Temperatures are hovering around 5 degrees here... and I need a new heated waterer. I was using a 3 gallon plastic one.. the kind with the red base and a translucent plastic top.. that you fill from the bottom. However.. I hate this thing. It falls apart when I try to fill it.. you have to fill it from the bottom and the plug set up is ridiculous. I need a new one!!! I was toying with the idea of getting one of those heated metal bases and getting a metal waterer to put on top. Interested to hear what you thoughts are on this. What do you use. Thanks.
