Watering Cups? - Page 5

post #41 of 47
The trash can was plastic I used one size smaller than need and just thread it in that way. I don't remember off hand what size it was but the instructions are in with the cups

I didn't drill anything, I'm just using the water cans from the camping shop, the cups are on an adapter the same size as the bung on the water cans.

No, the basic cups don't have adapters, you can install those directly,  I was happy to pay for adapters so I could use them immediately.

You can use a little clear silicone to stop any leaks.

I bought the cups on Ebay with the 1/2" sleeves, I found an awesome idea on Pinterest that shows how to make a watering system with a bucket and a couple of other 1/2" pieces of PVC pipe. But I forgot to pin it so I will be going off of memory, I think the cups look great. I am even going to try them with my chicks to see if they can pick up on it from day 1. If I find the video I will repost it on here.

I just started using these cups and so far really like them. However, this morning I realized the water in the cups had frozen, although the water in the bucket was fine. I use a bottom heater that the bucket sits on. Any advice?
