watering nipples

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm looking into putting in a watering system in. I considered this before and found a place online to buy watering nipples for under a dollar each. Does anyone possibly know which place I'm talking about? Or know another place to pick them up for a low price. I'm planning an extensive watering set up.

Contact Neil Grassbaugh, here on BYC.  He sells them inexpensively AND charges very little for shipping.

Ditto...had two orders with Neil...he gets them out fast and shipping is very reasonable.

Hi NoSkiveez,  I got mine from Farmtek.  Be sure to get the kind you need because there are various types depending on how you will mount them.  I got the ones described here: http://www.farmtek.com/farm/supplies/prod1;ft1_poultry_equipment-ft1_poultry_watering_systems-ft1_hoses_nipples;pgwc1030.html

I
would also recommend getting the 9mm drill bit (as opposed to the english conversion, which is a bit off) if you go with the previously mentioned ones.  Of course this all depends on how you are mounting them (pvc pipe or bucket).  Here's a pic of my set-up where I have an old coleman cooler I use as the water reservoir so that I can add things to the water (ice jugs, medication, etc.).

Try www.qcsupply.com   about 2 bucks a piece and shipping is reasonable  well at least better than farmteks ep  i bought 6 of each  ( screw in , push in and stainless steel)

WARNING!!!!!   the stainless ones can not be tipped upside down or the weight and  nip  will fall out  and they hide in grass very well lol

found that out when i put them in 1.5 inch pvc and then tipped it up to move it    swithced to half inch  instead
