    Wow, good job.

    I like you feeder and waterer.

    How does the waterer work? Nipples?

    Also how do you keep the feed from clogging up?

    The water has nipples we just started using the feeder so hopefully it will not get stopped up. I thought about a wedge in the tube where it splits off to help the flow

    OK, how big is your pipe?

    I had a 4" PVC pipe feeder and it was stopped up every time I checked it so I ended up just using a normal feeder.

    Mine was a 90 degree bend though so maybe that was it.

    Anyway good job it looks GR8

    I used the 4 inch pipe but I used a 45 degree angle. I might have to put a cone is the center to help distribute the feed.
