Both fountains run silently when full, however are likely to make an obnoxious buzzing noise when low on water—it’s audible even from a number of rooms away.

And it’s made of the same plastic material, so grime wipes right off. That stated, it doesn’t make any terrible grinding noises when the fountain is low; the hum simply will get louder.
