    ...and before everyone rushes in responding telling me to contact Farm Innovators Inc. in Plymouth IN, this IS NOT THAT WATERER!!!! I promise.

    It's a different one, looks similar to it, but definitely different. The cord to the red base wraps around a wheel like structure beneath the base.

    If you have a waterer like this, PLEASE TELL ME WHO MAKES IT, & WHERE I CAN GET JUST A REPLACEMENT RESERVOIR ONLY.

    My reservoir has dry rotted and now leaks air so all the water runs out. Hey thanks, everyone.

    I just bought a heated water poultry fountain it is called
    sounds like the one I have, got it at our feed store,
    I saw it on line somewhere, just google it.
    I don't know if they sell parts or not.
    mine is a model 33, the company that the papers say is Allied Precision Industries inc.
    705 e North st Elburn IL 60119
    it is a plastic water, container for chickens.
    I hope this helps

    I did a google search and the closest I think I found was made by Vet-med. Unfortunately, when I went to vet med's website, it wasn't to be found. So Plan B was to try to patch the leak in the reservoir using Flex Seal, that miracle stuff as advertised on TV. Problem is, Flex Seal is a terrible product, it took 48 hours to dry, and still really didn't patch the leak, but did it good enough to create a vacuum in the reservoir. So time will tell. If I'd been smart I'd have just gotten a cheap spray can of silicone.[​IMG]
