Anyone who owns cats knows how difficult it can be to get them to drink the optimum amount of water. Cats need encouragement as they are very fussy about their water supply and the Kurma Best Automatic Pet Water Fountain may just give them the encouragement they need.
The three-tiered plastic fountain features three levels from which to drink, each bowl progressively smaller than the next. Water is kept in constant circulation with a submersible pump providing your pet with the fresh, cool, aerated water they need to keep them healthy. The three levels make it easy for pets of all sizes to comfortably drink and also good for pets with arthritic conditions or elderly pets who may not feel comfortable crouching to reach the lower bowl.
The design is simple and the bowls have rounded edges which make for easy cleaning as you do not have the tedious task of trying to clean sharp corners where dirt tends to collect.
The fountain holds a gallon of water which goes through a two-step filtration process. The water flow can be adjusted using a switch on the side of the pump so you can choose whichever flow your cat prefers. Nervous cats or cats who have never used a pet fountain before may prefer a slower flow initially until they grow accustomed to the fountain.
The fountain is BPA-free to safeguard your pet against unwanted chemicals and toxins leaching into the water and compromising their health.

How the KURMA Works
This water fountain consists of two pieces that slide into one another and once assembled there are three drinking areas at three different heights. Cats seem to be drawn to the top level most and love the bubbling of the water as it comes out the top.
Water overflows from the top bowl into the middle and lower bowls in a gentle quiet manner providing a constant supply of fresh cool filtered water.
Simply pour water into the bottom bowl using a jug, plug the cord in and watch as the pump draws water from the bottom bowl up into the top two tiers.
Moving water signals a fresh water supply to animals and attracts them to drink. The Kurma Automatic Fountain does just this ensuring that your pets are well-hydrated.
The Pros and Cons on KURMA the Pet Fountain
- Bleaching the unit often prevents bacteria formation.
- The top bowl is at water level and water spills over the sides when pets drink. Placing a protective mat under the fountain will prevent water damage to floors.
Whether you will love the Kurma Automatic Fountain is open to question as it depends on whether you are up for the regular maintenance and troubleshooting that most pet water fountains pose. You will do well to place this unit away from the cat litter tray so that cats are not tempted to put their litter into the water.
Some people may be annoyed that the water level needs to be kept at an optimum level for quiet function while others welcome the noise of the pump signaling to them that the unit needs filling.
The unit is suitable for pets of all sizes but the water capacity may not be enough for several larger dogs, therefore I recommend the unit for one large dog or two to three medium-sized dogs or several cats.
Overall, the Kurma Automatic Drinking Fountain serves the purpose of providing a constant supply of filtered water to your pet with an interesting three-tiered design. This fountain does tend to be quieter than other water fountain models on the market as the water is not free-falling therefore creating less noise. As long as you clean it regularly, replace the filters as needed and handle it with care it could be a great choice for you and your furry friends.
