Like most cats, my cat doesn’t want to drink still water. To keep the water moving, I got him a water fountain. I have noticed that the amount of water that came out of the fountain was slowly decreasing. So I decided to take a look at the pump. After taking apart the pump, I saw that the blades were covered in hair, and it was binding up and not pumping correctly.

If your DR-160 Submersible Water Pump pet water fountain is not working properly, follow this guide to clean the blades and get it working again. This guide is simple and safe to complete.

Hi, thanks for your aid, I dismounted the device and now it’s being cleaned with a mix of vinegar and water (my problem is our water has a lot of lime). We’ll see if it works or if we have to buy a new one, but your tips have been useful.

Thank you, fantastic breakdown of the breakdown. In our case, it was not cat hair, but a sort of “slime” along the magnet part of the fan/blade spindle. This was cleaned and returned to the motor, and with a quick spin of the hand, it was moving freely again. Thank you again, and best wishes for you and your cats.
