(continued) "We don't carry any spare parts for it but you can call the manufacturer at 850-526-7655 and ask for Charles, he can get what you need." So if you need replacement parts, call that number and you can order them. Having said all that- I like this waterer. It's easy to assemble and install, and was really very easy to hard pipe and set up with a good drain that's plumbed outside the stall, to prevent wettng bedding when cleaning. If you have some basic plumbing skills, you can easily turn this basic waterer into a permanemt, sturdy, and easy to clean fixture for use inside a stall. Even if you plan to just attach a water hose and leave everything as is, it's pretty good for the price.

I purchased these with plans to hard plumb them, not use a water hose, so I can't speak to using a water hose. Well, I will say that I've never liked using plastic connectors to attach anything to a metal water hose end- it's too easy to mess the threads up. If you're using a hose, be very careful when you screw it in, because if you mess the threads up, the connector will leak, as another reviewer mentioned. My initial thought is that the flap that covers the float valve, is awfully flimsy plastic. I'm wondering how it will hold up to my walking horses, who play with (and frequently destroy) anything they can get their teeth or hooves on... I wish it was metal, maybe galvanized steel or aluminum. Something sturdier. I may have a metal replacement cover made to fit it, if they break the plastic one. Regarding the plumbing- I wish the drain was bigger, the exit hole of the drain line is 1/2". Will clog very easily. Also I don't like that the drain opens by putting your hand into the bowl and unscrewing the plug. I bought a 1 1/2" threaded coupling, and replaced the bottom nut that holds the plug on, with this coupling, then hard piped a 3/4" drain line with a valve. So to drain the bowl I just open a valve, dont' have to get my hands wet. I haven't done it yet by my plan to enlarge the drain opening bigger than 1/2" is to cut off the nipple on the drain assembly, then drill out the hole to 3/4", to minimize clogging. Even using it straght out of the box, you'll have to remove any hay or junk your horse has dropped into the bowl, before you drain it, or the drain will get clogged. I have hard water, and float valves get mineral deposits on them and stop working after a couple years at most. I asked jeffers about replacement float valve parts,and this was their response: "We don't carry any spare parts for it but you can call the manufacturer at 8
