"Convenient Water Source"
Pros - Water/Feed levels are easily seen. One gallon of water weighs a lot less than three! Simple to keep clean.
Cons - Sometimes feed builds up in the openings, when used as feeder. Calcium build up from hard water, encourages algae growth during the Summer months.
I really like this water fountain. In addition to the giant water founts, it is a convenient water source for the chickens while they are out foraging. I have one under the trees, in the front and back yards. I also use one up at coop, in the recreation pen. The chickens always have water near by. It's also very handy to have an extra one for when you need to add some medicine to their water, or other special recipes for them to drink.
As for durability, they are made of BPA free plastic, and last for several years. The oldest container I have, is five years old. It is the clear container that will eventually crack from exposure to the elements. But, I discovered it can be easily repaired with some "Flex Seal". The green screw on base can also have a new life, as it fits other containers!
It will last longer, if you keep it clean. This is good for the health of the chickens too. I use 2 parts Baking Soda to 1 part Citric Acid, sprinkle in the container and lid. Then, just add water...it will foam up and break down the calcium, just give a little scrub with a brush, and rinse.
Flip over a sturdy flower pot, and set the water fountain on top. The chickens love this product, I do too!
"Biggest Fan !!! Buy Dozens"
Pros - Easy to use, easy to see levels, simple to clean, chickens love them, whole seed flows well from them, chickens don't flick food from them as much
Cons - NOT dishwasher proof. I have melted three of the clear tops
OMG! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these feeder/waterers! I have recommended them to all my buyers and to all that come to me for consultation. They work so well. I literally own at least 14 of these. And I make sure all new chicken owners have two.
