Ceramic Pet Fountains

It is hard to argue with the fact that if you have pets, having a pet fountain just makes sense. But when you drill down into the available fountains, you will tend to gravitate to one type or another based on your tastes in style, function, and need for any accessories you add to be clean. All three of those reasons are why many people choose a ceramic pet fountain. This type of fountain gives you style that is a definite upgrade over a plastic bowl type of fountain. Ceramic is heavier duty, stylish, and cleaner than a plastic bowl could ever be. There are not a lot of different ceramic pet fountains on the market, but there are two that we highly recommend.

Sanitary Ceramic Made in USA Pet Water Fountain

This pet fountain is a break from the traditional round bowl types of fountains on the market. It features a large rectangular shape with an open water area which is perfect for multiple pets, especially cats to drink from. The size of this fountain makes it compete with the Drinkwell Big Dog Pet Fountain for those homes with large pets. The foam filter is very simple to change, and the stream of running water is substantial enough to make drinking fun, while not so powerful that it makes the fountain noisy. In fact, customer reviews overwhelmingly recommend this fountain for its quiet function. This fountain is the only one currently on the market that has a grounded electric plug suitable for GFCI use. All other fountains have ungrounded plugs. this is a big safety upgrade over other fountains.

    After having several pets pass away with cancer over the years, I’m very committed to non-toxic producs for my pets. I was concerned over BPA in plastic dishes and fountains, but I’m also concerned over lead in ceramic products. Can you recommend fountains that are leadfree for my pets?

    Hi Barbara,

    As you know, there are not a lot of choices in ceramic pet fountains. Out of the 4 currently on the market, 2 are known to be lead free. These are the PETCO Ceramic Pet Fountain and also the Sanitary Ceramic fountain shown at the top of this page. Unfortunately that one is not available at the moment, and we are not sure if it will be made available again in the future. The PETCO fountain has received good reviews so I have no problem recommending that one. The other 2 ceramic fountains are made by Pioneer Pets, and as far as we know they have not disclosed the status of lead in their fountains. I do have an e=mail into them, and will report back here with any reply.

    One positive note; while it is true there is lead found in some common glazes used on ceramic products, the risk of lead leaching is largely confined to those used for food as they are subject to repeated heating and cooling over time. The risk of lead leaching appears to be low when dealing with things like pet fountains.
