"Leaks, leaks LEAKS"
Pros - Self-filling, good size for lots of beaks
Cons - Leaks, leaks LEAKS -- Big enough bowl to drown a chick
Got this as a gift. Hooked it up to a 5 gallon bucket because I hate leaving hoses on.
Not sure how long I dinked around with this piece of junk but no matter what I did it leaked and leaked and leaked some more, draining the 5 gallon bucket in an unacceptable amount of time. I'm generally good at figuring these things out, read the directions, looked on youtube, did everything you can do to this design and it was a huge water waster.
The only positive thing I can say is it has a nice capacity for lots of beaks. But the flip side to this is it is probably deep enough to drown a little chick if left in place- not something I learned the hard way, but should be considered if using around broodies with babies.
"Unreliable if on a rain barrel"
Pros - Easy to install
Cons - Not reliable, must be completely plumb
This found was completely unreliable for us. If it gets even the slightest big off balance, it will not work. We tried everything right down to constructing a wooden structure to hold it stead, but even that did not work efficiently. The hens knock at it and then it just stops filling. I would not trust this fount to keep my girls watered. We did have it rigged to a water barrel, so that could be a problem (pressure?) but everything else has worked fine connected in the same manner. I do not recommend.
"Love this so far!"
Pros - Automatic, easy to disconnect and clean, chickens like it
Cons - Gets more dirt/struff in it than a contained nipple system
My nipple watering system had a valve failure, so I switched to one of these. The chickens really like it and it's super easy to clean and manage.
