Sometimes water around the fountain is caused by pets drinking. Some pets are prone to spilling. Watch your pet when he drinks to see if this is the cause. If it is, you can purchase a fountain mat or other water-resistant mat to place under the fountain.
This black stuff is loose charcoal from the filter and is completely harmless for your pet to drink. The charcoal filter is made of organic coconut shells. Rinse the filter in cold water before placing it in the fountain to prevent this. Some filters may shed more charcoal than others due to differing consistency of charcoal in each batch of filters, so don't be surprised if some filters leave behind more charcoal dust than others.Close
We recommend cleaning your fountain once a month or more often if you see too much hair, dirt or debris in the bowl. Fountains are top-rack dishwasher safe except for the pump.Close
