    I bought some nipples on Ebay and they arrived from China. They look and perform identically to my FarmTek nipples. I hope you have the same experience.

    They are not the same as farmtek but work very similar. They are lower quality but function ok.

    G-day I purchased mine off amazon. Five for ten bucks. Used a two inch pipe abs plastic black as white encourages alge ( not sure the metric conversion for size) five feet of green garden hose attached with fittings to a five gal bucket( grey color again for alge) and piped to the two inch abs pipe with five nipples and it works great.

    Quote:Nearly all of the desperate requests for help I receive regardiing poorly funcioning water nipples relate to the cheap ones from China.

    But you can save your money and buy from the Communist Chinese!

    The nipple drinkers that I sell are the same as FarmTek and QC Supply sell are made in Holland. I also have two brands made in the USA that looks a bit differnt so nobody here will buy them. There is also a very fine drinker from Germany. The nipple drinkers from China are pretty much a third world quality product.

    Does anyone have pictures of their set-up? I'm a newbie and would like something easier than dumping poo-ey water.

    Thanks!
