    ya they are about two inches up from the bottom of a five gallon bucket sometimes they work fine other times they just keep dripping until the bucket is empty ..... i work all week so i was hoping to use the five gal. bkt so it would last a few days with a homemade heater under it ,,,the heater works great but the nipples seem kinda undependable
