Hi there! My flock is quickly expanding so I'm putting up a gravity fed chicken nipple waterer.
I was wondering if there is anything I can add to their water to help keep it clean and avoid bacteria growth in the hot summer months. The water reservoir won't be in direct sunlight, but the PVC with the nipples will. I know people add things like apple cider vinegar to water to promote good chicken health, and wondered if that, or something like that, would help keep the waterer clean too? I do plan to clean the system, but I would like to do it as little as possible.
Thanks!

If you are cleaning/refilling once a week, which I really think is appropriate, then you shouldn't need to add anything.
