This pump works well with the Drinkwell 360 and is as good or better than the original pump that came with the fountain. I clean it thoroughly every week and I top up the water every two days to keep my 3 cats happy. These are a bit of a nuisance to clean but other than that, I have no complaints. If you don't clean it well and top up the water, don't expect it to last long. I don't use the foam filter anymore because my cats do not shed fur near the fountain. So far, I tend to get at least 2 years of function from the original pumps so I hope this one will do the same.
