They are automatic so you do not need to water chickens as often
They do not leave puddles below like nipple waterers
They are contained so there is no backflow meaning there will be much less need for cleaning and less green growth that is very common with standard waterers
The Cup has a twistable base allowing you to mount horizontally or vertically
They work with or without the PVC Bracket or the Cage bracket.
We recommend the using the brackets for a more flexible system. If you mount directly into pipe without a bracket, it is difficult to remove the cup from the base without destroying the seal to the pipe. With the Tubing bracket, you can move each cup freely to different areas with ease.
Cups are designed to work with a gravity system with pressure around 5 psi. Attaching directly to a garden hose will cause the cups to overflow.
Cups are designed to be fed from a low-pressure water source (5 psi or less), such as a gravity-fed system, or a water line with a pressure regulator installed. There are many ways to setup your system to work exactly as you desire and we are here to help you with any questions.
