    I bought a waterer off of Craigslist that looks like this...

    http://hickory.craigslist.org/grd/1103016836.html

    The person I bought from said you can attach it to a 5 gallon bucket but... I have no idea how to do that and what parts I need to make that work. Any help would be appreciated.

    hey ncchixlady all you half to do is get a five gal bucket and drill a hole in the bottom of the bucket on the side just a little bit smaller than the rubber hose and stick the hose in and fill with water.

    At the very least you'll need a 5 gal bucket with a
    tank connector (ED-7) then just keep your bucket higher than the drinker. hope this helps Will

    Ok... DH went to Lowes and got the adapter and it now works BUT how do I adjust it, how far do I fill the ball thing underneath... basically, how do I set it up to work. There were no instructions with it and I don't know what I am doing. Thanks so much.
