Just like us, our feline friends need clean water to stay hydrated. There are plenty of fancy water fountains on the market but many of them have major design flaws. Some of them could even be dangerous. The Elfin Fountain is a clever pet water fountain with MagDrive technology to ensure all electronic components are outside the water tank while still inside the base. The good folks behind it were kind enough to send us a unit to review.
Our Elfin Fountain was a breeze to set up. It came with a sleek base and removable components, so you can clean everything fast. The filter is easy to install and takes care of hair and other particles. To turn on the fountain, you have to press the button on the back of the base. There are two modes for you to choose from: Timer & Intelligent. In timer mode, water is given to your pets for 20 seconds every 15 minutes.
In Intelligent mode, water is dispensed when your pet is detected near the base. This fountain was impressively quiet for us and didn’t scare our pets. It is completely cordless and lasts up to 30 days per charge. There is also a USB-C port at the bottom. You can easily route your cable under the base to charge the unit.
You can lift and fill Elfin easily. You can also see how much water it has left through its body. The fountain gives you feedback on its base when running low on water. We tested it with a few cats and all of them liked drinking from it. In fact, a few of them found playing with it quite amusing. You will want to use this on a flat surface to make sure it operates properly.
Overall, we found this pet fountain quiet easy to set up, silent, and elegant. It is designed with your pets’ safety in mind. The Elfin fountain doesn’t weigh a whole, so you can easily move it around. All the parts are easily removable for fast cleaning. This project has already had major success on Kickstarter.
