My PVC "True Auto" Waterer - Page 3

post #21 of 24

Our girls took to it with no problem, our only problem is, a couple of the nipples inside the coop are leaking.  DH has even refitted them with teflon tape and they are still dripping.  Has anyone had a problem with this and what did you do to remedy it.  any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is cool I have been searching for the easiest in the long run autofil waterer I can find and this is great as the Twinzmom said both inside and outside the coop. BTW Twinzmom I am not in swamp cooler area either what fitting did you find for the bulk head?

Ok so what do ya think I should do for the frigid winter months? I am going to have to run an extension cord whatever I do since I don't have electricity in the coop and the oulet is a little way away.

I cannot remember what my DH found to use in place of a swamp cooler, ill have to ask.
In the cold months we just disconnect it and go back to a regular waterer, which he made a heated base for
From a large round metal cookie tin with a light bulb inside to keep the water from freezing. Works great!
