I was really excited about trying this product out whenever I found the deal especially since my previous fountain stop working. There are pros and cons with this fountain, overral I would say I am satisfied. I don't really care for the petal part of the fountain, I would recommend using this piece if you have a cat or a small dog. The biggest problem I have with this product is there really isn't much drinking space for my dog maybe the petal is in his way or something because every time he gets water all over the place. I will say that the mat that came with this is a plus as well as the cleaning tools.
