How do you seat the valve completely or tighten it completely as you say? Cuz I just bought one and don't see how to tighten the valve. Thanks

i don't know when you posted this, but did you have it suspended or sitting on the ground? It needs to be hanging so the weight of the bowl will activate the spring. i know this because i had it sitting on a level platform and was having the exact same problem. In fact, i was in mid-tantrum crafting a very eloquent email to customer service voicing my displeasure with their product when my daughter came in and told me she figured it out. Apparently all is well now. i'm just glad we got it going before i sent the email.

Sorry for the slow reply. Go to the auto-parts store and get a valve stem tool, maybe $2. Not sure if that is the proper name or not but they will know what you're talking about and demonstrate how to use it.

I have an issue with this waterer. I have a 5 gallon bucket and it will not get water in the bowl. I have adjusted the nut up as high as I can get it. Still no water. I have no idea what to do.

I was having the same problem with mine. If it's the kind that has the standard car tire valve stem, make sure the tiny valve with the push-pin trigger itself is screwed in tight. That fixed my problem.
