    You can use the nipples and make your own hanging waterer with a bucket, plastic pop bottle, etc...

    There are several companies that manufacture parts for automatic watering systems, and several companies that carry them. This link is the relevant catalog pages from one of my favorite supply companies:

    My rabbitry has a few dozen cages to it, so I need a fairly large system. My tank holds about 15 gallons, and has a toilet fill valve (complete with float).
