountain that will help you regulate the water they drink straight from the tap without the dramas of humming from regular pet drinking fountains or the faucet being left on and wasting water.

What is the AquaPurr?

AquaPurr is a water fountain for your cats who are prone to turning on the faucet, especially when you’re away from home.

Or If you are concerned for your cats health due to common water contamination issues with regular water bowls that build up bacteria and mould as a result of still water, then the AquaPurr offers a new and innovative way to keep your cat hydrated.

Similarly, you can rest assured your cats won’t get thirsty because AquaPurr allows them to get their own water without your assistance.
When you purchase one for around $70, expect to get the following:

  • An 11.75in x 20.5in pressure-sensitive platform; custom sizes are also available. Underneath it, are 3M Command grip tapes to help the platform stay in place on your countertop
  • Dedicated fountain for your cat’s hydration purposes
  • Diverter valve to allow the normal use of faucet even after AquaPurr is installed
  • Aerator adapters to fit the diverter valve into almost any spigot size
  • Lifetime warranty on parts
  • No electricity or batteries needed to keep it running

AquaPurr water dispenser is ergonomically designed to fit on any countertop, hence the customizable platform size.

It has a pressure sensor that regulates the water flow, releasing the water when your cat steps on the platform and shutting the water off it when they step off the platform.

This simple functionality makes it easier for your feline pals to get the hang of using AquaPurr.

How It Works

Directly attaching AquaPurr’s diverter valve to your sink faucet with the help of the aerator adapter included in the package.

Once it’s attached, position the platform on your countertop and open the sink faucet.

Use the knob on the diverter valve to either redirect water to the fountain or let water flow directly into the sink as you would if you were to do the dishes.
AquaPurr has a pressure-sensitive platform that triggers the flow of water into the attached plastic spigot.

When at least 3lbs of pressure is applied on the platform, water is then released similar to a typical drinking fountain and now your cat has fresh drinking water to stay hydrated to.

Setup is a breeze.

There’s a detailed user manual and there are installation videos available online to help you assemble and set everything up.

Maintenance + Support

AquaPurr needs minimal cleaning, you only need to wipe off the platform for any grime from your cat’s paws or fur.

You don’t need to clean the spigot or refill the setup with water since AquaPurr is basically a faucet extension; there are also no filters to replace or clean as you would normally see in other cat fountains on the market, Simply put, AquaPurr is a maintenance-free pet water fountain drinking system.

As if the price isn’t good enough, the manufacturer provides a lifetime warranty on its parts.

How your Cat might react to the Aquapurr

Training doesn’t seems to be an issue.

According to some users who left reviews on the Aquapurr, their pet cats typically took 2-5 days to get used to AquaPurr.

If your cat used to drink from the faucet, this setup won’t cause any problems and may be ideal for your situation.

Once they’ve mastered how to use it, they won’t need to wake you up any more in the middle of the night purring to give them water.
Leaving the faucet turned on for AquaPurr raised concerns from a few users.

This is due to the fact that if leaks occur and it may be an issue.

Its recommended checking from time to time if your cats are just playing with it even when they’re not drinking the water.

They may accidentally turn the fountain around, spilling water onto the platform instead of into the sink.

Securing the plastic spigot with duct tape may do the trick.

The system is not perfect and still has room for improvement.

Still, owners give AquaPurr good reviews for its innovation and efficiency in providing water to pet cats.
There’s also a chance that the trigger underneath the platform may not spring back as expected after prolonged use, letting water flow even when there’s no pressure applied to it.

These are just some isolated cases, though.

The manufacturer guarantees that each package has been reassembled for leak testing before they’re disassembled and shipped to customers worldwide.

AquaPurr provides water only when needed, ensuring the supply is safe and fresh.
