    I'd like to get some plans to build a 50 gallon feeder and water. Please inquire for more info. Thanks -Will

    I don't know the exact size tub I used, but my feeder is quite larger, somewhere around 30 or so gallons...

    My new water system is still being worked on, it's going to be 55 gallons of holding reserve, but it will also auto fill... No pictures of that until maybe next week when it's complete...

    Thank you. Is that just straight pic pipe?

    They are cut down PVC drainage street elbows, see post #3 in the thread below, that is the same elbow I used and exactly how I cut the elbows for my feeder... I didn't put the ring on the outside though, I drilled a 4" hole and used a heat gun to heat up the tub and force the slightly larger elbow through the softened plastic tub, it holds tight as is and doesn't move...

    i think if you go through that thread you will even get the exact part number for the elbow, both Menards and Lowes by me carry it...
