Ok.....I have looked at the past posts here regarding making a waterer with a 5 gallon pail. Obviously, this Polish guy (me) is doing something really wrong. I purchased 3, 5 gallon pails at Lowes and 3, 14" glazed potted plant trays that are about 3-4" deep. I drilled 4 holes, about 3/4" ea, around the bottom of the bucket. Placed the pail on top of the plant tray and filled it up. All of the water, down to the level of the holes, simply drained out and over the top of the plant tray. I'm guessing there is something simple here that I'm missing....can someone help.....please?!!
