Pros: easy to fill, can add ACV, wide trough makes it easier for crested breeds to drink

Cons: little heavy to carry any distance, short cord

I have 3 of these. They are all placed on cinder blocks against a wall. Have never had any trouble with any of them leaking or with chickens dirtying them. I remove the entire bottom to fill then attach the bottom and flip it. I even have one in a covered outdoor run with just a bale of straw to block the west wind and it stayed thawed at near 0*F. Barring any electrical malfunction I anticipate these lasting a good long time.

I have 5 of them, and dislike them intensely. The only way to fill them is from the bottom, you must flip them upside down to access the fill hole (or to remove the entire bottom). If there is any water left in the waterer when you flip it, the water will go everywhere. likewise when you're done filling it, you must flip it back rightside up, and the water will splash. There's no way to stop the water from pouring from the upper "tank", so if it's not precisely level, it will drain. I had to replace the plastic handles with heavy wire so I could hang the waterers, and the electrical cord is only 2 1/2 ft long, so you need to place it right next to an outlet, or use an extension cord. I would not buy them again.
