Maintain the Fountain.

To maintain a cat water fountain, follow these general guidelines:

  1. Regular cleaning: Regularly clean the water fountain to keep it free from dirt, debris, and bacteria. Disassemble the fountain according to the manufacturer's instructions and wash the components with mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly to remove any soap residue.

  2. Replace filters: If your water fountain has a filter, replace it regularly as recommended by the manufacturer. Filters help remove impurities and keep the water fresh. Over time, filters can become clogged and lose their effectiveness.

  3. Check water levels: Monitor the water levels in the fountain and ensure an adequate supply of water. Refill the fountain as needed to prevent it from running dry. Be cautious not to overfill, as this can cause spills or leaks.

  4. Inspect and clean the pump: The pump is a crucial component that keeps the water flowing. Regularly inspect the pump for any signs of debris or buildup. If necessary, remove the pump and clean it according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  5. Clean the surrounding area: Water fountains can sometimes cause splashing or spills, leading to a wet surrounding area. Clean up any spills promptly to prevent slipping hazards or damage to flooring or furniture.

  6. Routine maintenance: Perform routine maintenance tasks such as checking for any signs of wear and tear, ensuring proper functioning of switches or buttons, and examining the power cord for any damage. Address any issues promptly or seek professional assistance if needed.
