    I was told an automatic watering system can be made out of pvc. I believe someone called it a nipple-system. Can someone explain how this works and how to make it.

    Or maybe lead me to a good site that can instruct me how.

    Thanks

    I set one up for the chukar-quail condo.... notice the 5 gal bucket for the "water tower" on the left side. PVC pipe and nipples for the drinkers.... If using this inside go to the "drinker cups". Nipples "drip" just a little. Out side its no problem, not enough to even make a wet spot. But inside its a problem for me. The cups are alot more expensive and need to be cleaned out once and a while. But can be made drip free. You can see the set up I made for the chukar condo. Notice the white PVC running thru every pen. I put 3 nipples in each pipe. Good Luck, Bill

    EDIT TO ADD: I have fine NZ rabbits on the other side of this condo.... gotta love the white rabbits!
