Pros - It only holds 2 gallons so it not too heavy to carry around, it's very easy to fill up and clean, etc.
Cons - None
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill up compared to other waterers I've had for example you don't have to twist the cap on the correct way to get the waterer to work properly ) It's metal so so it won't get scratched or break like the plastic and glass ones do.
Cons - Rusts in less than 2 months, Leaks worse than a sink that has not been visited by the plumber in 50 years.
I spent $20.00 on this dang waterer thinking it would be good and durable, and worth my investment, WRONG! It leaked so bad, was so hard to use, and totally not worth my money. Within 2 months it was so rusted I could not use it any more, and I was actually relieved to throw it away, I was tired of the neighbors calling to ask if we were alright because I screamed obscenities at it daily. The feed store did not even give me my money back with a receipt, and I took as good care of it as possible.
Absouletly love it. No leaking works wonderfully. Great if your not going to be home all the time. The only problem I have is carrying it back to coop I do spill it on myself. My water source is in the front of my yard so spills are to be expected lol. Water stays cleaner than another waterer I had. I have no problems with it overflowing at all. Mine works the way its supposed to. I do have mine on a few pieces of wood so water stays cleaner. I know its not level and I still do not have any overflowing problems.
