Diy horizontal waterers

  1. i would love to see pics of your DIY horizontal nipple waterers. I've seen many bucket type but is there other ways of making them? Possibly that could connect to a hose?

    I don't bother with auto-fill hoses. I just use a bigger container where needed.

    You could mount the horizontal nipples in a pipe fed by a hose, they fit perfect in a 1/8" threaded fitting.......you might need a pressure regulator, but you wouldn't have to worry about freezing where you are!
