Er, I mean supplies. Need pump advice from someone who knows their fish tank equipment.

I am going to build something like this homemade cat fountain
over the weekend.
I am overwhelmed with the choices available for pumps. Wish list:
1) An off/on switch (if possible).
2) Will either have a good gentle flow for this purpose or will be adjustable (not looking to build a water park, just a good trickle will suffice).
3) Will be quiet (don't want a loud electric pump hummmm that will deter the cats).
4) Easy to clean.
Thanks in advance for recommendations of specific pump models.
Why I am doing this (in case you are wondering): Cats like moving water
. All the purpose built fountains I can find have plastic basins made in China. We want to minimize the risk of bad plastic stuff leaching into the water. I am aware that the pump will be plastic. Just minimizing.
