Waterers are constructed of heavy gauge galvanized steel with rolled edges for safety. Features arched inner handles for added strength. Brass valves and rubber seals produce a positive water shut-off. Seams tested to prevent leaks.Also feature locking pin
Pros - Easy to fill and use. Water stays clean. Holds plenty of water for when you're going to be away.
Cons - Don't have any
Really like this. Wanted something that was easy to fill, holds a lot, doesn't leak and keeps the water clean. This does the trick! I also like the look of it since I have similar for the feeder and both have that farm look and work great! I didn't want plastic, which can crack in the winter plus I just don't like plastic and the galvanized was way less expensive than plastic ones
Pros - Easy to clean, sturdy, can hold a full 5 gallons, which is ideal
Cons - It can freeze together in wintertime (Manitoba winters), and tends to rust when it's not cleaned properly.
I've only had mine for 1.5 years, but I love that it can contain so much water. I have mine on a wooden perch to keep it away from the ground. Very happy with this waterer, I'm hoping to purchase a heated element or something to put underneath to keep it warm during the winter.
