    Or will it destroy the nipple waterers?

    I've heard you can't use Apple Cider Vinegar with metal...

    For plastic containers (used by most, if not all, nipple waterers) ACV is fine. ACV will corrode the galvanized metal-type waterers.

    How much are you feeding them? In a dilution you can use rubber etc... its not going to bother it.
