Pros: Metal handle that looks like it's made for hanging
Cons: Mine would not fill the trough
I bought this one because I like to hang the food and water and this one's metal handle appears made for hanging.
The problem I've had with mine is even though I was careful to line the outflow up properly it would not refill the trough after the chickens drank it. The trough would be dry and the reservoir would be full!!!!
I could jostle it and make it fill. This repeated several times.
A potential problem but one I haven't had is that the twist connection could allow the bottom to come off and lose all the water. It's just not very secure that way.
Not a problem but I'd really like a 2 gallon size waterer made for hanging. 3 gallons is just a little heavy for me. I did try filling it with only about 2 gallons instead of 3 and then it just wouldn't hold the water and allowed it all to spill out.
I let you know how the replacement does.
Me again. I have received the replacement unit from the company. But it's been cold enough that I won't use it till the weather warms as I'm using my 3 gallon warming waterer from Premier to keep the water from freezing.
I am appreciative the company has been responsive to my needs. I am upgrading my star rating for this now. But I would suggest anyone beware of any that might be of the more defective design.
