    I don't know how big your brooder is, but ours is a large plastic tote, and so far we haven't had trouble with hot water. I keep the brooder light on one end, and the water near the middle. Because they kick so much stuff in their water I also empty and refill it a few times a day, so it stays fairly cool.
