It does not remove bacteria but the constant aeration from the moving water is supposed to help cut down on bacteria growth. It requires cleaning once a week, but can be washed in the dishwasher. I have two cats and the water reservoir lasts about a week.

There is a screen that prevents hair and stray particles from getting near the pump. It's that little plastic thing that fits over the opening between the front and rear sections of the bowl. There is also a carbon filter in the compartment that the water spills from, and that should trap particles and remove odors and even chemicals from the water.
I recommend rinsing the whole thing every day or every couple days. Unplug it, take it to the sink, clean the screen each time and change the carbon insert as recommended. It is very very easy to clean and maintain.
