My hopes are high for a low maintenance system....time will tell.

Thank you for your post. I was wondering if the nipple were under the pressure front the hose. I made my own. I got the email from the chicken chic who is giving one away. And as I was looking at it I was thinking that would be a lot of pressure on the nipple. Thanks for the insight

Not at all....the valve is in the main body of the unit and controls the water allowed into the "arms"...so the pressure is no more than you would get in a two litre bottle with a nipple....hope this helps...
