    "Best waterer I have had."
    Pros - Top filling, farm store sells replacement everything for it, which is amazing. I haven't needed replacements, because this is very well built.

    we have a five gallon and two 7 gallon water jugs they are great a little hard to clean out algae without a brush. but hold a lot of water
    dont lose the fill cap if you do a child's medicine bottle cap is a replacement of the right size

      Thanks for the tip, i love mine and it is so sturdy, many times over the winter the water froze in it and it is still like new.

    I have one to these types, and the cons are the 1/4-inch thick rubber ring that is the gasket, that attaches to the white plastic, not the lid. The instructions were to get the lid tight, but not enough to break the handle. I have bought and replaced the gasket 3-times since I purchased these last April. I use community water, and add apple cider vinegar to the water, but it sill creates mold, that you can't scrub off with your hand because of the size of the opening

    When I was a farm hand for some lady, she had these for her chickens. They were cheaply made and even indoors the handle broke off too easily and gallons of water leaked all over the coop :/

    No I don't work for them, as a matter of fact I don't work for anybody except myself right now. I had kidney failure in 2012 caused by allergy to antibiotics and currently drawing disability. I'm raising a few chickens to sell eggs and get some pocket money. I just like products that work and this type waterer always worked for me with no problems.
    If your sending it back and have to pay return shipping, I'll buy it from you and you can just ship it to me, I won't pay full price but we can negotiate a reasonable amount. I can pay with paypal. Send me a pm.

    Great waterers which outlast any others. If you have a brush of appropriate size and use a safe disinfectant like Oxine AH, they are easy to keep clean. Water dispersible supplements can be used in them too, unlike the galvanized waterers. Mine are seven years old and still in great shape.

    I order from Agway, they deliver feed and shavings to my house, so I don't ever go in to the store since it's a fair bit away. I asked if they had a large waterer (didn't ask for the price - my bad), they described it briefly and I thought it was the cheap, easy to clean waterer that I had for a few years that recently broke. Turns out it was three times the price and very different. Since we were leaving for vacation the very next day and we needed a waterer for our hens, I decided to give it a try. I might still ask if I can return the thing, like I stated before, I am extremely unhappy with it.
    Do you work for them or something?

    I totally disagree, I had no problems with them what so ever. Mine never leaked. If its to expensive why did you buy it to begin with?

    Hi LoneOak. I like simpler waterers. I find it to be a pain in the _ _ _ _ to fill. The little cap can get lost. There is always debri and disgusting stuff getting caught under the main plastic container and it's hard to get the container off to clean. The large cap never fits correctly on top and the water consistently leaks. Not to mention the fact that the thing is very expensive compared to other waterers. I don't like it. I'm pretty intelligent and can figure things out easily. I don't think it's me. Look at all the negative comments on here and you'll see most will agree, this water is not worth the money and trouble it causes.
